FM Modulator / Transmitter Specifications
FM Modulators typically wire directly to the radio and provide an input source to the stereo. The input is activated when the stereo tunes into a specified frequency. These usually require some intermediate installation.
FM Transmitters broadcast a signal that the radio is able to pickup via the antenna. Typically, these are more popular due to the easy installation.

We bought this for use on our boat. We plug it into a 12v receptacle at the helm and connect our iphone to the audio input. At the same time we connect the iphone to this unit to keep the phone charging while in use. Then, we set our stereo to an open frequency (usually between 88.0 and 91.0) and set the same frequency on this transmitter. The whole setup takes less than a minute. After it's setup we stream music from the iphone via Pandora or iTunes and it works flawlessly throughout the day. Another great feature is that when a call comes in, we can talk in a normal speaking voice and the iphone mike picks up our voice easily and caller's voice is broadcast to the boat speakers so we don't need to hold the phone while conversing. We've been using this unit for nearly three years and it still looks and works like new! (Note- we store it in our boat bag when not in use and that bag comes home with us at the end of the day so this unit does not stay on the boat at all times.)

I live in Brooklyn and it is very hard to get a clean signal in the whole area of Greater New York. There are some possibilities to improve it, but it's still extra work, means functions the device doesn't provide.
