One of the best but could be better.

This was my first purchase through Junglee and I was really worried what if it’s a fake seller, I would neither get the product nor my money. (Question: Is there any protection policy for consumer if conned by a seller?) .
Now to say 24sevenindia is rather good seller and shipped product very quickly. I am still not sure why Junglee.com is not controlling the transaction in same way as ebay.in is handling it. At least I feel safe with ebay in case something goes wrong.
Packaging: Packaging was solid and still easy to open unlike some other products. The package included a warranty card certificate, warning information (a small booklet), quick start guide, car charger, data/charging cable and Freeway Unit.
Data cable is long enough to keep it connected to the charger and move the unit around in the car (which you most probably won’t be doing as the unit will always be hanging on your Visor). The micro usb port is a pretty standard port these days and it helped me charge my phone as well.
Once I turned this device on, the first thing it wanted me to do was pair up the device. It was very easy to pair the device, just went to Bluetooth option in my HTC Desire and selected this from there and it was good to go. After pairing my phone asked permission to share the contacts so that device can speak out name or use voice dialing, it took around 40 -45 seconds to transfer all contacts to device.
First voice command I tried was “Battery” and it told that remaining talk time was 10 hours, still I put it up on charging and almost after 25-30 mins it was completely charged.
Other voice commands like answer, ignore, redial, play also worked most of the times.
While calling speaker is loud and clear. It’s not a boombox and I didn’t expect it to sound like one. So for calls sound is very loud and I had to turn it down a bit. The mic is good even person sitting on backseat can speak and its crisp. Only down side was traffic noise, with windows down, which it picked was audible on other side and created disturbance. I never had that issue with “Plantronics Voyager” which reduced the external noise, may be its because Voyager is in ear and its design helps.
FM transmitter is good option but somehow I didn’t like using it much because of static. I also felt that the sound quality of songs playing in my phone also reduces when I compared FM with Aux cable.
Other good option was that I was able to disable LED blinking in front of me. It really helps on Highway for night driving.
Now I am being Nitpicky: Only negative thing I could think of (other than FM and noise cancellation in traffic) was that the charging port was on right hand side. Its good for countries where steering wheel is on left but for India you have to adjust cable over visor while charging (which you don’t need to do much as Long standby and talk time can go on for almost a month).
