The only reason to knock a star off is the somewhat confusing interface of trying to turn it off. You have to basically repeat the process used to turn it on, but if you don't hold it down long enough you just end up putting it into pairing mode. Not that big of a deal, but it is rather stupid. Also it can be a bit inconvenient when you get a phone call and the receiver is buried in the center console because while you hear perfectly fine through the car sound system the person on the other end cannot hear you if the microphone on the unit is covered up. Common sense, but the first time it happens it takes a second to figure out what is going on.
All things considered, this product is definitely worth the investment to bring bluetooth capabilities to a car that lacks it but has a line-in.
+ Audio Quality is awesome (APTX)
+ Size is perfectly small
+ Battery lasts a long time (hasn't died yet)
+ NFC Pairing works well once you figure it out (put in pairing mode first then tap)
+ Music button controls (skip fwd/ back, play/pause, volume controls)
+ Has a microphone built-in for handsfree calling
- Buttons too small
- Bluetooth icon LED way too bright (Like illuminates your car in the dark like a blue nightly bright)
- Volume and skip controls should be reversed (Should be tap for volume, hold for track skip)
- Bluetooth range nowhere near what's advertised. Range is more like 5-8 feet.
- Doesn't turn on with car but easy enough to hold play button (triples as play/pause, power I/O, and pairing button)
Tested in car with the following songs at 320kbps on a Galaxy S4 with CarHome Ultra using bluetooth (Makes a good benchmark of different genres and music types to test the devices range):
Coheed and Cambria "No World for Tomorrow", "The Light & the Glass" "Willing Well II"
Queens of the Stone Age "Smooth Sailing", "Turning on the Screw", "You Think...", "Give the Mule..."
Marc Anthony "Volando en tus Brazos", "Flor Palida", "Aguanile"
Jay-Z "Roc Boys", "You, Me, Him & Her", "Takeover", "Gotta Have It"
112 "All I Want is You", "What If", "Come See Me"
You can turn the audio up or down using the device itself by holding the right or left button, and you can switch to the next song on Pandora by pressing the right button quickly--this is especially cool, because you don't have to grab your phone or iPod every time a crappy song comes on. You can also pause the music by pushing the middle button. Pretty cool.
There seems to be some confusion between this and other products. Some facts:
-Pairing it to my phone only took a few seconds. You only have to do this once.
-It turns off if you leave the car and go out of range (I'm not sure how long this takes, and there's nothing in the instructions explaining it). You have to turn it on when you get in the car--not a big deal.
-The sound is perfect. The unit is surprisingly heavy and seems very high-quality.
-The internal microphone (a nice little bonus that's not in the product description) works perfectly for phone calls.
-The little Bluetooth light slowly pulsates, looking kind of spooky and awesome--like something Michael Knight would have in KITT. I often pretend to be David Hasselhoff because of this product.
-You could hook this up to your home stereo, just keep in mind that you'll occasionally have to recharge the battery with the USB cable.
So before you consider spending thousands of dollars for a Bluetooth option in your next car, you can have the same thing (albeit with an unsightly auxiliary wire) for 25 bucks. The only thing it can't do is voice-activated phone calls.
