1 out of 5 eggsCheaply Made!!!

Pros: It seemed to function well when I first plugged it in. The mic picked up ok on the other end, and it streamed audio from my phone through the aux port in my car quite well.

Cons: When I pulled it out of the aux jack, the two plastic halves that formed the casing fell apart right in my hand. The casing was obviously not adhered together properly at all. All of the internal parts came loose when that happened, and the button fell off and landed somewhere in my seat track where I can never recover it.

Other Thoughts: Even though it is functionally good, I would strongly urge against purchasing this due to it's lack of durability. Based on what I saw, I wouldn't even want to throw it in a backpack or briefcase.

4 out of 5 eggsNice, but do be careful

Pros: Excellent sound quality, both music and calls. Pairs as easily as one could ask for. It beats plugging and unplugging an aux cable when getting into and out of the car, and is an effective workaround for any ground loop hum that would come through your phone itself when on a charging cable.

Cons: You'll have to be careful not to bump it too hard. After I accidentally bumped mine, the shell popped apart. It snapped back together pretty easily, but popped apart again the same day. After a few cycles of this, I ended up strapping a couple of small zip ties on it to keep it shut. That seems to be doing the trick.

When the device is plugged in to charge, it does cancel its own ground loop noise, but only while the phone audio is in use. When it's on standby, it's a bit noisy and you may find that you have to turn your stereo either off of aux or off altogether. In practice, you're not likely to find this a problem—if your phone's audio is off, you're probably tuned in to something else anyway.

Other Thoughts: If you're okay with either installing the thing totally out of harm's way or simply making an effort to prevent it falling apart, I'd actually still recommend the item (not that I've tried anything else that does the same thing).

I asked my wife for it for Xmas after getting jealous of the handsfree/streaming features of her new car. I'd say there's no longer a need to be jealous. :-)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: Works very well at both streaming music and phone calls. Sound output and mic are really clear. Great option if you have an aux input or cassette deck in my case.

Cons: Would prefer if it turned on automatically when it gets power. Otherwise no complaints.

Other Thoughts: I have it hooked up to power all the time so I don't know how the battery life is.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I was looking for!

Pros: Works flawlessly according to advertising and instructions: pairs and remembers pairing for my cell phone and laptop, streams audio for at least 5 hours,

Cons: Proprietary charging cable so keep it in a safe place!

Other Thoughts: I bought this to be used in my over-the-ear monitor headphones with a removable cable, and it just plugs into the jack on the headphones to allow for music streaming and taking phone calls.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as promised

Pros: Small in size, easy to setup, great sound quality, good compatibility with my Palm Pre Plus (almost nothing works good with my WebOS phone). I have no complaint in the hand free mode for my cell phone either, it switches from music to phone mode automatically when a call comes in and I can answer it by pushing the motorMOUNT button. Once I am done with the call, the music automatically continues exactly where it left off.

Cons: I don't really have anything to complaint about, but if I have to I would ask for a longer charging cable. The one that comes with the unit is about 2 feet long and it has a proprietary tiny connector, so no option to replace it with a longer one.

Other Thoughts: Some people complaint about the battery life on this thing, but I get over 3 hours of continuous podcast streaming before I have to recharge. This is a very small and light weight item, so in my opinion the battery life is outstanding... specially considering that it can outlast my phone's battery life. I could not be happier with my decision to get the motorMOUNT, I highly recommend this product.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: -audio streaming
-sound Quality
-Microphone
-Call Quality

Cons: -Battery Life
-Size maybe

Other Thoughts: This unit is exactly what i expected. It streams the audio nice and easy really could not ask for more. The only drawback is the battery life it is not 5hrs, but with the car charger included it works. Hands free calling works good have tested the mic and everyone says i come in clear.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great in my car!

Pros: I can hear the conversation clearly through my car speakers and callers on the other end have no complaints about the call quality. The AUX extention works great since the AUX port in my car is in the center console.

Cons: Battery does not last as advertised
The base of the AUX port extender comes apart easily, but I'm sure some glue can fix that.

Other Thoughts: This seems like a good Bluetooth solution without having to have a Bluetooth earpiece. It's even better that you can adjust the volume to your liking through your stereo :D
