Griffin SmartTalk Solar Bluetooth Speaker Kit for Car

Have you been meaning to go hands free while driving but just couldn’t abide another wire hanging down? Well, here comes Griffin Technology to the rescue with its compact and efficient SmartTalk Solar Bluetooth Speakerphone ($69.99).

This nifty little speaker slides into a transparent plastic holder, which sticks to your windshield by means of two small suction cups. It measures 4 inches by 2 inches, so it has a small footprint on your windshield and won’t block your view.

In case you have to endure arctic winters or drive through a lot of tunnels, the kit also comes with a car charger, but under normal circumstances solar charging is sufficient.

Pairing the speaker to your phone is a breeze and works seamlessly. Once set up, every time you get in the car a sensor turns the device on and pairs it automatically so it's ready to make you hands free. If it doesn’t sense any motion for ten minutes, it will go into standby mode to conserve the battery. Sweet.

If you like to talk and drive, which isn’t a good idea, or you live in a state where it is illegal, which is a good idea, you would be well served to acquire one of these accoutrements.

It works with your phone’s voice command features to do your bidding so you can keep your eyes on the road.
