I have an 8700. For the car kit I use a Parrot 3100 http://parrot.biz/united_kingdom/pro...hp?id=advanced

The parrot is brilliant; just got one for the wife also.

I use the same one too, with an 8700- can't fault it at all! The car kit is great, I have 4 phones paired to mine & have had no problem with any of them

I assume (?) I can't sync with my 8700 address book, but can you use voice dial? I have the old version of this product and am thinking of upgrading.

Thanks for the link!

Looks pretty cool!

Not something that would be worth the investment for me as i dont spend a ton of time in the car, or between a couple cars. But i can definitely see its usefulness!

This kit is very basic... think speakerphone extension. It would support voice dialing from a device that has that feature (not a BlackBerry).
