Many BMW owners who wind up having to use their cell phones while driving will benefit tremendously from installing a BMW Bluetooth module from Bavarian Soundwerks. A BMW Bluetooth module will add value, functionality, and above all, safety to your vehicle.
Has This Happened to You?
In 2005, a woman in Portland, Oregon was chatting on her cell phone while driving across one of that city’s many bridges. She was so distracted that she lost control of the vehicle, broke through the guardrail and plummeted 60 feet into the Willamette River, where she and her vehicle sank under 55 feet of water. Amazingly, she survived with only minor cuts and bruises.
A man in Indianapolis, Indiana was not so lucky. While talking on his cell phone, he missed a stop sign. He was broadsided by a dump truck and killed instantly. Ironically, he had been talking to a funeral director, making arrangements for his brother who had died similarly the day before, running a red light as he was using a cell phone while trying to drive.
These incidents illustrate the best reason to install a BMW Bluetooth module in your vehicle.
Safety – and Convenience
A BMW Bluetooth module uses technology that is an bluetooth module outgrowth of radio. Using low-band, unlicensed frequencies, Bluetooth protocols allow an astonishing array of digital devices from personal computers to cell phones and even game consoles to communicate with one another securely over short distances (under 100 meters). This makes it ideal for integrating your cell phone with your BMW vehicle’s sound system.
Installing a BMW Bluetooth module allows you to access your cell phone using the buttons on your steering wheel. Data (such as phone numbers) can be displayed on the instrument panel, and you can receive incoming calls over your OEM radio. Voice command allows you to “dial” the number you want to call by simply speaking the numbers – or, if you’ve programmed it, the name of the party you’re trying to reach.
Once your BMW Bluetooth module is installed and you have a compatible headset, you’ll enjoy the convenience and safety of “hands-off” operation. You won’t have to take your eyes off the road nor remove your hands from the steering wheel.
Even More Features
What’s even better about Bavarian Soundwerk’s BMW Bluetooth module is that your cell phone will automatically interrupt any programming that may be playing on the radio – you won’t need to worry about missed calls.
