The Best You Can Get

  • Parrot MK6100

    Mark says: Most of the technology in this hands-free car kit is hidden away, leaving just a small remote control and a high-definition display. And you can remove the screen for security at the end of your journey!

    There’s voice recognition to help you make cell phone calls without taking your eyes off the road… and there’s even stereo Bluetooth compatibility to play music from your mobile using your car’s audio system.

    In addition, there’s text-to-speech functionality that’ll read SMS text messages to you – and there’s a 2.8-inch touch-sensitive screen to help you set everything up.
