Something useful with Bluetooth. Who’da thunk?

The Parrot CK3000 Evolution is a bluetooth enabled device that makes taking and making telephone calls in your car as easy as stealing candy from a baby. Essentially, the professional-installation-only system syncs with your bluetooth enabled cell and responds to voice commands. Say “Call Cindy” and it’ll call you for. It’s then retransmit the conversation via the car’s sound system in full duplex, with noise reduction.

A call coming in? It’ll display the number and any associated picture, for you to decide whether to take it or ignore it.

If two more people in the car also have Bluetooth enabled cells, it doesn’t get phased and allows up to three people to call (no mention of what happens with 4 or more).

Really very useful if you’re the kind of person who needs to have both hands glued to the wheel at all times.

Now, I’m a lazy sloth, and I didn’t look very hard. I couldn’t find a price. Silly me. You try, right here. Story VIA Gadgetmadness.

  3. I hae had a CK3000 installed in my Toyota Echo 2005. Everything works fine except I can not route it through my car audio system. I tried an external speaker, but the sound is way to low . Can someone suggest how I would go about connecting it thru the car radio like it was meant to be.
