Great car bluetooth kit
17 January 2019
Ordered two of these, one for each of our cars. The unit comes with a magnet on the back, a mostly flat cup that the magnet sticks to with an adhesive sticker on the back for mounting and a vent mount that the unit also sticks to. Already had a magnet mount in one car that the unit sticks to and using the vent mount in the other car with no issues. Also included in the box is a 2x USB port cigarette lighter for the device to be plugged into and to have a spare port for phone charging.
The device itself has a cable coming out of the bottom that splits into a USB cable for power and an AUX cable for audio. There is also a tiny on/off switch on the side that I've never really used. As it is powered via the cigarette lighter, the device turns on and off with the ignition which is handy. It syncs fairly quickly after powering on. On a OnePlus 5 the volume works reasonably well by default but on an iPhone 7 the volume needs to be set to max on the device for sound to come out at standard volume levels and it forgets the volume setting after being powered down, so needs to be reset each time. This is a minor inconvenience that only takes a few seconds by holding down the Up button.
The device also has a microphone in it for voice calls which has worked very well, both on the vent above the steering wheel in one car and mounted near the gear stick in another car. The first few times I asked if people on the other end of calls could hear me properly and I always got a good response and since then have never asked.
I have two phones paired to each device and it seems to work fairly flawlessly, albeit I have only tried using one at a time. Mostly used for Spotify and it does a great job.
The only issue I've had is the 2xUSB charger is a bit fiddly in one of the cars (a Mazda 2), but I have had issues with some other chargers in that car as well. I highly recommend the device, it is fantastic and much more reliable and better quality than the Jabra device I was using previously.
