Jupiter Jack Put Through A Real Life Test

by Theresa on April 12, 2010 · 2 comments

In this Jupiter Jack review, you can see how this device is installed  and how well it really works. By the way, Jupiter Jack was originally named "Black Jack" and the company soon realized that this name was under trademark restrictions. Go figure! With all the new bylaws going into effect in different provinces and states, many of us need a legal way to use our cell phones while driving. Find out if it really works.

A real life review of Jupiter Jack

Jupiter Jack Infomercial Claims

  • An easy to use device that turns your car radio into a hands fee speaker phone.
  • You use it by plugging Jupiter Jack into your cell phone's headset jack. Then you tune your car radio to 99.3 FM and start talking hands free.
  • It features a built in microphone that transmits your voice clearly. You also hear your caller's voice clearly through your car's speakers.
  • Clear robust sound that only your car speaker can provide allowing you to conveniently talk and drive at the same time.
  • It works with any cell phone with an headphone jack. Some phones may require an adapter, the most common of which are included in the package.

How Jupiter Jack Actually Works

  • The picture on the Jupiter Jack box is misleading. It shows that it plugs directly in your phone...you actually need an adapter.
  • You phone reception has noise and echos through the two radio station frequencies. Sometimes it works only if you hold the Jupiter Jack right in front of your car stereo.
  • If you have local radio stations with a strong signal, the Jupiter Jack transmission can't beat out the static and noise.
  • Receiver of the calls hears an echo.
  • When you call to order this product from the vendor, their ordering process is very confusing and at the end doesn't give your order total.

Jupiter Jack is getting many complaints and definitely doesn't work for everyone. I've heard a few people say that it does work clearly for them. Although I wouldn't take a chance. A blue tooth device is better since you aren't limited to just the car. You can use it around the home etc. Here's another auto accessory called Driveway Patrol and a review if you wonder if it actually works as advertised.

I bought the jupiter jack, but soon realized after I got home and tried it that the adapters didn’t fit my HTC g1. I ordere the ‘adapter’ for it and received it just yesterday. The adapter doesn’t do anything for my phone. I do have to say that the kit came with an adapter that di d work for my brothers Samsung Behold. I should’ve stopped once it made me pay for an ‘adapter’.

Sorry to hear that Crystal. What a pain! Is there anyway you can get a different adapter for it or are you sending it back?
