Listen To iTunes In Your Car Without Hassle

Ever since I’ve had my iPhone, I’ve been searching for a way to listen to my iTunes content over my car audio system. I’ve tried numerous FM transmitters which use FM frequencies to transmit audio from your iPhone to your car radio. None of the units I tried work very well. Either there was too much radio interference or it would simply break due to cheap construction. I also tried some bluetooth units with built-in speakers but most were too complicated and wouldn't pair up properly or wouldn’t work with iTunes audio content.

I then found TuneLink Auto, a Bluetooth audio transmitter from New Potato Technologies. This handy little Bluetooth dongle plugs right into the accessory/lighter port in your car and includes a USB port and cord to charge your iPhone. The unit itself transmits audio from your iPhone to your car’s audio system wirelessly via FM frequency or hard wired connection. For the best  audio quality, the wired connection is recommended. 

Since a wired connection is not an option for me, I have to rely on the FM transmitter. This is where most units fail but not the TuneLink Auto. It comes with a free iPhone app that searches for the clearest available FM frequencies and lists them right in the app. You simply selection one and your ready to listen. The app can also be set to automatically pair with your iPhone, start up and play whenever you enter and start up your car! This function works very well and is quite handy.

While the direct wired connection is best, the FM transmitter in the TuneLink Auto works quite well and the audio quality is very good. Having the app automatically choose clear frequencies helps greatly and insures the best possible audio quality. The TuneLInk Auto is simple, well designed and does what it’s designed to do seamlessly and effortlessly.
