Aftermarket Bluetooth Handsfree

Anyone on here have an aftermarket bluetooth handsfree kit in their truck? I've thinking of getting one but I would like some recommendations on what type.

I just installed a Parrot 3100 with the Ford F150 interface cables they sell. Install was pieace of cake--the bluetooth is OUTSTANDING !! Works perfectly with my Motorola RAZR--all features functional.

Wish I'd done a long time ago...

Volume is no problem at all--I don't have to adjust anything if call comes in while driving I look at caller ID and just press the green button and talk.

Beyond that, with the noise cancelling microphone and the associated software callers can't tell that I'm on a hands-free system.

The PARROT sync's everything with my RAZR everytime i get in the car totally automatically and it really was one of the best done install that I've ever purchased and used.

In addition to the above, the folks at Parrot are super nice. My screen would go blank and they promptly sent out a new screen and control unit. No questions asked.

I use the raytel 4200 kit. See www.tellphone.com for info. The mic and processor work terrific and its easy to wire in(most are about the same) you can say a phone number about as fast as humanly possible and it still gets it right every time.

Do mind sharing what the unit cost and did you have to buy anything else such as a vehicle specific harness?

The W200 only works on incoming calls. That's the only drawback.

Yes, I have an '06 F-150 and purchased mine online from BrandMotion at www.brandmotion.com.

It is very clear and people who call me say that they don't hear the road noise,etc.

The Parrot has a small lcd display that repeats everything on the phone display--best feature is the display of incoming phone number--that's the missing item on Motorola and iConnect. It also synchronizes phone book, calls lists everytime you get into the car. I got thier adaptor cable and it mutes radio whenever phone goes active and radio displays "PHONE"--

Great produc/great people--was total plug and play with my Audiophile in 2006 F150/FX4

I am brand new to the site -- and a brand new F-150 owner. I have been reading the different posting regarding aftermarket accessories. I have finally found one I can reply to.
I too, have the hands-free phone unit from Brandmotion. This unit was already installed in the unit I purchased, and am I glad. I am not technically savvy, but this system was simple to program with my existing phone. I am not sure how I functioned before without it or for that matter, my new F-150
