    Great for playing music. Not suitable for conference calls

    posted by sanderj on 05/31/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Wow: firmly built device. Plugs in easily into a iPod / iPhone dock. The device immediately plays a ding-dong sound through your speakers, so you knows that part is working. Connecting through Bluetooth is easy (tested with Android, iPad and Blackberry), an...
    Cons:
    It also 'snaps' the microphone from your phone. So apparently it presents itself as a microphone device too, which is not the c...

    works for audio playing, not as phone car kit

    posted by sanderj on 05/31/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    It does not work as a phone car kit: while in a call, the sound did not go to the bluetooth / car stereo

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Solid housing, OK price, works under Linux lsusb ID is: "Bus 002 Device 025: ID 0c45:7401 Microdia". I use it with the file pcsensor.c under Ubuntu Linux, and that works.
