Cool Gadget – MP3 FM Modulator

July 26, 2005 by Galvin Tan in Technology with 55 Comments


I’ve just recently bought a cool little gadget for Julea. Since Julea’s car comes with a standard car player, I’ve decided to get something that can adapt her MP3 players to her existing car stereo system.

So I got her this nifty little gadget, it’s a MP3 FM Modulator. Yes, a MP3 FM Modulator. Probably most of you would have heard or even seen it before but this gadget is so cool that it deserves a re-introduction.



This FM Modulator plays all your audio devices wirelessly through your car stereo system and turns any USB memory drive into MP3 player. It comes with 7 FM modulator presets that a local radio station is not broadcasting on.

What you see here are the few devices that I pluged in into the FM Modulator.

So how to use it?

For USB memory drive :
1) Plug FM Modulator into vehicle’s 12 Volt adaptor.
2) Plug your USB drive into FM Modulator’s USB port.
3) Select one of the 7 FM Modulator Presets that a local radio station is not broadcasting on.
4) Tune your car stereo to the same FM freqeuncy as the FM Modulator.
5) Press the PLAY button and the music transmit to the vehicle’s stereo system.

For use with MP3, CD, or DVD player :
1) Plug FM Modulator into vehicle’s 12 Volt adaptor.
2) Using the provided audio cable, plug your MP3, CD, DVD player or rather audio devices into the FM Modulator’s stereo jack.
3) Select one of the 7 FM Modulator Presets that a local radio station is not broadcasting on.
4) Tune your car stereo to the selected FM Presets and enjoy the music from your audio devices.

I tell you, this device may not be the best invented gadget but it’s really cool for those who does and doesn’t own a car CD player.

I got this gadget from Studio 78, AsiaCafe for a reasonable price of RM150. As for the quality of the sound/music, it’s almost as good as you’re playing a CD…well, almost. Not bad indeed :)

Studio 78 is on the first floor of AsiaCafe which is located right infront of Taylor’s/Inti College, SS15 Subang Jaya.

If you want to reverse your automobile from the automobile parking space, the idea of using from the car backup camera is a powerful way to make sure that you don't mistakenly hit anything. If you work with the inside mirror, they are most occasions not capable specifically if you drive a truck or possibly an Vehicle. The unit are frequently on greater finish models in addition to, it is possible to have these questions store at significant prices. These cameras work by mounting to the rear of the automobile either round the license plate or round the rear bumper.


Since I Have spend a great deal time I my vehicle I am prepared to purchase certain conveniences that simplify my existence making vehicle riding easy, Eincar has lots of electronic items that attract motorists searching to produce their driving experience pretty simple listed here are a couple of Eincar electronics in car staples every driver should have:

Issues: Amps are cumbersome in most cases needs to be setup beneath a couch or possibly within the baggage compartment. Unless of course obviously your receiver features a miss signal allowing anyone to connect to the pre-amplifier, your high-priced amp only will raise the deformed output signal in the integrated amp.

¨C Initially initially initially when i first considered buying a backup camera I though When in the world would I ever utilize this?, now I'm able to imagine not receiving it. Whether I'm walking right into a good automobile parking space or reversing unto the street, this camera has saved me from stepping into many accidents.
https://www.eincar.com/car-dvd-player/2-din-car-dvd.html
The initial column type could be the stuffs the shoppers frequently buy or the most used products. Dual USB port charger, electrical lighter, charger holder for Iphone6, Vehicle Package Music Player, Wireless FM Transmitter, FM Modulator, Streaming Music Player with USB/SD/Card Readers, MMC Slot and Remote Control are the most used products customers usually buy. A number of discount for people stuffs originates from 11% to 39%. It is a problem clearly for just about any budget buyer. The next column, there's Flash Purchase that's split up into seven groups, 1F to 7F.

Car GPS Navigation Method is something about men that mentioned they'll never stop to ask about directions. Well, this is their explanation do not have to. Women don't either avoid a car GPS navigation system. In the past, if you needed directions, you should think about a map, call somebody who understood where your destination was, otherwise you required to stop and ask for directions. Then, the cell phone showed up in this area and everyone made an appearance to acquire one. This allowed you to definitely certainly remain on the phone with someone before you decide to arrived at that you were going. Then, another technology showed up in this area: the car GPS navigation system.

The teenage folks are keen of hearing the tunes inside the vehicle. They do not drive an automobile, unless of course obviously start the DVD player. Now you can find a variety featuring in the DVD player which designed for the cars available on the market you could purchase within an affordable cost. Inside the re-creation of car DVD player, you will find r / c features. Now you can become radio, if you do not desire to hear the DVD songs.

There are numerous channels that can be used to access the different systems. It is almost always advisable that you ought to physically visit the stores to evaluate the different systems. Furthermore, you're going to get the chance to determine the various systems easily. However, if you are unable you might still utilize the online stores. Eincar.com is really a site that gives you numerous options that you ought to pick from.

The simplest way to spend your outlay: 40% to 50% for receiver/tape player, 25% to 30% for amp, 25% to 30% for loudspeaker systems (unlike house equipment, which explains why half the suggested cost might move for loudspeakers alone).

ecom : The sound quality is pretty good. It sounds better if your FM reception is good. Quality of player can be a factor too.

The sound quality of the player you see in my posting here is not as good compared to the new cd player I tried in a Vios.

If everything else is good. I would say the sound quality is just a notch below direct CD playing and many times better than cassette deck.

minishorts : Bummer :( But the price I told you is retail price. I got mine on a discount :) I can't be setting the price for them right ?

ahdave : I know bout that. I was looking for that but found this as a better alternative. I can plug in USB drive which the conventional CD-Cassette adaptor can't.

Alamak, so many holes to plug.

Last time (10-15yrs ago) they have this device where u can output from the headphone slot. Instead of a ear/head phone, it becomes a "fake Cassette".

All you need is to push in the "fake cassette" in your car audio.

Yes Sherrina, any USB pen/thumb/flash drive will do.

The channel FM87.7 is one of the FM PRESETS from the FM Emulator. They are 6 more PRESETS to choose from. If your car is just right beside mine, you'll probably get to tune in whatever I'm listening to :)

You will need a reasonably good tuner, else you'll get sound distortions just like tuning in to radio on a bad weather. Fix it if possible, else go for a second hand cassette car stereo and you can still enjoy tons of music! Good luck!
