4.0 out of 5 stars Solid performance, works well with the new Motorola Razr, 30 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Plantronics K100 Visor Mounted Bluetooth In Car Speaker Phone (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Was a bit skeptical after reading some of the other reviews but this is a solid performer! The dual mics work exceptionally well for the person driving, but by their very nature (as they're highly directional) other passengers in the car won't come through as loudly (to be expected)

The FM transmitter feature doesn't work very well at all.. but that's largely down to the fact that there are very few empty frequencies where we are (Greater London) so again, not surprised.. and of course, it may work better for other people :)

What does work well though is the call quality and the fact that it integrates very well with Android's built in voice dialling features (more specifically, Motorola Android phones come with built in "Nuance" voice dialling features over and above what you may get in Android from other handset manufacturers). Having said that, for Android phones there is an option to set which app a double tap of the "home" button launches, so you should all be able to set it to activate Google's own "Voice Actions" if you don't have Nuance..

The Plantronics also has audible voice prompts which are more helpful than I initially thought. It's quite handy to be told when the unit is being turned off, making/dropping bluetooth connection, terminating call etc. saves you from having to look for a status light whilst your driving... You also get the option to "mute" the status light, if its blinking is distracting you (a nice touch)

One (minor) criticism, is that there's a very quiet beep that tells you you've held the "dial" button long enough to make a voice dialled call... it needs to be louder as its not loud enough when driving at any speed.. if you hold the "dial" button for too long, you turn the unit off.. Other than that, a great unit and recommended for the price - especially given all of the other alternatives out there.. not all bluetooth units are created equal
