Kensington's Winning Play it Products:

Kensington Hands-Free Visor Car Kit for iPhone and Bluetooth® Phones (SKU 33440; SRP $119.99)
Speed dialing and hands-free calling hit the road with the Kensington Hands-Free Visor Car Kit for iPhone and Bluetooth® Phones. Simply clip it on your car's sun visor and pair with your iPhone or Bluetooth enabled phone for one-touch speed dialing of your three favorite numbers and crystal-clear, hands-free talking.

Since many states already have enacted strict laws about driving and talking on mobile phones, the new hands-free support helps users drive and talk not only conveniently and safely - but also legally. Key features include:

  • One Touch for Top Three - Program three frequently dialed numbers to call your favorite people with a single touch while driving.
  • Multi-Driver Friendly - Press the user swap button and the car kit will automatically disconnect from your phone to link to a second or third driver's programmed phone - each with their own three speed dial presets, for up to nine numbers in one vehicle.
  • Clear Conversation - The high-quality speaker, microphone, and patented noise canceling technology offer flawless voice transmission for all communications needed while driving.
  • Easy and Convenient Access - Keep within reach at all times by clipping the Hands-Free Visor Car Kit to your vehicle's sun visor.
  • Talk for Hours - The Hands-Free Visor Car Kit includes two swappable, rechargeable battery packs for approximately 10 hours of talk time each to never worry about running out of power.

"The products we've chosen include everything from cases to skins, speaker systems to earbuds, docks to microphones, car products to wireless products, said Bill Palmer, Publisher if iProng Magazine.
