FM Transmitter – A Fabulous Addition

1 March 2010Entry by

If you dont have discovered yet, your phone holds an extraordinary feature – the FM transmitter.  We have before rumored about this, if the Nokia N900 would transmit over FM, we also looked at the Maemo FM Radio Player, and now let’s look at the FM Transmitter working on the Nokia N900.

I remember always when I wanted to have a radio for my car with an USB or audio input, to play songs from my mp3 player or even from my mobile harddisk. Not long ago this has been such a hit. Or the homestereos with docks for several players, the best known surely is the iPod dock for example.

Now there is no need for such gimmicks anymore. This little feature on your N900 lets you hear your favorite music anywhere on any radio or stereoreceiver you want. Imagine an old tube radio from the earlier times, every car stereo in which car ever or just the little kitchenradio playing your music saved on your N900.

To activate the FM transmitter goto the Media Player and choose your songs, playlists or the internetradio. Tap on the menu in the upper middle of your screen and choose FM transmitter. A small setting window will appear from the bottom where you can activate the transmitting. Select a channel and set the same numbers to your receiver. Save settings and you will start to hear your music from the choosen device.

To get the best quality in transmitting, try to take a channel which is not reserved by another station.

Fact is, the FM transmitter makes wires and docking stations useless. An easy way to enjoy your music on every receiver.
