#1 of 358 Bluetooth Technology
Nov 19, 2004 (12:27 pm)
Sometimes referred to as "Personal Area Networks" this short-range radio frequency interconnect technology is all the rage with drivers.
Here's the place to discuss Bluetooth!

ok, nobody cares?
#4 of 358 I think people would "care" if they knew this site existed

I have just found this site...I care...I want to know/learn more about bluetooth...
Specifically...related to automobiles and Acura (RL & TL).

I just got a Kensington wireless finder plus gizmo for finding wifi hot spots (saves having to turn the laptop on).
It also sniffs for Bluetooth, but I haven't had that light illuminate yet.

OK - I'm another bluetooth user - hooked on my Moto V600 and Jabra BT250 headset (I've had people think I'm 'secret service' when I wear it!)...
Are there any recommendations for bluetooth car audio systems - radio / CD combined with bluetooth phone?
...or one step further - any (non built-in) systems that include radio / navigation with bluetooth (dialing and personal directions from the nav screen)?
Thanks for any info!

Just noticed this site. One suggestion, Steve, could you list the Forum also under Acura TL and RL? I read a lot discussions about Bluetooth under TL forum and people had no place but to post them under Navigation forum.
I love the Bluetooth HandsFree in my wife's TL so much, I went search and bought a Motorola portable speaker HF800 for myself. And it turns out to be even easier to use than TL's, but of course the sound quality not as good. I think Hands-free speaker would be one of the best application of Bluetooth.

Hi njawdriver, you might like to check out the Motorola HF800 speaker which is a portable one I enjoy using in my old car. Sony Ericsson and Motorolla also make the systems you permanantly install in the car, using your car stereo's speakers.
Acura TL and the new RL has this system built in. And they are nice you can talk and drive without the headset in your ear. Mercedes has the handfree system for long but did not use the Bluetooth and you have to have the right phone to plug in a socket. With Bluetooth, you just have your phone in your pocket, and it hooks up as soon as you get into the car.

Great suggestion! (d'oh).
