If I got one of those bluetooth things you just put on your ear for my mobile do i have to get anything fitted to my car for it to work in there or do they work as is.

turn on bluetooth on your phone, make sure it has found the device and pair it, good to go

So nothing needed for in car just the phone and ear device then.

Some of the newer cars have radios that will detect an incoming call (via the smart phone dock) and mute the stereo while the call is active.

However I don't think that applies in this case.

should be all self contained, the bluetooth device has a rechargeable battery, it may need recharging via the cig lighter/usb

Yep got all that thanks skin.
Sure works out cheaoer than getting the car all wired up and fitted with a bluetooth system.

I've seen them, never tried one, do you have any idea range of from phone to headset?, seems most have about 4 to 5 hrs talk time ( so in my case would last months ) 10 days on standby, I have 10 days on my phone its gets charged more often than it is used, probably 4 charges to one phone call, often find it sitting in the car run flat

I do my talking on here, lol, at least most of you guys don't tell me to STFU ( well not many of ya do)

I dont know about range but you can have your phone in your pocket and just answer with the headset.

What are they called, and recommended brands? Thanks.

Just go and ask at a mobile shop

geek_newbie5, May 3, 3:03 am
