Are you in this situation?
You own an old/older vehicle?
Your car stereo/radio doesn't have Bluetooth?
You'd love to play your music and phone calls via Bluetooth?
If you don't have Bluetooth in your car, this is the best gadget ever! I have been stuck listening to the radio for years, not knowing that the Socket Rocket existed...
I was a little skeptical about whether this would work in my car, but it works a treat! Ordered on Friday morning, got it Monday lunchtime!
I ordered the Double Trouble value pack for me and my partner and we love it! We use it in my older Navara and his Landcruiser.
This device has changed my driving drastically. Now I'm not stuck listening to radio music all the time. Spotify time!
I received my Socket Rocket within 2 days and I threw my old AUX cord out faster than you could say 'Road Trip!' LOVE IT!
Super fast shipping, easy wireless music and I can talk to loved ones with the handy built-in microphone! What else could I ask for?
Do you love your older car, but not your older car stereo? Same here! Introducing the Socket Rocket - the easiest way to play music wirelessly in almost any car!
What does it do for my car?
This handy device lets you stream/play ANY audio, music or phone calls from any Bluetooth-compatible device (e.g. iPhone, Samsung, iPad) to your car. The audio comes out of your car speakers, as if you were listening to the radio.
Best of all - no wires required. The Socket Rocket operates wirelessly via Bluetooth.
You can also charge up to two devices on the go and play off a USB/Micro SD card.
Will it work in my car?
The Socket Rocket works in ANY vehicle that has a working FM radio (most cars have), cigarette lighter socket and car speakers. We have set these up in hundreds of customers' cars for them, to their delight!
Also compatible in trucks (up to 24V vehicles).
Does it take a long time to set it up?
Absolutely not! It generally takes about 1-2 minutes to get started. Anyone can set it up in their car with ease. Our online or in-box instructions make setup easy!
How does it work?
The Socket Rocket plugs into your car's cigarette lighter socket. Simply connect your phone to the Socket Rocket in your phone's Bluetooth settings.
Tune your radio and the Rocket to the same FM radio station. Once complete, turn the volume up and play your favourite songs - with no wires needed!
Do not tune your Socket Rocket to a normal listening station, such as B105.3FM, as this will affect your listening quality. Simply tune it to a different, unused station, for example 88.3FM.

Can I take phone calls?
Of course you can! Simply press the green call button to pick up any incoming calls. The Socket Rocket has an in-built microphone on the left side of the front to make talking to your loved ones easier.
To make an outgoing call, you need to dial on your phone (when not driving) or use Siri/Hey Google to start a phone call.
Can I play Spotify or Apple Music?
Yes, and lots more! Whatever your phone plays will play through your car stereo via Bluetooth. This includes Netflix, Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud, YouTube, you name it!
You can even play music from a USB or a Micro SD card. To play via USB, plug into the right USB port, and ensure your USB is of a FAT32 format. To change your USB type, visit https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1012303/.
Can I charge my phone?
Absolutely! The Socket Rocket features two USB ports. You can also plug a USB with music on it into the right USB port. No more running out of battery! See USB specs below.
How good is the audio quality?
Fantastically crisp and clear! Our customers love it. It's very important to make sure you follow our instruction guide closely to make sure you get the best results from the Socket Rocket.
Will it fit in my car?
The Socket Rocket fits into most cars easily, because it is quite compact. To ensure it fits in your car, see the dimensions below:

Got a question? Browse our most commonly asked questions below, or get in touch if your question's answer isn't below.
How does the Socket Rocket play music?
You connect your phone to the Socket Rocket via Bluetooth, and the Socket Rocket then transmits what your phone is playing onto your radio system (stereo) in your car. It uses your existing car speakers that you normally use to listen to the radio.
What if my car's really old, will the Socket Rocket still work?
If you have a working radio, car speakers and a functioning cigarette lighter socket, then absolutely!
How do I connect my phone to the Socket Rocket?
Once your car engine/ignition is on and the Socket Rocket is plugged in, find HY-87 in your phone's Bluetooth settings and connect to it
What do you recommend using for the radio station with the Socket Rocket?
Our personal favourite is 88.3FM, however any FM station will work, provided you are not going near your major regular radio stations (e.g. B105 FM, 96.5 FM, etc.)
Can I play music off a USB or Micro SD card?
Yes, you sure can. However, if you are using a USB, the Socket Rocket only supports FAT32 file systems.
When will my order be shipped?
We strive for same day shipping where possible. We guarantee that your order will be shipped within 24 hours of placing your order, during business hours. International orders may take longer to dispatch due to a limitation on flights (COVID).
