What Hands Free Options Are Available for Use in Cars?

Letitia Thomas

Laws are getting more strict on drivers who use phones while they are driving. Because of this, many drivers are looking for safer and legally acceptable options to keep in touch with other people when they are driving. This article discusses the Bluetooth options that are available to motorists.

Bluetooth Car Kits

These car kits can be bought from any online or offline shop selling car accessories. Once you have it, you can follow the simple installation guidelines that are provided by the manufacturer of that product so that the kit is paired with your phone. Depending on how sophisticated the car kit is, you may or may not be able to receive or make calls without touching your phone at all. This kit is intended for retrofitting in cars that did not have a Bluetooth kit installed by the car manufacturer.

In-Built Bluetooth Car Kits

The car manufacturer fits these kits into the car before it leaves the production line. The features of these in-built kits vary from one manufacturer to the next. For instance, one manufacturer may equip the kit with a flat screen display from which you can view text messages or browse your phone book before making a call. Some manufacturers equip the in-built kits with the capability to respond to voice commands, as long as your handset supports such a function. Thus, there is no limit as to what features you can expect from these kits, but the bottom line is that they allow you to limit how much your hands spend touching the phone while you are driving.

Bluetooth Headsets

These were the first hands-free devices to hit the market, and they are still very popular because their use extends way beyond the car; you can use them as you ride a motorbike, and you can use them when you are walking down the street. They work by linking with the Bluetooth capability in your phone. The Bluetooth technology in your headset then transmits what you say to the phone and vice versa. All this exchange happens in real time, so there is no lag that would make using the headset awkward.

It is therefore up to you to weigh the pros and cons of each of the three alternatives above so that you select the one that you are most comfortable with. In the end, the objective is  to keep your hands off the phone as you drive. For more information, contact a business such as Gold Coast Car Audio.

I am going to discuss which accessories you need, which you can make yourself, how to use them in multiple ways and how to spot the best quality.
