Smartphone Designed For Use While Driving
The Voyager is a car phone that aims to be more practical as well as safe for vehicle owners.
The device is designed to be a second handset that drivers can simply leave in the car when not in use. However, a twinned SIM card means that users can receive calls on the phone through their existing number. As well as noise reduction and echo cancellation to increase the clarity of speaker phone conversations, the Voyager comes with large physical buttons that are easier to accurately press from a distance than touchscreen keypads. It can be connected to the car’s diagnostics system via Bluetooth, meaning the device alerts drivers if something goes wrong. The phone also comes loaded with apps designed for use by drivers, such as GPS and parking spot locators.
Traditional smartphones aren’t built with the specific aim of being used in vehicles and the Voyager goes some way to ensure that drivers can more easily operate their car phone in a hands-free manner.
