    Thought i would update this

    it is a load of rubbish ... :-^

    Well strictly not true, as a means of a hands free rubbish , the person you are phoning can hear you clearly but when they talk

    they can hear them self speak ( very off putting)

    so in the car you need to turn the volume down, but then you cant hear them

    I feel i have to post another comment on this Gizmo

    As a blue tooth phone link it is CRAP

    but as a way of playing music from a SD card it is actually pretty good

    i have now tested this fully,I put in a 4gb SD card full of music plugged it into the cigarette lighter

    tuned in the radio to it,and off you go

    for this reason it is worth the price

    Will any hands free kit be any good in a convertible with the roof down.... a few years ago I had one that fitted to my visor and I swapped it in and out of Zippy and my runaround. It was fine in the Golf but rubbish in Zippy. I eventually got a Parrot fitted in the Golf and thought about something for Zippy but my other half said, don't waste your money, I can never hear you if the roof is down and it's only just passable with it up.

    So I don't use hands free in Zippy.. :D
