Jabra FREEWAY Car Kit (In-car BT speakerphone) : User Review
Picked up the Jabra Freeway Handsfree Car Kit (Jabra) two days ago from Infibeam.com (Jabra JBRA2018 0GB Price India, Jabra JBRA2018 Review, Jabra Accessories India - Infibeam.com).
Surprising buying experience: I landed up at Gaffar Market in Karol Bagh, depending on a couple of shopkeepers I knew to supply genuine mobile phones & accessories, in the hope of buying the Jabra Freeway for a price lower than that quoted on the net. Could ultimately locate just one shop with this in stock, and the asking price was Rs.7000. I showed him the Infibeam price, and his response was, Phir aap wahin se le lo; hamara toh aath so ka margin hi nahin hain (Suggest you buy from them (Infibeam); we don't even have a profit margin of Rs.800). This is contrary to my previous experiences of buying mobile phones from this market, when the prices have been consistently cheaper than the prices I have got through various websites.
The buying experience from Infibeam was excellent (I am a first-time buyer at this site) - time taken was 36 hours from placing order to the time of delivery, though the promised time was 7-10 days. Cash paid on delivery.
The instrument comes with a 5V 700mA output car charger and cable (USB-micro USB, similar to the x10i and Blackberry charger/data cables) in the box - since my wall charger (220V) is rated for 5V 750mA output, both the car charger and wall charger work fine for both the Freeway and my phone. Great - no need to carry around 2 chargers!
Yet to explore the full potential of the little instrument, but on a preliminary try-out, I tested out the following features:
Jabra FREEWAY Bluetooth® in-car speakerphone - crystal clear hands-free calls and music in the car - YouTube
Jabra Freeway Bluetooth Car Kit - YouTube
Jabra FREEWAY sound quality demonstration (Part 1: virtual surround) // VR-Zone.com - YouTube
Jabra Freeway BT and FM Transmitter - YouTube
All in all, I am totally smitten by this toy!
