Handsfree Phone Kits & Bluetooth
With such a large selection of hands free kits to choose from, there are several options to consider when choosing a phone system for your vehicle. All phone kits offer different levels of control and functionality as well as displays/controllers varying in shape, style and size.
We offer a large selection of hands free solutions suitable for both 12 and 24 volt systems.
There are mainly 3 different types of phone kits to choose from:
Fixed / Interchangeable cradle
This type of system comprises of a cradle that is usually situated on the dashboard area and an external antenna system that boosts the phone signal. The main advantages of the fixed system include phone charging and an interchangeable cradle option.
Fixed SIM phone kits are commonly used in commercial and heavy goods vehicles. They do not require a phone to be linked with the system as the kit uses its own dedicated SIM card that is permanently housed within the unit itself.
Bluetooth phone kits are becoming the most popular choice with today’s drivers as they offer maximum flexibility when using multiple phones and for when users regularly change their handset. Carma Automotive offer a large choice of kits varying from a simple answer, end and volume button, to a more advanced kit using a display to show your phonebook, call information and even connect your music device for audio playback.
We can also fit aftermarket Bluetooth phone systems as an OEM style fit. This is ideal if you want to retain the aesthetics of the vehicle’s dashboard and prefer not to have anything on show such as screens, buttons and microphones. Please call us for more information on this.
