After a simple "pairing" process in the iPad Settings menu (under Bluetooth), the speaker automatically mutes your iDevice and projects the audio output through it's speaker.
A pretty good sound, and emanating from the relative direction of the communicator's face. We at Villa Esperanza Services are very interested in the potential for an external speaker to direct the attention of the communication partner away from the device and toward the face of the communicator...Could be an effective avenue? What a great research study! Any takers?
The product name on Amazon.com: Jabra DRIVE Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone ($39.99)
