4 out of 5 eggsAlmost like satellite radio; bless the child that has ulimited data

Pros: Using with BerryTunes to listen to streaming audio from the internet.

Upgraded my phone from Blackberry 8830 with OS 4 to 9930 with OS 7. OS 4 was very "experimental" and required frequent babysitting. Buffering works much more smoothly with 7; sometimes drive 100 miles without having to touch the bluetooth -- the cellphone signal might drop out for a couple of minutes, and when an new cellphone signal is received, the stream starts playing without any intervention.

Cons: If you turn off the T505, I would expect the stream to continue playing from the T505's little internal speaker. Instead the BerryTunes just "stops" streaming, requiring button-pushing to restart.

If you change the FM frequency output of the T505, I would expect the stream to continue playing on the new frequency. Well, the T505 changes frequency, but the BerryTunes just "stops" streaming, requiring button-pushing to restart. And sometimes, you have to change the FM frequency output.

The FM signal is a little stingy. I made the mistake of keeping the T505 near the radio, and performance was noisy. Then I realized the car's radio's antenna was on the rear windshield. When I moved the T505 to the back seat (closer to the car's antenna), the FM signal was quite a bit stronger.

Other Thoughts: Another Blackberry ap is Public Radio Streamer (which is hopefully in Beta, but once a stream is chosen, it works fine). If you're a news junkie, load Public Radio Streamer with KCRW News from Santa Monica, CA. And choose from a million Classical music NPR streams. Or use BerryTunes to receive the other million streams that aren't NPR. Then play the streams out your bluetooth and out your FM radio.

Probably an improvement would be to upgrade to a car radio that has an integrated bluetooth receiver, i.e., directly from your smartphone to your Pioneer radio. Then the audio would not go through an FM receiver, but rather go from the radio's bluetooth receiver directly into the radio's audio amplifier. By avoiding the FM receiver in the audio stream, the audio quality would be improved.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a piece of JUNK!

Pros: It's blue-tooth

Cons: Noisy, it has a feedback echo - that you can't get rid of... It makes it totally unusable unless you like to listen to yourself?

Waited too long to return it - it,s now headed for the trash can!

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this model - there's good reason why its so cheap - Buy Motorola's more expensive - Motorola Roadster Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone - I have 3 of them installed in our semi trucks and they work great... right around $100.00 - but well worth it.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Disapointed

Pros: This unit worked pretty nice. I like the feature where it would search for a goo FM station to broadcast over, but.........

Cons: The unit stopped charging within a month of ownership. I still used it with the power connected from the adaptor. After antoher moth the device started making a loud sherking noise when turned on and never worked again. $39 of my hard owned money down the drain.

Other Thoughts: I bought this device because of all the great reviews but I am sorry to say the reliability of the part really, really disappointed me. It changed my mind about buying the higher priced Motorola products.

5 out of 5 eggsI Like It

Pros: Didn't feel the need to do much research on these devices since I shop alot at Newegg...this unit's on sale alot, & after reading alot of pro reviews I finally went ahead, & got one. Very happy with this unit...especially the ability to stream music, & call audio through the radio with good clarity. It feels so darn tight, sturdy, & well built, I was thinkin you could probably hurl it down the road like a baseball, then just plug it back in, & go like normal (wonder if the testing labs did that). I've always admired Motorola's small electronic products like phones,etc. that I've owned, & unfortunately dropped down stairs, or on sidewalks, & they've all kept right on ticking.

Cons: When I voice dial, or when a call comes in, & the unit announces the number, the audio is crackley, has alot of static. Doesn't matter if it's going through the radio or not, but during a call, or listening to music, it's clear as a bell. I usually have to do more then one search for a good frequency for radio output, but once I get some stations programmed into the memory I should be all set.

Other Thoughts: I could've probably thought up a better idea for charging, or placement for the charger input, or the fact that there's 2 control buttons that will always be hidden from view, but that is probably just an issue based on one's own personal preference, but I think the developers were thinking along the lines of compactness as far as design, & I feel they did a pretty good job on that as it is. Geez, you wouldn't wanna be taking your eyes off the road to be fiddling with it anyway. Definitely 5 eggs from me

2 out of 5 eggsHandsfree Systems Generally Stink

Pros: It syncs fine, it's idiot proof, the battery last a long time. It's nicely built.

Cons: It's not small enough. It needs to be about 1/4 the size. It's about the size of an Oatmeal Pie and extends about 1.5 inches or more. So if you are tall, you will see it in your field of vision.

The USB charging is a bit garbage. Would be nice to have a REAL PLUG also.

Other Thoughts: So generic comment about Handsfree systems that dont go on your ear. They generally stink. YOu can never clearly hear people, they cant hear you. Wind noise gets in the way (even with nice cars). I just think they arent worth the cash.

Two options for good quality.
1. get one for your ear and look like "that guy" who is calling in an airstrike. (aka, Tool)
2. Slow down turbo, dont talk while you are driving and pull over.

4 out of 5 eggsLove this unit!

Pros: Need hands-free technology for you phone? Look no further! I would easily pay $150 for this unit. The fact it is normally on sale for $60-ish is an awesome deal. Great call quality! FM Transmitter works great and sounds good! Very easy to setup! My girlfriend went from driving a car with bluetooth to not having it... she missed it so much I figured I would buy this. Best car gadget ever. The reviews speak for themselves! (Plus with hands-free you can pay more attention to the road)

Cons: Sometimes while using the FM transmitter it will get interrupted by radio signals. While the device does a great job finding the stations on its own it must not be quite powerful enough to override weak stations all the time. Just enough to take away 1 egg, but doesn't happen all the time!

Other Thoughts: If quality and price are of any concern you cannot go wrong. I would rate this above most other bluetooth options, even ones twice as expensive. Go ahead and buy with confidence :)

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Very good quality and amazing charge life. For cars purchased without Bluetooth this is THE option.....especially when you get it for such a great price that Newegg has sold it for. Audio is really good....never had any complaints. Even listed to my wife using it and it sounded very good.

Cons: Not sure I can list anything....i think that's just a con on me though. Well, i guess it could come with a long cable you can use to hard-wire but that's just reaching.

Other Thoughts: Great option for a car without bluetooth. If you have only used headsets you really have no idea of the freedom you are missing.
