FM Transmitter Buying Guide

FM Transmitter comes with different features from different brands, as per there is no big brand like Samsung, Apple that makes these devices. But some brands have made their name like Nulaxy by providing the quality FM transmitter devices from years.

But it’s not always that we go for the brand, some other new companies also provide the good product at low price. Here I am writing this small buying guide for FM transmitter for the car that can help you select the best.

What Should We Look for While Buying FM Transmitter

What we are looking cannot be clear until we know our requirement. As after analyzing all the available FM transmitter device, I found out that all FM transmitter need your car DC port or Cigarette port to the plugin.

Your DC port generally has a connection to your stereo, so when you plug in the device like FM transmitter, it can transmit music files to your stereo and it also provides power to your device.

Now before buying you should whether your car has this port or not, well all car whether new or old has this port at the center of your dashboard.

Now you have located your DC port, now you need to look that your hands reach to that port comfortable while driving or not. Then according to that, you can choose your device. Like we have some options, flexible hose, fixed or long cable. If the port is comfortably accessible you can choose the fixed one or flexible. Well, I prefer flexible hose as you can position the device according to your need. But if it is far from your hand, then you can choose the long cable.

Other basic things that we need to look into a Fm transmitter device are

  1. No Of USB Ports: More the no of USB port, it will be beneficial for us. As we are engaging our DC port for the device, so we need alternative USB port for charging. Well, all these devices come with at least one USB port(Hybrid). Can be used both for a charging or reading media files from flash drives. But you can use one function at a time, either charge or play music with the drive. So it is good to have more no of USB options, so we can charge while we play. Some devices come with 3 USB, two for charging and 1 for reading. Also, you must look for the output current for fast charging.
  2. Media Streaming Options: We always want more, and many companies providing all that we need in these compact devices. AUX, Bluetooth, USB, TF card these are the basic requirement. You got multiple options to play music on your car. For Bluetooth just check how fast is the pairing, auto connects option and connection breakage.
  3. Handsfree Calling: It’s very useful feature, you must check whether your Bluetooth device comes with a mic and handsfree calling or not. This is the required one, as with this you can attend your calls without touching your phone. You must also check about voice clarity and echo cancellation. As some device produce echo for the user on another end of the call.
  4. Audio Quality: In the car, there are lots of surrounding sounds with your car sound. Now your device should work to cancel all these noises to give you crystal clear audio. It will enhance your music experience.
  5. Well, there is no end of the features, but these are the basic and required ones that an FM transmitter must have. And if an FM transmitter comes with a remote then that can be a plus for you.
