I bought a Chatterbox from some knucklehead outfit in California that (it turns out) also sells martial arts equipment
. My primary reason for getting it was so I could use my cell phone (receive calls & talk, never dial out...) while on long trips. The Chatterbox worked fine with a CD player, and for intercom, but the supposed cell phone integration was worthless. After screwing around with their tech support
, buying additional/replacement cables, and even swapping the entire unit with the factory, I ended up returning the whole thing.
The caveat is that there are only specific phones that will work correctly. They told me mine WOULD work before I purchased it. No dice. In addition, with all of the return hassles, I ended up being charged multiple times for a product that I had returned, so I had to challenge the charge on my credit card, then some *&^%!## in their A/R department called me more than once to give me a load of &*^%!
Why doesn't BMW (or anyone else!) make a better line of integrated products that actually work! I've seen these exotic European products that look like they have 50 wires coming out of them
Anyone have recommendations for something that will work for a cell phone first and foremost, then audio (CD), GPS, and intercom?
