LAS VEGAS - Lectronix, Inc. entered a new relationship with Bluetooth specialist Parrot to bring wireless solutions to the commercial trucking industry.

The two companies will collaborate on integrating Parrot's CK5050 OEM Bluetooth hands free kit into the Lectronix Navion T7000 in-dash driver information system. The Lectronix Navion T7000 will now include as a standard element the Parrot Bluetooth hands free solution for Bluetooth enabled cellular phone integration.

The Parrot Bluetooth solution together with the Lectronix Navion T7000 means that users can have a hands-free cell phone call by wirelessly connecting their Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone to the truck's Navion T7000 dash-mounted console and speaker system, without any additional wiring. The T7000 speech recognition system features dual microphones and noise cancellation technology. Cell phone functionality such as menus and volume are controlled through the console buttons of the Navion T7000, and the T7000 can utilize either its text-to-speech capability or its LCD screen to display the mobile phone's battery level and signal strength, phonebook, call records, and caller identity. The T7000 allows for integration between the drivers' cell phone and the Point of Interest database provided by Tele Atlas, a global provider of digital maps and content for navigation and location based solutions, and Lectronix allowing the user to place a call to any number listed (vehicle dealerships, service stations, distribution centers, hotels, motels, etc.).
