Giveaway: 2x Motorola ROADSTER 2 Bluetooth handsfrees
Motorola and PhoneArena are giving the thumbs up to responsible driving with a giveaway that can get you a brand new Motorola ROADSTER 2 Bluetooth handsfree speakerphone - a must-have accessory for every self-respecting automobile! OK, maybe not a must-have, but it sure will come in handy when the President or some other important person calls you while you're on your way to the gym. And you can't reject a call from the President, can you?

Seriously, guys (and gals), our society has to start taking all this talk about accidents on the road caused by careless driving more... seriously. As a matter of fact, all of us here at PhoneArena are very strict drivers, and we don't hesitate to use the latest technology in order to improve our driving experience. For example, when we get behind the wheel, the first thing we do is to put our Android or iPhone on the car mount, play the latest episode of our favorite show that we couldn't catch last evening, and then we're ready to set off... Anyways, for those of us who want to reach their destination alive, it's best to use a Bluetooth handsfree like the ROADSTER 2, which we actually quite liked when we tested it for our review.

OK, we guess you now want to know what you have to do to have a chance to win one, right? We're keeping it extremely simple - just answer the following question with a comment posted below:

  • Do you have a habit of using your cell phone when behind the wheel?

Just post your answer as a comment for a chance to win one of two Motorola ROADSTER 2 handsfrees. The winners will be announced next Thursday and will be contacted via the email address they used to register on PhoneArena. 

*update June 28* - we have drawn the lucky winners. congratulations to "charlesmont" and "mnp188" - please check your emails for details

And by the way, if you're looking to purchase a Bluetooth accessory from Moto's site, use can use the promo code "THUMBSUP" without the quotes, for a sweet 20% discount.

Occasionally...but when you are from South Dakota there's usually not too much around ;)

YES!!! I do have a habit of using my cell behind the wheel. I use a bluetooth earpiece occasionally, but usually just speakerphone on my phone.

yes but I prefer using Bluetooth to speakerphone as the quality for both users is usually better than trying to use speakerphone.

well i just got my own car and of course i bought a Car Dock to go in it for my Razr and i'll use it for Navigation and playing Music on Spotify (which means i have to keep the dock in portrait orientation since Spotify is the only app i use in the car that doesn't support it. >>) oh and i'll also use it for an app Moto has for remembering where your car is by "tagging" the location of the vehicle when you undock it, it'll even take a picture if you want it to and you can type a memo in the app to help you remember further, really useful app if you live in FL. yeah, i'd love to have a Roadster 2 to go with this. it'd be so helpful. o.o

Nope nope, I'm a responsible driver. Yep, I don't text and drive too. You betcha. *looks around nervously* Sooooooo, did I win? Okay, I pick up my cell phone to talk while driving but only when there's little to no traffic on the roads. Most cases I pull over if I know it's going to be a long phone call.

For some reason I wait to make calls until I get into the car! Too busy to do it elsewhere.. This is bad.

Yes. But always with a headset. Would be nice for a wireless solution.

Yes, but I test phones for a living.

I use the phone behind the wheel occasionally, but limit any texting to stoplights and parking lots.

I do talk on my cell phone while driving. I do use a bluetooth earpiece. However, people say that I am not clear when speaking with it. I definitely need to upgrade and this would be a great prize for me.

All the time. I have never found a Bluetooth that I really liked until I bought one for my father that is hard of hearing. He uses this one through his car speakers and now he can hear everything that is said. I would live to have this for myself and give the other to my mom.

No. I try never to use my phone while driving. And the rare times I do, I use a bluetooth headset. This unit would be far better, if I had one.

No, most of the time I don't answer when I am driving. But IF I need to, I use Vlingo app so that I am hands free. However, the Roadster 2 would be a great addition to when using Vlingo with Bluetooth! .. :)

Use the phone all the time when driving on speaker.

I always make calls while driving. It saves me time when I am not driving.

I use the speaker on the phone, they can hear me but I need to close the windows to hear them.


Posts: 1; Member since: Jun 21, 2012

Yes, especially right after work using my earphones. Their's just something about calling home and hearing that sweet little voice say "Hi daddy". It keeps you sane after a long day.

no, I'm not that important.

I do, but I use the program Vlingo which allows me to go hands free.

Yes I use my mobile phone when behind the wheel all the time. My problem isn't talking, it's everything else. Like posting this comment for instance.

I've been through 3 bluetooth devices in 5 years. I keep wearing them out. Would love a chance to try one of these out and become a Motorola fan!

I do have a BT headset, but at red lights i do shoot out a text here and there. The Motorola voice text would be great for me.

On side streets, yes. I try not to when on the interstate, but I have to admit that I have still done so occasionally.
