Great hands free kit that charges from the sun

Specifications

The Scosche solVUE comes with a USB charging cable, a DC adapter for USB devices, and a cradle for the visor for your car or the window. It also includes the Scosche solVUE unit itself. It is available to purchase for $109.99.

In Use

I have used a bunch of handsfree kits in the car over the years. The thing they all had in common was that they attached to the visor of my car. I am not a fan of anything hanging up there on the visor, it looks bad and the clips tend to mess up the visor fabric over time. I also didn’t like that some of the units I have tested ran out of power fast and had to be brought inside to charge.

The Scosche solVUE is a little solar panel on the back that will trickle charge the handsfree kit when your car is out in the sun. Eventually you will need to recharge the device and it comes with a DC outlet USB adapter and a USB charge cable for use in the car.

I really like that the Scosche solVUE comes with two brackets. One of them will let you put the Scosche solVUE on your visor if you want. The other has two suction cups and sticks the Scosche solVUE to your windshield where it can charge and is out of the way. If you mount the Scosche solVUE to the windshield the LCD screen tilts towards the driver to make it easy to read the status of the device and see who is calling.

You really don’t have to see who is calling because the Scosche solVUE will speak the name of the caller from your caller ID out to you and will tell you the phone number calling. If you want to answer the call, all you need to do is hit the call button. That same button ends calls as well.

The Scosche solVUE has plenty of volume you will want to turn it down if your car is quiet. In noisier cars like mine or when driving with the windows down the device has plenty of volume so, you can hear what is being said. The pairing process was fast and easy. My iPhone will also allow voice dialing using the Scosche solVUE. You just hit the phone button on the Scosche solVUE once and it activates voice dialing. You can then say who you want to call and the number will dial.

Call quality is very good and the people on both ends of the conversation can clearly hear and be heard. One of the downsides to the Scosche solVUE and other devices like it is that it has too much range. I find my calls in and out are transferred to the Scosche solVUE in the car when I am in the house in rooms close to the garage. That gets irritating after a while. The Scosche solVUE will also automatically pair to your phone when you get back in range after leaving the car.

Verdict

Pros

  • Mounts to windshield
  • Reads caller ID info
  • Solar panel

Cons

  • Connects to calls when I am in the house at times
 

Conclusion

The Scosche solVUE is a very good hands free kit that anyone needing to get legal or wanting to make and receive calls when driving will want to check out.
