Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My college graduate daughter drives a 1999 Lexus RX 300 with relatively low miles. She wanted me to buy her a newer car for graduation and one reason was that she did not have Bluetooth streaming capabilities. I personally detailed her car, had the bumper and the torn seat repaired, plugged in the Scosche BTFreq to the cigarette lighter (yes it still is a cigarette lighter) and BOOM. Newer car! She loves it. We all drive older Lexus vehicles before 2003. I'm ordering 3 more Scosche BTFreq's.

Pros: All

Cons: Nothing so far

Works like OEM car built-in units, with one minor shortfall

Ed from Orlando, FL on 12/30/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Not sure what I was thinking when I didn't immediately look to Crutchfield for advice regarding car audio. As usual, they had the absolutely BEST answer. I'd never even heard of Scosche before. What a TERRIFIC product. Got for our son for Christmas as his old beater (Chevy Colorado) truck doesn't; even have an AUX port. He absolutely loves it and says that is works flawlessly. Heard it myself and, for sure, it works way better than the other 3-4 of these B/T FM transmitters that we've tried. Only one bummer, wish that you could have a list of a few B/T devices saved so you could easily switch between them like most of the OEM systems in today's cars. Thanks Crutchfield for the solid advice.

Pros: Easy plug-n-play. No hissing, pinging or fading. Connects quickly, every time.

Cons: Wish that you could save 3-4 devices for easy switching back and forth.

I have an older car that doesn't have any type of input so I ordered this since it's wireless. This thing works great for streaming songs off my iPhone and also for making and receiving calls. It's super easy to set up and works great! The sound quality is really good as if it was the car stereo itself.

Pros: Works great, easy set up and cheap price.

Cons: Have none.

Great sound

Joel from Austin, TX on 9/30/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Easy set up.?Once I found a good broadcasting station, the sound is as good as anything playing from my CD player. Very tiny if anything at all in background noise from acceleration. I love the hands free phone feature. Also the suns port is brilliant as you would have lost the ability to charge your phone otherwise.Worth the extra few dollars for this quality product. I've only Gad it for a week so not sure about durability but it is a solid piece. Nothing flimsy about it.

Pros: Easy to set up, awesome sound (on a Nakamichi system with 8 speakers), USB port, hands-free phone feature, flexible screen neck, aesthetic looks.

Cons: None so far

Far Superior to inexpensive FM Transmitters

Crutchfield customer from Charlotte, NC on 7/11/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Despite the recommendations of my 18 year old son to "Just get one for $10 on Amazon" I decided to get this FM Transmitter from Crutchfield as a stop gap until I decide which radio to purchase. He laughed when I told him how much I paid, three times what he paid for his, until he heard the sound quality. No hiss, great bass, and far superior super mid-range and treble quality than the one I borrowed from him. And for us "old guys" the functionality, display and controls are great. Super service and quick shipping to complete the deal. I'll definitively be getting the new radio from Crutchfield when it's time.

Pros: Superior Sound Quality Little to no distortion or hiss

Cons: Keeping my sons from "borrowing" it

Easy Bluetooth adapter for older cars/trucks!

Rolf from Hanover, NH on 9/23/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very pleasantly surprised by this unit. I was expecting the typical cassette type quality but that was not the case. The directions were easy to follow and the process was painless. I then tried out the bluetooth audio playback. The sound was great with even the bass coming through, no static, no distortion etc. You do need to raise the volume on your player in order to get more volume out of the factory radio. You can even skip forward and skip back using the buttons on the face of the control head. I have not tried the remote as where this is located in my truck (4runner) the 12 volt power source is right next to the shifter.

Pros: Great quality for the price, Decent sound quality, even the bass comes through Easy to use, Adds bluetooth to cars that are older

Cons: The flex neck doesn't allow for great adjustment, Lost connection once, but worked once I plugged it back into the 12v.

Attempted to use this product to connect a smart phone and/or iPod to a factory GM stereo. Even though it fulfilled the expected function, the sound quality was very poor with a lot of feedback/humming. Does it work? yes. Does it work well, not so much. I will be looking for other solutions.

Couldn't get it to link with any FM channel, ended up plugging into the auxiliary port on my boat. Works fine when your stopped but when underway there is a constant terrible feedback sound.

Pros: Cheap alternative to buying a new Blue tooth receiver.

Cons: Couldn't sync with FM channel Constant feedback when boat is underway.

Great for Podcasts

Chris from Sayreville, NJ on 6/20/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very easy to set up. I travel from NJ to the Philly area, so the reception on my FM tuner changes depending on my location, and it means more static in some parts of my trip. Because of this unpredictable static, I won't really be using the device for music. However, it is great for listening to podcasts and making calls. It definitely beats listening to my iPhone speaker while on the road!

Pros: Easy set up. Works well with my car stereo

Cons: Radio station signal strength sometimes creates static, affecting listening quality of music

So far, so good!

Cheryl from Corte Madera, CA on 4/18/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I haven't been using this product for that long, but so far so good! The clarity of the sound is great when listening to music with little to no static, and it's very easy to find an ideal station through which to stream--MUCH better than basic FM transmitters I've used before this, and I love how quickly my phone links into the Bluetooth. Sound is also good on calls, but you will want to make sure your phone is relatively close to your head or that you speak loudly/clearly because I believe it's still the phone's mic you're using on your end--I've had people on the other end of the line tell me they can't hear me that well, unless I make sure to keep the phone at least at head level (I suggest making sure your phone is at least attached to a mount). Last thing -- while convenient that the product has a USB port for charging, I have noticed that I can hear a strange high-pitched almost whirring/whining sound when I accelerate/decelerate if I have my phone charging through the device (the sound is not present if I don't have anything plugged into the product's USB port). Don't know if it's just because of my car (I have a 2005 Acura MDX), but it's not a huge deal since I have another port through which I can charge my phone. Bottom line, this is a solid product that does just what it says it will, and it's affordable too.

Pros: - affordable product - good quality sound - fast Bluetooth paring - VERY user-friendly

Cons: - phone needs to be in proper position so that callers can hear you when you are speaking - strange whirring/whining sound when USB charger is plugged into device (again, this might just be a "my car" thing)

A Great Piece of Equipment

Geoffrey from West Newton, MA on 11/3/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have to say that I was leery of trying an FM related piece of equipment. I've tried those before in the past and ended up thinking I wasted my money. This equipment could not be more different. It's excellent in every respect. It sets up quickly and easily. When in use, the Bluetooth locks onto my phone within seconds. The sound I'm getting through my auto sound system (a Bose upgrade in a 2003 Porsche C4S) is astoundingly good. And here I was prepared to spend a few hundred dollars to SOMEHOW connect my phone to the sound system. My only question--which I have not yet figured out, is this: on a phone call, where is the microphone that is picking up my voice when the call is going through the Scosche BTFreq? Is it the microphone on the phone? Or does the Scoche have a microphone? People on calls don't seem to be hearing me very well. I"m still investigating.

Pros: Great connection. Great sound.

Cons: Microphone for calls going through the equipment not self-evident.

Simply plug in, set to a FM station matching car radio and pair with bluetooth device. Works perfect. After initial pairing with my iPhone it connects automatically when I get in the vehicle. I was surprised at the sound quality. Playing music via iPhone it sounds every bit as good as playing a CD in my vehicle. No hiss or static. Very pleased.

Pros: Ease of use. Quality of sound.

Cons: None.

Product Research

Features

Handsfree Car Kit with FM Transmitter: The Scosche BTFreq (BTFM) Handsfree Car Kit with FM Transmitter lets you play music and make calls through your car's FM stereo. It is powered by a 12V power plug (cigarette lighter adapter), and has a USB charging port to charge your device. It connects to your phone or music player via Bluetooth, and transmits the signal to your car stereo via FM. It also has a 3.5mm aux input for non-Bluetooth sources. The BTFreq comes with a small, convenient remote control.

Flex Neck: The BTFreq has a short (3") flexible neck that lets you position the unit at multiple viewing angles.

Display: The 1" (diagonal) backlit display indicates the FM transmitting frequency. You can choose any frequency between 88.1 and 107.9 MHz. To stream music or take phone calls, you should tune your FM radio to the same frequency.

Aux Input/Output: If you wish to play a non-Bluetooth music source device, you can plug it into the 3.5mm Auxiliary input. The same 3.5mm jack can be used as an Auxiliary output. If your car stereo has an Aux Input, you can output the audio from the BTFreq's Aux jack. A 24" Aux cable is provided.

Music and Phone Controls: When streaming audio from your Bluetooth device, you can use the simple controls on the front of the unit to play, pause, skip tracks (forward and backward) and raise/lower the volume. A large Answer button is for controlling your phone calls.

Note: The Handsfree Car Kit does not have a microphone, so you must use the mic on your mobile phone for phone calls.

