"Buyer Beware"3.0 starson by ryanoudoak
Pros: Easy to set up and connect, good range, good clarity -- one reason I purchased was because I don't get cell reception in my basement and I was able to leave my phone upstairs and continue a call in my basement with this headset.
Cons: Does not stream music or other media from a mobile device -- including GPS turn-by-turn directions. This is not explained in this CNET review or on Amazon where I purchased this device
Summary: I didn't want to kill this device on the rating for a mistake made by me, but I did do research. I purchased this device for a couple of maini reasons -- make hands free calls and stream music and other media during the day at work. When I received this product, I spent hours looking on-line and trying to find an Android app that would help me stream media using this device because the review I read on here and the information on Amazon had assured me that this device could be used to "stream music, pod casts, and GPS turn-by-turn directions" as well as text messages, emails, etc. I think that it would probably stream music and pod casts from a computer, but I am not sure how the GPS turn-by-turn feature would ever be useful if it doesn't work with a mobile device.
How do I know it wasn't just by inability to figure out how to do it and not a fallibility overlooked by CNET? Because the tech support at Plantronics told me after I reluctantly called them as a last resort, having spent 4 hours trying to make it work myself. When I explained to tech support the trouble I was having and which model I had purchased, they told me that the Pro UC did not stream media from a mobile device and that I should be the Pro Plus. They also informed me that the Pro Plus was much cheaper.
