It took less than two minutes to shift the "pre-Bluetooth" sedan from being grandma's car into something the granddaughter could drive while staying connected to her social life. The Roadster 2 by Motorola provides hands-free calling and connects to all the music on her smartphone – all while keeping her eyes on the road.
After charging the Roadster 2 through the cigarette lighter, the cord is put away and the Roadster 2 is clipped to the sun visor for up to 20 hours of continuous talk time. It features an automatic on/off feature so that as soon as the phone leaves the car, the Roadster 2 shuts off. Open the door and it reconnects to your phone.
Pairing is simple. As soon as the device is activated, an automated voice walks you through the set-up. Calling someone takes a press of a button to access the phone book. When a call comes in, you are either told who from your list is calling or the number of the incoming call. You can say, "Answer", "Ignore", or push the button. The calls (for up to two phones at a time) are surprisingly clear because of the device's noise-reduction feature. Calls and music can be transmitted either through the car kit or through the vehicle's FM receiver and speakers.
