    Finally, received my Jabra Cruiser 2 today. Did some testing while at home...very impressive device. Sound is clear and sharp, here's some basic feature:

    • Superior sound for hands-free calls in the car
    • Multiuse™ - connect to 2 Bluetooth® devices simultaneously
    • Voice Guidance – Caller ID, battery status, set-up and more
    • Dual microphone technology for excellent sound
    • No installation needed – just clip it onto the sun visor
    • Connect it to your car radio with the FM transmitter and transmit your music and calls to your car stereo (A2DP)
    • Up to 14 hours talk time and up to 20 days standby time

    My component speakers and rear JBL's oval speaker was not able to extract the best out of it. I was missing the sound I was looking for. So after a long debate with myself. I finally got over my emotion of not removing the original head unit from my car.

    Well, the head unit with BT was not mandatory in my options now so I decided upon Pioneer head unit which has USB/AUX functionality. I also got it fitted Amp + SW.
    So here's the list of product installed in my car.

    • Pioneer DEH-4350UB

    • JBL GT5-S396 (Parcel Tray)

    • JBL GT5-S204 (Rear Door)

    • Blaupunkt Amp GTA 4 - Special Edition 2011 (760W)

    • Blaupunkt GTt 1200 SC Tube Subwoofer Speaker (700W)

    Though, the SubWoofer was a BIG NO NO in my wish list. But I couldn't resist the when I heard the sound while taking a demo of it. 700W woofer is more than enough to my ears... so I didn't even looked for most wanted - JBL's 1100W SW.

    Nice set-up now.
    Somehow I feel you spoiled the looks, but I am sure better music is more important than looks.

    I am more interested in Jabra Cruiser 2, looks useful.
    What is the cost, and how did you buy?

    I agree with you Ravi...and that's the debate I was having with myself since long. I was getting irritated while changing song's, album, settings etc...specially while driving. And above all the the sound was not that I wanted even after changing the set's of speakers. I have heard HUGE HUGE difference after having Pioneer on-board even before installing Amp. And now after Amp and Sub-woofer, it is just rocking and exactly the way I wanted.

    Regarding Cruiser 2, this is the best device one could have on our GP's which are not Emotion Pack. I ordered it on e-bay.in for Rs 5K. It can pair two phones at a time along with address book. I personally wanted separate Bluetooth device so I could carry it even my other car's as well. There is one more edition of Cruiser which comes for Rs 3500 (approx) check this out: http://www.teamfiat.co.in/forum/sho...00-bluetooth-car-speakerphone&highlight=jabra.

    If we changed HU.
    Then we will miss features of Steering Mounted Audio Controls & Blue & Me. Isn't it ?

    Yes, that's for Emotion pack owner. But not for Emotion and lower end models.
