Hands free car kits


  • Bluetooth wireless technology is a short-range communications technology intended to replace the cables connecting portable and/or fixed devices while maintaining high levels of security. The key features of Bluetooth technology are robustness, efficiency, and cost effectiveness. The Bluetooth specification defines a uniform structure for a wide range of devices to connect and communicate with each other.
  • One such device is the hands free car kit which is fully fitted in your car. When you start the engine of the car, the kit will send out a handshake to any Bluetooth devices. In this case it would be your mobile, if your mobile is ‘paired with the kit  i.e. it recognizes the handshake and it will respond with its own handshake and the pairing is complete. Once this is done, the kit and the mobile exchange information about themselves. For example, the services they are able to share and any updates on information such as contacts which then become static records for that connection. The kit will then ask the phone for additional information such as battery and signal strength if the kit has a display. This is the fluid information that will be constantly updated throughout the connection.
  • The mobile can connect without the need of physical wires.
  • Most phones have Bluetooth connectivity and multiple phones can be connected to the kit.
  • With the advent of multipoint technology, some car kits can now have two phones connected simultaneously. Multipoint is a new development that allows your car kit to be connected to two Bluetooth phones at the same time. When a call comes in, the car kit knows which set is ringing and will connect to the phone automatically.
  • Network signal is by far the biggest consideration with a phone being used in a car, as most users of Bluetooth kits tend to place the mobile under what is often referred to as the ‘glass line of the car’. Considering that radio signals which provide you with sound clarity travel in straight lines and do not like travelling through metal, it makes sense not to place your phone under this lineas it greatly reduces the signal and therefore  the clarity and the ability to make or receive calls.
  • Battery use – although Bluetooth has a low power consumption, using this technology will use up more battery power if left on; a concern in devices such as mobile phones. Bear in mind also that the low signal strength makes the phone work harder and also puts further strain on the battery.

Motonav tn series
  • There’s two things that will immediately get your attention: The extra wide, cinema-like 5.1″ screen and the vibrant color and quality of the hi-res display. It’s probably the best screen and fastest refresh rate I’ve yet seen on a pnd, and that includes the HP310 and Navigon 7200, my previous display champs. If those bright colors aren’t quite your taste, there are two additional map color choices. “Smooth”, which resembles the Americana map colors on my Tomtom, and “Minimal” which is pretty much shades of gray, but retaining that bright orange for you active route. While “Vibrant” will definitely get your attention and “oohh’s” from your passengers with the bright blues, greens, pinks and orange, “Smooth” was more my taste after a couple of days.

Thb Bury 9060 review


  • The only visible part of the installation is the screen – which is big enough to be clear but not too big to be an eyesore. Styling is very simple & unobtrusive – should suit any car. Screen has advantages of different colour options to suit the cars dashpanel style / lighting.
  • Performance is fantastic :
  • - Very fast pairing – often before I’m into the seat (unit is wired to start up when the central locking unlocks the door)
  • - Voice recognition is good (as long as background noise is reasonable – ie doesn’t like windscreen demister on full speed !)
  • - No issues with contact names / numbers that are generated in MS Outlook on a PC & then synced onto the mobile phone. Works well even when you have multiple numbers for the same contact (Eg home, mobile, office etc)
  • Received speech is really clear through the car’s stereo & I’m told my voice is very clear to recipients – with very good isolation of road / tyre & wind noise





Bluetooth fully fitted with steering wheel controls
