Whomever I call can hear me clearly so the spot was a great choice. My only issue has been that callers hear themselves repeated which I've identified as microphone sensitivity when passed a certain volume. I've rigged it for the meantime to reduce the feedback and may get an Alpine microphone in place of this Sony one being that I've never had such as issue with my previous Alpine Bluetooth head-units.Interesting place for your mic placement. I have mine on the roof beside the rear view. Mine seems far away (I'm tall and have the seat back) so I will look at your way and see if that works.
