Connecting a Monster Bluetooth FM transmitter is a convenient way to stream audio from your smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled devices to your car’s stereo system. Here’s a general guide on how to do it:
Materials You’ll Need:
- Monster Bluetooth FM transmitter
- Car with a working stereo system
- Smartphone or Bluetooth-enabled audio source
- 12V car charger (if needed to power the FM transmitter)
- Power On the Monster FM Transmitter:
- Ensure that the Monster Bluetooth FM transmitter is powered on. Some models have a power button or switch; others may turn on automatically when plugged into the car’s power socket (cigarette lighter).
- Tune Your Car Radio:
- Turn on your car and use the car’s stereo system to tune the radio to an unused FM frequency. It’s essential to select a frequency that doesn’t have a strong local radio station to minimize interference.
- Plug the Monster FM Transmitter In:
- Insert the Monster FM transmitter into your car’s power socket (cigarette lighter). If your FM transmitter has a built-in display, it should light up.
- Pair the FM Transmitter with Your Smartphone:
- On your smartphone, go to the Bluetooth settings. Enable Bluetooth if it’s not already turned on.
- Put the Monster FM transmitter into pairing mode. This typically involves holding down a dedicated Bluetooth or pairing button on the transmitter until you see a blinking LED or hear an audible cue. Refer to the user manual for your specific model for precise instructions on how to enter pairing mode.
- In your smartphone’s Bluetooth settings, look for available devices. You should see the Monster FM transmitter listed. Tap on it to start the pairing process.
- Once paired, you may hear an audible confirmation from the FM transmitter.
- Select the FM Frequency:
- On the Monster FM transmitter, select the same FM frequency that you tuned your car radio to in step 2. This frequency is where the audio from your smartphone will be transmitted to your car stereo.
- Start Streaming Audio:
- Play audio on your smartphone (e.g., music, podcasts, navigation directions), and the sound should now be transmitted to your car’s stereo system through the selected FM frequency.
- Adjust Volume and Enjoy:
- Use your car’s stereo controls to adjust the volume as needed. You can also control the volume on your smartphone. Ensure that the audio quality is clear and free from interference by fine-tuning the FM frequency on the transmitter and the car radio if necessary.
- Incoming Calls:
- If your Monster FM transmitter supports hands-free calling, you can answer calls using the device’s built-in microphone and speakers. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for accepting and making calls.
- Power Off and Disconnect:
- When you’re finished using the Monster FM transmitter, unpair your smartphone from it via the Bluetooth settings on your phone. Some FM transmitters may automatically disconnect when you turn off your car, while others may require manual disconnection.
- Remove the FM Transmitter:
- If you’re not using the FM transmitter, unplug it from the car’s power socket to save power and prevent any drain on your car’s battery.
Keep in mind that specific instructions may vary depending on the model of your Monster Bluetooth FM transmitter. Always consult the user manual that came with your device for detailed instructions and troubleshooting tips if you encounter any issues.
