    advise installing a bluetooth in my car!

    I'd like to install a Bluetooth in my car. I've had the parrot till now but to install one for this car will cost me £200 which sounds expensive? Apparently there are plug in Bluetooth for cars which are way cheaper! Anyone had one of these? And are they as clear as a parrot?
    Would really appreciate any advise.
    Thanks

    I got a bluetooth adapter for mine for £6 works a treat from ebay

    Have you thought about buying a new car radio with Bluetooth and more audio features.

    Get the parrot system swapped out .. should cost you circa 60-80 depending on if you need the adapters or not

    No thanks radio is great

    I find the phone with the built-in speaker and mic works OK. I have used a parrot hands free kit and had a car stereo with Bluetooth built-in but all I got was.. What? Say again. I cant here you.. So now I mount phone as close as I can to myself, and go with the hands free loud speaker. All the options are a bit poor I think. Way to much background noise in a car I guess, although with safety in mind, I don't use phone in the car very much these days.

    Never had a problem with the parrot speaker. Thanks for your advice though

    I don't think a cheapy Bluetooth hands free kit will be as good as a Parrot kit; they're expensive for a reason. However, the cheap kits do still do a pretty good job. I got one for my Mum which attaches to the sun visor. The quality is excellent and it's very simple to use. My car has Bluetooth built in through the stereo which is also brilliant but hearing my wife in surround sound is quite scary.

    ​I have a friend with a parrot speaker that fits to sun visor. Think it's closer than any other devise so works ok it seems.
