Default Blu tooth

Wife has a 2002 kq laser and wanted to know what hands free blue tooth kits are great to use in her car for taking phone calls. Thanks

Depends what you want. I like the Jabra units for their clean interface that just shows you who is calling and the quality of the audio as they use their own speaker but they do have to be installed.

There are a range of other units - some just a simple sunvisor mount with a built in speaker that require no installation through to FM units that use a frequency on the FM radio and often can make use of other phone capabilities like streaming music.

If you want something cheap and effective the Bluetooth FM Transmitters do a great job. The just broadcast whatever they receive via bluetooth to a selectable FM frequency of your choice.

I bought one for Dad 3 or 4 years ago and he cant live without it. Apart from using it as a handsfree phone device he plays his internet radio through it morning and evening.

This is not specifically the one I got for Dad, but looks exactly the same.

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/403071128169

It functions as a handsfree very well. Microphone quality is about the same as the old Nokia kits I used to have. Sound reproduction is pretty good too.

Although they can be a little hit and miss. I got one that looks almost the same as Dads and while it still does a great job the sound reproduction isn't as good. Is a little bit tinny. But it only cost me $14 so no worry, I'll replace it with something better at some stage.

Jump on ebay and search for "fm bluetooth transmitter" and you'll get a ton of responses and different styles for between $10 and $25.

If you want something quicker locally, Jaycar and places like that sell them. But expect to pay $40 to $50 mark.
