This review is from: Belkin F8Z441-P Tunebase FM with Handsfree
Pros: Nice dock, charges phone.
Cons: Radio transmitter is too weak. ClearScan doesn't really work.
ClearScan ends up finding stations that are coming in clear which you can't broadcast through. Once you find a good station (manually) the transmitter isn't powerful enough to broadcast over it, so the resulting audio is filled with static. On top of that it compresses audio horribly. Some compression is expected as your a transmitting over radio, but this thing just destroys audio quality. It can also be a bit dangerous trying to fiddle with the thing to make it work when your driving. You'll end up constantly trying to re-tune it to find the best single.
I should mention I live in the suburbs of San Francisco. I can't imagine this thing working anywhere but rural areas.
Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and just get a new stereo box that has an aux in and play your iPhone through that. It will work much better.
