Summary: Would consistently misunderstand and dial a random phone entry. Tried Phone Home multiple times and sometimes it would phone correctly but often it tried to call another entry. Also wouldn't understand "Phone Commands" multiple times. Edit Update: After checking further it may not be totally the devices fault, using an iphone4 it maybe the phone itself [...
WARNING: DO NOT BUY FROM this seller alwayz-on-sale

Summary: Bought this from alwayz-on-sale. WARNING: DO NOT BUY FROM this seller alwayz-on-sale The FM transmitter is junk. Totally weak, completely unusable. I tried all the FAQs, worked with Jabra support in an attempt to not have to return this. Perhaps I had a defective unit? Either way alwayz-on-sale refused to accept the return. So now I am stuck with a 90 dollar piece of junk. Completely worthless for me personally.
Summary: When I am driving I try to speak to the Jabra and it keeps telling me to repeat or can not understand what I said. When I take it off of my visor and speak about 3" from it, it still can not understand. Maybe my southern draw is confusing it.
Summary: I bought this for my Mom for Christmas. In theory, this sounds like a good idea. She is annoyed with, it will only call one person. No matter who she tried to call, it calls the same person. The speak on it is great, but its uselss if it doesnt recogonize anything you say.
Summary: Had this for about 4 months and it started to not respond to any commands. Constantly announces "power off" when it wasn't. Would lose connection to phone all the time. Did all the firmware updates to no avail.
Summary: The description omits that in order to use iPhone features other than making and receiving calls, a third party app has to be obtained that is free the first year and then $3.99 per month thereafter. Other similar products have total interface with the iPhone without doing somethng like this.
Summary: This would be a great Hands-Free speaker, the sound is good. BUT the voice recognition is truly APPALLING! It really is one of the very worst examples of how some companies cannot get the technology right. The amount of times I've had to try and unlock my phone whilst driving because the device called the wrong number. It's incredibly frustrating. ANd it doesn't just call similar sounding names IE "Call Beth" became "Calling Unioncard". Awful, awful, awful.
Summary: We bought two of these units to drive across country in two vehicles and stay in touch. It was a waste of money because most of the time the sound quality was so poor we just talked on the phone when we needed to communicate.
