have you done a stero replacement? If not there are a ton of new head units out which have bluetooth. The panasonics for example have an extra piece (similar to a sat. radio tuner) which you hook up and all your calls come through the head unit. The number actually pops up on the face and the music mutes so you can take the call. I'd look into that setup before running any nasty speakers or mics.

We install them where I work. The only one we install is the Motorola one. They work really well most of the time. There are some compatability issues with some phones, but other than that they work well.

They have a device that clips to the visor that allows you to be handsfree...



It actually has a belt clip so you can be anywhere with it. My dad has it and loves it. Its pretty clear too for being a speakerphone. Only $80 I think.

Good deal. I was thinking of going the Motorola route. Although if it was built into a radio that also had dvd.nav capabilites that would be tempting for me.

I have this Parrot 3200-LS:

Until a recent update from Parrot, my iPhone didn't work very well with it. Now it works great. Not a slick as a new HU, but it was a lot cheaper.
