"Not for 3G iPhone"on by kaz67
Pros Cordless and rechargeable features are good. Also does occasionally transmit to FM
Cons Must turn 3G iPhone Bluetooth on and off each time you enter the vehicle to get it to pair.
Summary This prouct sounds like it works well with other MP3/Bluetooth phones but not the 3g iPhone. It has to be "repaired" EVERY time you start the unit and DOES NOT transmit iPhone songs (none of these Bluetooth devices do, by Apple's choice.) This unit may work well with other phones but I would not recommend use with the iPhone 3G.
Pros Great sound quality both directions.
Cons Weak FM signal.
Summary While this speakerphone won't be found in any boardrooms like the Polycom speakerphones, it's sound quality is almost on par. The unit is about the same width and 1/2 the length of a pack of cigarettes. It has the classic, removable, elongated "C" shape visor clip to mount it to your car visor, which it grips like an alligator.
It has a built-in 2.5w speaker, which sounds just fine, or you can use the FM transmitter to listen to your callers or music playing on your smartphone. I found I have to increase the volume of my car audio system about 25% to get the same volume level as an FM radio station.
The power button is on the left rear of the unit and the call button is on the left front, meaning you have to be carefull to not press both functions when you are trying to turn the unit on. The unit will automatically power down when it no longer detects the Bluetooth device it is paired to, greatly increasing battery life.
The unit does a good job of finding an empty space in the FM spectrum to transmit on and announces the frequency when you turn the unit on. You have to turn on the FM transmiiter manually with a button on the right rear, with a white LED indicator that shows you it is working. The FM transmitter turns off within a few seconds after completing a call, unless you are streaming music to it.
Overall, I'd say CNet's review is pretty accurate and I can highly recommend this product.
Pros Fantastic, user friendly. Easy connectivity and great sound.Otherwise one of the best handsfree device with easy connectivity and great sound via bluetooth - FM to car.
Cons No multiple connectivity, LCD display.Just wished, multiple bluetooth connection is available . Also wishes it had a LCD display.
Summary Small, elegant, able to charge at home and in Car. Great sound, well priced, and easy connectivity to bluetooth devices.
Love it every time I used it.
Pros CAN CHARGE WITH AC CORD(NOT INCLUDED). YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE CAR CHARGER TO OPERATE SO THERE ARE NO CORDS IN THE WAY. BATTERY LIFE SEEMS GOOD. SMALL IN SIZE. GOOD NAME BRAND. SOLID PRODUCT.
Cons SLIGHT BREAK UP IN RECEPTION VERY NOW AND AGAIN BUT NOTHING BAD AT ALL. NO BIG DEAL FOR ME.
Summary VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT SO FAR. I LIKE BEING ABLE TO CHARGE THE UNIT WITH AC CORD (YOU CAN PICK ONE UP CHEAP) AND THERE ARE NO CORDS IN THE WAY. WHEN IT RINGS IT SOUNDS LOUD ENOUGH FOR YOU TO HEAR EVEN WITH RADIO ON AT DECENT LEVEL. IF YOU WISH YOU CAN PLAY CALLS THROUGH YOUR CAR SPEAKERS BUT IT WORKS FINE FOR ME JUST WITH THE SPEAKER ITSELF. VERY SATISFIED.
Pros Paired with my Storm very easily, internal speaker is very good, and the FM transmitter works great!
Cons Only thing I can think of is it would be better if you could manually select the station to transmit to.
Summary I was looking for a good FM transmitter to stream music from my BB Storm to the car. What I found was a great product that does that and more, all for a great price! I bought mine at Staples for $100 but it can be found online for cheaper. Also, with all the different states looking into different laws on cell phones while driving it is only a matter of time before you have to be hands free. If you are on the road as much as I am this is a great addition! Being able to stream my calls through my car stereo is awesome!
