What customers say about "Key Specs"
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.
Motorola Roadster Pro (TZ900) Bluetooth Car Speakerphone
  • The speaker is loud enough to hear over traffic and open windows; the voice commands are followed; it is fairly easy to set up and connect to your phoneS....a pleasure.
  • Connected to bluetooth very quickly and easily.
  • Great buy! Works well and friends say calls come through clearly and sounds better than some factory systems they hear. It is easy to set up and instructions very easy to follow.
  • It paired in seconds and all my voice commands worked with no additional setup. Very pleased with volume and clarity of the audio.
  • The Roadster Pro works very well in my car, a 2005 Miata. Clear voice broadcast from the unit and reportedly clear from the other end, at least as clear as most interior car bluetooth units.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
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.
Motorola Roadster Pro (TZ900) Bluetooth Car Speakerphone
  • On a good note, I love the look of it and it fit on my visor perfectly.
  • It's I little big and it not hard to notice on the visor but, it works great!

What customers say about "Features"
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.
Motorola Roadster Pro (TZ900) Bluetooth Car Speakerphone
  • And, I like the talk time remaining feature and the automatic power off (when leaving the car) and power on (when returning). Lastly, Bluetooth connection to my Galaxy S5 is flawless.
  • Love how easy it was to set up. I'm still learning features and haven't figured out the texting.
  • I own one for each car (3)!! The speaker is loud enough to hear over traffic and open windows; the voice commands are followed
  • Could not use hands free features as stated
  • Missed that it does not have the FM mode
  • Having owned previous roadsters, I assumed this one would have an FM transmitter - I was wrong. I now have two blue tooth speakers in my car, one for the phone and one to play music on my through my radio
