It is a voice-interactive way to handle your emails, phone calls, calendar appointment, and SMS messages, all through your car’s stereo. It is a small device that interacts directly with Bluetooth enabled devices and the car’s audio system or headset. iLane can located any Bluetooth enabled device in the car, so you can have your handheld device in your purse, briefcase, or even pocket.
How it works is when a new message arrives on your PDA or Smartphone iLane tell you by reading a summary of it aloud. With voice commands you can have iLane read the whole message, compose your reply, forward an attachment, and more.
