Road safety is no different so when I was asked if I'd like to become a safety and security tester for Tesco Compare, well I jumped at the chance! It drives me absolutely batty when I see people on their phone whilst driving-I always pass over a disapproving look, or even a point of the finger, yeah, you do't want to mess with me!
I was sent a Tom Tom Handsfree car kit for smartphones* to test out and was actually rather looking forward to giving it a go!
Now, I'll be honest, it was quite infuriating to set up (well for me it was) - the instructions are extremely basic and my language of choice is currently set to French and I have no idea how to get it back to English. I've managed to change it from German at least, but have no idea how I did that. To be honest it's pretty straightforward though so you don't really need to know what the lovely lady who know's many languages is actually saying!
Once I had my phone connected, I popped it on to my dashboard and took the car out for a spin - with the other half left at home awaiting my call! The call was pretty easy to make and the sound was very clear indeed - I have found in the past that the sound can be quite naff with handsfree sets, but I was pleasantly surprised with the quality.
It can be used without the phone in the cradle too!
I've been using it for over a week now and rather enjoying the latest edition to my little Giuseppe.
