With the expected introduction (in the UK) of points on your licence for driving with a phone in your hand, it might be worth considering an alternative if you need to stay in contact on the road – like the Pioneer DEH-P75BT Bluetooth car stereo.
The Pioneer DEH-P75BT combines a Bluetooth headset and fully-featured stereo system for handsfree calling through your car’s music system. It supports both hands-free and audio profiles from your mobile phone, with voice playback of the caller through stereo and front speakers – there is, of course, auto-muting when a call comes through. Your complete address book can also be transferred into the stereo’s internal memory.
Music-wise, there’s CD/MP3/WMA playback, MP3 streaming from a Bluetooth phone to the stereo, fully-featured radio playback, an MOSFET 50W x 4 amplifier, 5-mode preset equaliser, a motorised detachable front panel and a remote control. And for iPod owners, an adaptor gives you access to your entire song collection on the move.
You can pick up the Pioneer DEH-P75BT now, priced around £275.
