I would definitely look at the Parrot devices. They have several different options to pick from. There's a ton of YouTube videos out there you can look at.
I've never messed with one, but after seeing one at CarToys yesterday, I've really started researching them. I'm surprised that I just have come across many discussions about them on these Jeep forums (yet).
Anyway, of all the options I've seen, Parrot seems to be the best option without buying a new head unit.

Someone else may have a more positive experience than me.

|sfgnspd21||THanks to all...I guess I should have clarified before my spanking... I was looking for something that went through the stereo so I'd have the sound going through the speakers. As for the ear piece, I'd prefer to stay away from those only because of the perception by my superiors due to my rank. They frown upon the earpieces because they look unprofessional for senior NCOs.|

That way if you are using the phone for music, its cuts off during the call. :-)

I've got the connect module for sale, only needs a dealer to flash it to work and a microphone.
Otherwise I agree with woan, get a jawbone earpiece or a throat mic.

Honestly? One of these:
Most vehicles are really bad for handsfree because of the amount of ambient noise, and the inability to place a microphone next to the mouth. Jeeps are especially bad because of the soft top, the relatively poor sound insulation and the large interior space. Headsets are cheaper, easier to install and easier to replace - you just have to actually turn the radio off yourself.

Best hands free bluetooth device?
Has anyone found a really good hands free Bluetooth device for calls inside of a soft topped Rubicon? My Rube came with the 430N stereo, but no Uconnect? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance,
