Hands Free Kits


Recommended Posts

I currently have a Nokia 3330 mobile and want to fit an inexpensive hands free car kit. Has anybody fitted one themselves? If so how easy was it to fit and how satisfactory and convenient is it to use? I rarely use the phone at all in the car so i dont want to spend much on a system. If it was reasonably easy i would fit it myself. I would be grateful for any advice, suggestions, tips etc.

I have one of these.

Try this:

Plug-in HF Car Kit

Easy-to-use handsfree car kit with no buttons to press and charging function, includes built-in speaker: uses phone microphone but also has connector for external microphone (HFM-8).

http://www.nokia.co.uk/nokia/0,,19022,00.html It’s the last item on the page

I got one from the Carphone Warehouse.

It was £49.99 which is a bit steep but it’s compatible with a lot of Nokia’s and it has excellent build and sound quality.

You can set your phone to “Auto” answer with the handsfree attached so you never have to touch your phone while driving.

Hope this helps.

It’s not always legal or safe to do so, on a motorway for example, or stuck in traffic, on a duel carriageway, traffic lights, islands the list goes on and on, hence the advice of the hands free from Nokia.

It is compatible with a wide range of Nokia phones and if you change your car or use some one else’s you can take it with you.

A one off purchase.

Thanks for replies. A hands free adaptor will not fit into the cars cig lighter cos it will get in the way of the flip facia panel of a Kenwood head unit. Also the hands free kit needs to be a universal type as more than one type of phone will be used in it such as a Samsung E700 flip type. Any other suggestions please?

My Husband has a Nokia and bought a handsfree you plug into the cigar lighter - you just pop the phone in it and it also charges the phone and has a built in mic or you can attach another one but it didn't need it. It cost £15.00 from a non main phone shop he had the same problem of where the position of the cigar lighter was so he just fitted another cigar ligher in a better place total cost was about £30.

Try a bluetooth Ear Piece. Can't recall now though if the 3330 has blue tooth...so may be totally irrelvant!

But doing this means there's no install...no wires...no fuss. and you can use it with any bluetooth enabled phone. Cost about £75 quid though.

Oh...and you look silly with it stuck in ya ear all the time...as naturally..with the new laws...you can't put the ear piece/mic comi in ya ear..when you want to make a call when on the move.

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
