If your car stereo system doesn’t have Bluetooth capability, you’re missing out on one of today’s most powerful and in-demand technologies.
Not only can Bluetooth integration provide you with a variety of communication and entertainment options in your vehicle but it’s also one of the most effective ways to stay safe behind the wheel.
Safe, Handsfree Phone Calls with Bluetooth Audio Integration
When you add Bluetooth to your vehicle, you gain the ability to make and receive phone calls in the car without ever taking your hands off the wheel.
You will hear the caller’s voice through your car stereo speakers. An innocuous but sensitive microphone picks up your voice, allowing you to have a safe, natural-sounding phone conversation.
Automated attendants, either through your phone or integrated into the car stereo system, allow you to make calls using voice commands. You can also send and receive SMS (text) messages in the same way.
Use Bluetooth Audio to Access GPS Driving Directions
Another potential safety issue relates to accessing GPS maps and driving directions on your smartphone or other device.
When you integrate Bluetooth connectivity with your car stereo system, your GPS system will provide step-by-step driving directions through your speakers. This ensures that you never have to look away from the road or take your hands off the wheel.
Stream Audio Content Via Bluetooth Connectivity
You can use your car’s audio system to stream content of all types, including music, podcasts, audiobooks and more.
You can listen to content downloaded to your device or use streaming services like Pandora and Spotify. You can listen to the live audio feed from sporting events, news outlets and more.
You have the option of pairing multiple smartphones and devices to your vehicle’s sound system. That means that the driver and passengers can all stream content, depending on what you want to listen to.
Integrating Bluetooth Connectivity with Your Car Audio System
Utah’s distracted driving laws currently prohibit texting and driving. This legislation has been looked at by many a Texting While Driving Accident Attorney specialist in the time it has been active. However, the state legislature has repeatedly put forth laws to ban any manual manipulation of smartphones while driving. You can safely assume that our state – like many U.S. states already have – will implement a handsfree law in the near future.
Even without a law on the books, you can reduce distracted driving and improve safety by adding this technology to your vehicle. If you have young drivers in your household, this is even more imperative. So many accidents are caused by drivers using their phones at the same time that they should be focusing on the road. In some serious cases, distracted driving has caused other road users to become seriously injured, and some people have even passed away due to another person’s reckless driving. If you know anyone who has passed away at the hands of someone else’s negligent driving, you could claim for wrongful death compensation. It might be worth getting in touch with Valiente Mott, for example, to see if they can offer any legal advice to help you with a wrongful death claim. To prevent this sort of thing from happening, more drivers should put their phones down and drive carefully. You shouldn’t be putting other people at risk.
