I'm looking for an in-car speakerphone for my iPhone. What one do you use? I'm in the car a considerable amount of time and would like to hear and be heard without road noise.

What's your suggestions?

Are wanting a true speaker or headset type?
I use the plantronics voyager pro plus ( think that's the full name). It's an earpiece style but does work quite well.

I want a true speakerphone. I have a earpiece. It's a drag as I'm in and out 10-times a day. If I forget to turn it off then my phone connects while the car is in the garage and I have to make folks wait while I navigate to turn it off.

Motorola makes one that's auto on/off. Leaning towards that one.

A few years ago I briefly tested a Southwing Bluetooth car kit for a review (I think it was this one) and it worked pretty well. I didn't use it for a long period of time since my car already had Bluetooth built in. I know this is a few years old and may not be all that helpful for you but I at least wanted to point out that you may want to look for a kit that plugs into the cigarette lighter like that. That Southwing kit only worked when the car was running, which would avoid the problem you mentioned about your iPhone connecting when you were outside of the car. And, it avoids any issues with keeping the battery of the Bluetooth kit charged. Though it's not the most attractive set-up, it wasn't nearly as ugly as I was expecting though this may depend on where your cigarette lighter is placed.

A friend of mine has this one. She says the same as you. She loves it. I'm still holding out for the moto. But will research some more.

Thanks for sharing.
