The T10 is a well-rounded device that supports a wide range of FM frequency to get a hands-free calling feature to be readily available to older cars. Pairing with it was seamless whether you and Android or Apple user. Being able to play a variety of music format and with a max 32GB TF Card capacity you can play all your favorite music on a long distance drive. The FM transmitter works great with minimal distortion also finding an unused FM frequency is a breeze using the button of the unit. The center control knob serves as a volume up/down by turning the knob and it also use as a play button. The biggest feature is hands-free calling. Most of newer vehicle with have the technology built in but older cars didn’t have the privilege. This device serve it purpose giving a new life on how we can received phones calls wirelessly via Bluetooth. The display is a charm, displaying the song being played or the person calling a nice touch removing the guessing game of what song or who’s calling. Another great thing it gives you a reading of the voltage of your battery the first time you turn on your vehicle (Kudos for that!!). The unit remembers the last device connected and it pairs on as soon power is applied to it.
Now let’s talk about sound quality. I know what you’re thinking playing music via FM transmitter connected to a Bluetooth device will yield to some sound distortion. The answer is NOPE as long as a free frequency is used and no radio station near the frequency the audio is clear. Don’t get me wrong and let’s not try to compare a device that is built in compare to this unit but still it surely serve it purpose. Did I mentioned noise cancelling feature (mostly for call purposes) it works fantastic the person on the other line is loud and clear. If you’re not in the mood of connecting you device via Bluetooth fear not you have a AUX jack to play your tunes also a 3.5mm cable is supplied with it.
Other device will fully occupy the cigarette lighter and no were for you to plug your car charger. Good thing about this device it has built in USB plug for charging your devices best of all it’s 5V, 2.1A for fast charging. A very well thought integration of a built in usb charger. With the adjustable neck you’ll surely find the best view for the LCD Screen, compare to the other device have a somewhat fix view and hard to see this one solves that issue.
To sum it all up this device is one of the most feature rich unit with a descent price tag. I’ve use fm transmitter before but none comes close to the versatility and features of the T10 Car Bluetooth Transmitter. Only thing I wished it has was a micro usb/lightning cable to be included on the package but that is just a nitpick of mine. Over all this unit will surely make you drive great by playing your tunes and safer drive because of the hands-free calling feature. Highly recommended product.
