3 Easy Steps to GPS Handsfree Calls
Cell phones have made it easy to make calls from almost anywhere, including your car. But trying to hold a phone while driving can be dangerous. In some states, it's even illegal. Wired headsets can help you drive more safely while talkin, but if you have a GPS system in your car or would like to get one, you may have another option - GPS hands free calling. Setting up your GPS to allow handsfree mobile calls is easy and means you'll be able to drive more safely while talking on your cell phone. All you need is a Bluetooth-enabled phone, a GPS device and a few minutes of time. Here's how to do it.
Make sure your cell phone is Bluetooth-enabled. Bluetooth is a wireless network standard that lets you connect electronic devices. Most new phones support Bluetooth, but if you're not sure, check the instruction guide or the cell phone manufacturer's web site to see if this feature is offered on your phone.
Check your GPS device to see if it supports handsfree Bluetooth calling. Not all GPS models support mobile calls, so if you already own a GPS system, read the manual. If you're in the market for a new GPS device, be sure to read the product description to find one that offers this feature or see some of the models listed on this page. Devices that are enabled for hands free mobile calls with usually have a built-in microphone and speaker.
Pair your Bluetooth-enabled phone and GPS. Once you're sure your devices are compatible, there's really only one simple step left - connecting the devices wirelessly. Usually this simply involves turning on both devices, placing them close to each other, and adding the cell phone as a permitted device to the GPS unit. You may also need to enter a PIN. For specific instructions on enabling GPS handsfree calling on your GPS device, see the owners manual.
Start making handsfree calls! Once you pair your devices, you should be ready to start chatting away, while keeping both hands safely on the wheel.
