5.0 out of 5 stars Superb clarity of calls, easy to use and impressive charge life, 15 Jan 2011
This review is from: Jabra CRUISER2 Bluetooth In Car Speakerphone (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Length:: 3:23 Mins

The Jabra Cruiser 2 is one of many hands-free Bluetooth products brought out by Jabra. The in-car speakerphone allows the user to safely answer and make hands-free calls whilst driving. To set up the speakerphone, the unit needs to first be charged up for just 2 hours (an impressively quick charging time), either via the included USB cable into a PC (or something similar), or plugged into the cigarette lighter of a running car.

Once charged, the device is turned on by a simple flip of a switch and then a voice automatically guides the user through how to link it up with a mobile phone via their Bluetooth capabilities. This literally takes around a minute. Once done, the speakerphone is good to go.

The flexible metal grip on the underside of the speakerphone allows the device to be clipped on to a cars sun-visor (drivers side is recommended). Once attached the unit can be used unconnected for up to 14 hours of talk time, or for 20 days on standby (impressive huh?). However, should you need to charge up the speakerphone in the car then the unit can be plugged into the cigarette lighter and it will begin charging again (although you may need to reposition it away from the sun-visor during charging to avoid getting entangled in the dangling power cord).

The unit has very well positioned (and easy to identify whilst on the move) buttons located on the outward facing-side of the speakerphone. In the centre is the 'answer/end call' button, to the left and right are the volume controls, and in the middle-and-back is the ever so handy 'mute' button. Apart from the radio button and the 'on/off' switch which are both located on the side, that's it!

The volume and clarity of calls on the device is superb. Even in heavy rain, driving on noisy tarmac, or in dense traffic, the clarity of the calls is incredible. Incoming calls ring twice and then the device informs you of the number calling. The speakerphone can also have up to 1,000 contacts transferred and stored on to it, which will then inform the user who is calling before they answer (if your mobile phone has this capability).

The speakerphone can work on voice activation as well as announcing your contacts names as long as your mobile phone has these inbuilt capabilities. The best way to check whether your phone will be able to make full use of the speakerphone is to check the required specs on the Jabra website.

All in all, this is a very easy to use and well designed piece of equipment to make peoples lives just that little bit easier (and possibly safer). The unit is strong, sturdy and discreet, with simple easy to locate operating buttons. The call clarity is nothing short of superb, and when combined with a mobile phone that allows for voice functionality, the speakerphone delivers a completely hands-free experience.

Hi mate, nice review, but you said "FM radio transmitter as well (although most cars have radios in them anyway)." Well it is actually a transmitter that enables you to listen to what is coming out of the receiver via your cars stereo, just tune them to the same channel, and hey presto it works! Hope that helps!

How is this holding up now? I'm looking to replace a headset as the thing hurts my ears but I have a noisy car so the sound quality is crucial.

Hi D.Evans. Well, we've had it now for over a year, and it's still performing just as well as when we first got it. To be honest, my wife uses it more than I do, but she says that she's not noticed any problems over the last year. The battery charge has lasted well, and there's been absolutely no noticable deterioration in the sound. So, we're still very happy with its performance.

However, we don't use it on a daily basis or anything like that, so I can't say how well it would hold up to extensive use.

Hope that helps.

Does anyone know if this can be linked to more than 1 phone, i have an Iphone and a work Blackberry, it would be great if i could link both to this device?

Thanks,
Sarah

Yes you can. Both my wife and I have our phones linked up to the device.

Hope that helps.
