Product Features

The FM transmitter is used to transmit music or voice from a mobile device (smartphone, tablet, etc.) to an FM playback device (such as a car radio) in high quality in a car, caravan or boat. At the same time, up to two terminal devices can be charged simultaneously using the USB connections. The FM transmitter is compatible with all terminal devices that have a Bluetooth ® function. The FM transmitter can also transmit music or voice directly from a USB stick (maximum of 32 GB) or a microSD card (maximum of 32 GB).

Getting Started and Operation

  • Alternatively, audio files can be transferred directly from a USB stick or microSD card.


  • For some vehicle types, the ignition has to be switched on to supply power to the 12 V car socket. For more information, please refer to your vehicle’s operating instructions.
  • Disconnect all cable and on-board connections after use.

Bluetooth® pairing Note
