Jabra launches the ‘Drive’ in-car speakerphone system in India for Rs 3,999

Jabra has launched its ‘Drive’ in-car speakerphone system in India for Rs 3,999. The Jabra Drive speakerphone can automatically pair up with two mobile devices simultaneously using ‘multi-use’ technology, allowing the driver and passengers to make calls in compliance with hands-free driving laws.

It offers clear audio with echo and noise cancellation (using the DSP or digital signal processing). automatic volume control instantly adjusts the headset’s volume to best suit user’s environment for better sound quality.

Besides this, it also features a voice guidance system that announces battery status and Bluetooth connectivity, while large control buttons for volume and on/off make operation a cinch. With 20 hours of talk time and 30 days of standby time, the Jabra DRIVE is also useful for long journeys, at least on paper. The product packaging includes the Jabra DRIVE, a micro USB cable, in-car charger, clip for visor and a quick start manual.

    The Indian Motor Vehicles Act, 1988/1989 has been amended and the driver / rider of any vehicle / two-wheeler is NOT allowed to use the mobile phone while driving. Apart from this, no accessories including handsfree devices are permitted to be used while driving.

    While I don’t agree with the rules disallowing the use of handsfree or in-dash communications, it is unfortunately the law and it seems strange that Jabra would launch such a device while still being “technically” and if one can pardon the pun – accessory to a felony.
