New hands-free kit by TomTom

2012-08-03 13:05

NEW HANDS-FREE-CAR-KIT: TomTom has launched a new hands-free-car-kit for smartphones. It enables drivers to keep their hands on the wheel while navigating.

TomTom’s new hands-free car kit for smartphones aims to assist drivers all the while keeping them safe. The kit will allow users to stay focused on they’re driving while driving.

“The new car kit has been designed for safety and convenience,” Corinne Vigreux, MD at TomTom said. “With advanced new features, our aim is to help drivers keep their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road.”

ADVANCED FEATURES

The new product has high quality audio for loud, clear, hands-free calling and navigation. The new features include an advanced noise and echo cancellation system which reduces background sound for the caller and removes ambient noise for the driver.

New mounting options make smartphone use safer and more convenient. The car kit has an adjustable grip to fit any smartphone with or without its cover.  An extendable microphone can be clipped to the sun visor to ensure conversations are louder and clearer.

It comes in two versions to support iPhone and micro USB compatible smartphones such as Android phones. Two of these phones can automatically pair simultaneously and when connected via bluetooth, voice recognition functionality can be activated - enabling drivers to navigate and dial without taking their hands off the wheel.
