Wirelessly Broadcasts Calls, GPS Navigation and Music from Mobile Phones While You Drive
Plantronics announced the K100 Bluetooth in-car speakerphone, offering a robust combination of advanced audio technology, ease-of-use and enhanced features for convenient, hands-free conversations in the car. The Plantronics K100 features a slim design with a sturdy clip that stays securely in place on the visor. It includes an FM transmitter that gives users the option to hear conversations and other audio through the car's speakers. The Plantronics K100 delivers up to 17 hours of talk time and 15 days of standby time.
The Plantronics K100 includes dual microphones and digital signal processing (DSP) technology that keeps the user's voice sharp and clear, while limiting surrounding noise. Echo-cancellation improves listening on both sides of the call, while a high-quality speaker ensures every call is heard clearly. The Plantronics K100 also includes A2DP technology so users can stream music, podcasts, GPS navigation and more from A2DP-enabled phones, such as the iPhone®, BlackBerry® Torch and DROID by Motorola.
The Plantronics K100 is very easy to setup and use, and features convenient voice alerts for pairing, low-battery, mute, and connection status. A dedicated one-touch mute button with voice confirmation provides confidence that the feature is engaged. Large buttons let you control the K100 while keeping your eyes on the road, and an included handy in-car micro USB charger means the speakerphone never has to leave the car.
