Motorola VS Jabra ?

5 posts in this topic

There I finally got my first this vs that thread. grin.gif

Do you use a bluetooth ear piece for your cell phone?

If so which one would you recommend? Right now I'm looking at the Motorola H850 or the Jabra BT250V .

I've got the H500 and I haven't had any issues with it thus far. I've been using it about a year. I don't have any experience with Jabra or know anyone that uses one.

They all work pretty good. Motorola is a tad better then the Jabra. They both tend to pick up a lot of backgrouond noise. If you use it in a noisy enviroment such as a tractor or a semi truck, I would strongly recommend looking into the Blue Parrott B150 Road Warrior. The others don't even come close when it comes to noise cancelling. The Blue Parrott comes through clear on both ends with the radio turned up loud enough that it is hard to talk. Depending on where you buy them they range from $100 to $120. They also have a 30 foot range, so you could leave the phone in the fish house and keep talking while you walk thirty feet to check the tip-up. grin.gif

The H850 has a better mic and the jabra a better ear piece but like BIG DS said they are both going to pickup background noises. The Motorola H700 has a background noise canceling mic that seems to work pretty good but is about $20 - $30 more depending on where you buy it. I have had or tested the Moto H700, (2) H850's, H350, Jabra JT500, and BlueTek X2.

Parrot is a great headset from what I've heard and is well worth the money.

I think my next headset is going to be from Jawbone. The speaker and mic are suppose to be incredible on these!

I had a Moto H700 or H750, not sure what it was. It bounced off the windshield a few times before I gave it to a friend. I then bought a Jabra that would not connect with the phone I had at the time (Treo) because of the phone. I bought a H500 and hated it because I work on equipment and it did not hang on my ear good enough when I was bent over and my head cocked. The best I have had so far was a Blue Ant but I wore the speaker out (my phone bills are in the $200 to $400 category, business pays it,not me). I am now on the Moto H375 and it seems ok. My co-workers all complain about little bugs in their Jabras. But again, they all have Treo's which appear to be very finicky on Bluetooth head sets. I just got a Moto Razr phone and so far so good. I think your phone can make a HUGE difference on how the Bluetooth works. Check your phone website to see what they recommend.

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Thanks a lot phishnerd! I will give it a shot and let ya know how I do! I am hoping to get out tomorrow if not hopefully this weekend! Thanks for the tips on baiting also! What would you use for live baits?
