I recently decided to buy a hands-free Bluetooth speaker for my iPhone so that I could make calls while driving.  I read some reviews and decided to go for Motorola Roadster Pro.   All over the web reviewers are singing it’s praises. 9/10, 9.5/10, I even saw a 9.63/10!  Unfortunately, when it arrived, I discovered that the voice quality of the outgoing calls is woeful.
