So i have a question about the Kensington one..
From the reviews it sounds like it uses the Kensington plug for mic not your phone?
I dont know that is what i want it to do, i'd like to use my actual phone for the mic once its mounted on my dash and simply use the bluetooth for "wireless" output to a small bluetooth thing such as this i can plug into my center divider and close the lid(Both 12v aux and aux in are in it)...so its just hidden out of the way and i can just get in the car, mount my phone and be on my way.
Sound slike you have to use its microphone though, which would mean i need to have it on the 12V on my dashboard, which i'd rather stay away from as im trying to get the rats nest of cables on my dash down as the entire point of this.
The miccus one looked promising, but reading reviews it looks like you have to automatically re bind it every time you get out of range...which defeats the entire point for me.

Unless the desire to avoid using a cable is really the most important thing, you'll probably get noticeably better sound quality just running a cable from your Aux input to the headphone jack on the Evo. It's a lot cheaper, too.PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.

I have been using the BBerry Bluetooth Audio Gateway with my EVO since the day the EVO was released (used with Pre before the EVO). It works perfectly every time and auto connects whenever my ignition is turned on. The audio quality may not be quite as good as with a hardwire connection, but it still sounds excellent. I picked mine up for about $30 on eBay new in box.

Re: Bluetooth -> Aux Setup for Car
With my car, the phone just connects directly to the built in bluetooth from the car. I really dont need any external device..(i didnt look at the items u guys were reffering to, maybe thats y i dont get the need for an external device)

Besides, most of those Bluetooth receivers have to be charged all the time which trades one minor inconvenience (using audio wires) for another (charging), IMHO.

Picked up the blackberry one and hope it works ok. My aux jack is in the center console and running that wire to the unit sucks. Since the center console also has a charging port right next to it, I can hide this whole unit there out of site.
Hope it works as well as most reviews say.
For those that have it. I know you can also use your bluetooth headset at the same time, but what about phone as a speaker phone? Does sound go to speakers? Or will it switch the the phone speaker?
