    The D878UV radio will add a circuit card (BT Module) inside the radio.

    The kit will also include an external Bluetooth PTT switch (battery operated and connected to the radio via pairing with the radio.

    Then also a mobile phone type earphone with microphone paired with the radio.

    When used in a vehicle, and paired with the car, the radio can be playing music, and when a Analog or DMR call comes in, the radio music will silence and the call heard over the car speaker.

    If the PTT button (velcroed to the steering wheel) is pushed, you are using the car microphone for your mic.

    Worked well in several cars , now a bit more testing will be done before the kit is released by AnyTone…. Coming soon about march 2019.

    The very best of this module BT is that not used a mike and ear external (like a normal BT handset) but used the internal system audio of your car , GREAT !!!

    Thanks for this info to Trygve Svard

    Don't seam legit to me. Every sound from the car or others in it will be transmitted. Let a hand held be a hand held and a cell be a cell. instead turning a HT into a cell. The mics will have to be wide open to pic up the driver. then he has to put you on hold when his real cell rings. Yup all the wife's in the car will love this.

    I understand your objections, and mostly agree.

    But my newest car is pretty quiet inside. I hoped that its BT would link to my $700 Kenwood D74. No dice. Kenwood jiggered the BT to only connect with their overpriced audio accessories. (Oh and the drivers only work on Windows. Dummies.)

    And here is the $200 HT that could. Really tempted to get one, just to try it.

    I think some are missing the point. Right now, many successfully use vehicle Bluetooth cell phone systems. Yes, there is background noise, but that's true whether ham use or cell use. What I see as the major advantage is for people such as myself - I am not allowed (XYL does not want car looking like a "science project") to install a mobile rig in our car. I do have a mag mount antenna that I use with a handheld. I have used a variety of headsets, and all are a pain to use - wires getting caught, etc. A Bluetooth system would be a great way to be able to use a handheld and not deal with the rats-nest of wires. Then, when you reach your destination, it's a simple matter to connect the whip antenna and take your radio with you.

    A HT in this part of the country is only good for listening without a good mobile antenna. By the time you add it and a cig lighter cord you much better off with a 50 watt mobile.

    So let me get this straight. You can put a HT, cig cord, mag mount antenna, jumble the car up with wires and a HT bouncing around but a mobile is out of the question? And looking like a science project is of concern? I think its other issues at hand here brother! =]
