Don’t fumble with your phone and say goodbye to uncomfortable headsets and earpieces. Most importantly, stay focused on safe driving. Many state laws require you to use a hands-free device if you are driving behind the wheel, and with good reason. The perfect way to stay safe and still carry conversations or stream music in the car is with the use of a hands-free device. Get the convenience of both with the IVE-W555BT!

Place the microphone where it’s convenient for you, such as on the visor, for the best possible sound quality. Other convenient features include secure simple pairing (SSP), call waiting, and icons for phone battery and cellular signal level.
