Legal and Safe Driving while talking on Cell Phone with Bluetooth Enabled Wireless Headset

November 4th, 2005

Legal and Safe Driving while talking on cell phone with Bluetooth Enabled Wireless Headset

Motorola HS820 headset

With the so many people on the cell phone today it is common to see drivers talking on the phone while driving.  Laws are rapidly changing to ban the uses of handheld devices while driving.  Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania all have bans for use of cell phones to varying degrees.  Other states have limits for school bus drivers, and drivers under 21 and 18 years of age.  It is not just in the United States, 25 countries have banned the use of hand held cell phones while driving.

In New Jersey, for example, last summer they have passed a law that said that a hand held phone while driving was banned.  Gov. Richard J. Codey, is in the process of introducing legislation to make it a primary offense.  If the law passes it will make it so you get a ticket just for talking on the cell phone when driving.  You can get a ticket currently but it is a secondary offense and you would have to be doing something else wrong in order to get pulled over.

 

The state of Minnesota has an all out ban on cell phones while driving; the law says “Provisional driver may not operate a vehicle while using a cell phone”.  (eff. 1/06).  The other states will permit cell phone if it is not being held to your ear.   You can still use a cell phone driving if you use a headset.  The wireless headsets are popular due to the new Bluetooth technology.  With the combination of the Bluetooth technology in your cell phone and headset it allows your headset to automatically connect to your cell phone without any set up.

 

Motorola HS850

Bluetooth technology offers a secure connection when using wireless technology.  A cell phone must have the Bluetooth technology built into it if you are looking at the wireless Bluetooth enabled headsets.  Headsets are not the only use for the wireless Bluetooth technology; there are currently over 1,000 different manufacturing applications using the Bluetooth technology.  For example, automobiles are using the Bluetooth wireless technology to build cell phone connection through the car radio.  Computers are using the technology for wireless keyboards, networking and speakers.  GPS devices, medical equipment, music devices, handheld scanners are just some more applications installing the Bluetooth wireless technology.

Wireless headsets offer the freedom of movement compared to traditional headsets.  They will last longer as the wires often get damaged easily.  The Bluetooth technology offers clear sound transmission.

 

Features to look for are the battery talk time and the distance for the set to be away from the phone and still work.  Also a consideration is the weight of the unit, as some customer complains of the discomfort of the weight on their ear.  Sometimes the customer’s ears are smaller than others and headsets do not fit them well.  They were not happy with the bulk of some, and the complaints were based on connection problems with their cell phone.

After looking over many of the different models out there, here are some that showed some customer satisfaction on Amazon's website.
