Question about Belkin TuneBase
I use a cheap Mp3 player and transmitter combined and it works very well. Why a more expensive product should be so disappointing it is difficult to guess.
The obvious answer is the the unit is faulty if it doesn't perform as the instruction manual and advertising suggests and probably should be returned to the retailer for a refund.
It is possible the display is telling lies and the actual transmitter frequency shifts when no one is holding the gooseneck. It might be necessary to tune the radio slightly off-frequency for clear reception.
It could be second channel interference and so tuning to the other end of the radio scale might be useful. Mine is tuned to 108 Mhz because the band there is completely clear.
It could be the signal to noise ratio is elevated due to inefficient grounding of the power socket or it is possibly picking up electrical interference from some device in the car's electronics.
The fact that you have already used a transmitter successfully in your car and others are complaining of the same problem, it would indicate China has exported a bad batch with the same or similar faults - maybe the gooseneck should be grounded and isn't...
I suggest you visit the retailer and express your displeasure and show him a copy of your complaint and the other comments.
