SmartPhone Property Manager (Landlord)#6...YES! I have a Bluetooth!

At  last, both of my cars have bluetooth....now that I have my latest "dog car", both of my cars have bluetooth so that each car can now be "paired" with my cel phone....YEAH!

In addition to being HANDS-FREE, the phone system in my cars (both Lexus) actually extends the range of my cel phone coverage.  Where I used to have dropped cel phone calls, the calls now continue to be connected and clear.

 

NO MORE MESSY EAR BUDS to have to charge and that get lost!  DOUBLE YEAH!

 

NOW that I have this technology whipped...I am on to getting a land line phone set with bluetooth so that I can use my LAND LINE to answer cel phone calls at my home/office.

 

I recently purchased a very small HMDX JAM classic rechargeable speaker with bluetooth...I can use my smartphone Pandora app to play music when I am outside on my deck or porch.  It charges from my computer USB and plays for up to 4 hours.  Great accessory for an Open House in a vacant property!

 

I LVE it when technology gets so simple I can understand it!

Wallace, that sounds like the perfect mix. Is this something you had installed, or did it come with the car?

Hi Wallace.  Does it make listening to books on tape any easier?

No...incoming phone call interrupts the CD and when I hang up the phone (on the NAV touch screen) the CD/books returns....Since I sync'd my Google contacts into the system, it announces who is calling from my contacts.

Wallace, understanding all the new technology can certainly be a challenge!  Bluetooth has really been a big help...I might even go back to driving a manual transmission.

Bluetooth is almost required equipment for real estate professionals. I like the idea of your portable speaker for outside activities.

Wallace, The hands-free service in the car is priceless and keeps me focused on the road. Sounds like you've got it handled!

Sounds like you have a handle for sure Wallace but I will have to see if I can find a 10 year old to do mine for me

My Lexus sales person did mine for me when SHE was doing her familiarization routine for the car...I get one every 2 or 3 years and they do change features....
