We may be a week into a new decade, but my car is firmly stuck in the past. While it’s been my reliable and trusted vehicle for the past 10+ years, there are some definite downsides to driving a car that was built in 2005.

We’ve come a long way in technological capabilities, with features like Bluetooth connectivity, WiFi, and GPS all standard in newer cars. Sadly I have none of that, and am relegated to using just the radio and whatever CDs I’ve managed to scrape together for entertainment on the road.

If, like me, your own car leaves much to be desired when it comes to tech, one affordable device is looking to change all that. The VicTsing FM Transmitter is available on Amazon, and transforms any car into a modern vehicle.

Available for just $19 right now (down from its regular $30), this handy device connects through a car’s DC adapter and provides hands-free connectivity while you’re on the go. Using Bluetooth, it pairs with your phone and transmits its signal through a designated open radio channel — meaning you can stay connected regardless of car make or model.

You can use voice commands to make phone calls, connect to Siri or your Google assistant, and get directions with the touch of a button. You can also listen to music from any phone through the Bluetooth connection or Plug & Play technology thanks to the two USB ports included in the adapter.

“This worked soooo well! I have a 2004 Tahoe and it is a game changer,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “Clear phone calls — both hearing them and them hearing me. Love that you can plug your phone into it as well to charge.”

“I have an older car, and as such aux is not an affordable option. This little FM transmitter proves that I do not need to spend a ton of money to listen to my music on the road!” added another.

Backed by a 4.3-star rating on nearly 800 reviews, the VicTsing FM Transmitter is one must-have if you’re looking to to upgrade your driving experience in 2020.
