21 Days of Android Gifts: Day #4: Jabra TOUR In-Car Speaker

December 6, 2012 - Written By Tom Dawson

Depending on what you do for a living, there’s a good chance that you need to do a lot of driving. If you’re a highway cruiser, it can get pretty difficult to safely answer the phone as you drive. It’s not a good idea to fumble around with your phone and put it on speaker besides, depending on laws in your area, it could well be illegal. The answer is often to get a Bluetooth speaker but, which one to get? There are a lot of them out there now and the choice can be quite difficult – especially if you’re buying one for someone else.

Jabra have been making Bluetooth gear for years now and the TOUR Bluetooth speaker is an essential piece of equipment if you’re going to be talking on the phone and driving. We all know about the dangers of driving and texting, the dangers are still present when talking on the phone. With one of these, you can make sure that you keep your eyes on the road and keeps your attention on your driving and not on your phone. Just hit answer and away you go. It’s one of the best ways to take distraction free calls on the go. Of course, if you’re type of person to get easily distracted behind the wheel, then talking on the phone while driving is perhaps not for you.

At just under $100 it could be on the pricey side but, if you know folks that spend a whole lot of time on the road, this is a perfect present. Perhaps it might be a good gift for the parents. If I’m honest, I can see this being an excellent gift for my Dad and while it might take some time to teach him how to use it I’d feel a lot happier about him taking calls on the road.

The Jabra TOUR is certainly not the only option out there and if you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear them in the comments. If you’re looking for more gift ideas, stay tuned as we’ll have one for you everyday and of course, take a look at our comprehensive buying guide.
