In-Car Mo­bile Ac­ces­sory

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

It is hardly ad­vis­able to take calls while driv­ing a car. But there are some rel­a­tively safe ways to do so with the help of some great ac­ces­sories.


Blue­tooth head­phones and speak­er­phones can drain the phone’s bat­tery. In case, you are look­ing for a much more con­ve­nient and af­ford­able so­lu­tion, then the Grif­fin Mo­bile Aux ca­ble is a must-buy. This small ca­ble has a 3.5mm pin on both sides with a mic at­tached to one. Sim­ply plug in the mic end to the car speaker’s aux­il­iary ca­ble and con­nect the other end to the phone. This will sim­ply turn your car’s au­dio sys­tem into a speak­er­phone. The call clar­ity over this ac­ces­sory is clear.



Head­sets can be a pain if used for long hours. An in-car Blue­tooth speaker can be a good op­tion. The Su­per­Tooth HD Voice has got a space­ship like de­sign with neatly placed con­trols. Easy to pair with most of the smart­phones, the sound out­put is loud and clear. It even reads the phone­book con­tacts and with ev­ery in­com­ing call no­ti­fies who the caller is. Above all, it has got really good bat­tery backup.


All nav­i­ga­tion de­vices are ac­com­pa­nied by a car mount that holds the de­vices in place. There are sim­i­lar mounts avail­able for smart­phones too. Th­ese mounts are not just re­stricted to a sin­gle de­vice and have ad­justable side arms to grip any phone. There is also a 360-de­gree swivel tip that al­lows land­scape and por­trait view­ing. On the mount, the phone can be used for tak­ing calls on the speak­er­phone or to seek get di­rec­tions over Maps.
