Pros The callers are telling me when I am using this speakerphone it sounds better then when I call them on my cellphone.Link between cell and speakerphone was quick and easy.
Cons Sometimes the fm link to play music or to hear callers through the FM radio will not be so good....
Summary Other then that problem with the link up,all the other functions work great.Even the sound coming from the SP700,when not using the FM link,sounds great. Blue indicator lights are easy on the eyes even driving at night and if you want,you can dismiss them for night time use.At first I bought the BlueAnt product,took it back after a trial and bought this one,glad I did....
Pros Wireless; Inexpensive; Easy Setup; Sound Over Car Speakers using FM Transmitter; Voice Announcements
Cons None so far!
Summary I have an iPhone 3GS and I was thinking of getting it hard wired through my 2004 Honda Accord Factory Stereo System. One benefit of that was that anything I played on my car stereo would sound great. The downside to that is that I would still need to use a bluetooth headset of some sort to be completely hands free. But then I did some online researching and I found this. Not only is it a far cheaper solution to my problem, but it's also a hands free bluetooth speakerphone too! So far I have not had any problem pairing it to my iPhone. Took about 5 seconds to get that set up. Once that was set up, I tested the speakerphone. Sounds great! One thing that is great is that anything that omits a sound will play over the Jabra. This is another reason that I got this. From my Navigon Mobile Navigator to Pandora to my music stored on the phone, it sounds good over the Jabra speaker, but even sound better over your car stereo speakers when I used the FM transmitter. So far I have not heard one audible hiss you typically get while using FM transmitters. Bottom line is I saved probably $150-$200 from going the direction of the hard wired option. I also hate having those damn little bluetooth headsets in my ear. Battery life on this is fantastic! I highly recommend!!!!
Pros Easy setup and pairing, loud & clear calls, displays caller id# on RDS tuner. Small, aesthetic design. Great Price too, $70 at Costco less $20 Coupon = $50!
Cons Weak FM signal, which makes for a lot of hiss, distortion and background noise in the music. Since this was one of the main reasons i bought it, it's going back!
Summary The unit is no more than four unobstructed feet from my antenna, yet it is not strong enough to provide a hiss free sound. It is also not strong enough to overcome distortions in the airwaves as you drive. So even though the distance never changed between the speakerphone and the antenna, it sounded like i was listening to a weak FM station far from its transmitter. Since these are open/public airwaves there is an issue of security too. Not that i'm likely to have top secret conversations, so i would rather risk the infinitesimally small chance that someone near me may be eavesdropping on what we are having for dinner that night, for increased signal and sound quality.
Bottomline. if all you want is a handsfree speakerphone, go for it. If you want to stream music, look for a hardwired solution.
Pros This item syncs quickly with my phone. The speaker is loud enough for a car. If i don't want to use the speaker it connects to my fm radio in seconds. Well built, strong, and sturdy!
Cons This isn't the type of electronic that you can just pick up and use without reading the manual. I believe this is only because i haven't ever had an item like this. Since this is my only "con" on this item, it's worth the money!
Summary Overall i think it's one of the best electronic cellphone accessories anyone could buy. It's easy to use, especially once you have figure out all the settings you like. (remember, if the person on the other side of the phone hears a buzz or sounds, you most likely need to adjust your visor. It could be to close to your mouth.) Also... Most users don't remember that if the channel it gives you has static, you need to have it provide you with another channel. I know people who have bought 1 and went back to buy one for their other cars because it's just that good! I hope this helps!
Pros Good FM connection, which is almost unheard of in SoCal. Excellent noise cancellation makes clear phone calls possible, even in a convertible with the top down. Sleek design makes unit nearly invisible to potential thieves.
Cons Wire clip is way too big for average windshield visor. Had to create a shim out of styrofoam to fill in the extra space. Caller ID via RDS does not work on my RDS-equipped stereo. Jabra technical support is non-existant.
Summary Product generally works as advertised and call quality is better than expected. No built-in caller ID screen makes RDS necessary, but it does not function on my RDS-equipped stereo Jabra offers no help on their websit.
