Don’t fuss or fiddle with your phone and say goodbye to uncomfortable headsets and earpieces. Most importantly, stay focused on safe driving. Many state laws require you to use a hands-free device if you are driving behind the wheel, and with good reason. The perfect way to stay safe and still carry conversations in the car is with the use of a hands-free device. Get the convenience of both with the CDE-W235BT! This unit is equipped with Bluetoothwireless technology so there is no need for any additional adapters.
This unit comes with all that’s needed forBluetooth convenience. The CDE-W235BT comes with a tuned microphone that’s engineered to reduce noise interference and feedback. This allows optimal placement in your car, for the best possible sound quality.
Making, Taking Calls & Call Waiting
Now, make and take phone calls conveniently. You can set up your cell phone/head unit to automatically answer your calls. Use the supplied microphone to speak, and then listen through your car’s speakers. When a call comes in, your music mutes to carry the phone call. View caller information including caller ID, missed, dialed, and received calls right from the head unit display. If you receive a second call, you can have the first caller wait momentarily by pressing 2 for call waiting mode. Once both calls are finished, the music plays again. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music an enjoyable, convenient driving experience. You can even use the CDE-W235BT’s preset buttons to quickly jump through your phone book, making navigation through large phone books much faster.
Hands-Free Calling Sound Customization
To bring sound balance to your Hands-Free experience, you can adjust the CDE-W235BT’s mic gain, phone output and ring tone volume. If that’s not enough, there are 5 sound quality settings to choose from to get the balance just right for you. This flexibility will make your phone calls a pleasurable experience.
Do you have a large music library on your phone? The CDE-W235BT can stream A2DP and AVRCP music. Not only can it control and stream your music through Bluetooth, it can process your music using its built-in DSP Sound Expansion to ensure you get the best sound you deserve.
Text Message Alert*
Expecting an important text message? The CDE-W235BT can give you a notification on the display with a blinking mail icon indicator for 30 seconds while receiving a text message. The mail icon indicator will remain on if there is an unread message on a connected mobile phone.
