And that, right there, is why I like my wireless iBall!

The IBALL can be a very useful and needed item depending on what you are driving. I tried the Iball but when experiencing problems with interference I called the manuf. and told them of them problem with them sending a new unit to me. Well, after trying again with the same problems happening I looked into what else could be causing the problem. Make the story come to an end quickly, it operates on the same frequency as a cell phone. My 2011 Silverado has the automatic Bluetooth connection when you crank it up, so instant interference problems when the engine is running. If your vehicle has automatic Bluetooth, and no way to disarm it, you will be stuck with the problem. The way around it is to get a digital wireless backup camera. I did that and truly love my wireless back up camera, call it a marriage saver!!
