HTC One Car Kit brings its sleek design and functionality to the road: Review

Summary: T-Mobile USA is giving away the HTC Car Kit with an HTC One purchase, and after spending a couple weeks with it, I find it to be an essential accessory. It works well and is priced right, at just $60.

  • Bluetooth...

    Last Christmas took the family on vacation and, because I'm probably the cheapest human being alive, rented the smallest car that the local no-name-rental company offered. It was a Toyota Corolla, with very basic amenities and a very basic radio. I did notice, to my surprise and delight that the radio had bluetooth. And once I paired my phone I was further delighted to discover that the radio also featured A2DP. So not only was I able to take calls, I was able to play music through the stereo and use Google maps for navigation, with turn prompts muting my music.

    The future is here and it is awesome.

  • Doe it fit a HTC One with a case on it?

    I really like the look and functionality bit I have a care on mine.
    Is there any adjustments or adapters to use the kit with a case on the phone?
