As I have mentioned before, I learned how to drive in Spain and that is also where I got my first driver’s license. For that same reason I got used to their driving laws and regulations and one very strict law is not to use the cell phone while you are driving unless you have a blue tooth device and the penalties for breaking this law can be really costly. Personally, I think that it is a great law. I truly believe that your concentration is not the same when you are holding a phone to your ear. And if I had any doubts, they were erased a couple of years ago when my father in-law was hit by a car while crossing a street while having the right of way…….The driver was on the phone and didn’t see the people going across! (Luckily he survived with minor injuries). Looking for the ringing cell phone while driving is another thing that can be a distraction. Any yet the worst has to be texting while you are driving!
My husband is the kind of person that thinks that you are supposed to do all the phone calls you have pending while you are driving. I guess it is his own idea of multi-tasking……It drives me nuts when he does that, so when I recently had the chance to try one of the Motorola’s latest hands-free devices, the H17txt with Motospeak I was beyond happy. We got it a few months ago and love it so much that when my husband lost the one he had, he bought another one…I even bought one for my brother!
This father’s day I want to bring you another great Motorola Hands free product. The MOTOROLA ROADSTER Bluetooth Car Kit. The Roadster allows you to make and receive phone calls and play music from your phone while without taking your hands off the steering wheel…This is a great option for people who do not like wearing an ear piece.
The Roadster also allows you to simultaneously connect with two phones, hear caller’s name or number, and use your voice to answer or ignore calls( I love this option as you do not have to even look at the unit to start your conversation). You can also switch between your FM radio and car kit speaker. Another great feature on this unit is the voice prompts that guide you on connections, battery level, and other functions……Once you set up the Roadster which by the way is really simple ( I did it myself in no more than a few seconds), the voice prompts come up as soon as I get in the car and clearly let me know when I am receiving a phone call.
I have received numerous calls with no problem on either end and that includes long distance calls.
The Roadster has some really neat features….Some are phone/network dependent.
The first time you use your Roadster you should charge it for at least 6 hours ( I charged it at home with the home electric charger that is included in the package. The Roadster also uses status lights to quickly let you know what is going on with your unit.
So what the Motorola Roadster basically does for you is combine Bluetooth connectivity and FM transmission to create a device that’s useful for a lot more than just phone calls. The audio streaming lets you to listen to music, and to take advantage of Motorola’s MotoSpeak Android and BlackBerry apps that converts text messages in to voice massages and the speaker is loud and clear, so you can be heard and hear over road noise. This is a must for people that are on the road and for safe everyday use of your cell phone.
This is a great product at a great price, you can find the roadster for 99.00 at the Motorola online store and authorized retailers across the US.
