The HF850 Bluetooth Car Kit by Motorola mounts to your car to provide a permanent hands-free solution. The car kit includes a microphone and speaker and is compatible with most Bluetooth enabled phones. It connects automatically to your phone, once you've completed the steps for pairing. Because the HF850 needs to be connected to your vehicle's fuse box and stereo system, it is wise to consult a professional to assist you with this process unless you have professional-level experience yourself.
