battery life isnt that bad.

it works great with froyo but i swear it has a mind of its own. when it works it is the most awesome devise ever.

somedays it work all day with no disconnects
others it connects and disconnects alot
and other days its useless.

SOOOO much better since the recent updates but on a side note doesnt work to well with gingerbread on cm7

I just received my Liveview yesterday. Device was very unstable out of the box. I went to the Sony site and downloaded the new software update and it has now been great so far. I will try to give you an update after I have had it for a week.

After living with Liveview for a week, all I can say is that it has a mind of its own. I have it paired with a stock Evo. It sometimes caused my Evo to lock up. The only issue around this is to remove and re-install the battery. I hope that Sony is working on another update in the near future. As of now, it is testing my patience. It is great when it works. I downloaded a plug-in that allows me to launch any app on my phone from the liveview.

Started back using my Liveview last month after receiving an update in the Android market on my phone. 30 days later, I haven't ran into any issues. Before the update, it would lock up my Evo requiring a battery pull just to restart. So far it is working flawlessly .
