I've owned many in-car Blue-tooth Speaker-Phone systems and I have to say that I'm very impressed with this Motorola Roadster Blue-tooth system. It was very well designed and works well with my iPhone 4G. In fact, I find it very difficult to find something bad to say about it. The only minor complaint I have is that when it syncs/pairs with my iPhone, it tells me the battery level of my iPhone instead of the battery level of the unit itself. I'm usually aware of what the battery level of my phone is, so it's redundant... and I'd much rather know what the battery level of the speaker-phone is. This is a very minor issue and I am impressed that it DOES display the battery level of the speaker-phone on my iphone screen when it is synced/paired. Other than that, this thing is great and I still give it 5-Stars.
Here are some of the reasons why I thought this speaker-system deserves 5 Stars:
-Easy to use
-Charges through standard USB to mini-USB cable.
-Syncs very easily and consistently... and speaks to you to let you know it's synced. Voice is easy to understand.
-It seems to sense when you are in your car and syncs accordingly even though the Blue-tooth range is much greater.
-Two options to listen to phone calls/music (through the on-board speaker or a radio channel of your choice through car speakers)
-unit is small, the buttons are backlit, and the clip stays clipped to the sunshade very well... it's sturdy.
-Long battery life and long standby time. I've had the unit sitting in my car for about two weeks and haven't needed to charge it again yet.
-Voice quality is good over speaker-phone speakers.
-Comes with Car charger & Cable... plus, frustration free packaging.
Conclusion: If you're looking for a great hands-free blue-tooth in-car speaker-phone that does the job and you're willing to spend a little more for the quality, this is the one for you. I rarely give 5-Stars for products, but I couldn't resist giving this one 5 Stars. It's is surprisingly well designed.
