Help Jabra Freeway in car speakerphone

What do you reckon to this:-

Jabra

My Brera has an excellent in built connect NAV but you need to put the sim from my phone in each time & my dexterity isn't that great.

I was considering a fully plumbed in Parrott kit but want to maintain the stock look & save some pennies. This costs £70.

The freeway clips on to the visor so could easily be swapped into my Spider too.

Anyone got one? Opinions if you please

TVM,

I thought that you could get duplicate SIM cards from your supplier for exactly this purpose, so you don't have to swap them around?

Had a look at the presentation video on the website - looked poor and in some pictures, it actually looked photoshopped.

Have you seen one, in the flesh, so to speak?

The thought of having something like that attatched to the sun visor would worry me, firstly because, despite the clips, I would be concerned that it wouldn't be stable and secondly because it would be just above my line of vision and therefore a distraction.

Is this just so that you can use hands free?

I can't imagine that it would be that great in the Spider, unless you were actually stationary - with the wind noise over 40 mph would surely cancel out any 'crystal clear sound' from the speaker - or am I missing something?

EDIT:

Sorry, I know you were asking for opinions only from people who had one. Just offering my initial thoughts. Hope you don't mind?

Simon, sorry can't comment on this Jabra, but had a different model Jabra bluetooth one in the GTV. I replaced it with one of these :
RIM VM-605 Visor Mount Speakerphone: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

Will work through the spiders speakers
We have used it in several hire cars to get iphone music piped through the cars speakers . It has a very low profile so does not obscure vision and works really well .

Use a duplicate sim - collegue has one: it's brilliant. When the car has the ignition on, the sim in the car takes precedence over the one in the phone.

I've got the Parrot Minikit Slim which works on the same principles, decent for receiving calls, the voice recognition for dialling out via the phonebook can be a bit of a faff though, but i've also used it in an MX-5 and it was plenty loud enough.

Can't get a duplicate sim on O2

Won one of the Jabra's on eBay for a mere £53 so expect a review soon
