TomTom launches the TomTom Hands Free Car Kit for smartphones with quality audio for loud and clear hands-free calling and navigation.
The new Car Kit features an advanced noise and echo cancellation system, which reduces background noise for the caller and removes ambient noise for the driver.
The company says new mounting options make smartphone use on the move safer and more convenient. The newly designed Car Kit has an adjustable grip to fit any smartphone with or without its cover.
An extendable microphone can be clipped to the sun visor to ensure conversations are louder and clearer.
Meanwhile, TomTom will supply one of the navigation solutions available in Europe on the upgraded Lexus CT 200h, which is Lexus’ first ever five-door compact car. (Read: TomTom MoveOn Navigation System for Lexus Cars)
