Fundimentally flawed for some phones
on 4 September 2008
After losing my old built in car kit by getting a new car, and finding that the head unit was so new that an adapter was not available yet, I needed a hands free system to tide me over. Read so many positive reviews for this system, both here and in the states. One review in the states positively gushed. Only saw 1 bad review over the sound output being to low so confidently bought a nice new one.
1- So easy to pair with a phone, child's play.
2 - Really slim and intrusive.
3 - Works with voice recognition on the phone. Just press the cover for a second and it clearly beeps, you just say the name and away you go.
BAD POINTS :
Now, when you use the voice recognition, the loudness of the beep to let you know to talk is very loud and very clear. So it is somewhat of a surprise to find the volume level of the caller is basically impossible to hear unless your stationary. It really is ultra low. I do think that some phones do not work well with the system. Unfortunately you cannot find out until you buy it. All I know is that with a Nokia 6233, the volume of the kit makes it useless.
As it is obviously not the kits fault I will not give it 1 star, but however cannot give it 5 stars as for me it does not work as intended. Will try another type of phone and will follow up the review.
