    Blue Parrot!!!!!

    And now I guess there is a "Blue Eagle" that is a competitor of Blue Parrot that is very similar, but the Blue Eagle model makes claims of far more battery life. I don't know any body yet that has tested one. As long as my blue parrot is working I'll keep it.

    Both can be found at most TA and Petro truck stops for around $100. The Blue Parrot can be found online for a bit less than that. The Blue Eagle is too new to show up online.

    Hubby has the Plantronics Voyager 510. He loves it. Says that he doesn't know how he survived all this time without it. We got it for around $80 thru Alltel. It came with three different ear tips, so that you could pick the one that fits best.

    This was one of the best inventions for drivers out there. Couple this with the voice recognition capabilities of the phones, and your pretty much eyes on the road, no distractions making calls and receiving them.

    The only question I have is, does the blue tooth eliminate the radiation risk that you get just using the phone. I have to look that up.

    I use a Motorolla HS850. I gotta find a new one because I can't hear #### with it unless I push it up to my ear. I have good hearing too. Maybe its just this particular one and the rest of the 850's are good. I dunno. Anyone know of a louder ear piece?

    Hubby is pretty much hearing impaired, he has to have the TV much louder than the rest of us really care for. And his head set never gives him problems volume wise, so it must be pretty good. The only time that he looses volume, is when the batteries are low.

    Your welcome! One thing that they told him about the charger, don't use the 12v for that particular HS. It ruins the batteries. So he plugs it into his inverter only. So far so good.

    I have a Blue Parrot and the Motor Trend Bluetooth that was on sale at all the Pilots for like 70 bucks. The Blue Parrot is the best, but mine keeps frying batteries. The nice thing about the Motor Trend model is that it can be charged while in use.

    I've fried a few phone batteries too with the 12v.. I rarely use them anymore. Unless its an emergency.

    I can't hear worth a darn and my blue parrot will bust an ear drum before it gets to full volume. Even driving down the road.
