    Hi, I just got this Tunebase Fm Modulator today. But when I put the modulator in the cigaret lighter supply.. my screen doesnt light up. Am I doing something wrong..?? I pressed some buttons on the modulator, the steering remote and de normal remote.. but didnt observed any functioning.. Am I missing an installation step??

    • Not as far as I’m aware dude. I don’t think it has any internal batteries – it’s been a while – though maybe check there aren’t any that need to be turned around. If not, give the retailer a shout, they can probably help you better. Hope it works out.

    I have two questions to the transmitter.

    Shows it the ID3-tags from the mp3s?
    Send the transmitter the ID3-tags from the mp3s over RDS (Radio Data System) via FM?

    Thank you.

    I got this recently, and I couldn’t find any instructions on how to sync it with my phone via bluetooth… how’d you sync it?


    • Thomas


      I don’t have it. Sorry can’t help.

      But can you answer me my question about the id3-tags?

      See you the tags on the display?
      On the display of the radio over RDS?

      Thank you.

    The remote should be attached to the inner side of the steering wheel, because YES IT LOOKS STUPID!!! AND ITS DANGEROUS AS WELL ON THE OUTSIDE.
