I really like the Belkin TuneCast Auto for iPhone 3G. The problems I have with it are really just inherent of the technology and its compatibility in my city; there just aren't any available stations that don't have anything being broadcast on them. This issue, however, is not Belkin's so I feel it is unfair to knock them any points for this. Instead, the disappointments I have with the device are listed below, that just prevent it form being a 5-star device.

Offers automatic charging and channel scanning

The Clearscan facility is nice and easy to use, but in more heavily FM congested areas it's not exactly quick, and the fact that you can't easily mount the Auto controller makes it impossible -- or at least stupidly dangerous -- to attempt to re-tune while you're driving, which is of course when you're most likely to encounter interference. We'd rather hit FM interference than other people, but your views may vary. In any case, en-route fiddling with the Tunecast Auto is best left to passengers....

At $99.95, the Tunecast Auto sits in a premium pricing position relative to other in-car FM tuners. It worked well for us in testing, and the ability to forget about batteries and keep your iPod charged for when you step out of the car makes it a good buy.
