.. but not make a call. Makes it a gimmick. Even the very cheap ones let you hit the button to call the last dialed number.

If it supports voice recognition, then it should be able to make calls via that, just like any other headset

Even though its cheap anyone knows what the quality is like..last thing u want to do is after a few uses throw it in the boot?

Absolutely appalling... looks like rubbish, who in their right mind would want that hanging out of their cigarette lighter? There's a reason the price has gone down 500%, it's utter ****!

Looks are one thing, three points on 'YOUR' license is another - enjoy your fine when you get it........

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion granted, but I don't expect many will follow your views - sorry. Road side cctv is enough evidence needed to slap you with a fine and points no matter where you are!

There is a better alternative in the form of all bluetooth headsets.

What Rubbish.

These aren't practical for everyone and some people find them uncomfortable or distracting when not being used, so they are not better - its all down to personal taste and what suits the user!

You dont need to wear them all the time. Certainly beats having to mess around with something down by the gearstick every time someone rings you.
There are so many headsets to choose from and if you find one uncomfortable, then theres always another to try.
#23
Sorry but this does look awful, I know other sets are more expensive but I'd rather pay the extra. Unless of course you have the sort of car that this would look good in..........

Granted you don't have to wear them all the time - you just end up fumbling around the dash, or where-ever you stashed it if you've not got it on, then you have to try and put it on - which ever type you use its not always easy with one hand, before you even start your call....... Oh....while driving at the same time!?!?

Lets have a bit of common sense please. The idea of hands free - which ever you use is so that you dont have to fumble around with anything while driving - your likely at best to kill yourself, at worst someone else.

These plug-in units sit in most cars, no futher away than a button on the car radio or heater setting and dont require anyfumbling around as you put it. As I said what people use is down to personal choice not what you think they should use, as it is something you yourself prefer.

scenario 1
you have a headset. you get a phone call. you rummage around your driver side pocket for the headset without having to look down (unless you have a deathwish or something), you find it, put it on your head, press the button and you've answered the call. happily talking away hands free.

scenario 2
you have that thing plugged into your car, you get a call, you have just bought it and therefore have no idea how it works, you look down, press the button, the thing falls out, you pick it up to plug it back in and.... CRASH. you are now dead.
#26
That's not a hands free kit. IT'S A MARTIAN DRONE COME TO SPY ON THE HUMAN RACE BEFORE THEY ATTACK!

Looks like it is straight out of a 60's sci-fi movie - I kinda like it.

[QUOTE=blackrat62]Its a fiver and you don't look like a sad Borg fan, or does anyone think they look cool with a bluetooth headset on??????

I really get amazed at the number of sad plonkers walking about with these bluetooth headsets still attached to their heads. Do they not realise how frigging sad they look?
Just get a car stereo like a Parrot and your life will be transformed, I have one fitted to my 14 year old Pug 306, cost me £500 for the car and £120 for the Parrot bluetooth stereo. No need to make any contact with your mobile phone at all. I also have a Fiat Grande Punto with Blue and Me, also have no need to touch my mobile. So I get really peed off when I see anyone driving with a mobile stuck to one of their lugs. They are obviously just a selfish ****** who gives not a toss for anyone elses safety cos they cannot be a...d to be bothered spending a few quid on a totally hands free system.

Why would you look down in scenario 2, if you wouldn't in scenario 1? Or are these scenarios just a load of biased nads.

Isn't it just as likely you could drop, or fumble around trying to get a headset in your ear?

At the end of the day, if you're serious about being able to use such things in your car, you'd likely have them on / plugged in, at the start of your journey.

Some people are happy with headsets.

Some people aren't - either for comfort, or that "look like a ******"-factor.

Bluetooth speakerphones are nothing new. Some that plug directly into ciggy sockets can be a bit distant or poorly positioned to either hit the button, or for the mic to pick up your voice. At least this one has some positionability.

As to it's image, well from where I'm sat, playing image-one-upmanship comparing this with a bluetooth headset seems a bit, well, special, really.

These are recently reduced at £12.98 at Maplin. Hot on price just alone.

If you don't like the look of it, then by all means, you go and look all cool and sophisticated with a bluetooth headset stuck in your ear... good luck with that.

Guys and ladies,,
Just to let you all know that I work for Modelabs and we developed this product last year and it's not very good at all..
It's cheap coz it's very plastic and hard to use according to our costumer in France.
If you want a decent car kit, try I-qua UFO. You should be able to get for a tenner but the quality and looks is 100% better...

I've seen one in the flesh (on a shelf in Maplin), they're no bigger than plenty of other budget bluetooth speakerphones - the only difference being that they have longer, flexible / angle-poised connection to the ciggy power socket.

But the actual speaker bit is around the same size as plenty of other bluetooth speakerphones. With two notable differences: 1) you can position this one with greater flexibility 2) it's cheap as chips.
