I will try one of the 12v to 5v adaptors to see if the charging issue can be resolved. The iPhone3 stays constantly charging, but the iPhone4 starts charging, then, chirp, no charging. I also did receive the 'not compatible device' warning.

GREAT implementation, willing to throw more money at it to see if it is the unit or the 12 - 5v charge issue.

The 1000 is attractive and works in my Mini pretty well. There were some odd things:

1. My iPhone was set to shuffle with a shake. I had no problem before with just a patch cable, but I plugged in this device and the random shuffling began. Turned off shake to shuffle -- solved.
2. The output is too hot, causing distortion. Turned on Sound Check and it mostly clears up the problem, but some podcasts are still a little distorted -- but I can live with it.
3. The connection to the phone is a little flakey. I often need to reseat the plug to make the connection work. I may be missing something in the procedure. It usually works the second time.
4. It's supposed to be iPhone approved, but my 3GS flashes an alert when I plug it in, telling me the device is incompatible. I haven't heard any radio noise, it could be the iPhone just doesn't see the right chip -- I don't know.

The audio problem is kind of a shame. The line out should be better than the headphone jack. I will say that it's nice not to have to adjust the volume on the iPhone and on the stereo. It's just a shame that the audio line out is too hot.

In general, it's OK. I'm not returning it. If you're an audiophile, you don't drive the car I do and you shouldn't buy this product. It is a convenient little product and, if sound quality isn't paramount, it's OK.

Horrible Sound

By Ryan

from Hawaii

About Me Audiophile, Frequent Traveler

Pros

  • Easy To Set Up
  • Fast Setup

Cons

  • Poor Connection

Best Uses

    Comments about Monster iCarCharger 1000 For iPod And iPhone:

    Absolutely unacceptable distortion regardless of the settings on iPhone and iPod Mini. I have checked sound from apps as well. Downloaded song straight to iPhone no change. Come on Monster, this has left me doubting quality control. I am not the only one affected, just poked around the internet. Apparently I need to review products before I buy Monster, or just not buy Monster. Very disappointed.

    Does NOT work with iphone4

      Comments about Monster iCarCharger 1000 For iPod And iPhone:

      Though the packaging clearly says this IS compatible with iPhone it IS NOT. After about 3 minutes you get an error message saying "This device is NOT compatible with charging your iPhone".

      I wish I had read the comments section here BEFORE buying this item.

      I am currently on hold with Monster to see how I can get a refund.

      Pros

      • Great idea

      • Crashes iPhone
      • High noise level in audio
      • Incompatible

      Best Uses

        Comments about Monster iCarCharger 1000 For iPod And iPhone:

        Like others... Doesn't work properly. It has to do with the built in controls I think. Seemed to function until I pushed "Next"... Then the phone started to crash and reset over and over... Great device if it just worked and had less noise in the audio.

              Was great while it worked but it didn't work for long. After two months the audio began to cut out and when it managed to work at all the quality was terrible. Terrible product.

                  Works well when new. After it's been in use for a few months, it starts working intermittently. iPhone displays message that this device is optimized for iPhone. It charges and music intermittently. These problems make product useful.

                  Dear Mr. Monster;

                  This is a grate product going to waist, as almost everybody that upgraded to iPhone4 I'm annoyed by the fact that it's not supported I hope that this product gets a much needed upgraded.

                  And one more thing it would be nice to have a retractable AUX plug for cars with there AUX plug input in the hand-rest or the glove-box "glove compartment"

                  Kind Regards;
                  Sal

                        Well, I had MonsterCable's FM transmitter and loved it. So when it came time to upgrade to a car charger with AUX capabilities, I looked to see what MC had to offer. Purchased at [...], with assurances that it would work with my iPhone 4, I happily purchased it and installed it in my Prius. I would occasionally see the "Device Not Supported" warning, but it seemed to me it had to do with the connection and if I reconnected it, the warning went away and charging worked. Then I noticed it would reboot my iPhone without warning. I should have returned this product. Now it's in my junk drawer... :(I am very disappointed. Both in Monster Cable and in the [...] employee who recommended the product.
