Takeaway: The base is magnetic so I can stick it to my dash where there's metal underneath vs typical suction cup or sticky mounts.

The unit on a whole was smaller than I anticipated, about the size of a tic-tac container. There are only 3 buttons but they allow you to power on, pair, change the volume, skip tracks in a playlist, answer calls, mute, and redial the last phone number. The drawback here is that you have to remember how to do all those things when you want to use them, but it makes the interface a lot simpler allowing the unit to look minimalist, clean, and stylish.

The paired quickly to my phone using bluetooth discovery mode and NFC connection. The connection and sound quality was clear and smooth. I had no problem with stuttering, digital noise or dropped connections when in range of the receiver. Like most bluetooth devices, once paired, the receiver remembers the last device it was paired with. You can store up to two devices in its memory so it will pair automatically when it detects those devices again. You can also pair two devices with the unit at the same time which is interesting. Not sure how useful that is since only one person can stream audio at the same time, but I guess it'll make for some interesting playlist battles. I appreciate the fact that the power adapter that came with it has two USB ports, so that you can charge your phone at the same time the receiver is operating.

The main drawback to this product is that with older cars, you probably won't have an audio-in AUX jack, so you cannot use this product... at least not in your car. However, since the USB cable can be plugged into any standard 1000 mAh USB power adapter, you could still use this as a bluetooth receiver with any speaker system that DOES have an audio-in jack or combine it with an appropriate adapter.
