Motorola T505 provides hand-free access to HTC EVO

Evo-moto505 I don't use very many accessories with my HTC EVO 4G.

My phone has a screen protector on it, but it goes otherwise naked. I don't use a case, carrying pouch, or desktop charging cradle. But there is one accessory that I absolutely can't live without, and that's my Motorola T505 Bluetooth car speaker.

The T505 sits right on my car's sun visor, within easy reach. After the familiar Bluetooth pairing process, the T505 is ready to be used not only to make and receive phone calls, but also to listen to my favorite music and podcasts using the EVO's A2DP Bluetooth standards.

The killer feature of the T505 is the FM transmitter. It's a bit fiddly sometimes (really only when the unit is cold), but the ability to pipe phone calls and music through the car's own speakers makes the T505 worth the price of admission. The FM transmitter will also search for the strongest FM signal at the touch of a button, and will automatically save that frequency for your next use (it won't save it permanently, however).

T505-stockIf you're in the market for a Bluetooth car speaker, I would highly suggest that you pick up a T505 if your vehicle doesn't already have Bluetooth capacity built-in. The setup is simple and straightforward and the unit is very well-constructed.

The T505 originally retailed for about $100 but can now be picked up for around $50 or $60 online and in various electronics stores.
