This is an OK product but it could be better. Use as a speakerphone is good. Sound quality is ok for both listener and speaker. setup is easy and battery life is very good.
Listening to callers via FM is difficult as the tone is VERY low and bass-heavy. this could be a function of my radio or phone - but you can save about $40 by going w/ the cheaper version that does not support FM broadcast. In my setting the FM is almost unusable.
There are several annoying user-interface complaints. There is no way to control volume (or at least one that works) on the speakerphone.
The controls are awkward - and turning the FM on and off is hard to do while driving. The DC power jack is right next to the +/- button so that either the cord or the port-cover interferes w/ operation.
The confirmation 'voice' when turning FM on is disruptive - it re-confirms the frequency when activating FM - interrupting your call for quite a few seconds.
All in all a solid product, but needs work before it becomes excellent.

I have an LG Dare from Verizon that I use as a phone, a music player, and as a GPS. The Jabra speakerphone is exactly what I was looking for.

My car does not have an auxiliary input, nor does it have a cassette player, therefore the only way I can play music over the speakers is through an FM transmitter. I have a vent mount(Navman PIN Car Vent Holder - Gomadic Brand) for my phone so that I can use it easier while I'm driving. The problem with the GPS (VZ Navigator) is that you can not listen to music and navigate at the same time. This has it's own speaker so that the navigation can come from it while I can listen to cd through my stereo.

When I want to use the LG Dare as a music player, the FM transmitter works great. I really like the fact that it will automatically find a clear station for you. The transmitter is loud and clear. When someone calls, you just press the Jabra and the music pauses. People tell me that I sound loud and clear when using the speakerphone. I can also use my phone's voice commands with just the press of a button to call others. I have used other FM transmitters (Scosche Digital FM Transmitter and USB Charger) and have returned them. This one is the only one that worked. I have a bluetooth ear piece, but if you really want to drive hands free, you have keep it in your ear the whole time.

The best part... no cables. The bluetooth works flawlessly, and can easily be switched to multiple phones. Another huge benefit was the it comes with a micro USB cable (the same one that is used to chaged my phone!), and a universal USB car charger.

The only complaint (although fairly minor) is that the buttons for the volume and FM capability are a little to small to use while driving. This really only becomes an issue if you need to change the FM station.

I would highly recommend this product.

The device works OK. A little bit of static on both ends but usable. I find it very difficult to turn the power on and even more difficult to get the device to power down. They should have spent the extra 25 cents to put in an on/off switch instead of trying to use the answer button for dual purpose.

I've been using the product for about a month now and overall I am pleased with it. The size and design of the product are great--you barely even notice it on the sun visor of the car. It takes a little time to figure out where to press for certain functions since there are not obvious buttons for many of the functions. Rather you have to press the smooth face of the unit in a different area for power on/off and initiating/ending a call, etc. Initial set up and connection with my Blackberry Storm were simple and I had no problems at all. Sound quality for phone conversations is fine and I've been told that it is good on the other end as well. I would not recommend anyone use it to listen to music through the unit itself. When channeled through your car stereo via the FM transmitter sound quality is just fine--as long as you can get a clear FM frequency on which to transmit. This can be a challenge, especially when driving in more metropolitan areas. For whatever reason, the unit will not transmit below 88.1 MHz so using the normal default of 87.9MHz for this type of application is not possible. The "search" feature to find a new frequency is nice and the unit will use the entire FM spectrum. My biggest complaint about the product is that manually attempting to find a new frequency using the +/- rocker button is tedious. The unit will cycle through frequencies at 0.1MHz increments--including the even increments. So if you start getting some static on, say, 88.3MHz and you want to try 88.5MHz, you have to cycle through 88.4MHz to get there. I have never seen a car radio that will tune to frequencies such as 88.4MHz, 88.6MHz etc. Perhaps some newer car audio systems can tune to these even frequencies, but my factory installed system on a 2005 Subaru does not nor any other vehicle I've been in.

In the grand scheme the frequency adjustment is a minor issue. Overall, I've found this to be a good quality product that has allowed me to get my hands "free" in the car and provided a good means to listen to my digital music collection while driving. I would recommend it.

Works OK in the car when placed exactly where they recommend it and used with built-in speaker. When I tried to put somewhere else in my car, the other side reported noticeable sound quality degradation. Using FM link to car radio presented some dilemma. If I place device, where Jabra recommends it (on the driver side visor), then the sound that comes out of my FM radio is fairly noisy. Tuning to a different FM frequency didn't help. I could find another location in my car where my sound would be good, but then, as I mentioned before, the other side would complain about sound quality. I tried 2 devices and both had the same issue. I'm not sure if this is Jabra problem or my car(Accord) radio problem, as I didn't try it in another car.

I'm not sure why anyone would buy this for other reason than handsfree cell phone use. For that function it is perfect for me.

My phone is a simple LG Env2. It synced up instantly and completely. I was using it in about 2 minutes out of the package. I didn't charge it first as suggested, but I did right after!

The speaker and sound is clear and crisp, and with plenty of volume, which is adjustable. Whether I use the FM feature is in doubt. It works perfect the way it is.

This item would be 5 stars as far as I am concerned, but the instructions are so bad, for new users it would be difficult to set up

I live in CA which has a hands free law so I knew I needed a handsfree device, but I didn't want an earpiece for various reasons. (looking silly was one of them.) I did a lot of online research for speakerphones before deciding on this one. I have been very pleased since it arrived. I have had it 1 month and have yet to recharge it. It gets used every day for about 10-20 min at a time. I did my 2 hour initial charge from my computer's USB Port. The profile is very slim so it's not in your view while driving. The indicator lights, as well, are not distracting. They can be turned off at night if desired through a night mode. The microphone is exceptional. I don't have to raise my voice at all or lift my head to direct my voice. I can talk as if the person is in the car with me. I don't need to lower the radio volume, the person on the other end can't hear the music or the road noise. The speaker is loud enough that I can hear over my son when he screams. My only complaint: The American English voice is too harsh for my tastes. They need a new voice model for that mode.

Bottom Line: Great product, highly recommended

After purchasing this speakerphone for myself, I also bought it as a gift for others.
The Jabra clips on your car visor. The setup is easy, just follow the included instructions. The battery lasts for a very long time.
The voice is crisp and clear on both ends of the phone call. Jabra has a noise-canceling feature that is the best I've seen compared to other products on the market. The Jabra speaker is loud and clear.
If you don't have bluetooth standard in your vehicle, this is perfect for you!

I love it. Has a good speaker, even with every day car noise, i can hear with out any problem. It's been 4 years since I bought it and it is amazing how the battery goes an keeps going with out drying out. In a every day use from my house to work and back (total 1 hour ride) and the battery still last like four months until I have to recharge it again. Remarkable product.

I bought this for my wife and she used it for about a year. Her new car has bluetooth, so now it came to me.
I like the device, but sound is too loud. I try to lower the volume, but it will go right back to previous volume with new incoming call.
Volume has to be adjusted on every call either with device or my iphone. My wife didn't have this problem, I don't know why its doing
with my phone. But, it's not that serious and if you want hands free speakerphone, i would recommend Jabra. I had another brand for myself and Jabra is much better.
