BlueAnt S4 Car Speakerphone Promotes Safer Driving

BlueAnt S4 Car Speakerphone Promotes Safer Driving

Hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Sounds like such basic advice, doesn't it? Be that as it may, the advent of cell phones has disrupted this most fundamental building block to becoming a good driver and you can't drive down to your local grocery story without seeing someone yapping on their iPhone, Nexus One, or other mobile device. We all do it, which isn't comforting in the least.

That's where BlueAnt comes in, which just unveiled what it claims is the world's first hands-free, voice-controller Bluetooth car speakerphone. And by "hands-free," BlueAnt really means it. To initiate a call, a driver need only blurt out "BlueAnt Speak To Me" followed by the command to activate the phone's voice dialing feature. And when there's an incoming call, the S4 will say the caller's name and ask if you want to take the call or not.



All this is great for making and receiving calls, but it's text messaging while behind the wheel that really frightens us. Here too S4 has you covered. Press a button, say "Start SafeReader," and the S4 will then read aloud all incoming SMS messages and email. Groovy!

BlueAnt says the S4 will carry an MSRP of $100 and be available at Best Buy starting Sunday, May 23, and through AT&T starting June 6.

In car Bluetooth is amazing! At least the built in ones are.

I am not sure about the stand alones. My boss has one, and he loves it.

My car has it built into the sound system. With an incoming call it automatically switches the system, and when you hit the button it picks up. It will dramatically decrease the accidents. As long as the other Dillwads can stop themselves from texting while driving:P

If you don't plan on upgrading your car anytime soon then I would suggest one of these.

Think these things should be made more mandatory, since one cannot stop others from texting while they are driving. Most of the times, you are self conscious and drive normally using your attention to only drive and the other drivers (read texters & phone users) always seem to find you and bang into you. Angry

It's better to have this on the car instead of having your phone on the other hand while cruising a long the busiest streets of the metro. Got to give them credit for having this technology on the car. honda accord parts should have this gadget as a standard feature. I like to have this one on my car too.

We use a product like this from Motorola. Works well, speaker and mic quality are good for calling. Not sure why in the world someone would text while driving, no one drives with their eyes closed.

Cool devise! Practical, small and safe. I should have this one. But how about if it's windy or music plays? Will it understand "BlueAnt Speak To Me"? I'm not sure about it..

you all need all the safety features in a car! But this one would like be a hand off unit that would help you talk without holding your phone.
