About the Product
The Jabra CRUISER2 Bluetooth in-car speakerphone makes hands-free in-car calls even easier. To start with, its voice gives you simple pairing instructions the first time you turn it on. After that you just put it on your sun-visor and it connects automatically with your mobile phone every time. It will even synchronize with your phonebook, enabling the CRUISER2 to say the names of the contacts in your phonebook when they call.
The new Jabra FREEWAY in-car speakerphone makes handsfree calls sound better than ever – and makes controlling them effortless. It is the first in-car speaker-phone to have a 3-speaker stereo system and virtual surround sound, which makes the audio crisper, clearer and more vibrant than ever before. And with its dual microphone technology, you can say goodbye to unwanted background noise.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Jabra Cruiser 2 Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone
  • Callers could hear my voice loud and clear (at least so far).
  • Ability to play my music collection off my smartphone.
  • Very clear sound - both listening and on the other side, who cant guess I am on speakerphone.
  • Clear voice reception and clear transmission. Haven't heard any complaints from callers. It does connect my phone and iPad so I can play music on the radio.
  • On the FM frequency, I had to turn up the volume significantly to hear the person on the other end of the line.
  • Doesn't connect automatically, so you need to turn it off and on to connect.
Jabra Freeway (100-46000000-02) A2DP
  • The battery lasts for a long time, I think I've only had to charge it like three times in two months.
  • It holds a charge a remarkable amount of time, which is key.
  • This is actually my second one, I think I wore out my previous one after nearly seven years it lived it the car even in the heat of summer. It is by far one of my favorite purchases ever.
  • While not cheap, the Jabbra FREEWAY delivers excellent audio quality for phone calls, which is my primary requirement. I bought it because I have a ten-year old SUbaru that is still very servicable, but wanted a quality bluetooth hands-free setup for my iPhone.
  • While not cheap, the Jabbra FREEWAY delivers excellent audio quality for phone calls, which is my primary requirement.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Jabra Cruiser 2 Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone
  • Form factor: Looks big in pictures but its exactly the same size as iphone (bit thicker thou)
  • Overall it is fairly small and packs a good punch with its speakers.
  • It looks great, small and light, and it feels premium. The back clip is adjustable if you have the reversed type visor.
  • This model clips easily on my visor and is small enough to take down and hide if I am parking for long periods or in very public areas. I
  • Small and light, making it easy to travel with for those rental cars that don't have built in bluetooth.
Jabra Freeway (100-46000000-02) A2DP
  • Nice size -- very small and light, while still feeling sturdily made and good quality.
  • The sound quality of music through the speakers is very good for their size and the size of the unit overall.
  • Size is similar one square and the other longer and narrow but I do like the button placement better on the Roadster as well.
  • The design of the speakerphone is wonderful. Some people might not like it's size, but I have no problem with it.
  • First, don't believe the description. The actual speakerphone (Freeway) is 4" x 4.5", not the 4.56x6.97, which is size of the box it came in.

What customers say about "Features"
Jabra Cruiser 2 Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone
  • The Cruiser announces every function you do, so that is nice, especially when it lets you know that you are paired with your phone, what radio frequency it is using, etc.
  • Connects to my iPhone really easily, voice controls work great, long battery life.
  • Super Strong FM transmitter that syncs easily with iphone and plays music directly on my car radio (Warning: music quality is acceptable but not good, this is Iphone's limitation and not Jabra's).
  • Nice easy to use volume/mute/connection buttons on front.
  • The charger wire would be annoying if used while driving due to the fact that it hangs right next to my gear shifter.
  • Downloads contact list from iphone but will not announce incoming call's contact name (really does not matter to me but Jabra advertised it this way).
Jabra Freeway (100-46000000-02) A2DP
  • Speaker is fairly loud and callers sound very good at a reasonable volume.
  • Music sounds decent as well using only the device speakers.
  • It also has an FM transmitter feature, and the thing is horrendous. I'm aware of the general issues around FM transmitters, and have used a dedicated one from Belkin with good results.
  • What sets this device aside is the FM transmitter built in for calls or music. It's a very cool feature but falls short a bit.
  • The FM broadcast isn't very strong...my older unit sounds twice as good when broadcasting to the radio.
