So not to get too technical, but with the latest version of Bluetooth (AVRCP 1.3) the Satechi unit doesn't work properly with most of the apps on my Android phone. The music cuts out about half a second after I start playing it. So why 5 stars? I wrote Satechi about this issue, thinking I wouldn't get much of a reply (if any), and I got this:

"We are very sorry for any inconvenience this has caused and for not getting back to you sooner. When music is streaming via Bluetooth on the Soundfly View, two functions are utilized. One is A2DP and the other is AVRCP, as you seem to be familiar with. A2DP correlates with music streaming and AVRCP corresponds to the remote control function. The issue you've encountered is due to the View opening A2DP and AVRCP simultaneously when streaming music. However, in most versions of the Android OS these functions are not always in sync with each other. For example, when ending your music stream, AVRCP stops but sometimes A2DP doesn't stop.
We basically had to choose one thing to focus on among A2DP and AVRCP when developing the Soundfly View. We chose to follow this AVRCP signal based on the fact that iPhone's A2DP didn't stop for 5~10 seconds after music stopped. Subsequently, at this point we decided to shift our focus more towards the iPhone's OS. As a result, the View's application of AVRCP is different than most Android phones (as they appear to have incorrect AVRCP protocol). However, we have recently addressed this issue in our latest revision of the product and are currently awaiting this new batch of units. I will notify you as soon as they are available, at which point, we will gladly exchange your current version with one that will fully support your Droid's Bluetooth protocol. If you have additional questions or concerns please let us know."

A very detailed response, and an offer to replace my unit with a newer one! Talk about customer service!

Disclosure: I was contacted by Satechi and given a SoundFly specifically for the purpose of reviewing it.

Test devices:
HTC EVO LTE 4G
Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G
Samsing Galaxy S II
Kindle Fire HD 7"
Google Nexus 7
ASUS Transformer (TF101)

Oh Bluetooth, how I love thee. Too bad you're not built into my car. But at least there is the Satechi SoundFly to fill in the gap.

Over last twenty or so years, I've used quite a few adapters to pump sound into the stereo of whatever car I happened to have at the time. Cassette adapters, FM transmitters, and AUX input adapters of many sizes, shapes, colors, brands, and price ranges. I'd sworn off most FM transmitters long ago. Worthless pieces of rubbish that invariably would end up with frequency drift as they warmed up or not have enough power to overcome even the weakest of radio station broadcasts. AUX input adapters were the way to go for me, though more difficult to install as one usually needs to access the rear of the head unit to tap into the sound system. And while that works, works even better if the AUX port is already part of you car, there is still that cable tethering my phone to the car. Two cables, if it's charging. Maybe I'm too picky, but I'd like fewer cables if possible. So now we come to Bluetooth adapters like the SoundFly, Parrot MINIKIT (own one), GOgroove FlexSMART X2, and Parrot PMK5800.

These devices all try to do the same basic thing - get all the sound from your device to your car stereo without using a wire between your phone and themselves. Of the four, I found the SoundFly to easily go above and beyond the other three in several distinct and important ways.

I purchased this product to use with a Samsung Galaxy II Skyrocket (Android version 2.3.6) in my 2002 Dodge Dakota for Bluetooth music and hands-free calling. I'm very happy with this purchase.

The device has a sufficiently strong FM transmitter that it can overcome the nearby FM radio stations that normally cause static and poor sound quality with this sort of FM adapter.

Music quality through the car stereo is good for a Bluetooth device, although a little muddy. Song titles and artists appear on the car stereo display (you need an FM receiver with RDS for this to work), as well as on the device's screen. Voice quality for hands-free calling is good on the reception end (my end). I've been told by people I'm calling that my voice sounds a little muffled, but that's probably true for every automotive hands-free solution other than a headset.

Construction quality of the device seems good. The controls and menus are reasonably intuitive, and well-explained in the short manual that comes with the device. Pairing the device with my phone the first time was straightforward, and has worked automatically since then. Text on the device display is legible, but not beautiful.

I haven't tried the analog, SD or USB inputs yet, or transferring my phone's address book.

Pros:
- Great sound for bluetooth-to-FM transmission (surprisingly deep bass)
- Device looks and feels like a quality product

Cons:
- User interface is not very smart
- May interfere with other bluetooth devices
- Bendable neck takes up too much space for some cars

*Note that throughout this review, the phone I'm using for bluetooth connections is an Android 4.0 Galaxy Nexus.*

I purchased this device along with a GoGroove SmartMini (which is like the popular GoGroove Flexsmart X2, but without the long neck). I first tried the SoundFly View in my 2006 Land Cruiser, which has integrated bluetooth for phone, but not music. I wanted to use the Soundfly View for music only, and the integrated car system for phone calls. I was surprised at how deep the bass sounded for the bluetooth-to-FM music transmission. The device also looked nice in my car; it matched nicely with the other high quality components of my car interior. However, I soon learned that the SoundFly View was interfering with the integrated bluetooth system in my car (i.e. when my phone was connected to both devices, the phone audio in the car system would sound very distorted).

At that point, I considered using the SoundFly View for both calls and music and abandoning my integrated car bluetooth system. However, the interface on the Soundfly View wasn't up to par, making that approach impractical. Let me explain... I was easily able to sync all of my phone contacts with the Soundfly View, but there was no option to create individual contacts, meaning I either had all 300+ of my contacts, or none of them. This is an issue because scrolling through the list of contacts (starting with a given letter) can take a while using the View's jog dial.
