I use no car charger, just the home charger in my briefcase I break out at work if needed, and use the home USB for charging on the computer.
Just the standard plastic clip that it came with.
I also use the Jabra adapter so I can use my BT250 with my BB. If my blackberry is wireless, dammit so will my headset be! lol.

So it's just my BT250 headset as an AM accessory.

I also like the plastic holster that came with the device -- I like the click it makes when it locks in place, and I like the easy one handed access.

I have been using the Jabra BT200 wireless headset for the past week or so, and I LOVE it. I got it on eBay for under $40 (the guy had listed 100 units at that But It Now price.

I didn't think you could use the BT250 with the Blackberry -- isn't the 250 a "true" bluetooth device? I thought it didn't have a "dongle" at all...strange...

You're right, typed it up too early in the morning after waking up, BT200 on the BB, the 250 is on my V600 lol, my bad.

Off topic...

Wouldn't it be great if Jabra would take the guts of the BT200 and shape it like a long rectangle that could clip onto the side of the Blackberry? They could have the jack be part of the casing, so no more wires, and only one belt clip. They could have a cutout for the USB plug, or even run a USB extension. It would simply make the Blackberry a bit wider. I bet they could do it for almost no cost, and sell a whole bunch of them to us gadget freaks...

That'd be hot! I'd be in line to get one lol, it's nice no wires tho for the headset, but that little wire from the BB to my belt annoys me when I need to pick it up out of the holster, gotta unplug it all the time :(

I'm going to email a suggestion to Jabra. They'll most likely ignore it, but what the heck -- it would be AWSOME!

My German isn't what it used to be, but my understanding is that it's essentially a hands free (speakerphone) device for the Blackberry. It looks like it's built in to the mirror (controls etc are on the mirror). Seems like a cool idea, although you have to run the wires from the mirror down to the cigarette lighter (again, that's what I'm getting from this - I could be mis-reading).

Not sure it's worth $80 euros + shipping....

Its a handsfree set for the car, built in a driving mirror. It connects to the plug of the headset, can record calls etc. Nice
