Works ok - but doesn't last long

Anthony K, Apple Store
17 June 2014
  • Summary: Been thru 2 of these in the last 2 years. sounds ok, but same issue - it starts falling apart after a few months. Kind of expensive to replace every 6-12 months at $70 a piece. I'm going to look for a better one next time.

So so

  • Summary: It worked okay, I found I had to change the station depending on what part of town I was in to avoid static. Biggest disappointment was that it only lasted a year and 3 months before breaking.

  • Summary: I've had 2 of these. The first worked brilliantly then after about a year or so it just stopped working, I thought for $90 it'd have more life in it. None the less i was happy enough to fork out the cash for another one.

Worked for a while, then stopped.

Krystal H, Apple Store

  • Summary: Bought this is June and it worked fantastically for about 4 months. Then it started getting super static-y all the time unless you were driving on VERY open highways. It got to the point where it started cutting out a lot, even if it was on a 'good' station.

Almost Adequate

Dwight D, Apple Store

  • Summary: I tried using this product in my Mercury Sable and was very disappointed. The TuneCast transmitted a very weak signal and I was running the volume at around 80% just to hear it. My antennae is at the rear of the car, so that might account for the poor reception, but overall, it's a piece of junk.
