Highlights of EGO Bluetooth hands-free car kits at SEMA Show 2008 include:
Software 8.0: The new Software 8.0 improves noise and echo suppression and provides higher volume levels for the EGO FLASH and EGO LOOK Bluetooth car kits. It will be available for download at the end of this month through www.egohandsfree.com.
EGO CUP FM: EGO’s latest self-installed “to go” Bluetooth car kit fits in the car cup holder and powers from the 12-volt lighter adapter or the built-in rechargeable battery for hands-free communication. It also comes equipped with features including Caller ID display, Bluetooth audio streaming, stereo auxiliary input for iPods/MP3 players, and a built-in FM transmitter allows calls and music to be heard over the integrated speaker or the car speaker system, as with professionally installed devices.
Text-to-Speech Feature: Both EGO FLASH and EGO LOOK Bluetooth car kits have the ability to read aloud incoming text messages from many Bluetooth cell phones. Text messages are dictated directly via the in-vehicle stereo system.
