In-Vehicle Bluetooth® Technology | Credit Union Auto Buying Service | Winston-Salem, NC
Bluetooth® has been around for awhile now, but it’s only in the past decade or so that the technology has rose to prominence inside of automobiles. It allows for a new level of convenience, giving drivers the ability to wirelessly connect their smartphones to their vehicle, so they can send texts, make calls, and stream music while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
There are a number of ways to access and use Bluetooth® features. Most Bluetooth® systems use steering wheel-mounted controls so that users have a way of accessing features without voice command. Of course, voice activation is the main appeal of Bluetooth®, eliminating the need for manually dialing your cell phone on the road or messing with the radio.
No matter how you access Bluetooth® in your vehicle, this technology’s capabilities are the same. It provides the ability to access your phone address book, dial and call numbers, redial missed calls, check voicemails, and sometimes even send and receive messages through speech-to-text functionality. Some Bluetooth® assistants will even read text messages out loud to drivers. These functions not only make the daily commute more convenient, but also help keep roads safe by preventing drivers from taking their attention away from the road.
When connecting your smartphone to Bluetooth®, a whole world of new features opens up to you. It becomes easy to stream your favorite music from your mobile device to your vehicle’s speakers, or access particular apps on the go, such as navigation apps or audio books. Some more high-end Bluetooth® systems even allows you to check your social media feed, which some versions of the system read aloud to you.
