So everyone I have talked to through the bluetooth phone in the car complains about the background noise. I drive with my windows up but everyone complains that it sounds like I'm driving... does anyone know why this is happening or have ran into the same problem?

My only issue so far has been driving into a 40+ mph headwind. I could not understand the caller very easily either in this instance.

so far so good on my bluetooth...everyone I talk to hears me fine and I hear them. In fact, a couple have commented how clear it is. If I roll the windows down, that does cause some problems but is to be expected. Sorry I don't have any info that is helpful.

Try turning the volume of the phone down as this can cause feedback and distorsion.This is mostly phone prep when the cradle is used.

Tried turning the volume down but then I can't hear anything... the volume is pretty low already even though I have set it pass the mid-way point of the selector. Anyone have trouble hearing?

Also, I sent my phone focus from center to the front speakers, hoping it would prevent that "are you driving?" car noise in the background

Unfortunately, this is due to limitations of the microphone . As a musician, I am very aware of what a cheap vs. expensive mic sounds like. Given that an excellent mic for such an application would cost in the thousands of dollars, I don't think most buyers would find it a worthwhile upgrade. Suprisingly though, I have had a few people say they can hear me better with the bluetooth than when I use the cell phone alone- go figure.

Sorry, I forgot one thing. I was having a few complaints until I realized that the fan was causing some of the noise. Redirecting the vents made a bit of difference.
