The Parrot 3200 satisfies California wireless law

Wireless hands-free car kits are becoming more popular as States start banning traditional cell phone usage in automobiles. One solution to consider is the Parrot 3200 LS-COLOR that I installed and evaluated last week.

Earlier this month I talked about legislation in California that would ban the use of a cell phone in a car without a hands-free device. The bill became law when California Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger signed it a couple weeks ago and goes into effect in July 2008. I previously mentioned that the iLane device may be a good solution for people who need a wireless device that satisfies this new law. Another alternative that I personally have installed in my truck is the Parrot 3200 LS-COLOR Bluetooth car kit. As you can see in my review, this is a great Bluetooth hands-free solution that is hard wired into your vehicle's speaker system. Parrot also makes the 3400 LS-GPS that is very similar to the 3200, but includes a GPS receiver. Now that such a large state as California has a wireless law coming into effect in 2008 I imagine that makers of wireless solutions will do quite well in 2007.
