Headset Gives Truck Drivers Hands-Free Cell Phone Use
Each year more states and provinces enact restrictions on the use of hand-held cell phones while driving. That’s why more truck drivers are looking at hands-free options to answer calls on their cell phones while out on the road.
Renton, WA-based PACCAR Parts introduces the MIRREX Bluetooth-enabled headset designed specifically for the truck environment. The headset features noise cancellation technology that filters out background sound.
Its rechargeable lithium battery offers up to 14 hours of talk time and 20 days of standby time per charge. The kit includes two chargers, a 12-volt vehicle charger and a 110-volt home charger. Drivers can adjust the boom microphone to work for them whether they’re right-handed or left-handed. The cushioned earpiece and adjustable headband makes it easy for drivers, especially those who wear glasses, to wear the headset and talk for hours without fatigue.
Three multi-function buttons on the side of the headset offer drivers fingertip control of volume and a number of calling features, including last number redial, call transfer and voice dial with cell phones with voice recognition.
