    Anyone Ever Install a iSimple ISFM21 Bluetooth?

    I ordered a "iSimple ISFM21 TranzIt Universal Bluetooth Enabled FM Transmitter Car Kit for Android Devices, Blue" today to install in my 2005 CTS, V6 3.6L . Has Nav, XM etc.

    I looked throughout these forums and saw the many options, this seemed to be an easy install and I would prefer bluetooth to AUX install I have seen some people doing.

    My question is has anyone installed one of these before? How do you like it? Any tips? I am going to be attempting to install this myself! I'll post some pics and let you guys know how it goes.

    2 Antenna adapters & a couple of fuses later I got this installed. Pretty simple. I'll post the details up later.

    I'm liking the idea. How is the sound quality? Does it go through your FM radio? I would like some details on this cause I might do it, I also did not want to go through all the trouble of the aux

    Yes please let us know how the sound quality is. Only the best FM modulators sound half way decent.

    Ive used several different fm modulators that worked but didnt sound very good. I currently use a motorolla roadster2 bluetooth modulator that actually sounds as good as the best fm station i can tune in. Very easy to setup .I am pleased with it. Dont get me wrong its not cd quality but its pretty darn good for a modulator. Jesse

    It actually works really well. I wouldn't say its CD quality but its way better than any non hardwired fm broadcaster. Let me know if you need anything install was fairly simple, just make sure you have the antenna adapters and the right tools to remove the radio. Also I took power from the front 12v power

    What sort of antenna adapter did you use? I have a the Roadster 2 right now but I have been thinking about going with one of these bluetooth adapters instead.

    My roadster 2 doesn't require a antennae adapter its completly wireless . I use it for my phone and my tablet and Bluetooth three sound through the cars stereo so the kids can watch Netflix on trips. it has several other features that i haven't used. It really does sound better than any other wireless modulater type unit I've ran across. I bought mine through Verizon a they has a sale on it. I figured with there14 day return policy if i didn't like it i could return it. I knew after the first time i heard how good it sounded and the features that it had it was a keeper. And nothing to hook up. Everybody has different opinions but for Mr this one was the right one. Jesse

    The roadster 2 that i have I'd bluetooth and you can pair 4 devices at once
