The Bluetooth unit tended to loose the connection with the phone (HTC Desire HD) very frequently and need reconnecting. Music via the device was clear.
Would have been nice to have a facility to randomise tracks rather than a linear playing sequence.
Not as clear as cd and slightly less sound than radio but good none the less.Easy to set up.
Audio quality is superb with no bass rumble or high tone clipping even at high volumes. Don't think just FM radio station quality, think the best FM quality. I do have a top of the range 12 speaker system installed, so I can tell good from bad.
Phone calls are just great too. Callers have reported some background noise when I'm on the move, but i am using it in a 10 year old Land Rover.
If it works well in my old Discovery then it'll work in anything.
It arrived within a couple of days. My first impression when I opened it was it was smaller than I was expecting. I am used to Bluetooth devices so it was just a case of plugging it in and pairing it up. Once I found out how to scan for clear frequencies it hasn't been off. It's simple to use, not intrusive, there's nothing to plug in to your phone and it gives you the added bonus of hands free calling through the car stereo.
I would recommend this device.
The bluetooth connection to my Iphone is perfect and so easy to set-up. The connection was solid and did not waver.
It is easy to dial in the radio transmitting frequency, it is very visible on the goose-necked attached display. Again the radio transmission was steady and does not waver. Good reception gained on car stereo and good clarity - pick an appropriate quiet frequency area of local FM channel, and there is no persistent background hum as you get with some units.
The music controls button on the periphery of the display unit are large enough to use when the car is in motion. The telephone feature works adequately and I had not problems using it coupled to an Iphone.
I am very pleased with this product and would recommend it to others.
This is by far the best one I've used. There is zero background hiss when playing music and I havnt even had to find a 'dead' frequency. It seems to overpower pretty much station that's on!!
Connects quickly when u get in the car and the clarity of the hands free is good. I use it whilst my phone is in a cradle on the windscreen and the mic easily pics up everything. Can also charge your phone if u buy an additional USB whatever your phone needs cable.
Great, this will be the last one of these I buy!!
Great service from mobile fun keeping me informed about delivery.
The sound quality from the devise is very good, with music coming through to the car crisp and clear.
There were some issues of poor communication at the time of ordering with the item being out of stock, but a second call to customer services sorted the problem and all actions after this point were as promised.
I would order from Mobilefun again and would recommend this product.
I give it 5 Stars ******
If you want to have a wireless with phone calls and music in your radio!
In comes with a small manual giving details how to connect. However I only looked to see which button to press to pair to the iPhone 5, and it was instantly connected within 8 seconds.
And as soon as I found a station that no radio station used, I connected the device to this station, went to the iPhone music, made sure the AirPlay was switched on to the device and music from the iPhone to the car speakers was paying.
The only downside to this, is the volume is lower than the radio stations.
I did find the rubber grips on the power plug can get caught on the cigarette lighter socket internals and cause it to get stuck, so be conscious of the way you insert it to line up the rubber with the smooth faces of the socket and there's no issue. Forcing it once it gets stuck could potentially dislodge or damage the rubber.
The unit has an auto-clear-station-finder function which is not advertised on the site, but this is a great time saver. I'd been looking at the GOgroove FlexSMART X2 unit which had this feature and was disappointed that it wasn't mentioned in the product description - but it is there.
The sounds quality is unbeatable and if you serious about music in your car, go for this one.
Firstly, I can not describe how impressed I was when I recieved my item at 11.00 the morning after ordering it at 17.30. The swiftness of delivery was amazing.
Secondly the item itself is wonderful. It was easy to install/tune into with a very simple guide book that came with the kit. The kit itself although quite thick is easily moved around because of the flexable attachment and so it doesnt get in the way of the gear stick.
Another very good part of the kit is that I am able to plug in my phone via a USB and charge it whilst still being connected to the handsfree and playing music. I honestly am unable to think of anything I can say against the product. It is truely wonderful and I would reccomend to others.
Having actually been using the unit now for a week I am very satisfied. It's relatively easy to set up and once configured it connects to my phone and transmits to the radio with minimal start up time. Plug in, turn on and go! Much better than the Bluetooth head unit I had in my previous car that usually required 5 minutes before I got my phone outputting through it.
Also, the microphone seems to be excellent because everyone I talk to using hands-free can hear me clearly.
So, overall I am very happy and would recommend this to anyone.
It's easy to setup too
I highly recommend this!
