Product works as expected. Sound is not the best, but acceptable. Supplied charger is not standard, why not just use the existing usb port? Poor manual. Needs to explain more, such as the purpose of the switch on the side that is not shown at all in the manual. Says point to satellite, but does not tell you how to locate satellite! App should have satellite location (bearing and angle above horizon) from current location, as well as larger real time signal strength meter to guide setting up. Connect via Bluetooth would be a nice option to have also.
simple and easy to use
Positive experience. Tested ok and worked when nothing else could connect. Tried to use the wrong app, but advisor on the phone corrected that. User instructions are a bit concise. Car kit helps enormously with connection.
