Summary: The Motorola Roadster Bluetooth car kit, if you are the owner of a BlackBerry or Android phone, could be a really great product as it offers the fantastic hands-free MotoSpeak application. If you are not the owner of one of these devices, however, be prepared for only basic Bluetooth functionalities.
Pros: The dedicated music buttons on the front of the device are great.
Cons: Phone compatibility with the Roadster is very limited.
Summary: The versatile and attractive Motorola 89556N Roadster 2 is well suited for professional and personal use. No matter what your destination, this easy to use Bluetooth car kit can help you enjoy a safer and more convenient drive while still managing phone conversations and texts, not to mention relaxing and enjoying some music as you roll along.
Pros: The Motorola 89556N Roadster 2 is extremely easy to use, provides excellent sound quality and lets you hear and send texts using text-to-speech and speech-to-text options.
Cons: There is no USB charger included. Additionally, two useful apps specifically designed for this device are Android-based and therefore not available for iPhone.
Summary: Motorola’s latest foray into the in-car Bluetooth speakerphone doesn’t seem much different from its last, at least not on paper. Replacing the still-great-for-its-age Motorokr T505, the Motorola Roadster still pairs via Bluetooth and still features the FM transmission mode that won us over the first time. So what’s new?
Cons: Picks up too much background noise, No built-in voice control function
