Since my car is equipped with a factory hand's free bluetooth system I did not test this in the vehicle. Instead I am using this to wirelessly stream music to a home stereo system.

When my review sample arrived I immediately replaced an aging Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver that I had been using for the past three years with this receiver. The difference in the quality of my streamed music was immediately apparent. The sound quality now is like replacing my entire stereo instead of the bluetooth receiver.

More importantly, the problems I had with signal quality and distance with the Belkin were eliminated. Despite the fact that bluetooth works best with the transmitting and receiving units are within line of sight I can walk into a room at the opposite end of my 2400 square foot house and still stream a clear, strong signal to the stereo.

I tested the ability to connect two phones to this receiver for review purposes and it works as claimed. However, I doubt if I will use that feature since I am alone most of the time and this is set up in my house instead of my car. Still, it's a pretty advanced feature that I have not seen on any other received I have used or tested.

Among the phones with which I have tested this are a Samsung Galaxy Note II and 3, an iPhone 4S and an iPad, and an iPhone 5S. It worked perfectly with all of those devices, and especially the iPhone 5S that did not play well with the Belkin that this received replaced.

This ships as a complete kit. It includes a charging cable (albeit a relatively short one), a 3.5mm cable with male connectors on each end, and a 3.5mm female to dual 1/4 inch male RCA jack cable. So out of the box you can connect this to practically any car sound system, home stereo receiver or powered speaker.

I've had this for about a month now but not yet used it extensively. So far it has performed well connecting an Iphone 4 to the car stereo and even a domestic radio. Audio quality for music seems good, connecting to the iPhone 4 seems very robust (the instructions do say that if the unit goes into deep sleep you may occasionally have to cycle the unit off & on again). Connects to the iPhone via bluetooth and the car radio via a 3.5mm audio jack. The unit is fairly unobtrusive at about 5cm diameter and 2.5 cm deep although you will have a couple of cables on display if plugging in to the aux power socket.

One glitch, audio was stuttering at one point so I have dropped it one star. However a reboot of the Iphone seemed to cure the problem so it might be an Iphone glitch. I will update this review when I have used the Avantree more extensively.

Now for the interesting bit! Iphone 5 users are up in arms that they are having trouble connecting to their cars via bluetooth. This is probably because Apple are using the latest Bluetooth 4.0 specification in the iPhone 5 which may be causing compatibility issues with the typically Bluetooth 2 as fitted to most car equipment. According to the specs the Avantree is one of the very few accessories to use the latest Bluetooth 4.0 spec, Iphone 5 users may be in with a fighting chance here!

This review is based on a sample item sent to me by Avantree in order to make an unbiased
review about the product.

Avantree Cara Bluetooth Stereo In-Car Handsfree Kit

Avantree Cara II is an updated bluetooth receiver with APTX codec to be used as mobile phone Handsfree Kit, or
with an audio amplifier to stream sound music.

The device is very small, well assembled and very robust.

The sound quality is astounding !

The use with mobile phones is easy and straight, the sound is very clear and the microphone
has good quality sound capture.

Can be used simultaneously with two mobile phones.

It can also be used with any sound amplifier to play streamed music.

However, the main goal of this device, is to be used inside automobiles to make and receive hands free calls.

Just only a small problem...

Since before 2010 nearly all standard car models, are fitted with bluetooth as a standard equipment,
So, one of the device main objectives, only remains util and usable only for old car models owners.

If the device had built in a small speaker, could be also used has a desktop hands free speakerphone,
which would add more value to device.

If your main objective is to only stream sound music, then have a look on Avantree Saturn Pro, Bluetooth receiver and transmitter.

Overall, Avantree Cara II is a very good device that meets high quality standards on it's main objectives.

Below is my own classification table on this device:

(Classification table: from 1 to 10 points, with 0.5 steps, (Highest = Better))

- Sound Quality - 8
- Bluetooth Range - 7
- Power Autonomy - 7
- Design - 8
- Construction & Robustness - 8
- Features - 8
- Overall - 7.5

Size: Cara II (Upgraded Version)
The Avantree Cara II is a nice little hands free kit.

In the box you get

Avantree Cara II
2.1A dual USB car charger
Magnetic base
Micro USB Charge Cable
AUX 3.5mm audio cable
AUX 3.5mm audio extension cable

The well written manual is very straight forward and in a few minutes I installed the Cara II on to the dashboard of my car using the self adhesive magnetic base and connected the aux cable to my car stereo,

I then paired the device to my Windows Phone which was simple and straightforward.

Although my principle use for the device is hand free communication, it also allows me to stream music from my phone.

Testing the music side, I was extremely please with the results, sound quality was excellent.

The hands free operation was equally as good, as I travel a lot for work, and therefore a hands free phone is an essential tool.

The sound quality was very good even at motor way speeds, and none of my customers who I called had issues hearing me or commented that the line was terrible.

The unit is battery operated, although in practice I have the Cara II plugged into the supplied cigarette charger adaptor at all times, that said Avantree suggest that the device is good for 8 hours of music or 10 hours Talk time.

I have also used this device on my desk with a small speaker for hands free conversation and again the device has worked really well.

This Device with its minuscule dimensions pack quite a punch, recommended
