I really like this product. I have used a similar product that needed to be plugged into to the phone and the power source. Having the cord pulled on constantly was a nuisance and would pull apart making not work.
The Sufum Car Kit works very well. I did not notice any breaks in the connection and could have clear conversations. It was easy to connect and use. I love that it is rechargeable and cnad be used outside the car on any radio.
Disclosure: I purchased this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.
This product is awesome!! The modulator itself is able to pair to your bluetooth device and basically convert that signal to an FM Frequency that you can pick up on any radio. The modulator itself is attached to the cigarette lighter plugin base magnetically. This is nice because you can easy detach it and since the magnet is in the base of the modulator itself, you can stick the device on any metal surface. It does contain an internal battery that maintains its power when detached from its base or the power is cut off. This is nice because you don't loose connectivity with the device just because you turned the key off and back on, etc. Nothing like having to go back into Bluetooth settings on your phone to reconnect to a Bluetooth device just because it turned off for a minute. The device does have a timeout, so if no devices are currently connected to it, it will eventually turn itself off. It supports both modes, A2DP and Hands-free, so you can listen to music on it and...
I really don't like this product! We tried using it with out instructions and it was quite hard to figure out. I think if you have to have instructions to figure out, it's really too complicated! Tried using the USB to charge the phone and it would not charge my Note 4 even after being plugged in for over 2 hours on our drive. Once we figured it out, it worked really well in our 05' Chevy Tahoe, but it would not work very well in my 04' Corolla. Why we are not sure, but it worked better in the Tahoe. The sound quality was good though once we were able to find a station that would work. The numbers on the screen are out so some of the numbers are hard to make out just after 2 days of use. I would like this more if it was easier to use, if it was better quality. Maybe we just got a dud, but I will not be using this on a regular basis!
