Just the bluetooth earpiece that by the time it activated and connected the call went to voicemail.  My car is too old for bluetooth (2002) and I'm not sold on the $1,000 cost of putting in a full fledged infotainment system.

Eons ago .... on a planet far away ... no, that's a different story ... I had a Lincoln with the 1st hands free dialing with the cell phone in the arm rest. Talk to the steering wheel kind of thing. When I used to say 'call Debbie' who was my office assistant, it used to get really sci-fi creepy & repeat back 'dddddduuuuuubbEEE' like some Stephen King freak in a cemetary! Stopped using it as it gave me nightmares.

I yelled out an F-Bomb when a truck pulling a utility trailer cut me off. I thought the call disconnected but it had not. That is one reason I do not like talking and driving.

Using the Blue Tooth in my car was a new adventure. Never had it hooked up in Florida. Now back in Chicago, it is a must and driving me crazy! Sounds like an echo chamber and seems cumbersome! So, many of my calls get cut off or dropped!
