Thumbs up Kinivo Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit

I had to throw this out there in case anyone else is interested. I recently bought a Kinivo BTC450 Bluetooth for my truck. I haven't had much luck with aftermarket bluetooth devices but I gotta say this thing is great. It's very bare bones - no bells and whistles - but what it does, it does well. It attaches to the dash with double-sided tape. Those of you that don't have 4WD have a perfect spot to place it (see my pic). It plugs into the aux input and the 12V power socket. It doesn't have a battery so you don't have to remember to turn it off or charge the battery. It paired in about 2 seconds and once it does your music and phone calls come through the stereo. The sound quality is excellent. It has a small mic on the side and the outgoing sound quality must be decent because my wife hasn't complained! The only buttons are a multi-function button and forward and reverse buttons for music streaming but I've found it easier to control music on the phone. I am really diggin this thing so far. It's well worth the $45 IMO.

I just ordered this from Amazon, where there was a coupon for $15.00 off. In the mail to me for $30.00

Thanks for the review

It has no buttons. Just connects with Bluetooth and hangs up automatically

Came in the mail and I installed almost instantly.

Connects with the phone calls well enough (reset my Samsung driving mode responce to "By your command")

I figure it will work great for music as well once I can get past whatever ID10T error is causing it to not want to play music through the bluetooth.
