19 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The Motorola Roadster Bluetooth car kit has great advertised features such as MotoSpeak, streaming music through the FM stereo and answering or rejecting calls with voice commands. While these features are fantastic, their functionality depends 100 percent upon the functionality of your mobile phone. The number one advertised feature, MotoSpeak, is actually an application specifically designed only for BlackBerry 4.5+ devices and Android 2.1 or above.
  • Pros: The dedicated music buttons on the front of the device are great.
  • Cons: Phone compatibility with the Roadster is very limited.

  • Excerpt: The Motorola 89556N Roadster 2 Bluetooth car kit is touted as "the ultimate car kit" and that description is no exaggeration. This sleek communication device offers a generous set of features, provides outstanding compatibility with smartphones and mobile phones alike and is highly user-friendly. Its sleek and modern design also looks great. This Bluetooth car kit easily wins our TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award.
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Need your hands free in the car? The Motorola Roadster 2 is a full-featured, Bluetooth speakerphone that delivers on both performance and ease-of-use.
  • Pros: Clear sound quality. Gets quite loud. Easy to control. Useful FM transmitter broadcasts calls, music, and apps to your car stereo speakers.
  • Cons: Transmissions through the mic, while understandable, still sound like they're from a car. No iPhone version of companion MotoSpeak app.

Motorola Roadster Review

21 March 2011
  • 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
