I enjoy my Boxster as much now as I did 15 years and 207K miles ago when I drove it out of the show room floor. Now its time to get a hands free cell phone solution. Anyone have experience upgrading? I have the standard becker radio and six speakers (floor, dash and rear storage console).

A set of high quality, wired. earbuds or phones. best if with a boom mic.

If bluetooth is essential, i like the Delton over-head, boom mic unit.

Although it is seldom, if ever, enforced, in FL it is (or was, the last time I looked) illegal to drive with headphones/earbuds in. I will never do that - if I had I wouldn't be here today. I was stopped at an traffic light controlled intersection. The traffic coming toward me got a left turn indication first, so that the light had been red for the cross street for some time. Just as the light turned green for me, I heard tire noise approaching from my left. Just as I would have been in the middle of the intersection a car came blowing through running the red light. I would have been t-boned in the drivers door, at a fairly high rate of speed. I doubt I would have survived. No headphones or earbuds for me while driving.

We have a couple of solutions that work very well with the CDR or PCM system ( prior to PCM 2.1 )

TranzItBlu Hands free bluetooth streaming (music and calls), requires antenna adapter too
Dension CompactBT universal handsfree bluetooth solution (does not require tapping antenna, uses combination modulation - far better than the old crappy stuff - and bluetooth). Streaming music and calls.

Click HERE for more info.
If you want to maintain your Becker, I may still have a Parrot system that I pulled out when my CDR-220 front panel died. If I can find it, I'll send it to you for postage. If you are interested in a complete upgrade, find my thread on my latest project. I pulled the CDR-220, the Parrot BT handsfree, the XM Roady satelite radio and the Garmin GPS I had in the car and replaced them all with an Alpine INE-W960. It was being discontinued and I got it from Best Buy. I'm very satisfied with it. It does Bluetooth hands free, USB integration with iPhone, GPS, and for a for a few dollars more, SiriusXM. The new model has SiriusXM built in, I think.
