Almost half the states have passed laws requiring use of a hands-free device in your car if you're going to talk while driving. Eventually they all will. Most Bluetooth hands-free kits require your radio to be satellite or remote CD Changer capable. Even then, the Bluetooth kit is sometimes not compatible with those options. That rules out a large number of people who either don't have radios with those capabilities or don't want to lose those features just to add Bluetooth. Enter the iSimple TranzIT BLU HF... (Otherwise known as the ISFM2351.)
The ISFM2351 Bluetooth interface allows you to directly connect your Bluetooth phone to your car stereo. Use it to make and receive calls through your car stereo. If you have an iPhone or Android smartphone (or any other phone with A2DP technology) you can also stream music wirelessly from the phone. iPhones and Android devices also allow you to issue commands using Voice Recognition (VR). Some non-smartphones support VR as well. (Read more on these features below.) This kit uses the FM antenna connection on the back of your radio to do this, so it's a great option for vehicles that don't have an available aux input. But it also includes a 3.5mm headphone jack to pipe the audio through your radio's aux input, if so equipped.
This kit includes a noise-cancelling microphone that you will mount somewhere in your vehicle. The cable is several feet long and the microphone includes a detachable mounting clip, so there are a multitude of routing options. The microphone will have to be mounted where it can pick up your voice relatively easily. It is black in color, so it won't stand out in most mounting locations. You will have to use the microphone that comes with this kit. You cannot use your factory OnStar microphone, for instance. Another main component of this kit is the low-profile, dash-mountable control button that is used to access all the features. The control button has to be mounted within reach but does not have to be in sight. This kit uses standard 'motorola' antenna connectors. It is compatible in ANY vehicle with a radio. However, some radios (especially in vehicles not in the Compatibility List) may use a different antenna jack. If so, antenna adapters will be required. Call or email with your application if you have questions about your antenna plug.
Voice Recognition (VR):
Taking/making calls is as simple as pressing a preset button on your radio and pressing the small control button. The default FM frequency is 98.1 but, if you have a smartphone (or temporary access to one), you can assign ANY frequency on your FM dial. FM reception is cut off when using this kit. This is great because it eliminates interference problems that plague many RF-based kits. (If you've heard complaints about other, cheap RF kits, it's probably because they were either wireless or didn't cut off FM reception. This kit doesn't have either of those drawbacks.) In fact, since it cuts off FM reception, if you assign the frequency of the FM station you listen to the most, when you want to make or receive a call and you're already listening to that station, you simply press the dash-mounted control button. You don't even have to touch the radio. **If you are listening to the station this device is assigned to, Caller ID is displayed on the screen (if your radio is RDS capable) and the phone will ring over the speakers in the car as well. You must be on the preset assigned to this device though. If you aren't, you will get the text and sound as soon as you press the appropriate preset.** (Note: If you're using the 3.5mm aux connection option to pipe the sound to your radio, you won't even be using the RF feature, so the reception cut-off statement will not apply in that situation. However, you would have to press the appropriate Aux button on your radio before making/receiving a call if you're using aux connection instead of FM.) Check out the demo video below.
This kit also supports VR for both Android and iPhone devices. (May require installation of a free App that corresponds to your device type.) With VR, you can press the dash-mounted control button, then issue basic commands to send text messages, make phone calls, play music, use your phone's navigation App and more. All without touching the phone. Your phone (via the car's speakers) will ask you to confirm your choices, just like it would if you were handling it manually. Check out the demo video below.
This kit supports A2DP wireless technology. This allows you to stream music wirelessly from any phone that supports A2DP. (Most Android phones from the last few years and all iPhones, except the original version, support this feature. A few non-smartphones do as well. Double check if you're unsure.) You can skip forward to the next song while in streaming mode by pressing the dash-mounted control button. If you've got an iPhone, song and artist text are displayed on the radio as well. (Provided the radio is RDS capable.) This is a great way to listen to your music selection OR music APPS like Pandora. (Data charges still apply for use of an APP over a cellular network.) If you make or receive a call while streaming music, it will return you to the music once the call is disconnected. Check out the demo video below.
