DriveBlue Bluetooth handsfree car kit launched in the US
Parrot introduced the DriveBlue (read our ) in the US market. This Bluetooth hands-free car kit requires no installation. Simply plug the device into the cigarette lighter to have a safe cordless experience.

"DriveBlue is a critical breakthrough for the hands-free market," said Christophe Dissaux, Executive Vice President of Parrot, Inc. "DriveBlue is portable so you can take it from car to car," Dissaux added.

When plugged into a car's cigarette lighter, DriveBlue instantly and wirelessly provides advanced hands-free functionality without the installation constraints of other Bluetooth car systems. Ready-to-use and portable, DriveBlue features are:

  • Installation-free: Plugs into any car's cigarette lighter
  • Universal: Compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled phones regardless of carrier
  • Voice recognition dialing: Speed dial from your DriveBlue or phone memory
  • Compact design: lightweight unit with speaker and buttons
  • Automatic connection in Full Duplex mode
  • Digital Signal Processor: Noise reduction, echo cancellation
  • Software upgrade: Maintain high level of features with newest phones

    Based on Bluetooth wireless technology, which allows differing electronic devices to "speak" to each other, DriveBlue establishes a short-range radio connection using one of the phone's audio profiles: Headset or Hands-free. With a range of 10m (33 ft), the connection provides remote hands-free control of phone and audio channel. DriveBlue retails for $99. Other Parrot products include theCK3000, a Bluetooth car kit. The CK3000 is hardwired to a car's stereo speakers for maximum audio quality.

    Parrot also says that the week of 24 May was designated Wireless Safety Week by CTIA, to focus attention on how wireless technology serves personal and public safety.
