Jabra Freeway Speakerphone
6 February 2014
Summary: I bought one for my car to work with my LG A341 Flip Cellphone. It shut off nicely when I got out of the car (no need to turn it off), so I could use the cellphone in the house. But it didn't work in the car for voice activated calls, even though my phone is set up for that and I could use it with my older bluetooth. So this speaker didn't work for me, and I don't know if it was defective or that my phone can't take it but Jabra said it should work.
Summary: What a total disaster of design and manufacture this thing is. Something (very cheap) about its design and manufacture quality renders it non-serviceable in cold weather (i.e., most of the winter in Canada). Its purchase cost however is not cheap. The unit repeatedly connected to and disconnected from my cell phone about every 30 seconds. I suspect that a defective motion sensor system plays a key role in all of this.
Summary: This unit works very well, the phone calls are clear as a bell. The controls/setup are quite simple and the FM transmitter is such a welcome addition to our collector car.... no more cables. We don't use the voice commands yet so can't comment on that.
Summary: The build quality is excellent and there are many nice features included. The speaker performs the basic operations just fine and as expected. However, the voice commands capability is just poor - too bad that it wasn't fixed in the last firmware upgrade (v3.3) as it contradicts to the overall quality of the product.
Summary: After using for three months I am very happy with this product. Bought two more for family members for Christmas. I don't play music through it so can't comment on that but for answering and making calls it works very well. The sound is very clear. If I leave the car and need to use the phone immediately, I will turn the unit off so that the unit won't pick up the phone call.
Summary: It's easy to use and seemed like a great idea but the sound quality was inconsistent. It's not really geared to use with an iPhone - just more commands to make a call and did not silence the radio when placing a call as stated. Also, unlike an earpiece, you have to change your source when you leave your car or end your call. Not worth it.
Summary: Bought at Futureshop a couple of months ago. A good product and experiencing few problems or issues with the unit. Pros: Excellent battery life when active and passive in vehicle; connects and disconnects automatically from cellphone; streams music via Bluetooth/FM to vehicles sound system effectively with good sound; the speaker works well as a standalone unit; incoming and outgoing calls clear; no complaints from call recipients.
Summary: Bought this when it was on sale tried it out for about two weeks then returned it [...] specially if you Live in a house this is not going to work for you when you leave the car it will not disconnect from your mobile phone so it will drain your battery and all the calls and text messages will go to this the the phone has to be quiet far from this device to automatically disconnect otherwise you have to manually turn on and off the Bluetooth on your phone every time you...
Summary: Great sound on its own - will play quite loud and clear almost to full volume. Have enjoyed using it as a portable speaker away from home. Not the best FM transmitter but have yet to hear a better one. Manual says it will find a clear FM channel but it just steps one channel with each tap. You have to choose for yourself. Terrible voice commands. Seems to only understand its own category commands. Forget hands-free dialing; seems to pick contacts randomly. Useless.
