Test Driving The Zune In-Car Kit

Description

If you’re a Zune owner, then you’ll want to check out the review over on Ian Moulster’s blog about his personal experiences with the Zune In-Car Kit. Ian said his past experiences with these types of FM Transmitters didn’t have him feeling too hopeful about how the Zune Kit would work out for him. However, he ended up being surprised by the performance and the number of features it offered. One of the best features of the kit was how it used RDS to display the track and artist information on the radio – when your kit is connected, the display reads “Zune," and when a song starts playing it will display artist and track info. That’s pretty cool – my in-car kit doesn’t even do that. Ian was also happy to report that the reception ended up being a lot better than he expected thanks to the wire from the cigarette lighter which also acts as an antenna. Although he didn’t provide a link to the device, based on the photos provided, it looks like he was talking about this kit, which, at $69.99, is about $30 cheaper than the last kit I purchased myself.

    even better (IMO) than using an FM transmitter is the ZuneCORE from Kicker/SoundGate.
    I recently added one to my Mustang (hey, sometimes I want to listen to something other than the purr of the Pony's engine!) - it's great value and really easy to install

    The folks from SoundGate also have adapters to fit a number of factory and aftermarket stereo systems and even support steering wheel controls...
