2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing., June 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Plan-B High-End Portable Bluetooth LCD Car Kit With FM Transmitter And SD Card Reader MP3 Player - Mounts On Steering Wheel - For iPhone 4, 3Gs & 3G, iPod Touch 4G, BlackBerry, HTC HD 2, 7, EVO, DROID, Samsung Epic, Galaxy S Etc. - Black (Electronics)
I was really excited to get the Plan-B-High-End Bluetooth Car Kit, but it let me down. Prior to buying this I was using the Jabra CRUISER2 Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone which works perfectly. So why did I give it up, because I gave it to my dear husband to use so he would not get a ticket for talking on his cellphone while driving. I considered getting another Jabra again, but saw this and thought I would give it a try. You have to admit that the idea of having control of a bluetooth speaker at your fingertips is the best way to go since it sits on the steering wheel. I also thought it would have great clear volume since it would be level to to my mouth than above like a visor speaker. Boy was I wrong. First it is not an easy task to get it to attach to your steering wheel. It has to be a "snug" fit or it will move around. Second the unit itself it too big and has a poor design. It should of been designed to be flush inside the steering wheel. It sits out too much and gets in the way of making turns. Sometimes when I make turns I accidentally turn it off because my palm will hit the power switch after the steering adjusts itself after a turn. I also wanted to add that the tabs that hold the unit in place broke off when I was trying to remove it. I believe the heat from the sun might of soften the plastic tabs and caused the them to crack.

The sound is terrible. Even with the volume on max I could not hear clearly. I kept having to ask callers to repeat themselves. Callers also had a hard time hearing me. It also makes a horrible loud noise whenever you touch any of the controls while using the FM transmitter. It sounds like a firework pop. I live in a very rural area, so there are not that many radio stations around. Even with that being said, there was not one clear reception I could find on the FM transmitter that did not have static.

Sadly to say I returned the unit for a refund. I give credit for the idea of making it able to attach to the steering wheel, but it needs to be redesigned to make it more user friendly.
