I purchased this model to replace a broken Kinvio BTC450 back in August.

While this does automatically connect when starting the car, it did *not* automatically disconnect when turning off the car (S7 Edge at the time) - more of a nuisance than you'd think, as music would continue playing from my phone when you exit the vehicle, until you turn it off manually. First world problems, I know, but annoying nonetheless.

Also, a ground loop isolator was required for me - feedback was very noticeable, to the point that I would need to turn the volume all the way down in moments of silence. YMMV, I suppose, but I did not have that issue with the Kinvio in the same vehicle.

Holding the button down does not bring up Siri or Google Now, like many of the others I've tested. You could try the voice commands to prompt them, but you would probably need to pause the music for voice recognition. Hands-free capability is certainly limited there.

All in all - it works, I guess, but it was more nuisance than solution for me. It solved one problem - getting music to wirelessly play in my BT-handicapped car, but left many others unsolved. Having a ground loop isolator isn't the worst thing, it's only a few bucks. I've since purchased a refurb BTC450 (best BT receiver I've used to date) for $20 from Amazon Warehouse for my main and threw this in the beater; I have yet to have used it again yet.

I do have an iPhone 7 now, so I'll test the 'disconnectivity' issues in a moment & update for my fellow iOS users.

Edit: As promised, I checked & the iPhone *does* automatically disconnect. Possible Android-only issue? Not sure; I'll test if someone comes over with another Android device. For now, I guess YMMV with Android devices.. I only have a sample size of 1 (albeit a very popular flagship phone).

Edit (2): It looks like the BTC450 is discontinued, sorry guys :/ I did some research, and the new 455 is on their website but not available. Hopefully they'll be releasing soon!

I have this and it works well except the buttons on the device are not very responsive. It doesn't always register when you push on it to hang up.

Thanks, OP. had been looking for something like this since I got my iPhone 7 and want to listen to music and charge at the same time in a non-BT car. The 3 port charger is a nice addition.

Just wanted to point out a lot of reviews say the opposite - that it does disconnect automatically, it does work with Google now, and groud loop isolator is not needed. I imagine everything depends on your phone, bluetooth, and version of Android, possibly even the version of firmware on the device.
