Hand Free Installation

Recommended Posts

Just got my first IS200 last night and am wondering does the standard Nokia handsfree kit work? Where is the best mounting position and can it be done without having to screw / glue anything to the dash?

Also I have the radio mute feature on the handsfree kit but in my last car it only ever muted the front speakers, is it possible to mute all six whe3n I get it installed in the Lexus?

DB :blink:

Well I've fitted mine like this............

I bought the 'console' from HERE and i think it cost about £55 if my memory serves me correct. They are dead easy to fit, 2 clips, which means no drilling and no unsightly holes if/when you sell the car. Matching leather in various colours. Can't go wrong. :lol: B)

I now have Bluetooth...no cradle B)

I use the Bluetooth kit aswell. I just mount my cradle on the console. I thought it was illegal to use a Bluetooth kit WITHOUT a cradle. :unsure:

Sshhhhhhhhhhh :crying:

I never dial anyone whilst I'm driving and I only ever answer my phone calls by using the button fitted to the dash. Oh yeah, and I never send texts whilst driving either. :)

:whistling: Back to the subject. Yes but you will have to use a relay to drop the power to the radio which will turn it off rather than mute it, as there is no radio mute on the stock stereo.

Cheers.

Yeah. Mine's set up like this. The radio comes straight back on once the call is ended. The guys who are installing it for you should be able to do it for you. t's simple auto electronics. B)
