Pros: Does what it says it will do. If you use your phone as local storage with AALinQ, you also charge your phone. Consistent firmware updates. Some phones can 'stream' audio through this device, letting you listen you iHeartRadio, Slacker, Pandora...
Cons: Some firmware updates are a step backwards in certain areas like Audio quality and menu scrolling, but you can always use the previous Firmware. Not all phones support the USB Streaming Audio, but this was a added feature that came about after I purchased this product, so cannot be considered a con.
Other Thoughts: Item works as stated. I have no problems copying over audio files in a wide assortment of file-types to a usb drive or my phone and having this device play them once plugged in, all while retaining steering wheel controls. I am not sure why in this day in age all vehicles don't come with this from the factory.

Pros: It does what it said will do. - Take the video and reasonable wide range - works at night as well - And it increased the rear view area (It's larger mirror area)
Cons: Take a bit to get the camera adjust, hard to see the image at day so it's best to adjust at dust so the image can be easier seen. The cable and the memory card slot is a bit awkward to reach. (The cable location is OK, consider it makes it easier to route along the windshield edge.)
Other Thoughts: The cable was a bit hard to handle at first, however it become logical once I decide to route the cable along the windshield edge. This way no messy cable and not in any visual way. I just leave it plug in, so it turn on when I turn on the car and shut off in a min or two after engine shut off. The added mirror area is a plus.

Pros: FM Signal is clean Wide FM Channel Range USB Port for MP3 and WMA Files SD Card slot for MP3 and WMA Files External audio jack for Audio Devices
Cons: The well-written, albeit broken english instructions appear to be inaccurate, as this device will not detect my phone, nor will my phone detect it as a viable bluetooth device. There is no indication light that the bluetooth is even active after following the instructions and trying other methods to activate it which are common to bluetooth devices.
I had initially read the description for this item very carefully to ensure that it would play audio from my phone over bluetooth. The instruction manual also states that it is capable of stereo over bluetooth, but the seller's description now states that it does not. What is going on here???
Other Thoughts: I was leery of this purchase from the start and was expecting a functioning product with poor quality. What I ended up with was a fair quality product that appears to be missing key features! Despite my best efforts I am unable to utilize the supposed bluetooth functionality and have resorted to using the audio cable, which defeats the whole point of the purchase! I already own an FM transmitter, I wanted to get rid of the cord!
This thing comes with 2 infrared remotes, which baffles me. One of them has a Steering Wheel caddy thing, which is nice, except that I was under the impression that this particular remote was also bluetooth, and would be useful to have on the steering wheel. This is not the case as the infrared signal is blocked by the steering wheel and your arm, rendering it useless while holstered.
I may update this review later if I get the bluetooth function working, but for now, 2 eggs, as the product does perform well.

Pros: + Very Good Quality + Connect Phone for hands free calling + Front Cam + Easy to set up + Speaker is decent +Loop recording functionality + Comes with a 8GB Micro SD + IR Night Vision + Camera recording at 1080/720P
Cons: - Button on the mirror can be better
Other Thoughts: Taotronics Rear View Mirror with cam is a great device for car safety. It can be used as a rear view mirror, front cam, and a Bluetooth hands free speaker. The Bluetooth hands free feature is a big plus. I have connected my phone with the Bluetooth hands free and it works great. The sound quality on the call is good on both sides. The mirror is 13.6 inches.The screen (2.7 inch) on the mirror is also very clear. It also comes with an 8GB micro SD card that can be used for recording. The loop recording is another great feature. It basically removes the old recording once the storage space is complete. The camera has IR night vision, so it records well in the night too.I am giving this product 4.5 star. The con I gave is my personal preference and it shouldn’t affect your buying decision. The device is easy to use and the set up was really easy. The device also comes with a user manual in case you need it. Overall, I would recommend this product.

Other Thoughts: 1 star because YOU weren't prepared? Never assume what a product comes with. Next time ask before you purchase, instead of destroying a products review score due to of your own negligence.
