What customers say about "Key Specs"
Jabra Tour Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone
  • This is a great bluetooth speaker for cars that aren't equipped with one.
  • Very long battery life. My conversations are few and brief when I'm driving. The device tells me I have 20 hours worth of talk time before I have to recharge. That's really amazing.
  • Strongly recommended to anyone who needs a Bluetooth speakerphone — or who has a dead car stereo.
  • Super easy to sync with my phone and use the device.
  • This is a great car speakerphone. Pairing could not have been simpler. I did it without looking at the directions, and the Tour found my IPhone quickly.
Motorola Roadster 2 (89556N) Speedy Conversations
  • The battery lasted me all week on a single charge while using it about 1-2 hours every day.
  • I tried to use the built-in speaker since FM was not working well. The built-in speaker tends to work a bit better, but the sound quality itself sounds like a tin can. It almost sounds like its echoing.
  • I really like this hands-free unit. It pairs great with my Windows phone (no giggles please). The windows software will read incoming text messages and generally handles the bluetooth connection well.
  • Once you've synced your phone for the first time, the unit syncs automatically when turned on or when your phone comes in range (most of the time).
  • Over all, I am very pleased. I spend a lot of time in my vehicle making calls and listening to Sirius. This product is much better than the previous BT devices I've used; to include the Himbot HBO1 and LG 750 ear buds.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Jabra Tour Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone
  • It's large & clips nicely on my visor. Right above where I speak.
  • The metal clip for the sun-visor needs to be re-designed, it is too big, I think, and much too stiff. It makes deep marks in my sun-visor's upholstry. Other than the clip it is prefect.
  • A little bigger than expected, but it has to be that size to fit the speaker and buttons that aren't too small to press.
  • Very good quality for the price. Considering the size, the sound is very good.
  • Product size is great, sound is awesome. I will buy one for myself.
Motorola Roadster 2 (89556N) Speedy Conversations
  • The Roadster 2 is very compact and lightweight, but packs a much higher punch in loudness and clarity I did not expect from its size.
  • The size was way smaller than I was expecting for some reason. It is really about the size of a large garage door opener.
  • It is small (about the size of a deck of cards) which is good because my visor mirror isn't in the way of the clip.
  • At first let me say that that thisis product is nowhere as it is pictured. It is about the size of a folded wallet...thank goodness.
  • It's about the size of a cell phone. It fits nicely and securely onto the visor.

What customers say about "Features"
Jabra Tour Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone
  • My favorite feature: It wakes up from sleep mode automatically when I enter the car. No need to switch the device on or off or re-synch every time you get in the car. It's as close to a factory feature in my car as I can imagine.
  • The location services feature has an option to scan for bluetooth devices to aid in determining location.
  • My favorite feature is the auto-off and motion sensitive auto-on. That means that I basically don't need to touch the TOUR, or even remember it's there, when I enter or exit the car.
  • If you disconnect the announcements it disables all talking features. Commands like ‘answer’ or asking for a status won’t work. You’ve effectively told it not to talk any more. iPhone’s Siri or Android commands will still work though.
  • Voice recognition works well - except when trying to call wife at work... hmmm.
Motorola Roadster 2 (89556N) Speedy Conversations
  • The recorded voice tells you the station the device is using (which is typical), but if you hold a volume button down, the unit will automatically scan the FM spectrum until it finds an unused frequency, then announce the channel.
  • Launching Phone Commands! This was by far the most annoying part of the Jabra that worked very poorly.
  • The FM tuning feature on both seem to work about the same, which is to say, not greatest. I'm in the Chicago area and it's hard to find blank frequencies that work consistently.
  • The FM transmitter feature, LOVE! I can use the car speakers to hear my calls OR I normally use it to play music from apps on my phone.
  • There are a lot of great features that have been commented on by others, like auto locating free radio bands, if you use the FM transmitter.
