Bluetooth Kits

Do you use your phone in your car?

Do you realise that it is an offence to use a hand held device in a vehicle (parked or moving) which carries a minimum 6 points on your license and upto a £2000 fine.

In todays market, gone are the days of having to buy a new cradle or phone kit every time you change your phone.  Technology has come a long way and the most popular type of phone kit nowadays is a Bluetooth kit.  Generally speaking, there are 4 ways to get a bluetooth solution for your vehicle.

Please read on for further information to help you choose which bluetooth solution is right for you.

Universal

The most basic type of Hands Free kit is a universal (fit any vehicle) solution.  This maybe one of the poor quality ‘in ear’ devices, or the type of device that clips onto a sunvisor.  These are in no way linked to the vehicles speaker system, meaning you would have to turn the radio down or off in order to have a conversation.  Some are better than others and would give you phonebook dialing as well as answering and ending a phone call.

Integrated – Aftermarket

_DSC2873For an aftermarket solution the most well known and market leader is the Parrot range of professional phone kits.  Here at Source we are part of the Certified Parrot Installer Program and have the expertise to find something to suit your needs. There are several options within the Parrot range, with or without displays and with or without music connectivity.  All of these kits will synchronise the phonebook from the phone (dependant on the phone) which will allow you to never have to pick up or touch your phone again.  With the use of additional leads the phone conversation can be run through the existing car speakers so you can have a nice loud and clear conversation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

_DSC3310Integrated – Vehicle Manufacturers Kit

We also supply and fit factory phone kits (vehicle dependant) which would give you full control through factory telephone buttons on the stereo or steering wheel.  These kits would also use any displays that the car may have to give you phonebook information (phone dependant). This type of kit will mute the stereo system in the vehicle to give you the conversation through the vehicle speakers.

 

 

 

 

 

_DSC6703Replacement Stereo

If you want to combine a phone kit with having a better sound in the vehicle then a replacement stereo can be used.  There are many stereos now on the market that have a bluetooth kit built into them, allowing you to use the stereo to answer and make calls.  Some of these will also give you access to your phonebook contacts so you don’t have to pick the phone up at all.

I bought a car radio from somewhere else with the intention of replacing the factory installed one. I contacted Halfords and they bluntly told me that they did not fit a radio that was not supplied by them. I then stumbled upon Source Sounds on internet and decided to give them a try.
What set wind to my sails was their warm customer relations and their confidence that it was “do-able!”. Their charges are reasonable as well.
They changed the fascia and in the process provided extra space for auxiliary equipment (space that had been covered by only two knobs on the previous radio). They kept me updated on the progress. I now have a trim dashboard , and am over the moon! Thanks to Paul and his team. Your customer care is second to none.

Source Sounds recently completed a stealth boot install in my Octavia, along with new front speakers and some additional little tweaks. The work they have done has been immaculate. You would never know the anything had changed, until the music starts that is. The improvement is immense. I just want to take my car for drives, just to listen to things.

I highly recommend Source Sounds. Excellent work, very helpful and knowledgeable staff and excellent aftercare and support. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my ICE needs.
