        Monster basically sucks

              Comments about Monster iCarPlay Wireless 250 FM Transmitter With AutoScan for iPod And iPhone:

              Yep, they said it all, (except the guy from NJ who must've gotten paid to give Monster a rave review). If I do all the steps to the Magic Monster dance correctly, sometimes the transmitter will broadcast to the channel. Other than that, the unit is [*] and my directions are all in Japanese. What a ruse, just another symptom of our consume and waste industry; the megas selling us [*] and we just keep buying.

                Comments about Monster iCarPlay Wireless 250 FM Transmitter With AutoScan for iPod And iPhone:

                I have been through two different replacements and both lack consistent quality. The first I had transmitted well but every 2-3 minutes would stop transmitting and you would have to push a button to wake it back up (this is also expressed in other reviews). The cord sheathing began to slide and expose wires as well. The replacement, when I complained and had to pay to have it shipped back to MonsterCable, came and OUT OF BOX was cracking and popping especially in the Bass and failed to consistently transmit in stereo sound. The popping and crackling resolves after 7 minutes of transmitted use. I have emailed Customer Service concerning a 3rd attempt at a decent product without response for a week. Second email has been sent. DO NOT BUY.

                  Comments about Monster iCarPlay Wireless 250 FM Transmitter With AutoScan for iPod And iPhone:

                  The product is compatiable for both my iPhone and my iPod but definitely not worth the price that I bought it for. It is fairly easy to use after skimming thru the manual. The detachable USB is probably the only good quality to this product as it charges and can be used for other uses.

                  The sound quality was okay at most with a good frequency that has to be fiddled around with. Most of the time, there's just too much static. Sometimes I would have to unplug it in order for it to work again which is a huge hassle while driving (even when stopping).

                  Overall, I find it a very unreliable way to listen to music with this FM transmitter.

                            Ok, lets see I this is my second FM transmitter that I have tried and this one didn't work either. I took it out of the package and plugged it in and the LCD screen lit up but didn't show the freq. It just flashed some random digits and then quit working completely. Don't waste your money or time.

                                Comments about Monster iCarPlay Wireless 250 FM Transmitter With AutoScan for iPod And iPhone:

                                At best, this thing broadcasts audio slightly louder than the background radio noise it's trying to overcome. Hisses and whines often make listening to an audio podcast very difficult.

                                The station finder almost always picks a station with an actual broadcast on the channel, frequently missing frequencies I know to be dead all over town.

                                At worst, the product randomly reboots, sometimes frequently. The cig lighter power supply flashes on and off and makes using it so unreliable as to not be worth it. I returned the product to the store for a replacement, and the replacement, after less than 2 months, exhibits the same symptoms, even though I've changed the car AND the iphone.

                                It is even more frustrating than the previous Monster cable FM transmitter thing that broke after 15 months (a different model).

                                I'll go out of my way to avoid Monster products.

                                  Comments about Monster iCarPlay Wireless 250 FM Transmitter With AutoScan for iPod And iPhone:

                                  I travel on the road a lot and I use my iPod on the near constant basis. When my old Monster Wireless finally gave up the ghost (close to 4 yrs), I didn't bat an eye about buying another Monster Wireless. It was a no brainer. The new one was great. The auto scan feature is terrific. It finds the clearest station for my podcasts & tunes on stations I would never have though to check. The sound quality is great and near clear, depending on station strength. Monster - I wouldn't use anything else.
