I was in need of a high quality car FM Transmitter grant it there are tons available from various manufactures both in store and online. After searching the net I happened upon Monster FM Transmitter products and after what seemed like hours reading reviews on the Monster iCarPlay Wireless 800 FM Transmitter. Some were great some not so great but in this case every man for himself.

So tossing caution to the wind I purchased the Monster iCarPlay Wireless 800 Transmitter for my iPhone4S. I recently returned from a road trip and must say that I am truly pleased and satisfied with my product. Yes, I had to scan for available FM stations whenever I lost a clear reception but once the single was dialed into my car stereo everything was great the sound was crisp and clear. Overall I am truly satisfied with my purchase and would strongly recommend this product to a friend.

THIS PRODUCT WORKS WELL WITH MY IPOD, CHARGES IT WELL, AND THE PRESETS FOR STATIONS ARE JUST GREAT.
THE BIG HOWEVER IS THE FACT THAT THE FM TRANSMITTER UNIT DOES NOT DO VERY WELL IN TRANSMITTING TO MY RADIO. ALMOST ANYTHING INTERFERES WITH IT. ALSO YOU CANNOT JUST LAY IT ANYWHERE IN THE CONSOLE, ETC. IN MY SUV; IT ONLY WORKS IF I HANG IT OVER THE REARVIEW MIRROR. EVEN THEN THERE ARE SPOTS SUCH AS SOME DRIVE IN WINDOWS ETC. WHOSE REGISTER SIGNALS OR COMPUTER CASH DRAWERS INTERFERE WITH MY RADIO SIGNAL.
THIS WOULD BE A 5 STAR PRODUCT IF THE TRANSMITTER WERE TWICE AS STRONG.
THE MONSTER COMPANY SHOULD ALLOW A VOUCHER TO TRADE IN THIS MODEL FOR THE MODEL YOU MAKE AS AN IMPROVEMENT TO THIS ONE,ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE HIGH COST OF THIS MODEL!
AS A RETIRED TECHNICIAN, I CHECKED YOUR FIELD STRENGTH AND MY OLD 'IGO' TRANSMITTER'S FIELD STRENGTH IS OVER DOUBLE THIS ONE'S.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, MAKE THIS A 5 STAR PRODUCT SIMPLY BY INCREASING THE FIELD STRENGTH AT LEAST BY TWO TIMES. YOU'LL BE BACK AT 5 STARS IN A FLASH!!

          Very poor reception on every station, when I could get it to work, the static was so bad I couldn't hear my music. The support staff told me to keep looking for a clear station, but I tried over 30 stations and couldn't find one clear enough. I had to return this product, after I got the run around from customer service reps. Horrible product, not worth the price.

          Like most people I have a protective cover over my iphone (apple makes these for this purpose). The Monster product does NOT fit with the covers, to my knowledge there is no adapter to make it work. It looks like a waste of money.

              This product sucks!!! Do not buy!!! The autoscan almost never gives me a good Channel... In fact 9 times out of 10 it gives me a radio stations channel! Don't spend your money on this piece of junk! Might as well pay the 40 bucks for the cheaper one because it does the same thing and produces the same quality.

                The scanning mode did not work well for me so I manually searched and locked a channel. The antenna signal is week and the sound that comes through my stereo has significant static. I also wish I had been more savy and purchased one that would transmit phone calls. This doesn't, and for the price, you would think it would. Definite not buy again for me!

But when I set it on a strong station it will not connect.

                    I bought this product to replace my Griffin iTrip (which worked excellent for half the cost). I thought for the money this would be a quality product. It is not. It's difficult to set the stations while driving (very unsafe) because the scanner skips. Once you find a station that completely unused, and set the iCarPlay to that station, it doesn't take long to hear more static then music. On top of that, the piece that connects into my iPhone doesn't fit with my case on. This has never happened other products that I have used. I never write reviews, but this product was so disappointing that I felt inclined to warn potential buyers.
