Hands Free Problems

“Hands free”, as the name suggests, refers to equipment that can be used without the help of hands or at least with limited usage of hands. These include devices that use voice commands, Bluetooth headsets, hands-free car kits (HFCK) and more. Laws on the usage of hands free devices differ all over the world. For example, while it is mandatory to use mobile phones with hands free devices while driving in some countries, this kind of usage is banned in certain American states because of the dangers it poses to the driver. Listed below are a few questions about hands free devices that are answered by the Experts.
