5.0 out of 5 stars BTC450 18 Aug. 2013
By Dan
Verified Purchase
I purchased the btc450 for two reasons: 1. It would only work through the cigarette lighter. This would save the effort of charging it. 2. It had aptX which my friend said was better than a2dp, apparently my phone supports it (Galaxy S3).

The fact it had a hands free kits didn't bother me as there is one already in my car. Android devices allow you to choose what device you link up to. So I had the music to the btu450 and the calls to the car. I did test the hands free and the caller said it sounded much better than my car one. So I will be using it for both. Excellent.

The sound quality is very good indeed. Clear at all frequencies. I did hear noise through it though. This is not the fault of the btc450 but of the car (Mazda 6). I tried it in another car and there was no noise. It apparently comes from having the ground for the cigarette lighter and car stereo in different places causing ground loops. I purchased a kensington noise reducing cable (ground loop isolator) that Mr Sundareshawar recommended in his review along with the 3.5 female to female coupler. This worked excellently. No more strange noises.

To test to see if you will get this issue: charge your phone with the 12V socket you would use and plug your phone into the aux through the headphones. Put your stereo on aux, if there is noise coming though with no music you will most likely need the cable. Make sure the volume is not 0 as some stereos will cut the connection so you won't hear anything.

The usability when connected is excellent. The middle button connects to S Voice (a feature on Samsung mobiles) this allows you to ring people by saying the name in the phone book. It also works with my wife's siri Button on her iPhone.

I placed mine on the dash where the stereo is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality and easy to set up 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase
Can't fault this product. It was really easy to set up and the sound quality from my iphone to my car speakers is as good as connecting it via a cable. It plays music from my iPhone library or straight from the spotify app. I can also make and receive phone calls which are clear for both the caller and receiver. When the call is finished it starts playing the music again. Not all bluetooth products allow you to both make calls and play music but this one does. My Tom Tom sat nav app on the iPhone also plays over bluetooth to the car speakers. It also works whilst charging and the iPhone pairs automatically as soon as you turn on the ignition so you can almost forget it is there. I have a separate charger for my phone for long journeys but it will work if your phone is on charge or not.

I spent a long time looking at suitable products and this is perfect and great value for money. It just proves you don't have to spend a fortune.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, but only in price. 6 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase
I never usually review products but I was extremely impressed with this one. I own a BMW 3 series coupe. I wanted to connect my music wirelessly because I hate how scruffy wires all over the place look. I took a leap of faith going by previous reviews, but looking at the price I wasn't holding my breath.

This product turned out to be excellent. To sync it with my phone could not be more simple. Plug device in, search for it via bluetooth on your phone and conect. Not only does it sync with my itunes it also plays spotify. From the device you are able to skip tracks, pause, rewind and fast forward (and yes, this includes spotify). This means once you press play, you have no need to touch your phone again.

My phone calls come through perfect. The only time I notice any distortion is when I turn my cars volume to max and then it's noticelable, but quite frankly, this never happens. I have now stopped using my bmw bluetooth prep in favour for this. I also love that the cigarette usb port. It means I can stick a charger in when the batteries running low without hassle.

I think i've only ever written one review (which was negative) but this product is one that I beleive deserves it. If you want to spend little money but gain a top of the range product, this is the one for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase
Ditched the other similar looking one with the blue ring out of sheer frustration, for this.

There's no contest. Music and calls perfect, no interference, callers can hear me at motorway speeds, and auto-pairing when getting in the car - wow!
Easy install and initial pairing to iPhone. Always charged, and much, much better A2DP streaming quality. Tiny non-distracting, infrequently flashing light, dedicated music fwd/bwd buttons.
Delighted to have made the switch to this Kinivo.

Oh, and once more...auto-pairing. Very impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 5 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase
I had a similar car kit by another manufacturer before this one and it didn't always connect to my phone properly, but this one has been spot on. I've had this one for a couple of months and so far I can't really fault it. The main button is easy to find and press (unlike the other one I tried), and I like the fact that it has the small forward and back buttons on the top for skipping music tracks. The cables are nice and long so it should be easy to install in any car. The cigarette lighter plug thingy has a USB port on it, so you can charge your phone in the car too, which is nice.

When you get in the car and turn on the ignition, this car kit will automatically connect to your phone, which is handy. I have a Nexus 4 with Tasker installed, so after playing around for a bit I've got my phone set up to play music once it connects to this car kit. So basically I can start the car, and a few seconds later the music on my phone will start playing through my car speakers automatically. Can't get any easier than that really!

There's also an app called Bluetooth Launch which will let you access Google Now by holding the big button on the car kit for a couple of seconds, which is pretty handy too.

I've only tried using the car kit to talk on the phone a couple of times so I can't comment too much on that, but it seemed to be nice and clear for both me and the person the couple of times I used it.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as it says on the packet.
Arrived earlier than advised. Really easy to install as per the instructions. Mic/control unit is discreet and the cable is a good length, enabling you to hide it behind car trim.
