Our take on the Blaupunkt BPTRN420MIC

by Ken Nail
Blaupunkt

Improve call clarity

Blaupunkt's Toronto 420 CD receiver features a built-in microphone for Bluetooth calling, but conversation can be difficult in some cars. If you drive a convertible or any vehicle with a noisy interior, adding this external microphone will ensure that your contacts hear you loud and clear. Just plug the cable into the jack on the rear of the Toronto, then place the mic in a good location. The 7.75' cord is long enough to make routing easy. Warranty: 1 year.

Features

External Microphone: This external microphone (BPTRN420MIC) is designed to work with compatible Blaupunkt head units or other Bluetooth-enabled head units that feature a 2.5mm mic input. The external microphone enables you to mount the mic closer to the driver and provides improved voice pick up, when compared to the integrated mic on the front-panel of a head unit. The BPTRN420MIC features an attached 9.75' cable that is terminated by a male 2.5mm connector which plugs into the 2.5mm mic input on the back of your compatible head unit.

Note: No mounting bracket or hardware is included with the external mic. Use a small piece of two-sided 3M tape (not included) to secure the mic to the driver pillar or your dash.

This the best 10 bucks I have ever spent! My wife has a 50 minute commute and also travels for work. Now that she has this bluetooth she is talking handsfree and so much safer! Thank you. The voice quality is great!

A must

Written By Jeffrey, MA on Friday, February 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Easy to install. The wire was sufficiently long to reach all the way to the a pillar in a relatively large vehicle. Not sensitive enough to pick up every ambient noise which is a good thing.
Pros:
Worthy addition to Toronto 420. The built in mic is ineffective.
Cons:
None.

Untested

Written By Steve W, Maywood, NJ on Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I am pleased with the entire upgrade that I have done with the help of Crutchfield. I have not yet had opportunity to test this product, as the built in microphone in the radio has thus far been adequate. I bought this anticipating that I will remove the radio and attach this in the back of the unit(along with a rear USB based wire to charge the phone). The slots are there, so I decided to try to use them.
Pros:
Moves the microphone closer to the driver, makes the voice clearer to the person at the other end.
Cons:
None yet, but I expect that it will over-ride the built in microphone. It may turn out to be overkill.
