Best in-car Bluetooth hands-free kits

Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.

It's illegal to hold a mobile phone and drive; we pick the best Bluetooth hands-free car kits, so you can inform friends that you'll be late or chat about what so-and-so is doing with you-know-who and not be nabbed by the boys and gals in blue.

Our list is headed by not one, not two, but three Editors' Choice hands-free kits. For sheer simplicity, Motorola's T325 gets a call up to this round-up's front page. The Free2Talk BC900 not only looks good and works well, but is also powered by the rays of the sun — something we're never short of in Australia. Among the Motorola Motorokr T505's many plus points is the ability to broadcast, via FM, to your car stereo. Rounding out the list is the Uniden BTSC1500 and its party trick of being able to connect to two phones simultaneously.

BlueAnt S4 with an iPhone4 or 5

It is virtually impossible to hear the voice messages being relayed back from the phone. Making calls in a moving vehicle is almost impossible to make a handsfree call. This may be an Apple problem but I'm not getting much resolution on it. Either way, this combination is not a recommended solution for any slightly noisy environment

What about Jabra Freeway and the Plantronics family.

Absolutely pathetic, Where is the Gizaccto S33? By far the best the world has ever seen. Back to school!

Where is blueants latest offering the S4? it is by far the clearest handsfree i've ever used, not to mention truly handsfree which none of these units are. Where are Parrot units as well? they may be expensive but are solid quality products... Silly...

Sorry Derek, but I completely agree with Darren. 3 just ain't enough.
IMHO, I prefer the Supertooth 3 to any of the car kits. I have one and it works perfectly (ie it catered to my needs). They all have their advantages and disadvantages, but I preferred the S3 overall.

The constant talking of the Supertooth is just soooo annoying
