November 8, 2007 Motorola’s latest in-car technology combines a Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone and a Digital FM Transmitter for hands-free phone calls and music streamed to the car stereo. When calls come in, the T505 automatically mutes the music and audibly announces the Caller-ID, so drivers can keep their eyes on the road and echo and noise reduction technology are built-in along with "StationFinder" technology that identifies the best FM connection. When the ride’s over, the T505 can be easily unhooked and taken to another car for the next trip.
The T505 requires no wires or installation - it can simply be clipped to a car’s visor and paired to a compatible Bluetooth device using Motorola’s EasyPair technology - and supports Bluetooth Advanced Audio Delivery, Audio Video Remote Control, Hands-free, and Headset profiles. When the T505 is paired to a stereo Bluetooth phone or MP3 player calls and music are streamed wirelessly to the car stereo via the built-in digital FM transmitter. To ensure a clear connection the T505 also features StationFinder, a technology that announces where the best FM connection can be found on the user’s car radio.
