Freeway may be the best Bluetooth hands free device yet
Jabra has been offering up some of the coolest and most useful Bluetooth hands free devices for years for mobile phone users. The company has a full line of stylish and high performance Bluetooth headsets and they have a ton of different Bluetooth speaker phones too. For me the better device for use in the car is the speakerphone, I hate wearing BT headsets.

Jabra's latest Bluetooth speakerphone is a new device called the Freeway that is designed to be mounted in the car on your visor. The device will connect to any Bluetooth mobile phone to let you answer and take calls without having to take your eyes off the road and without having to hold your phone to your ear. In many states and cities, the use of a hands free device is a law and without one, you could get a ticket.
Not all hands free devices are created equal, some of them are junk. The new Freeway promises to be one of the better devices on the market with three speakers that create virtual surround sound allowing you to hear better while you drive. The device supports voice dialing, if your smartphone has that feature, and will tell you the name of the caller aloud from the caller ID info.
The Freeway also has voice guidance that will tell you how to pair the device with a phone and will tell you the connection status or battery level as well. It can connect to two phones at one time so you and your passenger can use it. It also supports A2DP streaming.

You might not think that streaming feature is a big deal, but if you use your smartphone for GPS navigation and you have a hard time hearing the spoken directions from the app, A2DP is a must. The battery inside the device is good for 14 hours of talk and up to 40 days on standby. The Freeway comes with a year subscription to Voice Assist. This app allows you to send and respond to text and email using just your voice. The device will land in May for $129.
