Easy install, great sound...Works very well with my iPhone/Siri.

The people on the other end of the call had a hard time hearing me, so the sound quality is not too great.

So you can listen to the music on your iPhone AND receive phone calls, AND use the GPS system.

This review is based upon my first day's experience using the Belkin with an iPhone 4S and Siri. I wanted to be able to have my iPhone connect to my car stereo for hands-free phone calls and iTunes. I tried the Motorola Freeway, which looked great in the advertisements (one feature is that it automatically connects with your phone when you get in the car), but in real life it was a big disappointment...mainly because it played via FM signal through a separate portable speaker unit that clips to the visor, rather than playing through my car stereo. Since returning the Freeway, I've been hoping something like this Belkin would come along. With the overwhelmingly positive reviews, I couldn't wait to get one of these. I installed it in the car this afternoon. As others have noted, it couldn't be easier; it only took minutes, and in seconds it paired with my phone.

Once you've decided where to mount the microphone/activation button, plugged in the power (to your cigarette lighter) and plugged into the AUX jack, you're good to go. I installed the microphone/selector button on the vertical plane of the dashboard just behind and to the right of the steering wheel (my Scion xB dashboard is PERFECT!) The length of wiring between the cigarette plug and the AUX plug is fairly short, but they do provide you with an extension cable if you need it (I did). Hiding the wires was easy...in my car, I just tucked them up inside under the console. A nice feature: the piece that slides into the cigarette lighter socket is about half as long as most car chargers, so it's almost flush with the panel, rather than sticking way out like most car charger plugs.

Style Name: Bluetooth
I had previously been connecting my HTC Thunderbolt (Android smartphone) to my cheap Dual head unit directly through the rear AUX (RCA plug to 3.5mm stereo plug) and was getting tired of having cables all over the place. Another big problem I had with that configuration was an annoying hiss/hum in the audio when my phone was plugged into the 12V power plug. The Belkin CarAudio Connect took care of the first problem, now down to a single cable going to my phone (12V to USB), but the audio hiss/hum was now constant.

After doing some research, I learned that this feedback is called a ground loop is a pretty common problem with certain audio configurations, especially in cars. I swung over to the local small electronics chain store and picked up a Ground Loop Isolator for $17. Installed it in the parking lot, the hiss/hum was just about eliminated and the audio quality actually seemed to improve a little. These devices can run from $11 to $45 for what I have found, each seem to have their own pros and cons.

Another problem that someone mentioned in another review is that the unit stays on if your car does not kill the 12V power supply when it is turned off. To solve this problem, simply hold down the button on the device until it disconnects from the phone, then hold it down again until the light turns off. From what I can tell, this turns the device off.

One other thing that I noticed is that people are now saying that this device has dropped to $45. Belkin's website lists two similar products - one with Bluetooth (this one) and one without. The one without Bluetooth is priced at $45, with Bluetooth at $79.

First, let me say, this is a happy ending to a long story. I tried multiple solutions and this one worked the best for me. The BlueTooth audio (stereo) from our iPhones is great! The audio for phone calls is not great but works fine, especially for hands free use.

My first attempt was using a cable solution that plugs into the bottom of the iPhone using the 25-pin connector. The cable split into two where one side went to a DC power adapter and the other side went to the AUX input on the GM factory stereo (HHR SS). This was a slick solution but the description for the product left out one detail - you can't use it for hands-free phone calls. Apparently Apple does not pass telephone audio through the 25 pin socket.

I then tried the Griffin BlueTooth Aux for iPhone which was very highly rated on the Apple site but mediocre on Amazon. This product sounded great and worked very well for hands-free conversations but had problems reconnecting with our iPhones. The DC power outlet in GM cars is always on, so the Griffin Bluetooth Aux never reset itself. For whatever reason, we would have to go through the Bluetooth settings on the phone to reconnect every time we got in the car. Note that the two were still paired - just not connected.

Finally, I tried the Belkin CarAudio Connect AUX (Previously called the Belkin AirCast BlueTooth In-Car Adapter). This one worked! A really nice feature is that it powers down after 10 minutes without a connection. Now when we enter the car we press the button the little disc you see in the picture and it turns on, reconnects to you device, and starts playing whatever audio you last listened to. If it does not start playing your music you simply press the disc again as this acts as the PLAY / PAUSE button.
