Bluetooth Cars

May 12, 2004 | Comments Off

Tonight I saw a commercial for a car from Acura (I think) that comes bluetooth “enabled”. Which got me thinking about the following. All cars should come wired for handsfree operation, including integrated mic (above the driver’s seat) and integrated with the audio system. It doesn’t have to be bluetooth, since most phones aren’t, but extra points for supporting both. The interface could be as simple as a minijack (the same size as phone use) with an adapter cable that plugs between the phone and the jack.

At any rate, this also led me to start wondering about what percentage of drivers have cell phones with them. Then again, car manufacturers having pretty long development pipelines, so maybe someone has already thought of this.
