Bluetooth Technology


Did you know that in many states it is illegal to drive while talking on a cell phone? Laws have already been passed in states such as California, New York, and Washington. The laws undoubtedly make the road safer for all, keeping the driver’s eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. Bluetooth allows you to safely multi-task on the road, keeping you and others out of danger. To put it plainly, if you’re going to drive and talk, use your head: Bluetooth headsets are the smarter way to communicate.

So what is Bluetooth exactly? Bluetooth technology allows for wireless communication. Bluetooth headsets and hands-free kits use a special noise cancellation technology that allows you to have a conversation with the other party as if they were sitting right next to you. The Bluetooth products use voice activation technology for hands-free dialing, and with a headset and microphone put together in one convenient earpiece, you can chat away while using your hands for driving, typing or any other task at hand.

Check out the Bluetooth stereo section, which includes Bluetooth-ready car stereos and receivers as well as in-dash head units with built-in Bluetooth hands-free capability. The latest in-dash DVD players with built-in monitors feature touchscreen dialing and caller ID functions for most phones.

Another way to get Bluetooth in the car is by installing a sun-visor Bluetooth kit or a rearview mirror with built-in Bluetooth. Plug-and-play sun-visor kits mount on your sun-visor, and include a speaker and a microphone that you can mount on your dash. Sun-visor kits do not interface with the car stereo, making it easy to add or remove the unit from your vehicles. The rear-view mirror devices with built-in Bluetooth use voice activated dialing and audibly announce the name of the incoming caller. The caller ID is displayed on bottom corner of the rearview mirror to keep the driver’s eyes on the road. For further safety, when backing out in reverse, the parking sensors relay a beeping signal to alert the driver of an approaching object.

We also carry Bluetooth hands-free kits which can integrate with factory OEM stereos. With the use of Parrot and EGO by Funkwerk Bluetooth kits and Parrot or PAC factory integration harnesses, you can participate in wireless conversations through your vehicle’s stereo system and auto-mute the music or radio station while the conversation takes place. The caller’s voice is played over your car’s speakers allowing you to communicate as if on a speaker-phone. Using Bluetooth to take part in conversations over the car speakers gives you a factory integrated feel without having to replace or significantly modify the dash.
