The new Nokia Wireless Plug-in Car Handsfree

Düsseldorf, Germany/Espoo, Finland - With the new Wireless Plug-in Car Handsfree HF-6W Nokia is bringing the field of in-car communication solutions on a new level by introducing Speech Tracking Technology with the aim of attaining sound quality excellence*. The exceptional audio clarity is achieved by using an array of four microphones. The concept of multiple microphones is widely used in recording studios. Thanks to Nokia advanced software algorithms it is possible to discern the speaker and largely eliminate the background noise.

Uwe Schmitz, Senior Product Manager, Nokia Automotive says, "The easy-to-install Nokia Wireless Plug-in Car Handsfree sets new standards in audio quality with the first ever use of Speech Tracking Technology in such class of device. Like all Nokia Automotive products it looks good, is easy to use and provides value for money."

To install the Nokia Wireless Plug-in Car Handsfree is simple, it just plugs into the vehicles's cigarette lighter socket and connects to a compatible mobile phone wirelessly using Bluetooth** technology.

In addition to the basic speech functions such as answering a call, ending a conversation and adjusting the volume, the integrated features also include a small charger cable for compatible mobile phones***. When charging is completed, remove the cable from the phone and it will automatically retract into the housing, just like the power cord on your vacuum cleaner.
