Hands-free goes 'beyond phone calls' with new intelligent Bluetooth headsets and hand-free kits

Global Bluetooth headset manufacturer SouthWing today announces the new SouthWing Voice Assistant service with selected SouthWing headsets and car kits. Together with SouthWing's patented Push4™ button, the SouthWing Assistant ushers in a new era of convenience, safety and productivity for drivers.

The first devices to include the SouthWing Voice Assistant service are the SH505 Voice Assistant headset, SF505 Voice Assistant car kit and SF605 Voice Assistant car kit. Drivers just push a button on their headset or car kit and speak to send text messages, send and listen to emails, record reminders and more. Powered by Dial2Do's Voice Platform, the service is a boost for anyone who wants to make best use of their time in the car, but stay safe and legal behind the wheel.

When the driver pushes the Push4 button on their headset or handsfree carkit, they are connected to the SouthWing Voice Assistant. They can then say "email" to send an email, "text" to send a text, or "reminder" to create a reminder for themselves making it totally simple for drivers to get things done and drive safely with the SouthWing Assistant.

"Lots of us sit behind the wheel of a car each day for half an hour or more. This is often time we think of things we need to do, or people we need to contact. With the SouthWing Assistant, you can now really get things done, safely, as you drive," said Ivan MacDonald, CEO Dial2Do. "The Assistant is simple to use and works right out of the box; just push the button and start using it."

"This is the first time drivers have been offered a way to buy a hands-free service as a single, bundled offering," says Bart Huisken, SouthWing Founder, "The combination of our patented Push4 button with Dial2Do's voice platform makes it a 'joined up' experience for the user, an industry first. This coupled with a single price to pay for everything gives users simplicity and convenience in both service and pricing."

The SouthWing SF505 Bluetooth car kit, SF605 Bluetooth car kit and SH505 Bluetooth headset featuring the SouthWing Voice Assistant won't be available until March 30th, but you can beat the Jones' and pre-register to get yours before anyone else by visiting
