The Commute has restored our faith in hands-free calling - the supposed ability of a hands-free unit to interpret one's spoken instructions, find a contact in a phone address book, and place a call to the right person. It doesn't always work but the Commute has a higher success ratio than anything else we've tried. For a device that costs less than $100, it's quite impressive.
Spring break! Many families will be packing the car and hitting the road for a spring break vacation, and more than likely wanting to bring along some gadgets to pass the time. So how do you keep the family safe, entertained, and active in that cramped car?
To find the clip, go to http://video.channel3000.com/, and on the right side of the page there is a section called "Playlist." Click on "Gadget Guy: Entertainment on the Road." David Viggiano, effectively demonstrates the calling functionality of the Commute. He also notes the product is great for sending texts, e-mails, taking calls and announcing caller names
The $99 BlueAnt Commute speakerphone, much like its cousins, the S4 and the S3, houses the devices controls along a flat surface. Almost all car units I've tested sport physical buttons??and the larger, the better, in my book as it makes using them while driving all the more safe.
For anyone who spends a lot of time in their car, making calls or texting while driving can be very dangerous and actually illegal in many places. The Commute from Blue Ant Wireless, a leader in Bluetooth technology, readily solves this problem.

The BlueAnt Commute works flawlessly! The aspect that surprised me the most, is that no one knew I was on a speakerphone in the car. In fact, they were surprised I was on a Bluetooth device.
After using this product for a couple of days, I can happily say that my temptation to check my phone has completely disappeared. So if you're looking for something to help you with those long car commutes, consider getting the BlueAnt Commute.

Does your car lack a central Bluetooth communications system? Mine does. It seems the model of my car missed the boat on including Bluetooth by one year. But now, BlueAnt, the manufacturer of high-performance, cutting-edge products has introduced a new product, The Commute.
