A standard fit car stereo that will pair with a bluetooth mobile phone enabling handsfree comunication.

Even better cars that come with stereos like this.

The stereo would mute music on incoming calls have a built in microphone. Support auto awnser after a number of rings etc...

       There are a bunch of add-on bluetooth car kits (see links) that give you the same functionality, though they're not quite as nice as proper integration into the head unit.

       [phoenix] - perhaps [Porkstone] was thinking of the acronym In Car Entertainment?

       For a while my father had a car phone that could be operated either by handset or through the stereo speakers and a microphone imbeded in the ceiling. Not quite the same as linking your mobile phone to the stereo, but the technology is certainly there.

       Chrysler is baking this into their new models, currently as a dealer-installed option, soon to be factory installed. So I'd call this baked.

       I've been dreaming of this exact thing for 3 years now. My next car stereo will have this. I plan to bluetooth my phone, PDA, and GPS into my car audio system. I don't want to have to buy a new car to get this. This market will be huge with states beginning to pass the no dialing laws. My commute will be much more productive.

       I am an engineer at a company in the UK and we are currently working on a in car stereo unit with bluetooth and MP3, I have one in my car and have to say it works well.
