Motorola Roadster 2 Review

Motorola Roadster 2 Review
Just like before, we’re enamored by the powerful tones emitted by its speaker – enabling us to easily hear callers even with some ambient background noise. Furthermore, it seems like noise cancellation with this model has been improved tremendously as our callers don’t have any qualms this time around trying to comprehend us with the windows in our car opened. Overall, we’re satisfied that the Motorola Roadster 2 has improved its calling quality, which makes a world of a difference in being usable.

Well folks, the fun doesn’t end there as the Roadster 2 packs a wealth of features for a speakerphone. For starters, it packs a built-in FM transmitter that allows is to listen to music on our smartphone through our car’s speakers. Additionally, it works in conjunction with the Motorola Car Finder app for Android to allow us to easily locate our car after parking. Well, the app memorizes our location the moment our handset disconnects from the Roadster 2. Finally, we gain the ultimate hands-free texting experience in hearing our messages being announced by using the MotoSpeak app for Android.


Considering that the Motorola Roadster 2 can be bought through most retail portals for $75, it’s not bad at all when you take into account its wealth of features and improved quality. In the end, if you don’t want to deal with pesky Bluetooth headsets in the car, this might seemingly be the perfect solution for you – since it’s primarily used in the car only.

I like the Roadster 2. Right away, I can use my fine car stereo FM to play navigation (from iPhone), iTunes music (iPhone) and hands-free calls on my iPhone.
Only disappointment is Motorola Car Finder. There is no iPhone App to download for this feature. The Roadster 2 user manual "errata" sheet for this feature is referring only to the Android world, which is 50% at best of the smartphone market.

Not that I could do a better job of reviewing this fine Motorola product but this guy has an annoying voice. It's nasal in tone and considering he is under time constraints, he talks too freaking fast that technical jargon becomes just that...jargon!
