Bluetooth phone and cabriolet

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone installed a bluetooth microphone and speaker in a cabriolet. I was considering this as I use my phone often while driving. However, the wind noise can get loud and I wanted to know if any of you have experience. I currently use a headset which works okay, but it's a PIA putting the set on and off.

I have blue tooth in 2 of my other vehicles and when anyone calls I have to close the windows as the wind makes it hard for the caller to hear. I can hear fine but the super sensitive mikes on the cell pick up a lot of background noise. I would imagine it is just as bad or worse in a cab.

Thanks for the response. I thought the noise would be a problem. I will just stick with the head set units. Even with the wind noise, the head set works well.


I have bluetooth in my cab. I don't bother using it with the top down because no can hear what I am saying, too much wind noise on their end.

When I installed my Pioneer double din unit, I placed the mike right on the steering wheel column.

What that does is that even with the top down, I can actually make myself heard - it's not a perfect sound for the other caller, but good enough in an emergency....never have to take my eyes off the road...

The mike I use has a noise cancelling capability where most of the background noise is filtered out:
