Hi there @Batman8ter,

 

Thank you for taking the time to post here in the Community. We'd like to shed some light to this 🙂

 

Car Thing doesn't actually send the music, your phone which connects to the Car Thing does. 

 

Car Thing just provides an interface for drive-friendly interaction. So if your phone currently works with your FM transmitter, Car Thing will allow you to control the music sent from your phone via Spotify to your FM transmitter. You should just make sure to choose connect to your car via Bluetooth during the Car Thing setup.

 

We hope that this cleared some things up for you.

 

Let us know if you have any further questions. Have a continued great weekend 🙂

What if I only have an fm transmitter for music. Like my car doesn’t have Bluetooth. 

Hey @Rkoivupalo

 

Thanks for getting in touch about this. 

 

No worries, you'd only need to have Bluetooth connection to connect your phone with the Car thing.

 

For more info, we suggest that you check this and this article.

My Question or Issue

I’m worried that the car thing will not work with my car. I connect to my car/stereo by using an FM transmitter that is plugged into a car charger 

why won’t the car thing work when plugged into my fm transmitter

Hey @beccalee_,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

In this case, take into account that a 12V power outlet in your car would be needed to connect it with the adapter provided. So, make sure your FM transmitter meets that requirement. You can read more about it in this article

 

We hope you found this helpful. We're always here to help.
