This gadget has good connectivity but I couldn’t use it because whenever I use it, my car’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) light comes up. While I was using this gadget, the TPMS light came up and I took my car to Honda Services (my car was Honda CR-V). Once, the technician couldn’t find anything wrong with my car and he reset the system and light disappeared. I didn’t even got home when the light came up again. So I went back to the technician and he asked if I had installed anything new in my car. I told him I had this gadget. He told me to remove it and he reset the system and the light disappeared. The light didn’t come up again. I spent $120 on my car for diagnosis. Out of curiosity, I one day, started to use the gadget and immediately the TPMS light came up and later I stopped using it and, guess what, the light disappeared. At least, if you drive a car like mine, don’t buy this stuff. I don’t know if it also affects other car brands. Waste of money ( the gadget itself and technician fee). Does the manufacturer have any solution?
I purchased the base model to use for a Blue Tooth to Auxiliary connection on my car radio. I noticed that the noise generated by the Nulaxy was annoying. It is a constant hum and static when music is not played. When music is played,, unless very loud, I can still hear it. I know that the source of the noise is the Nulaxy itself, and not my phone because I hooked my phone ear jack directly to the aux input on the radio and it was silent. I thought that the new upgraded version of the Nulaxy would have reduced or eliminated the noise, but it is still just as bad. The designers of the device need to pay attention to this because if they can solve this noise problem, the device will be perfect.
I received this product, and it's absolutely horrible. The screen they show on Amazon looks clear and vibrant, the actual screen you really can't even see. I know it was cheap (both from a pricing perspective as well as a quality perspective). Horrible Horrible product. Swipe to another product.
I use this on my Note8 for running a GPS app and calling customers.
Pros: Haven't had an issue with it connecting to the phone's Bluetooth. Set up is easy; didn't need any instructions. Cons: Call volume is lower than other sounds. Call's sounds are clear, but the other party says it sounds like you are talking from across a large room. The unit doesn't have the power to keep the radio from humming/crackling when there is no sound coming from it. I tried it at both the upper and lower end of the channel range. If you are within 2 blocks of a power line, the static is loud enough that I have to turn it off.
I just got this in the mail I was super excited to finally be able to listen to my own music as I have a 1998 Ford Taurus all I have is the radio. The radio gets very repetitive and I can’t afford a new stereo deck so I thought this would be the solution. I was wrong. I have to turn the devices volume all the way up to the max which is 30 and my stereo up to 30 which normally listening to the radio volume 6 is loud. No matter what volume I had it on, I just couldn’t get over the loud static sound. Also I could hear my engine it seemed like through my speakers or maybe it made my car run weird I’m not sure I don’t know much about cars. But I do know I won’t use this again. The only good thing is the Bluetooth pairing it is automatic when you turn your car off and back on your phone pairs with it quick. Another down fall though is I feel like I’m going to rip my dash out when I try to pull it out of the cigarette lighter thing which also makes me not want to use it. I guess I’m back to the boring radio and I’ll have to save up for a new stereo deck. I’m super bummed.
I must say I was super excited when I found the Nulaxy KM18 FM Transmitter since I have no aux in my car. Seeing so many good reviews and the great price definitely sounded like a good idea. Delivery was super fast. I followed the instructions, set up is kinda easy once you find a free FM frequency with reduced noise. Sound is very good from my smart phone through the Bluetooth. You have to play a little with all 3 volumes to figure out best way between phone volume, KM18 volume and car stereo volume. But when it comes to turning the device on and off there is no way to do that. So you have to unplug it and plug it back in everytime. And another thing that is very unpleasant is how hard you have to fight the device to go in the car charger/lighter and how difficult it is to take it out everytime. To be honest I may not keep it because of those reasons. I don’t want to damage my car cigarette lighter plug and not be able to even charge my phone.
This product works sporadically. It is a good idea, but if the radio picks up just a sliver of a station it messes with the wireless reception. I have tried it for over a month but it is frustrating because you will be driving down the road listening to something and it just glitches out and you have to search for another channel which is a manual function and change it on the radio and the device. Not very conducive to safe driving. I wish I had just returned them when I could have, but I wanted to give them a chance. Easier to just listen to my music/podcasts through the phone than this.
Everything about this product is fine except that it can't maintain a bluetooth connection for longer than 20-25 minutes. I've tried with multiple different devices and always get the same result. It's frustrating when you're driving to work and in the middle of the highway for some reason it unpairs with your phone. I use bluetooth extensively and this is the only device that I have pairing issues with. Very frustrating, I do not recommend this product.
The volume control is ok but my car radio and Spotify noticeably does not play as loud when connected to the Bluetooth. It used to connect automatically as soon as I turned on my Bluetooth but now I have to find the device name and connect in my settings. The absolute worst part is sound quality. I was hoping the microphone would pick up my voice but all calls complain that they can barely hear me unless I lean over the wheel and speak almost directly into the microphone. I think it’s a great idea that is poorly executed. I’d say find a different model. Possibly one that has the microphone separate from the device.
