So good I bought another one
I got one for the work ute and it was so good I bought another for the Jeep. Excellent.
Very Happy with this.
Followed the instructions and connected easily with Bluetooth and FM. Very good sound quality for music and calls. I safely answered a call using the button on the device, and was able to make a call with my phone close by, and speaking clearly, using the Google assistant, "hey Google". So useful in my pre Bluetooth era car.
My son is very happy with this too.
So i bought two......
Really useful
Does exactly what it says, and eddy to set up. Now I don't have six cases of CD's on the back seat !!
Very very good!
Works much better than you would expect for this price. The ONLY criticism is that when using Bluetooth on my Android phone for navigation, the first half of the very first word in a set of instructions is slightly clipped. This is hardly worth mentioning because I feel so happy with my purchase but I wanted to be totally honest. Knowing what I now know, |I would not hesitate to buy it again or recommend it to a friend.
Save me buying a new car stereo
The product works. Save me buying a new car stereo.
Plays really well.sounds are clear. Ilove this device
I totally recommend it to everyone.
Brilliant Device
East to set up. Great sound and microphone for phone works very well. Far better than Bluetooth Phone accessory that clips to sun visor and allows you to play all your music through your car audio

Even works when listening to radio and phone rings. Just make sure have preset station tuned to frequency of carMate-6. When phone rings select preset tuned to frequency of carMate-6 and answer call. It goes straight through to the carMate.
Great price
Can even charge phone too
Great - works really well.
Sadly, the positioning of the 12v socket in my car means that it doesn't fit as conveniently as it might but that's not a major issue. Just be warned if you have a Volvo V50 that you'll have to manoeuvre the unit around to find a position that doesn't obstruct the gear lever but still enables you to operate the buttons the correct way up! I hadn't noticed that you can only receive calls, not make them but otherwise I am really happy with this - especially at the price!
Not compatible to charge iPhone sing USB port
Will only work with a USB compatible device. But doesn’t say what is compatible. Bluetooth works seamlessly and playback is good through car speakers. However you will need another charging point to charge your phone.
Great product
Can't believe how clear it is was tricky setting it up shame that didn't come predone in the box you basically have to set up the USB stick roll on parts so it fits in the cigarette lighter compartment took ages but once it was set up I was impressed connected to my phone and fm channel with no bother and made it easier for me to answer calls and listen to Spotify. The remote does not work for some reason but I doubt I'll be using that anyway. If you are unsure I would recommend fast delivery too. Thanks Mobile fun :)
Smart and easy to use
Ease of use. Far superior to the previous transmitter I owned. Useful device for older vehicles that do not possess any auxillary sockets or Bluetooth connectivity to the entertainment system.
Would recommend.
Superb item
Really good product n very useful
nice gadget
Initially had problems linking to car radio, problem was that my radio was checking for Traffic Anouncements (TA) and kept searching for valid stations. Once I disabled (TA) then carmate worked correctly.
Works great with a good clear signal. Only thing I would say is the USB socket should be 2.4 output as I find running navigation and music streaming software still drains the battery a little.
FM Wireless Transmitter
Bought this to connect my iPhone to the Audi Bose system via the radio. Does the job well though the reason it only got 4 out of 5 is that there is a background hiss, noticeable at lower volumes. Also in my case, it interferes with the manual gears of the car. as it sticks out quite far.
great item does exactly what it says
vwery pleased with the product
Excellent Product
Easy to install and works a treat
Works well
The product works great after finally arriving 5 months after purchasing
Great product to use
Great product but now have a problem with the screen numbers. The numbers are fading so bad that I can hardly read them. I am now very disappointed as if the numbers fade any more I will not be able to read them therefore unable to use the prduct
Great Product
Great attachment, bluetooth works well.
Great product
Works well, great solution for a car with no bluetooth or aux port in place already.
Great quality for the pirce
I bought this to allow me to play music and answer calls in my car, as the car does not have inbuilt bluetooth. It does exactly that, at a very low cost. The kit was easy to set up and works via a radio channel, which I have now stored in the radio memory. The phone connects automatically when I get in the car. Due to the placement of my cigarette lighter port in the car, the kit can sometimes get in the way of my seatbelt or handbrake, so I have to move it to the side. Would definitely recommend this product.
brilliant kit
This is a brilliant piece of kit. If you don't have a blue tooth audio in your car like me. It does what it says on the tin. It was out of stock when I ordered it but mobile fun kept me informed every step of the way. I have had a lot of items from mobile fun and every one has been a good product
usb not working apart from that is ok

Easy to use, looks nice in vehicle, has nice features and a crystal clear sound on hands free calls and whilst playing MP3 music. Recommend if you don't have build in Bluetooth in vehicle.

Had it about three weeks and no issues, very easy to use.
Excellent Device
This device works really well, automatic connection to my phone when I start the car, has good call quality and best of all can stream music and audio through the same Bluetooth connection as the phone.
Highly recommend.

Hi Jamieson

Sorry to hear you are having problems with this item. Can you please contact our Customer Services team so we can assist.
Excellent Product
Easy to set-up and my Car radio picks up the device on RDS, audio quality is crystal clear, definitely purchase if you're looking to retro fit a device to stream music from your phone to your car stero.
Magic little DDvice
A brilliant bit of kit, plays all my music put on SD card or memory stick, charges my phone as well as being a hands free device as well, can't ask for any more, my other transmitter broke it didn't match up to this one.
Great piece of kit
I've tried other far more expensive equivalents, but this one beats them. Sound quality is excellent, both hands-free and music. Easy to set-up and unobtrusive. For the money, fantastic value.
Happy with the product!
The itenm is described exactly how it is! It's working fine with my car! Thank you Mobile Fun!
Great quality!
I purchased a year ago a FM transmitter through mobilefun. Before the warranty was expired, the previous FM busted due to wear and tear.
Mobilefun was happy to replace it with a new one therefore I sent the old one back through Collect+ which was free.
Unlucky the same transmitter wasn't available in stock however paying the balance I purchased the promate carmate. I couldn't be happier! Plugged in straight forward, solid materials, good quality of music and call reproduction and the microphone built inside is great too! I can also play music though the SD Card/USB.
The remote control could be improved, however I would definitely recommend!
In car entertainment centre
Play music from your phone, a memory stick or SD Card, take and make calls hands free, all via your car speakers, all wireless. Even charge your phone, tablet or other usb chargeable device (not wirelessly of course)
Great item according to my son
Item great, tracked delivery but delivery firm said tried to deliver day before! I was in all day, not true perhaps have to meet targets hence bend truth. But delivered next day so 1 day after supposed delivery. May buy another as my son said it works well even easy to set up. Good item.
Good but a few minor irritations
As usual, as with all my orders with them in the past, MobileFun shipped promptly; the courier was a bit of an oaf this time though.

Easy to Bluetooth to the Carmate-6. Up and running immediately.

In my opinion, the remote control is a bit crap because it has to be virtually on top of the Carmate-6 to operate it. Neither use nor ornament when you're driving. The manufacturer should not bother producing it.

Reconnecting isn't always automatic. Returning to the vehicle, jumping in and driving only to receive a 'phone call and realise the Bluetooth isn't connected.
On my part, the vehicle in which the device is fitted does not power off the cigarette lighter socket so the Carmate-6 is always powered. This could be contributing to the non-reconnection.
Like I say on the title, only minor irritations. However, I've previously had the Pama FM transmitter (looks a bit like the Starship Enterprise) and they aren't as irritating. I wanted to order more of those but they no longer seem to be available.

Would I order another Carmate-6: Yes

Please wait...
