Car Radio with Bluetooth

Keeping Safe on the Road with Bluetooth Car Radios

Millions of South Africans are required to be on the road while they work. This also means that a lot of their time is spent behind the wheel of their cars. More than likely people would also like a bit of entertainment while spending hours on end in the car. Thanks to recent technological advancements it is now possible to kill two birds with a single stone, and to be more productive while at the same time being entertained while driving. Investing in a car radio with Bluetooth presents the driver with many benefits that are geared towards the music aficionado and those that have to frequently travel for work.

The car radio with Bluetooth capabilities does not only present a far more resourceful way of getting things done, but it also offers an increased level of safety thanks to many of the tasks you need to perform in the car can now be seen to completely hands free. As expected, this begins with the cell phone. Using your Bluetooth enabled car radio you can accept calls to your cell phone, with sound emanating from the stereo’s speakers. You can maintain your conversation on the phone while still keeping your eyes on the road and both hands on the wheel.

Smartphone GPS Unit

The same principles apply for GPS units. Many of today’s smartphones now come out with GPS capabilities. There is no more need for you to take your eyes off the road to peek at the phone, or strain yourself to hear what is being said. As with the incoming phone calls, the GPS instructions are played through the stereo speakers. You are in control of the volume and can set the level to what’s comfortable and not distracting to your driving. It’s all too easy to become distracted by all the little distractions that can occur in your vehicle and vie for your attention. The Bluetooth enabled car radio can help you to keep your attention on the road, where it belongs.

However, there’s no need to keep it all serious and no play. Sometimes music can be as big of a distraction as phone calls. How often have you removed your eyes and attention from the road to find a specific CD, or shuffle to the song on the playlist you’re after? Many of the modern mp3 players allow users to stream their media via Bluetooth, which means there is no need to fiddle with equipment or plug into auxiliary jacks.

This is of particular concern for drivers who spend a lot of time in the car.
