This Bluetooth Speakerphone Keeps Your Hands on the Wheel

We all know the dangers of yakking on our mobile phones while driving, but many of us continue to do this on a daily basis. Even among those of us who make use of Bluetooth speakerphones and headsets, there is a significant number who don’t want to have their phones on auto-answer. Yes, I screen my calls and if I don’t recognize the number, the caller gets a healthy dose of voicemail.

The problem with this approach is that you will inevitably have to take your hands off of the steering wheel, if only for a few moments, in order to hit the “call” or “end” button. This just won’t do in terms of safety. The Seecode Bluetooth Handsfree Steering Wheel Kit is quite interesting, because this speakerphone mounts the controls right on your steering wheel. Keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.

In terms of features and functions, it’s all pretty standard with a series of buttons for making and receiving calls, adjusting the volume, and so forth. There’s also a small screen for displaying pertinent information (like your phonebook). It’d be better if it was a heads-up display, but it’s still better than staring down at the passenger seat next to you.

No word on price, but the Seecode steering wheel-mounted Bluetooth speakerphone just got its FCC stamp.