It remembers my phone each time I get in the car and when talking to people by phone through it the quality is by far the best I've found in any Bluetooth system yet! Also, unlike others it automatically charges from the cigar lighter so won't 'die' on a journey leave wires trailing across the dashboard.
Also, if anyone else gets in the car with a phone or iPod its really easy to switch user. Well worth the money!!
Receiving and making calls is really simple and I found the sound quality fantastic with very little distortion through my car's speaker system. I also love the units ability to play music from my iPhone without wires...fantastic! Being able to control the track selection from the unit is another excellent feature. On a long journey the unit kept it's frequency perfectly with no drift. The only niggle i've found is with the dial button. The default function is to change the FM transmission frequency, and if you press it you change the volume. I've gone to change the volume and not pressed the button firmly enough, then changed the frequency in error! It would have been better if the functions were reversed.
Only downside - I just can't seem to pop it out of my power point; I drive a Ford Focus, nothing too unusual there so a bit surprising.
1)- Easy bluetooth pairing every time-with Bluetooth V2.1 + EDR.
2)- A2DP + AVRCP for streaming music and SatNav instructions -Next track / previous track / pause & volume control.
3)- Easy FM pairing to car radio.
4)- Easily make, take, cancel & end call with auto music muting.
5)-Line out to connect to radio instead of FM transmission.
6)- Line in for any device that outputs sound via 3.5mm stereo plug.
7)- No battery needed - it draws its current from cigarette lighter.
8)- Charge your device from USB socket -5V / 1000mA.
9)-Flexible gooseneck to position this device for optimum microphone input and operation of controls.
THIS HAS IT ALL - affordably priced.
The unit itself was very quick & easy to set up. My Galaxy S2 works brilliantly with it for hands free phone calls & for music. Excellent.
known phrase. Being Bluetooth sound through the sterio is
clear and hands free works a treat worth the money.
Plugged the device into my car and started fiddling with it. Took me around 30 mins(my fault for not reading the manual) to get it up and running.
It works flawlessly. I cannot praise the quality of sound enough. Calls through bluetooth are excellent. FM music playback is excellent. You need to choose a frequency thats not used by any other station to make it crystal clear. I dont need to burn any more CDs to play in my car as my Samsung phone can handle all the music and films I want to play.
One thing that the manufacturer needs to work on is the cigarette lighter socket. It doesnt seem to work when plugged in. I had to fiddle with it alot to find the correct position to pick the power up. I have now left it like that after setting the unit the way I want. If I move it even half an inch, it looses the connection from the socket.
It would've been nicer if they had developed it with a wire and a stick on pad to place it where ever the user wanted to place it instead of a gooseneck but thats my preference.
Apart from this isuse, the sound quality is excellent. It is parallel to Parrot and other high end products.
I will most probably modify this unit and repalace it with a wire and place it in an empty space near the vent or hazard light button. Dont like the goose neck.
If you are after quality sound and a true handsfree kit, by all means go for it with thinking twice.
Just for the dodgy power connection . I am giving this product 4 stars.
Hope this helps.
I'll start with the negatives though, which may apply only to me...
- When it's first powered up, the volume is distinctly lower, even although the volume level says it is what it was left at. I find I have to manually turn it up and down a bit to "wake it up". Assume that's the unit and not my handset
- I haven't found a way of storing which radio frequency it transmits on. It might be possible, but every time I turn it on, it reverts to the top of the dial
- Fortunately, this isn't used where I am, so it's not a problem
It paired straight away and worked with my One X. Sound quality is great (although I haven't compared with any Bluetooth V4 units), and everything just seems to work.
Calls through it are good - people can hear me. I suspect they would be better if I could work out a way of using the handset's mic, which I think has better noise cancelling qualities. Not sure though.
It's replaced a failing cassette adaptor that I had to keep plugging into my phone every time I wanted to use it, and it's obviously streets ahead!
I looked at the new official HTC car kit, and it was far too expensive. That, and I didn't have an aux in on my head unit. My travels then took me to this which seemed too cheap to be any good.
Fortunately, I was wrong.
After that one I bought one for my wife to use in her car too with her Blackberry.
Overall I'm really impressed with these - they seem sturdy enough and extremely easy to use.
The only thing I don't like is the frequency dial on the top of the device is a bit easy to accidentally catch when you're changing tracks, but maybe that's just me.
A simple bit of kit, but does the job ... and great if you ever have to get a courtesy car!
sound quality - superb
