The only reason I give it four out of five stars is because the user interface isn't completely fluid. I compare it to my wife's factory-installed Bluetooth device in her Prius, which immediately pairs with any pre-paired device and does not require you to manually manipulate the Bluetooth device in order to listen to music. But once the music paired, the streaming is excellent.
As an FYI, once installed, you will need to log onto Motorola's website and download the individual update files in order to have your Bluetooth work properly. At the writing of this, there were three updates I needed to do in order for the music to stream to my Bluetooth.
I also bought a plug-n-play harness so I did not have to deal with splicing into my factory harness.
Wiring this unit into the car took me approx 2 hours, only because I wanted to make the unit as stealthy as possible. I placed the controller to the left of the steering wheel. The brain was placed behind the stereo because there is plenty of room for it. I also ran the additional USB and aux cord into the center console right next to the blank plate where the factory AUX cable is. That is why it took that long.
Pairing was extremely easy for my iphone 4s. It connects within 10 seconds of turning on the car. It also plays my music through bluetooth, but I don't use it that much as I listen to the radio most of the time.
There is a slight learning curve, but it is not that bad.
All in all if you want to integrate bluetooth into any factory stereo, this is the unit for you! 5 of 5 stars, I would definitely buy again!!
I use an HTC One. Solid pairing with no skips or noise. Phonebook did synchronize but it takes about 5 minutes. I use Pandora Radio and it comes through well. And the play, pause, and skip track buttons on the TK30 control the Pandora. I can use the recent calls menu, but the text message function is not supported. I also found that Voice Commands are not to good. But I suspect that is because of the HTC and Google Search. Voice Commands are difficult from this phone to other devices.
I found that when playing music through the TK30, it uses its own amplifier.Read more ›
I ended up just using it for hands free calls which it admittedly does very well. All in all, worth the 80 bucks for hands free but doesn't do nearly as many things as advertised.

Not good enough, needs a lot of improvement as keeps freezing frequently, does limit your stereo sound quality and eventually won't work anymore. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Juan Rodriguez
Volume control wasn't controlled by the radio. Sound (bass/treble) was barely adjustable. Made the music sound like it was being played through a tin can.Published 17 months ago by Anonymous
