Customer Reviews

I also can play the music I have stored on my cell phone through the T505 on my cars FM radio.
Buz Dog
The FM transmitter seems to work well but I'm in a very rural area so there is no problem with overlapping radio stations.

People on the other end say they can hear me fine and they come through loud and clear as well.

I bought a total of 5 (yes five) different Bluetooth speakerphones to test on my car visor and operate with my Sprint HTC Touch phone. Each unit has flaws and two are unusable in my opinion when used with the Sprint Touch. Your results may differ.

Here are the units I tested:
The Jabra SP5050, Parrot Minikit, BlueAnt Supertooth Light, BlueAnt Supertooth II and Motorola T505. I chose these units based on the positive user reviews on the Amazon site.

Now how they perform when paired with my Sprint HTC Touch...

BlueAnt Supertooth Light - Works good with few complaints. Connects automatically every time. Has mini USB for charging which is exactly the same as my phone. OK speaker volume (but the volume may cause an echo on the other end). I like how turning the unit on or off is accomplished by pushing the mic in/out. Magnetic clip is nice.

BlueAnt Supertooth II - Works good but doesn't usually connect automatically with the Touch. I need to push the talk/end button to connect. Best speaker volume (you can turn the volume too high which may cause an echo on the other end). This unit can be used with the visor up or down since the mic can swing totally open. Aesthetics might not appeal to some. I really like how turning the unit on or off is accomplished by swinging the mic in or out. Magnetic clip is nice.

Jabra SP5050 - Maybe the best aesthetics with very slim size. Easy to understand if it's on and connected with the alert tones. Very light unit and did I say how slim it is?
Terrible low volume with my Sprint Touch! The volume is unusable for highway speed driving and is a deal killer compared to the other units. This cannot be corrected using the volume on my phone as it's at max too! I was so hopeful for this unit.

Verified Purchase
I recently bought a 2008 Cadillac CTS. It is the best car I have driven to date, but the biggest problem it has is that all vehicles manufactured prior to April 2008 have no bluetooth. This is the first car I have owned without bluetooth installed since the technology first became available. Since I run a business and constantly use the phone in my car, I scrambled to find the perfect device.

Right now the two most popular BT devices are the Blueant Supertooth Light and the Motorola T505. It was a tough choice which way to go but I chose the Motorola because it had FM transmitting capability.

The one thing that is misleading about the pictures depicted of this device on Amazon is its size. I was amazed to see just how small the T505 is. It comes with a very strong clip that secures itself on the visor, and it easily slides on and off whenever you need to remove the T505 for charging purposes.

The included car charger is worthless for most because who wants that cord dangling from the visor? What is visibly absent here is a wall charger. I can't really get upset about this as it does have a USB socket that allows you to plug your device in your computer's USB port for charging.

Pairing was easy. Hold the Power button down for a few seconds (you may have to press PLAY as well) and the T505 goes into pairing mode. My iPhone immediately recognized the device and once you type in 0000 you are instantly paired. No need to pair the phone each time you enter the vehicle.

For best results make sure the bluetooth volume is all the way up on your phone. This will provide the loudest results from the built-in T505 speakerphone.

My first call came today while I was driving. A british voice announced the incoming phone number.

Here is a nice little product that I like a lot. It doesn't get 5 starts because it is not perfect, and it doesn't get 4 stars because it has problems, but it is still quite good and I use it a lot in my car.

The MotoRokr T505 is a battery operated bluetooth device that hooks to the visor and allows you to receive or make hands-free phone calls in your car. While it has its own speaker, it can also transmit the sound through an FM frequency so that you can listen to your calls on your car's stereo system.

Furthermore, it supports A2DP protocol, which means that if your phone is compatible, you can stream music to its speaker or to your stereo system. And not only MP3 music, as it works well with applications too (so, if you have Windows Media Player or equivalent application in your phone, you can actually listen to Internet Radio or Podcasts, for example).

The main problem I have with this device is the transmitter strength. While I guess that it could work well with a front side antenna, my car has a rear side and the signal strength is not that high. Makes it hard to listen on FM in a busy area (probably most larger cities). There is a workaround though, but it is a little annoying (keep reading to find out).

Other issues are the awkward operation. Turning it on and off is actually unecessarily hard, as you need to press the power button on the back of the unit for several seconds before it will turn on or off. For your own safety, do not try to do this while driving.

Another awkward operation issue is the FM frequency setup. This device will automatically search the current area and choose the "less" crowded frequency for you. It doesn't do a good job, particularly in crowded areas.
