Can someone more fully explain what you can do with this? I assume it's powered through your cars lighter socket, links to your smart phone and transmits to your car's stereo FM. In the past I haven't been to impressed with the transmission quality of such devices but that was years ago. Has technology improved that significantly?

I'd imagine you could take calls and transmit music from your smart phone once linked? What's the purpose of the flash drive? Transmitting stored MP3s? I could hardwire my phone to my auto stereo's AUX socket but I'd rather avoid the wire if the quality will be equivalent?

I bought something similar for when I have a rental car to use my phone to play mp3, hear the directions from navigation and take calls. The quality is quite good, but a cable connection is better. You also have to set up bluetooth, switch the thing on etc.

I imagine the USB is for output, so the power isn't being hogged, eg. you can connect your phone (edit: for usb charging, I mean). It says micro SD expansion, so that's where you'd add stored mp3s' from.
