Our take on the Blaupunkt BT Drive Free 111

by Dominic Devito
Blaupunkt

Convenient hands-free phone operation as you drive

The Blaupunkt BT Drive Free 111 Bluetooth kit makes it easy to make and receive hands-free phone calls in your vehicle through your compatible phone. It pairs easily with your phone with the touch of a button, and can even pair with two devices so you and your passenger can both enjoy its convenience. The Drive Free 111 offers a volume control and one multi-function button to reject, answer, and mute calls. You can talk for up to 10 hours on a single charge. An integrated microphone delivers your voice clearly, and the 111's built-in amplified speaker cuts through road noise so you can hear your callers.

Its compact profile makes it easy to attach to your car's visor with the included mounting clip and stow in your car or slip into your pocket when not in use. 

Note: Compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

Returned

Written By Raidergrode, San Clemente, CA on Sunday, December 02, 2012
 
I believe the product may be well designed but mine just did not work. I had to repeat over and over the name of the person I wished to call. I tried 4 or 5 names which are on my phone. It never got the name correct and I was never able to place a call. The product is being returned.
Pros:
Good idea
Cons:
Doesn't work
