bluetooth

Are any of you guys using a bluetooth system that plays through the stereo speakers? I was wondering if you can still hear/the person on the phone hear you when the top is down or if the road noise makes it impossible. I was thinking of getting the bluetooth adaptor for my kenwood HU but might just go with an ear piece. Thanks.

I have had a bluetooth head unit for the past couple of years in my XJ, I bought one of the first Jensen head units. It paired up with my Verizon E815 in 5 seconds, my RAZR in 10 and works well, provided the windows are rolled up

The Jensen has the microphone built into the face plate and on the jeeps, TJ's XJ's and ZJ's the radio is up high so it works out ok for the most part, Sony head units also have the mic built in there. Only the Pioneer and JVC offer a seperate mic that you can mount anywhere which is a better setup. Even with the windows down you can still hear very well, the phone volume is set separately from the tunes volume. Downloading your phone book is dependent on how much your provider has castrated the phones built in features, Verizon castrated their bluetooth feathers quite a bit, they do it to prevent you from being able to do your own ringtones and such so you have to buy from them. I've looked at other providers and kind of a rule of thumb, if they sell ringtones they castrated blutooth for their own gain.
Here is the JVC, has usb too that you can mount where you want, they are cheaper than jvc shows

Or go to www.crutchfield.com, car audio and pick bluetooth, 22 or so choices there. I would not buy a head unit without it now and I don't like those add on BT units. The Blaupunkt Hamburg MP57 looks like a good deal, got USB and a separate microphone too. I've never heard anthing negative about them except they seem to get stolen alot.

I have a Jabra headset, very comfortable and works well with the top up...

Top down I can hear them but they can't hear anything from me if I'm moving at all.

But then again, when the top is down I'm usually enjoying the ride more than I want to talk to anyone...

I have a Pioneer Head Unit that has the optional Blue Tooth Adapter unit.
I mounted the Mic mounted on my visor.
I can drive down the road at 65mph with my window down and still take calls easily.
The people I've talked to say they can hear some wind noise,
but nothing too bad.
