very easy to use
 from cincinnati oh,  Nov 29, 2009

I was looking for a hands free device for use in the car that was easy to use and inexpensive. this item fit the bill perfectly.this item does not have a lot of features but what it does, it does well. right out of the box I was able to link to my cell phone and make a call. the buttons are very simple - on/off, call, and volume. the main button is color coded red/green/blue/purple lights tell you what it is doing. once you know that you know if it is working.once I linked to my phone it did not need to do it again, all I have to do is turn on bluetooth on my phone and when I get in the car, turn on this unit and the phone is immediately located. the unit does turn it self off after a period of non-connection so you do have to turn it on when you first get in the car. however I have forgotten to do this once or twice and when my phone rang in my purse, turned it on and it linked to the phone so quicklly that it was able to answer the incoming call for me.the sound quality is adequate - it sounds like you are on a headset and there is a small echo if you turn the volume up too high. but not bad at all.I would say the biggest drawback is that the voice dial feature seems to be dependent on how your phone's voice dial works - the unit cannot store numbers and names for you. since this is not one of my phone's features it does not work on the headset either. this is not a problem for me since the main number I call from the car is my home - once I've called it once all I have to do is hold down the button and it redials immediately. this is a great feature to me, the ability to just redial the last number the phone called. no need to even locate the phone. any other numbers must be dialed from the phone but the speeddial on the phone handles this fine. I can get out the phone, hold down 1 and dial #1 on the speed dial and the unit takes care of the rest. at this price range I was not expecting voice calling so it doesn't bother me that it doesn't work. It appears that if the phone could do voice dialing it would work for you to say,
