I always keep my car's sunvisors "flipped over" the sun-blocking position, so that they're touching the windshield. Of course this depends a lot on the car, the windshield needs to be in a steep angle, which it isn't in older cars or any car with more "boxy" features. But I figure that this product was actually meant to be used like this in new cars, always on the "wrong side", at least for me that would be the best way in my car. Just my two cents ;)
Ah let me correct myself, always on the RIGHT side, I meant of course.
This could prove a good alternative for those of us who don't want too look 'secret service'in our cars and it has the advantage over in - built car systems in that you can upgrade your phone without needing to spend 𧷤 getting the car kit also into synch.I like the idea that contacts are uploaded to the device and wonder if the reverse is possible, ie new phone and even different operating system, can you use it to transfer previously WM contact info straight to a Nokia/Symbian phone ?WARNING! SOUR GRAPES POINT COMING UP.One major problem still, is that Bluetooth (while on the go) is still rubbish, or in more technically restrained language, not there yet, something clearly not understood by THE LAW, I have been imformed that transgression now merits six points, but have not verified this.Until call quality gets to "excellent" or they repeal the law, I will continue to ignore calls while I am driving and get back to people later, when there is more chance of an understood conversation, not a dangerously distracting and frustrating one.
Having just shifted from a BMW 3 with built-in bluetooth to a Ford with no bluetooth option (shame on you Ford), I got one of these. It's ok, but doesn't really compare with a built-in system like the BMW. For starters, you have to remember to turn it on and turn it off. Secondly, it has to be charged up about once a week. Next, it doesn't auto-mute the stereo system when a call comes in. And lastly, the quality doesn't compare. It works and it is useable and it's better than a headset but just barely. Oh, one good thing: it is actually a pretty good speakerphone if you take it inside and put it on the table. Oh, and one more good thing: you can take it with you when you travel. One funny thing: I put it in my checked luggage on a recent flight and somehow it got powered on in my suitcase. When I got in the plane my iPhone indicated that I was connected to the speakerphone. It was reassuring to know that my luggage was on the plane ;-)
