Review: AGPtek Wireless In-Car Bluetooth 4.2 FM Transmitter


AGPtek Wireless In-Car Bluetooth 4.2 FM Transmitter

Most cars, trucks, and SUVs come with the latest technology which allows one to pair a phone with the bluetooth technology to listen to audio. In addition to bluetooth technology in vehicles, most cars come equipped with an AUX/USB port that will also allow one to listen to audio in the vehicle.
But what if you don't have any of that technology in your vehicle? That's where the AGPtek Wireless Bluetooth Transmitter comes into play. It allows you to insert the bluetooth transmitter into the cigarette lighter of your car. Once inserted, the bluetooth transmitter can be paired with a bluetooth enabled device and one can listen to audio in your vehicle.

 What I Liked?

The design of the transmitter is what I liked most about it. Some transmitters have pieces that can easily come apart. With this transmitter it is one piece and durable. I'll see what happens over time, but I do expect to be using this for a while (unless I trade my car in in a few months). 

The ability to play music via USB and micro SD is huge. I love the cordless experience but from time to time I want to save the battery on my smartphone. Therefore, having the ability to use the USB connection is nice. In addition, having the micro SD option isn't bad either. With the price of a 16GB being inexpensive these days, you could easily load up all your favorite MP3 tunes to it and play music that way without even having to use your phone.

The output of the sound from the transmitter is very nice! You'd think I had a CD player in the car. I like to set my frequency channel at 87.7 since there isn't a station on the channel. It makes for a very quality sound experience. My previous transmitters would bleed into other stations and the sound quality was less enjoyable.

What I Did Not Like?

Now to what I didn't like. In my video review, I had a hard time changing the tracks. After tinkering with the transmitter on daily commutes I was able to finally change from track to track. Maybe I wasn't pressing the button correctly since I was using one hand and trying to video at the same time. At the time of the video review, I was pondering on why I couldn't change the tracks. That's since changed (since this morning) because I was successful in switching between the previous and next track.

When I tested the built in microphone, the recipient on the other end of the phone (my wife) would tell me it seemed like I was far away and in some cases she would continue to say, "hello, hello, hello." Now, my cigarette lighter is located below the A/C controls so maybe the location of the transmitter may be a factor. I even tried elevating my voice, but the results stayed the same.

Overall Impressions

Would I recommend this product to you? Of course I would. If you are driving an older model car that doesn't have a CD player or the CD player is not functional, I'll recommend this to you! For me, I do not need to be able to hold a conversation through my car speakers (although that would be nice). I solely bought this item to replace my older transmitter so I could enjoy music on my commute to work and back home. Most of the quirks I had may have simply been because I didn't read the instructions (like most men do), but it doesn't take rocket science to figure out how to use this product. That's how easy it is to set it up!
