Amazon.com: Customer reviews: Nulaxy Bluetooth FM Transmitter for Car, 1.8" Color Screen Wireless Radio Adapter Handsfree Car Kit with QC3.0 & 5V/2.4A Charging, Support USB Drive, microSD, Aux, EQ, Car Battery Reading- KM29 Black
When I read the description of this device I was confused. Let me break it down in simple terms. This device is made specifically for cars which lack factory equipped blue tooth capabilities (generally older cars). This device allows these cars a "work around' solution whereby you plug this device into the car's cigarette lighter /power socket and amazingly your blue tooth phone can now play music as well as answer and make phone calls through your car's factory installed speakers. All this, without any wires connecting your phone to your car speakers ( in fine blue tooth fashion).
The sound quality of playing music in this manner was slightly disappointing in that the music sounded a bit muddled but the sound was still passable (kind of like hearing music on the "AM" dial, as opposed to the "FM" dial). However the sound quality of hearing phone conversations through the car's speakers was nothing short of amazing (rivalling that of factory blue tooth speakers). And while your cell phone is now using your car as a speaker please be aware that your phone is still being used as a microphone. Therefore your phone needs to be an area of the car where your voice can still be picked up adequately. I found that placing the phone on my lap or on the side console works fine. A better solution would be to use a dashboard mount.
Lastly, pairing the device to your phone is easy (takes less than one minute) but may require you to try multiple stations on your FM dial (must use FM) before finding a frequency that works. There is also a USB port that allows you to charge your phone while still using the phone. All in all, a great device for owners of older cars who want the convenience and safety of blue tooth.
I have a 2005 Ford with a CD player and a radio. No Apple Music for me in my throwback...until now. This thing literally went from the box to playing music in my car within 90 seconds. Ease of setup aside, I’m beyond impressed with the sound quality. I expected some feedback or static, but all I’m getting is a crystal clear feed of my music. For the price of this thing, you can’t go wrong.
This has been amazing for my stock radio on my 2000 Blazer. Sound quality has been perfect since day one! I picked a station that had nothing but pure static with no sound feedback or clicking and the sound has been amazing. For those complaining about sound level I recommend checking the sound on your phone to make sure it's turned all the way up then you can use your car dial to adjust from there. The only issue we have ever had is once in awhile it doesn't pair properly with Bluetooth but we just unplug it and plug it back in and it resolves itself. It's only happened a couple times. After all the research on products on the market I'm glad I decided on this one. Great quality at a great price. I highly recommend this product
Took about 5 minutes for me to find a good radio station that was unused since I live in a major metro area. For me that ended up being 87.7 which is the lowest station on the band.
Pairing my phone to it took only a couple seconds. No need for a PIN or other input, just tap and go. The controls aren't too difficult to figure out. Pushing and holding the "back" and "Forward" buttons puts the unit to sleep as the unit doesn't have an autosleep function. USB or MicroSD card playback both work as expected, which is great if you're the kind of person who likes having a large collection of music available and doesn't want to use their phone for it.
The base has a Quick Charge 3.0 port which my Motorola G5S+ picked up as "TurboPower" and was able to quick charge of it. The other USB port is a 2.4A regular port which easily charges my wife's iPhone or my phone without any issues.
I would suggest not putting the volume on the transmitter to max (30) but back it off a couple notches and then adjust the volume using your car stereo. Maxing the transmitter out seems to lead to clipping with high frequencies that goes away if you turn it down just a bit. I run mine at 26-28 and it has gotten rid of all the clipping.
This was a fairly affordable way to play my phone over my new car's speakers without needing to order an expensive add on kit for a simple AUX cable.
Connection to phone was very easy. Music sounds great... no complaints. Calls sound very hollow; can hear very well, but person on other end has difficulty in understanding unless you yell. Advanced features (equalizer, etc) only work if using USB or micro card. But the benefit this provides to an older vehicle with no AUX output is worth the money. If listening to music is main use, I would recommend. If using for mainly calls, I can't say other transmitter units have same issues so I can't speak to this. Overall, I'm happy with unit.
I love how easy it is and how it works. Functionality is perfect. Worth every penny and way cheaper than going and getting one from Best Buy or other stores. Worth the money. Make sure to listen on a dead station! And you won't be disappointed
This is a great option for those of us that are driving older cars that do not have bluetooth built in. I have tried the Bluetooth to Aux adapters before and had to buy an isolator otherwise the engine noise will couple in, wiith this device, since it uses the FM receiver of your car, it bypasses the aux and no noise.
When I first turned the device on, it was tuned to 89.5 MHz on the FM, phone paired easily and I was off and running. Then one day I was messing around with it (unplugged it) my car was tuned to 89.5 MHz and I noticed that I have a local channel on 89.5 MHz. When I plugged in the Nulaxy, it easily overcame the FM interference and could play on my car stereo. I had tried FM modulators in the past with a lot less success with the co-channel interference. I haven't tried the aux out of it, to see if I still have the engine noise/ground loop problem I had with the others, I prefer to use the FM.
The sound quality is like it is playing on my CD player. It is great. I only have one complaint and that is mainly due to my car. In my car, the Cigarette Lighter Adapter is on the passenger side of the car, so the microphone when I talk isn't as strong. I know if the Cigarrette Lighter was closer to the driver, it would work perfect. The auto pair works great also. Climb in the car and boom, it is connected.
Will definately buy another one for my other car. This is a great option for retrofitting cars with bluetooth capapbilties and not having to wear a headset like a dork.
My 2006 Jeep has the factory radio. No bluetooth, no Aux jack, etc. This device works amazingly well! I set it to 95.9 on the FM and easily connected it via Bluetooth to my Samsung Note 9 phone. Now, all my songs come through and sound so much better than radio. You do need to be sure to adjust the volume up on both the KM29 and your phone. You can use your phone to change tracks, or use the buttons on the KM29 to do it. Another reviewer stated that the led lights don't move - a static display. Not True. They change up and down to the music. I'm not sure that they conform to the bass/treble of the songs, but it is much more than a static display. OVERALL, I could not be happier with the KM29. I have not tried using it with a memory card, but I'm sure it would be fine. Oh, also, it has fast charging output on the front to plug in your phone!
I also own an earlier model, the KM18. So my review is from the standpoint of comparison of the KM18 and KM29.
The KM29 has a much updated display, which is a very nice feature. Additionally, the options for the eq settings, though we haven't messed with them much, are a nice add in. The Quick Charge port is a great add on to this unit. Additionally, call quality is clearer. On occasion, much as with the KM18, the phone will not make the connection to this unit; however, it should be noted that this could be a fault of the phone as much as the KM29. The one downside to this unit over that KM18 is that it does not have a dedicated on/off button as the previous model did. You can turn the unit off, but it requires pushing two buttons at once, which is certainly not that easy to do if you happen to be driving. Other than that, I could certainly recommend this unit.
