The Incredisonic IFM-500 Bluetooth Transmitter Car Kit is a small device that allows you to use your phone hands-free in your car through your car radio, whether it be for music or calling. This device comes with many features such as a gooseneck that allows you to adjust it where ever you want it, allowing easy access to the controls. The device is $39.95 at Amazon, a great price for a great product.
This device is not the most fancy looking device on the market but it is made very well. The device comes in all black, with the exception of color light on the buttons, making the buttons easier to work with at night. The device features a gooseneck so you can adjust the device to where you want it. This range of motion of the device is very useful. The device is small, taking little room in your vehicle. The product is well made, it will not break easily. The small screen on it that tells you the radio station you should be on does it’s job well and it is well-seen in poor lighting situations such as when you are driving at night. All in all, the device looks fine and it is made fine but there is much more to talk about when it comes to the function, so let’s delve into that, shall we?
This device’s main purpose is to transmit audio from your phone to your car. It does just that and it does it well. However, there are a plethora of great features that come with this device. First off, my favorite, Noise Canceling Technology. This allows you to choose any station you want to use to run the device off of, and the device will cut out sound from the radio station, even if the station has something on it already. It reduces static heard in competitor’s products by almost 100%. I never hardly hear static coming from the device. In addition, the device is easy to setup. You plug it into your cigarette lighter, tighten it into the cigarette lighter (which is also another neat feature since it keeps the device in place), turn the device on and search for it on your device’s bluetooth settings. There is easy setup for all devices. Another feature I like is the flexible neck, allowing you to adjust it’s position to your liking. The device also has a phone mount so you can mount your phone on the device and the passenger can watch a movie (sorry drivers, your eyes stay on the road). The device’s buttons include turning on and off bluetooth for the device itself, play/pause, forward/reverse and radio station changing. All the buttons are lit up except volume up/down knob on the side. One cool thing about one of the buttons is that if you hold the green “answer the call” button, Siri will answer you, allowing handsfree calling in addition to handsfree answering. One software feature I like is the transfer from music audio to phone call audio. The device will lower the music volume and it the ringtone on your phone will be prominent. This also occurs when you are in navigation, the music volume will lower so you can hear Siri giving you directions. This device is spot on. It’s the best audio device for cars that don’t have a fancy Suburban audio system that costs a lot of money. This device is filled with great features that I know customers will appreciate. There is nothing wrong with this device in terms of functionality.
-Transmits audio to the radio well
-Sound Canceling Technology
-Plethora of other small features
-None at this time
Ways to improve
At this time, there are no cons to fix.
This is truly a great music solution for the car. I have used these kinds of device for years and this is by far the best one I have ever used. The device’s price is perfect for what you get and I may soon be buying one, in addition to the free one I have now. This device definitely earns five stars from me. Great job Incredisonic.
