Summary: Overall there is good integration with the iPhone, but there are a few rough spots. Works great as a dock that charges, and routes music to the car speaker. The bluetooth is sometimes a bit flaky when connecting, and the audio quality is okay, but not great. The unit defaults the radio to on when starting the car, which is extremely annoying if the volume is set high since the moment you start the car the radio starts blasting away.
Conclusion: Oxygen Audio oCar in my 2010 Honda Insight professionally installed. Docking system: Pros: perfect for horizontal and landscape mode. Cons: Need to take out any case or cover unless it's thin enough. Ocar Apps: Pros: Radio signals are clear Cons: Need to turn off radio app to listen to itunes or pandora. HandsFree: Pros: Obviously clear since hooked in with the speakers and the external mic helps too.

Conclusion: The unit is nice. That is to say it works as you imagine it would. That is, until you get your hands on it... The iPhone dock is TERRIBLY designed. I mean, just terrible. It's a two-handed job to get it in and out of the dock. You have to precisely align not only the dock connector at the bottom, but also a little piece of plastic that aligns with the headphone jack. And it's not like you can just drop it in against the back wall and it will just align and drop in.
Minimal with good sound and design. Poor apps and phone calls

Summary: Sound quality is quite good. Design is minimal and simple to use. I like using the phone interface over other radio interfaces and also like that I can use any app to play through the speakers. The software (app) UI is terrible but once I setup my radio stations and sound settings once, I haven't had to go back to it. If you like to "play" with the radio stations, you might hate it. One more 'con' is phone calls are not the best experience.
Summary: Just got the unit installed, I don't like to do it myself. I installed the easy apps while i was waiting. The drive home was perfect The tuner is very easy to use and it played while i was using my maps just fine I haven't paired it yet with blue tooth so im not sure what will happen after i pair it I was disappointed when i made a phone call that i didn't hear the person through the car speakers only the phone speakers (this might change after i pair it with the blue...

Summary: It won't fit in a BMW X3, Z4 or M3... Why in the world would you make something that won't fit????? Makes no sense. The face plate is too big... I threw it out the friggin' window. Flimsy and cheap spring loaded swivel. My phone case won't fit in it anyways... Pissed! Wasted $$! Don't buy!
Summary: I got this installed in my car recently ( my previous aftermarket kenwood got stolen from Great America ACE parking lot in Santa Clara CA ). Works great with my iphone 4. Here are things I liked: 1. It has an iphone tuner app. that actually tunes the radio unit that comes with this kit. (this ensured that I don't depend only upon streaming radio apps.) 2. The blue tooth works well once I paired my phone to the device. 3.
