Industry-leading Call Clarity
The Roadster keeps your conversations clear and eliminates background noise with dual-microphone technology for superior noise cancellation. You can even listen to your calls over your car speakers by using the FM transmitter. The loud, 2-watt speaker works to combat cabin noise and wind, so you can focus more on the road and less on what's going on around you.
Intuitive and User-Friendly
The Roadster automatically turns on when you get in the car and off when you leave, ensuring you are always hands-free. You can even answer or ignore incoming calls with a single word and use the dedicated voice-dial button to keep focused on the road. The smartly placed buttons provide easy access to the most-used functions, and audible voice prompts give you updates on Roadster's battery life and more. Perfect for long drives or on-the-road business calls, Roadster has up to 20 hours of talk time, so you'll never have to worry about cutting calls short.
Stream music via A2DP on Roadster's powerful speaker, or over your car's speakers using the FM transmitter. Advanced Multipoint lets you pair Roadster with two devices, so you can take calls from your business and personal phones at the same time. Staying productive on the go has never been easier.
A Smarter Way to Text
The Roadster helps you stay connected while staying hands-free, even when texting, with enhanced MotoSpeak. Hear your text messages immediately and then dictate your reply. MotoSpeak even announces who is calling from your contact list. Simply download the free MotoSpeak application to your Android-powered device (requires Android 2.2) and sync with the FINITI.
Make sure you have a phone with one of the following operating systems to enjoy MotoSpeak.

Design: Both units are compact. The Roadster's layout is somewhat more appealing to my eye. The Roadster's controls are labeled and easy to find. They are also illuminated. The T505's controls are not as well labeled or illuminated, but it is easy to use nonetheless.
The T505 has a reversible mounting clip, so it can work with cars like my Audi, which have sun visors that swing from front-to-rear rather than the usual rear-to-front. Roadster's mounting clip is not reversible, so I must mount it backwards in order to use it. Once the unit is mounted backwards, throw those easy-to-read labels and icons out the window. The T505 is made from plastic. So is the Roadster, but it also is partially covered by a nylon or poly cloth material that could prove to be less durable. While the Roadster features a more updated look, the lack of a reversible mounting clip gives a slight advantage to the T505, as the Roadster is hard to use when mounted backward.
Pairing. Both bluetooth units pair very easily, but the advantage goes to the Roadster, which announces that it is ready to pair and then does so quickly. Things couldn't be much easier then that. But the T505 is also easy to pair, just not quite as easy as Roadster. Also, the Roadster turns itself on when you enter the car, which is nice. The T505 must be turned on manually.
I paired both units with a newer Palm Pixi Plus and a slightly older Palm Treo 755p. While Roadster initially paired with this somewhat older 755p, after a couple of days it would no longer pair.Read more ›
It's clearly designed for droid phones, and on those phones you can download the MotoSpeak app and have it read texts out loud - and even allows you to compose texts hands free. Still, the basic and most essential functions appear to work with any Bluetooth enabled phone, and certainly with my iPhone 3G.
It hooks easily to the sun visor of the car, and the charger plugs into the cigarette lighter. It links easily with the iPhone, once you go into the settings and enable Bluetooth. After it's linked, the Roadster recognizes your phone, and turns itself on automatically, apparently triggered by the sound of an opening or closing car door. Once on, it speaks out loud that it recognizes your phone, and even says the name of the phone it's linked to. It also tells you whether it's fully charged or not.
If you receive a call, it tells you there's an incoming call and if your phone recognizes the caller it tells you who's calling. You can then say either "Answer" or "Ignore" and it will either pick up the call or drop it. You hear the call either through a speaker built in to the Roadster or you can set it up so it transmits directly to your car stereo through an unused FM frequency.Read more ›
This is my first motorola product I purchased from amazon.
-Quick delivery +
-Easy pairing. What a breeze for any non techies out there. +
-Speaker phone works great. + Everyone I spoke to so far had no clue I was on speaker phone. Its loud too except if the volume is on full blast it can be slightly distorted. Simple fix(don't put it on full volume)
-FM transmitter works fine. + Here is where I don't get some of the reviews. What do you expect? Dolby Digital, THX certified sound coming out of your car speaker from this device? You don't even get that from your handheld phone. If you find a clear FM channel and play around a bit, it will come in fine. Not 100% clear but what do you expect? Its a FM transmitter people. I think its perfectly fine and once again, nobody said they heard anything strange on the other line.
-Synch multiple devices. + This was really cool. I had two cellphones in my car and the device knew to switch back and forth between the two when I hit a button on either phone. I remember my old BMW which had bluetooth couldn't do this. I had to manually switch back and forth. So annoying while driving. This device did it no problem.
-Not sure about battery life since i've only had for a week but its seems fine. It would have been nice using mini USB charger instead of some strange connector from motorola.
-Haven't tried motospeak(speech to text) yet sorry.Read more ›
