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.

Testimonials

When I arrived back home after my short trip from Source to Donny today, I thought a short thank you email was in order. When I first sat behind the wheel and heard what a difference your adjustments had made, I was very pleased. I put Pink Floyds’ “Dark Side Of The Moon” in and set off for home. When I pulled onto my drive, I couldn’t get out of the car for 10 minutes because the CD hadn’t finished. It was stunning ! All the meticulous work you put into my install came together today and exceeded all my expectations. The sound stage is now immense, fills the front of the car and is fully balanced to my seating position. A great many thanks to you and all the team at Source Sounds, I wish you every success in the future.

I recently visited Source Sounds to have a new security system fitted to my Land Rover Defender. They are 170 miles from where I live. The whole experience from the time I first made contact with them was superb, trouble free and a pleasure. Whilst there I also invested in a dash cam which they hard wired and fitted for me. Despite all of the work carried out, when I collected the vehicle there was no sign that anyone had interfered with vehicle, inside and out. Paul spent an hour plus with me on collection to explain the use of the items fitted. I was also assisted with hotel transport and securing my vehicle overnight. No wonder people travel miles to use their service. I won’t hesitate to use again.

We traveled from Rotherham to get these guys to fit some reversing sensors to my wife’s car, I’d been before and they were very professional for both alarms and a radio on my van and this time as before they were brilliant. The work was completed ahead of time and one of the guys came out and spent 10 minutes explaining EXACTLY how parking sensors worked which was great as I hadn’t a clue. We are very pleased with both the professionalism of the people and the work in which they do. Perfect!!! Many, many thanks for such a great company.
