Keep your hands on the steering wheel at all times on your next motoring trip with the new, portable Parrot MINIKIT+ hands-free kit.

The MINIKIT+ manages two Bluetoothenabled mobile phones at the same time and is voice-controlled. So if you have one phone for personal use and another for business calls, it will handle calls to either phone, giving different ring tones to each one.

The MINIKIT+ also automatically synchronises its phonebook with the two connected mobile phones, storing up to 2,000 contacts. If the caller is in the phonebook, it will state their name and you simply say “accept” or “reject” to take or refuse the call. To make a call, just press the unit’s green button to launch the voice recognition and say the name of the contact. It then dials the number automatically.

A vibration sensor switches the unit back on and reconnects to phones when you open the car door. It lets you vocally manage emails and SMS hands-free, using the TextFriendlyTM subscription service which launches soon. Your mobile’s satnav app instructions can also play through its integrated loudspeaker.

The MINIKIT+ attaches to the sun visor via an adjustable elastic strap, for when the
visor is up or down. Available from November, the MRSP is £64.99. www.parrot.com
