Love it. Already had 2 of the cords to plug it into my aux port in my car, so that was no problem. Keeps me from having to disconnect and reconnect my cell when exiting the car. I liked it so much, I bought 2 more (3 in total), one more to keep in my purse for my earbuds and one for a friend. Thanks Groupon. Thanks for keeping this survey brief and to the point! It was briefer than my comment! LOL

I cannot get this thing to work with my 2011 Audi Q5. I know my vehicle does not have Audi MMI which is needed to connect to Bluetooth or something like that - I though I would chance this but no such luck. So yet another device I wasted $$ on that will not work for me - I just don't get why Audi was so far behind the Bluetooth technology wave? Jeesh.
Had for awhile now. The Smartbean works good in the car, the mic is a little touchy, but overall it works well for music streaming. It works really well at home streaming from our laptops to our home theater system. Now that they include the adapter with the Smartbean, its super easy to connect it to almost any device for the price.
I had bought this last time the deal was available. I use it on my 2009 Lexus, which does not have a bluetooth streaming or a USB adapter. I use it my cassette aux cable, and it works like a charm. You just have to start turn it on manually everytime you start the car. Other than that, it is pairs instantaneously. Has a good battery life. I love it so far
I really loved it for the first month, but I now realize when the battery is low it states "Battery Low" every 30 seconds, interrupting my music. I know the battery is low, now stop interrupting my song.
If you ever wanted or needed bluetooth then this is the gadget for you. It works excellent with my Samsung Note 3 and in my 2012 GMC Yukon XL. I would recommend this product to anyone. In fact I bought 3. One for each vehicle and for use in my home. I plan to give some as gifts for friends that need bluetooth in their vehicles!!
The product works well, but I still need to use an adapter cord frm the AUX port to the unit. I am sure that there is some type of port-to-port adaptor that you could buy, but I had presumed that it would have been included as pictured.
Nice product. Easy to use right out of the box. I notice that sometimes when I'm using it to play music in the car it sounds almost like it skips an instant of sound once in a while. Otherwise, real good.
You are able to play music through this, but iI was unable to take phone calls. However, I was able to make calls out, but could not hear anyone through the stereo system - only through my phone.
Having to pair the device every time you enter the car kinda defeats the purpose. It's easier to just plug the phone in the Audio input and be done with it.
