5 out of 5 eggsIOGear Solar Bluetooth Thing-a-ma-jiggy...

Pros: Simple. It worked great!!! Even better than expected since my cheap phone had build-in voice interface. Just push the big button and talk to the thing. After the initial charge, I stuck it to my windshield and never charged it again. Worked great in my noisy old Isuzu Rodeo. My Father-in-law liked it so much he bought one too.

Cons: 1. Hard to believe so many have experienced a DOA.
2. Voice interface was the phone.
3. Internal Li-on battery swelled after 22-months. (But I'll repair and continue to use this thing) I would have preferred a commonly available replaceable battery.

Other Thoughts: 2 important items:
First, different phone = different results. Got a new smartphone and couldn't control it via voice without looking at the phone screen. NOT IOGear's FAULT--I blame the phone. So I went back to a cheap phone.
Second, (2013 summer has been very hot here so...) after just under 2-years in service (just the other day) it didn't work. Pulled it out of the mount and it looked as if the case was part-way coming apart on the sides by about a millimeter or less. Hummmm!!! Since I'm a highly skilled (but retired) electronics technician, I took it apart and found the Li-on battery had swelled to about 2.5 times it's normal thickness. (Was this the result of baking in the hot car sitting in the driveway? I bet!!) The internal pressure was causing the case to be pushed apart and prevented the big button from working. Once I opened it up---it started working again, perfectly.
It's an easy fix for someone like me given the correct replacement part. Found a Li-on battery on-line (direct from China for $8) that looks like a perfect fit. It's a solder-in battery with wires; not a snap-in unit like cell phones use.

All-in-all... A nice little device if you don't have a car with Bluetooth built-in. Just take it out of the holder and place it somewhere out of direct sun heat on those super hot days.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bluetooth Car Kit

Pros: Bought this over a year ago and it has worked very well. The solar feature makes this unit so easy to use. The unit will even remember you when you go into the store and come out ...it is still working for you

Cons: A little confusing to set up but once it is paired with the phone it is done. The speaker is tinnier than I would like but you get used to it and it does pick up your voice very well.

Other Thoughts: I bought a second one for my son and he likes it.

1 out of 5 eggsAlmost DOA

Pros: none

Cons: Battery won't accept a charge. When working from the charger, bluetooth wouldn't stay connected to my Android phone.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy. Unit was unusable out of the box. I'd give it zero eggs, but the review software won't let me.
