In car bluetooth handsfree

I am looking for some feedback on the various in car bluetooth kits that are available in the marketplace, ie the fully installed kits rather than the in ear jobbies.

I have a Pioneer head unit that offers bluetooth headset features however due to a design fault it is fecking useless, ie the mobile phone can't be within a metre of the head unit unless you are prepared for the caller to put up with terrible interference.

Admittedly for a normal phone this would be of a lesser issue as there is the facility to store numbers on the headset, but as I use a XDA Exec with TomTom, I need the pda where I can see it

I have used an in ear device in the past, but it is bloody annoying.

I have looked at the various Parrot kits, the 3000, 3100 and 3200 all of which would do the job, but I don't know how they fair in reality.

I have used a Nokia bluetooth kit, IIRC CK1W or was it CK 7W that appeared to be a litle flaky when trying to connect to the exec.

Whilst browsing eBay , I have come across these SIEMENS BLUETOOTH HANDSFREE CAR KIT HKW-600 UK STOCK (item 180069122516 end time 08-Jan-07 17:01:32 GMT) , BLUETOOTH HANDSFREE CAR KIT (item 190067791807 end time 10-Jan-07 20:00:05 GMT) , MOTOROLA BLUETOOTH HANDSFREE CAR KIT HF850 for L7 V3x Q (item 280064098543 end time 05-Jan-07 21:23:47 GMT)

So does anyone use any of the above and does anyone have any recommendations?

Cheers and Happy New Year
