I'm after a good quality FM transmitter for use with my HD3.
Has anyone any recommendations?
mmm I just bought a sony one off ebay, will do a mini review when i get it
I got one of these for $25 on a recent trip to Colorado USA.
With my NW-HD3 I got very good performance in the car whilst in the mountains. However when I took a trip down to Denver the performance dropped of as more radio stations became available.
It still worked but I got stacks of interference regardless of which channel I used or how I positioned the aerial.
When I got back to London I tried it out in my car and got the same poor performance as in Denver.
I guess that the performance is inversely proportional to the number of local radio stations that you can receive. Forget it if your in a larger city with huge FM choices.
I've put the transmitter away for now and switched back to my multidisc CD player.
I understand that Sony will be releasing a car docking station that will plug into you car stereo (where/if possible).
One other thing. I found the NW-HD3 very distracting whilst driving. It was however very good fun for my passengers
I hope this helps.
I live in a large city here in the United States....and all FM Transmitters suck! We need a direct docking station now!!!!
I've used the Audiax-2 and found it very good. Occasionally I get interferance, but only in Big cities, in and around Yorkshire it works just fine
