I recently purchased a jvc kd-r900, I'm very happy with the deck except for the bluetooth handsfree. People on the other end cannot hear me very well and I suspect the microphone is part of the problem.

I'm looking for a higher quality lapel style microphone, I need about five feet of cord but I can use extenders if I have to.

My main concern is that the mic is inside a moving car.

where is the mic placed, I installed a kd-r800 in my sister's car with the mic being placed in the gauge cluster and people hear her fine. The gain does need to be set to 1 otherwise there is too much noise.

I messed around with the bluetooth feature more. I don't think its the microphone because it works fine when the engine is off. When the car is moving I can hear the person on the other line but they can't hear me.

Anyone know if the bundled mic could be replaced with a 3rd party unit? It looks like it has a 3.5mm mono plug.

I have the same problem with the JVC KD-R800. The car phone works fine while not driving. However, once I get up to speed, no one can understand me as there is too much road noise. I can hear them fine, though, through the speakers. I've tried adjusting mic sensitivity (1-3), but same problem. The mic is installed on the top of the steering column facing me.

Here's a quote from JVC's website:
"All JVC Dual USB Receivers with Bluetooth® also include an external wired microphone for optimal voice sensitivity, noise cancellation, and positioning."
http://www.mobile.jvc.com/bluetooth.jsp

The noise cancellation--if it exists--appears to be poor.

I had jvc at one time as well (pioneer now). Road noise was a real issue. It helps a little if you mount above on the visor. The roof liner seems to cancel out a bit of noise.
