_________ CONS: Made in China - apparently Nextar is a Chinese company.

I am hoping to replace it, and was generally pleased with it, but looking for a similar device with slightly better speakers...any ideas?

It makes driving and receiving calls much safer and easier to talk hands free.

I got this unit at another store,the reg price there was $99. We got it on sale (Black Friday) for a mere $21. Once I got it home and did the initial charge via the included dc charger-make sure plug is in and the oval ring around the big multi- function button turns "red", I've been using it. I had never heard of this type of bluetooth, I thought they were all the stupid looking earpiece things. One of my friends daughter had recently gotten a ticket for talking on cell while driving and had bought one of theses.
This comes with the window/visor mount. I use on visor since my window is a distance from me. When not using, I simply place on dash on a non-slip pad and it recharges in the sun...My friend who's daughter bought an LG model from AT&T for $78 says I sound MUCH better than she does on hers (she mounts to window). I also like the lcd display that I haven't seen on any other models. The volume on this is more than sufficient when all windows are up, down and I'm sure it would'nt sound well to both parties. One other thing, my wife was talking to my friend from passenger seat while we were driving and he could her her just as well and she was speaking in normal voice.
The build to this is very cheap (made in China-what a surprise). I read the others reviews and I'm sure there are some bad ones out there giving its cheap feel, but mine is working like a champ!!! I would NOT pay anywhere near the $99 reg price.

This speakerphone has the potential for being a very neat little unit, but it fails in its ultimate purpose: being a CAR speakerphone. While it may have good sound quality to the person you are calling if there is no background noise (in other words, if you're NOT DRIVING IN A CAR), once you introduce the whoosh of a moving car, you are rendered incomprehensible to the person listening to you.

PROS:
Solar powered - how incredibly awesome it is to not need to plug it in! No wires hanging from visors or windshields.

On/Off switch - unlike bluetooth headsets where it is questionable whether it is on or off, this has a slider switch on the side where you can quickly and easily turn it on/off without holding buttons, etc...

Windshield or visor mount - lets you choose where you want it.

Text display - most bluetooth devices don't show you who is calling or what the status of the device is. This one displays it right in front of you!
_________
CONS:
Made in China - apparently Nextar is a Chinese company. Kinda shows in the quality and feel.

Text display - very hard to read if you're wearing polarized sunglasses. The kind you would wear WHILE DRIVING. Also, it only flashes information on the screen rather than keeping it there (to conserve power?), so it's easy to miss what it says.

Speaker - at max volume (the kind you need on the highway) makes the holster vibrate (buzz) when the other person is speaking. The package comes with a scrap of sticky foam rubber that I think you are supposed to wedge into the holster somehow to dampen the vibrations.

Status LED - the phone button is lighted from behind when the unit is on. Red for charging, blue for active.

For such a small device, this thing is amazing. I had another solar charger mounted on the top right of my windscreen in my vehicle and it broke (because it got to hot... go figure). I found this one on another site (not amazon) and was able to grab 2, one for each of my vehicles.

Display - This is the most inexpensive display bluetooth speaker (solar or not) that I have found. The display tells you when there is a call coming in, and will let you know when the call was disconnected. It also displays a little battery when it is charging via solar or the USB charger.

Speaker/Range - Even with my low-end phone, the speaker works great. I do not have to take my phone out of my pocket for it to connect, but if I want to have a conversation, the phone has to come out. Once out, people can only tell I am on a cell phone, and not on a speaker or a bluetooth device. I can hear people even at high speeds with the windows cracked, very powerful speaker.
(The people complaining about the quality should check their phones against other bluetooth speakers before blaming this device for their call quality)

Usability - Unlike most bluetooth devices, this one has a toggle switch that will let you turn the device on and off quickly and easily. The center button is used to make calls, disconnect calls and ant to ignore incoming calls (if pushed twice). On the side there are 2 volume buttons, up and down. The display tells you how loud or quiet the volume is (similar to that of a phone).

Initial Setup/Pairing - This took maybe 30-45 seconds. Holding the main oval button on the device, I told my phone to look for devices. It found it, and paired it without any code or password.

Verified Purchase
I have been using this device for 2 months now and it works great. The display is really handy for knowing whose calling and remaining battery life. For those having problems hearing from this device, try turning up the volume on the cell phone and the NXBT-002. If the volume is low on your cell phone so will the volume on the NXBT-002. Trust me when I say, this is a very good device and for $20 you just can't go wrong.
