“Mobile-Ease” is a wireless in-vehicle technology supplied by Bluetooth®. Bluetooth technology provides freedom from wired connections - enabling links between mobile computers, mobile phones, portable handheld devices, and connectivity to the Internet.
Unlike the wireless system found on some competitor vehicles, “Mobile-Ease” is integrated into the vehicle’s audio system. A microphone is mounted near the vehicle rear view mirror instead of additional speakers mounted in the vehicle.
The system allows the driver to place and receive phone calls with the touch of a button. Up to five different Bluetooth-equipped cellular phones can be linked into a single vehicle’s system.
“Mobile-Ease” recognizes cellular phones within seconds after the driver or passenger with the phone enters the vehicle. A status light on the system’s button pad mounted on the dashboard or console indicates that the phone is connected.
New phones can be connected to the system by pressing the voice recognition button on the button pad and speaking some simple commands.
A green light located on a control pad mounted on the dash indicates a connection between the phone and the system. Instead of using the portable cell phone, the driver or passenger phone is immediately recognized and logged into the “Mobile-Ease” system.
“Mobile-Ease” also has advanced voice recognition capability to allow the user to dial using simple voice commands. It automatically mutes the radio when sending or receiving a call, and allows the user to mute the call. It allows the user to transfer calls between the vehicle and the wireless phone. The system's phonebook will store up to 32 names and four numbers per name. It recognizes commands in English, North American Spanish, and French Canadian.
