Bluetooth 2.0 compliant, you can either use its built-in speaker, or you can use its digital FM transmitter to send the sound to your car radio. It can give you up to eighteen hours of talk time (up to fourteen days of standby time) and comes with a car adapter to recharge it. Simply clips to your sun visor, so there's no complicated installation and moving it to another car is a breeze!

It also cheerfully pairs up with your Bluetooth enabled music player (here's where playing it out your radio really makes a difference), and it automatically scans for the best FM station to use in your area. Audio caller ID announces the phone number so you don't have to take your eyes from the road.

This unit comes highly recommended by our customers; perhaps you should see for yourself exactly why.

4 out of 5 eggsMoto T505

Pros: Very loud, haven't really felt the need to use the FM transmitter, stable BT connection with the Sony Ericsson phones in the household, simple to operate, and small enough that you can leave it on the visor w/o much worry. Voice dialing also works very well except when... See Cons.

Cons: Even though the BT connection is rarely if ever severed as far as voice transmission goes... Sometimes it seems to stop being able to transmit button presses from the device to the phone (such as to hang up or to voice dial), it's pretty random and may be the phone's fault so I'm not too worried about it.

Other Thoughts: I was kinda skeptical about how well it'd work, but the speaker can be more than loud enough and it really does block background noise rather well.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, portable, just works (no futzing with passcodes) with my (AT&T) Sony/Ericsson w580i. Announces incoming call numbers - nice touch in a sub-$100 unit.

Cons: Like I've seen in reviews here and elsewhere, you can't get around the fact it's using the FM radio band. The sound is a bit off (and some songs get really distorted very easily, but a bit factor in that is the MP3 itself, GIGO), and sometimes the tuned station just drops (why is it always the Hispanic radio stations that do this??? - big deal just switch frequency).

Other Thoughts: For easily under a C-note shipped it's worth it for me to not get a ticket. Now if only the idiot soccer moms in their SUVs would do the same! If you understand the limitations of a unit like this before buying, you'll have no problems, otherwise get a hard-wired unit like a Parrot, or a Bluetooth capable headunit.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Loud speaker. Low profile, Worked out of the box. No problems with setup or use so far. Long battery life

Cons: Two major buttons on back of device, make it inconvenient to fiddle with in traffic. Its just the Power button and the Radio button so its not a HUGE deal.... Seems to grab the first available channel rather than the BEST channel, but you can override with preferred station. ( again no big deal)

Other Thoughts: Could have a auto timeout feature that disconnects BT/turns off device. Several times I have missed a call because it was still tethered to my cell from the driveway when I was inside!!!

3 out of 5 eggsNot the greatest.

Pros: The battery life is excellent. Paired right up with the a Motorola KRAZR. Instruction manual is good. Newegg is very good at what they do. The order was easy and fast, the items arrived as scheduled.

Cons: It's very noisey. At first I thought it may be the car (Hyundai Accent) since it has a fair amount of road noise to begin with. But the results were still the same when using it in our new Toyota 4Runner, which is extremely quiet compared to the Hyundai. When my wife drives home from work during rush hour (Columbus OH), I often hear intereference from other peoples devices (bits of conversations and music). My wife says I sound ok but what I hear is pretty messy. I am pretty dissapointed in the performance overall.

Other Thoughts: It works well enough to use but there have been a few times where I have been pretty frustrated with the call quality. It was a gift to my wife for xmas, and I would have sent it back if not for that. We do not use the FM transmitter. It is simply paired to the phone as a way to operate hands-free.

4 out of 5 eggsGood unit

Pros: Works well easy to set up and use, has good volume as well as the caller can hear me. I like having a speaker as to one of those silly ear thingies (makes you look important----NOTTTTT). It holds a charge well and will sink with the FM radio if you need the extra volume but I rarely use it.

Cons: Sometimes I get a complaint that it sounds as if I'm in a big can or a hole, I tell the other party "I am". NO BIGGY.

Other Thoughts: I would recomend this to friends and family. New Egg is TOPS in service........

5 out of 5 eggsFather's Relief

Pros: Small, portable, works as advertised.

Cons: No AC charger.

Other Thoughts: Bought this because I was concerned about my daughter driving a stick shift with one hand pasted to her ear. Clarity on both ends is excellent and Mom now appears on the radio - kind of like the Mother's hour every morning. FM transmitter handles the tunes of the day as well. Well worth the price.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I was looking for!

Pros: This device works exactly how I expected, if not better. The pairing is simplistic (just like any other bluetooth device). It's speaks the code needed to pair the 1st time, making it extremely easy to use. I've never had to look at the instructions. It works great with my blackberry curve, controls all aspects of the MP3 playing function and sounds great. I love having the ability to hear my blackberry mp3's through my truck stereo and being able to take calls when they come in without having to turn the volume down. I've missed so many calls in the past because I didn't hear the phone ring when riding in the car, and now, because it's completely handsfree, I feel much safer when driving if someone does call, or if I need to make a call.

Last thing, it's absolutely great to be completely wireless, and it amazes everyone who gets in my truck to find out what it is capable of doing!

Cons: The only con is not really related to the device, but more the FM frequency strength of the device, which is limited by the FCC. In my area, I've tried several FM modulator's, and they all struggle to overpower broadcasts on any frequency. I have a 30-40 min commute, and a frequency that works great at my house ends up not working as well by the time I arrive to the office, but, again, it's not the fault of the T505.

Other Thoughts: Only wish you could boost the fm signal.

4 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed!!

Pros: This device was excellant for my trip out of town. Easy to work with and to setup. Very handy when driving a standard shift.

Cons: The speaker on the device wasn't loud enough for me but it ok. If your riding around in the city the FM finder works fine unless your riding out of town and it picks a station thats already being used. You will hear a lot of interferance until you change to another station.

Other Thoughts: It's a great buy! I only had it for a little over a month but I'm satisfied with it right now until I learn all of the few features that it offers.

2 out of 5 eggsIf you like music - think twice on this product

Pros: Conceptually this is a very interesting product with a great feature set. - if it worked. I'm using this with 2 HTC devices (Tilt - 8925 & Fuze - P4600), both w/ Win Mobile 6.1. The hands free phone function worked well. Setup was very straight forward without problem. The standard mini USB connector for charging adds much flexibility in what to charge it with.

Cons: There is a known problem (as indicated on teh included errata sheet) with some Windows Mobile devices (like their own Moto Q) that causes the audio when playing music to skip & have gaps. Motorola tech support is totally ineffective & incompetent when supporting this product.

Other Thoughts: I spent 3 days interacting via email & another hour on the phone with a total of 6 different Motorola support people. They could not get past their scripts & would not or could not escallate me to anyone that could even comprehend the issue. Additionally, they were difficult to understand as with most outsourced call centers they were not in North America. Their only resolution was to swap out the unit even though they admitted they have no fix for it & the new one would probably act the same way. BTW, the problem is not with the FM portion, but acts like a buffer problem on the BT side of the T505.

I finally gave up after much wasted time. I will probably keep it for the hands free function, but the streaming music function is almost useless.

If you use Windows Mobile, think twice about buying the T505 if you want to use the music function.
