Bluetooth Hands-free Speaker For Your Car

Ask a Geek Girl: Bluetooth Speakerphone Conundrum

I got an email from a friend the other day wondering about which Bluetooth speakerphone she should get to be compliant with the upcoming California Hands-Free law that goes into effect tomorrow! She writes:

Do you know which visor Bluetooth device I can get for my LGEnv2 and my husband's LGvx5400? We have Verizon and they don't have anything at the stores yet that I can pick up. I have to be able to do voice dialing and hear the other person clearly. Oh, and hubby's gonna be spittin' mad if it's complicated!

Since I didn't want anyone spitting on anything, I got right on the task! To find out which device I would recommend, just


After a little digging, I finally settled on the Motorola T505 hands-free speaker. It's simple to use (just push a few buttons on the back to link up), and you can either use the effective internal speaker to gab away, or with slightly more effort you can program your signal to route through your FM radio frequency for a better sounding conversation. Audio-voice dialing and caller ID make it the best for in-car dialing without picking up your phone. It's not the cheapest on the block (coming in at $97 on Newegg), but it's getting some really positive reviews and seems to be the easiest to use. Another cool feature? You can stream your tunes through the T505 from your Bluetooth compatible MP3 player, and still be able to take calls with noise-reduction technology!

Do you have any recommendations for my pal? Let her know what you use in the comments below!
