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...

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||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.
||baked the idea is kicking arround out there, mainly as it would simplify wiring looms and stuff
now i want an entierly bluetooth setup
||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.
