Bluetooth Phone 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 3 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.

 

002Integrated – Aftermarket
For 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.

 

ford-ranger-2009-5There are several options within the Parrot range, with or without displays and with or without ipod 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.

vw-scirocco-2009-oem-phone-kit-upgrade-006Integrated – 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.

 

Replacement Stereo
DEH 6400BT
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.

Was there today, 18th May at 8am to have the front components on my ford focus changed to a pair of Audison Prima’s, along with some sound deadening anf wave diffusers fitted.
Got there and the staff couldnt have been more helpful or polite. Told me it would he ready by midday. After 2 and half hrs i went to have a look to see how the work was going and the technicians were almost done with it even talking to me during finishing off the install to advise me on future upgrades im thinking of and how to achieve the result im after.
Overall im very impressed, can’t reccommend them enough and im definitely going back for the rear speakers and headunit, amp subwoofer setup in a few months.
They even vaccumed the car after they had finished and went through the setip of my current stock stereo to maoe sure the new speakers were set right, advising me on how to adjust the headunit to ensure optimal burn in for the new speakers.
