Funkwerk Americas, a leading provider of in-vehicle Bluetooth hands-free mobile communications, multimedia and entertainment solutions, today introduced three exciting new enhancements to its line of EGO Bluetooth hands-free multimedia car kits.
The latest additions to the EGO portfolio will be revealed at CTIA Wireless 2008, Apr. 1-3, in booth #5165 North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center and are as follows:
EGO CUP FM: Similar to the existing EGO CUP, the EGO CUP FM is designed for easy self-installation by placing it into a cup holder or “velcroing” it to the dashboard and connecting the cigarette lighter adapter. EGO CUP FM is used to make and receive calls hands-free, while listening to music directly through the car stereo, e.g. from cell phone, iPod or MP3 player. Key features include Bluetooth audio streaming (A2DP/AVRCP), FM Transmitter, DSP technology for outstanding noise and echo cancellation. EGO CUP FM will be available summer 2008.
Real Apple iPod and iPhone Integration: Say goodbye to fumbling around with an iPod or iPhone while driving. With the new add-on, consumers will be able to charge and control their iPod through the EGO FLASH and EGO LOOK. Additional benefits include an automatic pause and resume playback music feature during active calls. The EGO iPod Adapter will be available summer 2008.
Read Out Text Messages: The EGO FLASH and EGO LOOK will have the ability to read out incoming SMS messages from Bluetooth enabled cell phones over the car’s stereo system. This text-to-speech feature will be available in both products late-spring 2008.
The EGO product line is comprised of the EGO CUP, EGO CUP FM, EGO TALK, EGO FLASH, EGO LOOK, and EGO DRIVE. Funkwerk’s EGO Bluetooth hands-free systems offer a blend of style and range of advanced features to enable motorists to safely enjoy the full convenience of mobile technologies and comply with hands-free legislation.
The EGO product line is designed and made in Germany. Highest manufacturing standards exceed all automotive industry requirements.
