#1 use for me was to have this as more of a remote head than a mic. My install is in a 2021 RAM 1500. My radio is in the center console under the cup holders so I need the screen but the standard hand mic would have worked fine and I quite liked the design of it. I find the size of the BT-01 a little small for my hands (I’m 6’/220 lbs). I wish it had knobs on the top for channel & volume instead of buttons. It becomes a bit fidgety having to adjust my grip on the mic to make volume or channel changes and having to toggle between the two. I find it’s always on the wrong one initially :) The screen is good but is EASILY blemished. I put a screen protector on mine day 2 after getting a few scratches just using it as normal. The bluetooth function on the 578UVIII isn’t compatible with my truck’s system. I can pair it but it won’t “connect” for hands free use. So this was the next best option. Unfortunate because that was a big selling point for me on the Anytone radios in general. Overall I am still debating the usefulness for MY situation.