Remote Control: The included 21-button remote control gives you more control than the front panel buttons. It has dedicated Answer and Hang Up buttons, Channel +, Channel -, EQ and music controls, plus a 10-button numeric keypad. The remote is powered by a CR2025 Lithium coin cell battery (included).

Quick Charge Port: The BTFreq is equipped with a Type A USB port on the bottom of the front panel for powering/charging your mobile device. The USB port provides 5V/2.1A/10W of power, which charges your device quicker than the charger provided with the device. (For example, the supplied charger with an iPhone is 5V/1A.)

Specifications:

  • FM Transmitter Frequency Range: 88.1 to 107.9 MHz
  • Input Power: 12-24 VDC
  • Output Power: 5 Volts, 2.1 Amps, 10 Watts

Q
Do this item scan the FM Band to find a clear channel for transmitting?

No you have to find your own station. It takes a little while of trial and error
[ russell  Jul 04, 2019 ]
A
Not sure if it has an auto find feature as i just manually look for a clear or almost clear station
[ Marsha  Jul 03, 2019 ]
A
No. You have to find the station manually. However, as I recall, there are some web sites that show open frequencies based on your location.
[ Anthony Brent  Jul 02, 2019 ]
A
No, you select the frequency for it.
[ HARRY  Jul 02, 2019 ]

No it doesn't. You have to manually find and station that is clear, then set your transmitter to that station.

Can you play the radio when the phone is coupled to the radio?

Yes you can. Just change the channel. You see the device is acting like a commercial radio station...transmitting on a single discrete channel. Merely select a different channel to listen to...and

Q
Why does the transmitter cause my music to start skipping as if I'm listening to a scratched CD ?
[ Jessica  Sep 06, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
That is something I've never had happen while using mine.
[ james  Sep 06, 2017 ]
A
It's NOT the music that is skipping but the WI-FI connection going in and out. The band being used is crowded, so you might try changing the channel being used to transmit from your device to the radio - until you have found one that is less "skippy."

Q
Is there plenty of volume? I have a different BT transmitter and I like it but there is a huge drop in available volume.
[ NickT  May 13, 2017 ]

Gets up there in volume I recommend turning phone to half, then control volume on stereo. A downfall is in other areas you will get other Fm frequencies this will effect sound you can change station on both stereo and transmitter may help or just wait to pass. Other than that more bass than i thought it would have.
[ TREVOR  Aug 10, 2017 ]
A
There is a drop in volume in my 03 Pilot when I use this BT device connected to my iPhone. As a result I typically have to have the car volume turned up louder than normal (along with the phone volume maxed) to get to my normal listening level. Still there is more volume level on the car stereo available since I don't have it maxed out, but rather listen at a comfortable level.
[ Jeremy  May 21, 2017 ]
A
I bought this same bt transmitter and it worked just fine with my factory stereo. There is a separate volume control on the device. Between the volume controls on the phone, the transmitter and the stereo I haven't had any issues. I don't understand why the previous answer said it does not work. Hope this is helpful with your decision to buy or not.

[ WILLIAM  Mar 17, 2017 ]
A
you need to choose a different station. There must be a strong signal for a local radio station to that uses that frequency.
[ Bradley  Mar 17, 2017 ]
A
Try a different station on the unit, then switch to the corresponding station on your radio. Some are better than others, depending on your location, etc.

Q
my plug in power stays on all the time, will this kill my battery if I leave the player plugged in all the time with the screen light on?
[ Sharon  Feb 17, 2017 ]
4 answers
A
I'm going to say yes it will, if you plan on not driving for a month. being that the display is led, and most likely draws very little power, I wouldn't worry about it if you drive at least daily, or occasionally. If you are going to be away for a while and not using your vehicle, then I would unplug it, or at least slide it out of the power plug until it no longer lights up.
[ David  Feb 20, 2017 ]

I bought this as a gift for my son-in-law. They liked it but a piece broke off in the lighter socket within a month. We are going to return it.
[ Anne  Feb 19, 2017 ]
A
Hi Sharon, I also leave the unit plug in and have not had any problems with the car battery.
[ Freddy  Feb 18, 2017 ]
A
Yes it will drain you battery. However at a very low rate. If you drive your car daily it won't be an issue. If you leave it for days on end not being used just unplug it.

I am not sure. We did not get to that point. In our area some of the upper and lower ends of the frequency of the music did not work well. We ended up not using this.

There is no microphone on the device.
