More information at: TrustedReviews, 9/2009 BlackBerry Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 Considering that UK law now mandates the use of a hands-free kit when making calls from a vehicle, it's a surprise that so many new cars don't come with them already built-in. No wonder then, that so many drivers end up wearing headsets, whose fiddly controls can also prove distracting. This is why visor-mounted speakerphones, such as the VM-605, are often touted as better options. Single Test.

Jabra Cruiser Bluetooth Speakerphone TrustedReviews 1/2010 - While built-in car kits are the most desirable means for using your phone while driving, these don't come standard in all cars yet, and though a Bluethooth headset might be considered an option, the small buttons on such a device can make it too distracting when you're on the road. The best bet then, is to check out a Bluetooth speakerphone, such as the Jabra Cruiser. This model is basically an updated version of their older SP700, which also features a built-in FM transmitter, so calls and music can be transmitted to your vehicles speakers. Review details: Single Test. One bluetooth speakerphone was reviewed and rated on design, features, performance and value.

LG HFB-500 solar-powered Bluetooth car kit Register Hardware 10/2008 - Many newer cars, especially executive models come with slick, integrated handsfree systems. However, not everyone can afford a Mazerati and the Maplin DIY jobs often end up making your car look less like KITT and more like a cat has gone rabid in the passenger seat and dragged the ignition wires out into the open. Enter the solar-powered, wire-free HFB-500 from LG.

Custom Car Cradle FM Transmitter Holder/Indoor Cradle Smartphone & PDA Essentials 75/2008 - FM transmitters for MP3 players have become increasingly popular since OFCOM declared them legal but car users had been enjoying their abilities even before this.

Venturi Mini PC Advisor 4/2008 - This handy little device lets you stream calls and music from your mobile to your car stereo. But is it worth the money?

iqua miniUFO Smartphone & PDA Essentials 58/2007 - Needless to say a handsfree kit is now de rigueuer if you intend to stay connected in your car. And with so many on the market it can be difficult to decide which is the best option for you. To be honest, there is less and less difference in performance with each passing cycle of products, and often it will come down to the more superficial factors to determine which to go for.

Parrot MK600 Bluetooth car kit TrustedReviews 1/2007 - Mobile phones have long since become ubiquitous, and it seems like we spend half our waking hours making calls, taking calls, or listening to someone else's call. For those that transport themselves by car, the ability to use the phone while driving has been cut right back by recent legislation, which made such operation illegal. This has led to a rise in the number of people buying either a) Borg-style bluetooth headsets or b) dedicated in-car kits. The latter come in two varieties - wired, designed to plug straight into the phone, and Bluetooth, designed to operate wirelessly. These can also come in variations - some plug into the car's electronics, muting the stereo and playing the call through the speakers, while some just plug into the cigarette lighter and have their own audio interface. This latest kit from Parrot is one of the more advanced varieties.

Gear4 BluEye TrustedReviews 1/2007 - So you’ve got your wish, and Mum, Dad, your partner or just your own credit card has given you the Christmas present you wanted – a shiny slap of Apple’s finest. The thing is that, making that initial investment is just the beginning of a slippery slope of potentially endless accessory buying. Once upon a time, your iPod used to come with everything you needed, but that’s not so any more. With the iPod’s famously sensitive shell a good case is an essential addition. Once you’ve sorted that out, then I suggest you pick up Gear4’s BluEye – to steal my own thunder it’s fantastic.

Movon MK10 Bluetooth car kit Pocket-lint.co.uk 9/2006 - If you don't want to feel self-conscious wearing a Bluetooth handsfree headset, but can't afford to fork out for an in-car system, the Movon MK10 might be the perfect solution.

Gear4 BluEye iPod-phone adaptor Register Hardware 11/2006 - The BluEye is a tiny gadget that's slightly taller and fatter than an SD memory card - it's 3.8 x 2.5 x 0.5cm - that connects to your iPod's dock connector and provides a earphone socket for your usual 'phones.

We notify you free of charge about new tests on the topic of: hands-free car kits. Your e-mail address:


Hands-free car kits use Bluetooth, which allows the phone to be anywhere in the vehicle. External systems often have a small display. In-car integrated systems, on the other hand, include SAP, which allows the car's powerful phone module to use a cellphone's SIM card over Bluetooth. Non-hands-free system are very seldom used.
