What is Bluetooth technology?
The Con-Verse Bluetooth® system was designed from the ground up to make interacting with your mobile device less of a distraction while driving by keeping your hands free and your eyes on the road. A Con-Verse system interfaces with the factory audio wiring harness on your vehicle to automatically mute the sound coming for your radio and replaces that sound with audio streaming from your phone or other Bluetooth-equipped device. The Con-Verse system will stream multiple types of audio including telephone calls, music, podcasts, sounds from videos, voice-guided navigation directions and so much more! Once audio from your device stops streaming, like when you end a phone call, the radio will begin playing through the vehicle's speakers again. And once paired with the Con-Verse Bluetooth® module, your phone will connect automatically each time your start your vehicle.
And Phone Calls Aren't All You Can Do With Con-Verse Bluetooth®
While a Con-Verse Bluetooth® system is a hugely convenient alternative to removing your hands from the steering wheel of your vehicle in order to make or receive a phone call, Con-Verse also makes accessing the entertainment multimedia on your phone a breeze. Because the Con-Verse system will stream audio through all of your vehicle's speakers*, music stored on your phone or streamed through cloud-based services like Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, or Google Play Music comes through loud and clear providing a great personal soundtrack to your driving. And while the Con-verse control switch mentioned above allows you to answer or reject calls, the Up and Down arrows of the control switch allow you to adjust the volume of the music as well as skip forwards or backwards through your music so you have complete control without ever touching your phone.
But That's Not All - Hey Siri
Owners of Apple iPhones from the 4s model to the latest 6s and 6s Plus have no doubt gotten accustomed to interacting with Siri. The iPhone's built-in intelligent personal assistant provides quick access to myriad services including voice-guide navigation, reading and responding to text messages, searching for local businesses, getting sports scores and more. With Con-Verse Bluetooth® drivers now have access to all that Siri offers without having to touch their iPhone or the Con-Verse control switch. With the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, as long as the Hey Siri feature is turned on in the Settings menu (Settings>General>Siri>Hey Siri), all a driver needs to do is speak the phrase "Hey Siri" and they can begin giving instructions to the iPhone. Likewise, other Siri-enabled iPhones can take advantage of this feature as long as they are plugged in and charging.
