Bluetooth Car Kits

Updated on September 20, 2011

Be Safe and Legal With Bluetooth Car Kits

Bluetooth car kits are useful for handsfree calling in your car. Some of them also provide a way of enjoying your digital music through your car stereo.

Certainly consumers can also opt for headsets which provide for in-car handsfree calling, but these kits allow you to go headset free.

In addition, many of the kits require no installation. They merely snap onto the visor in your car. This saves time, hassle, and money. You'll find kits on this page that are installation free and those that do require wiring that do-it-yourselfers can complete or have done professionally.

Either way, these Bluetooth car kits can keep you safer and legal.
