Installed Handsfree with Dial2Do: drive’n’talk

Yes, yes. Busy bees are we at Dial2Do HQ. At CES today we announced another partnership for the Dial2Do Handsfree Assistant. With our partners at Enustech, we’re proud to be launching a new installed hands-free car kit called the drive’n’talk (drive and talk – geddit?).

Launching today, the Klat 7 will ship with 90 days Dial2Do Pro bundled, enabling users to text, email and much, much more, while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road. This is a first in the installed car-kit market, and so we’re very excited to be working with Enustech to help bring value-add for the busy driver to this segment of the market.

More details at the newly launched site here. Press release is here. Remember, the Dial2Do team is out in force at CES, so if you fancy a chat, please stop by our booth in the Safe Driving Zone.

One button to rule them all : BlueTrek Concerto and the Dial2Do Hands-free assistant

The Dial2Do Team are out in force at CES this week. Our shiny new stand is in place in the Distracted Driving Zone, and we have people to meet and announcements to announce!

First announcement out of the blocks was our partnership with one of the world’s premium Bluetooth Headset manufacturers: BlueTrek. Known for being something of an innovator in the headset space, BlueTrek and Dial2Do have teamed up to launch a new headset called the Concerto, which will come bundled with the Hands-free Assistant service from Dial2Do. This means consumers can now email and text, hands-free, right out of the box.

And speaking of box – here’s how it looks “in situ”:

We’re delighted to be working with BlueTrek, and are very excited about the potential for the HandsFree Assistant service to address a real need for busy drivers everywhere.

Dial2Do wishes a Very Happy Christmas to all our Beta Users

By now you might have noticed that there’s been a few things happening this week at Dial2Do. We have spruced up our website, added new content and a shiny new video to explain how it works, and switched on our paid service. We also quietly made some improvements to the way Dial2Do works for you when you phone it.

And finally, we gave a Christmas Gift to all our Beta users who have helped get us to this point – one year’s free subscription to the new Dial2Do Pro service! We are extremely grateful for all the comments, feedback and suggestions from our Beta users over the last twelve months – so we’re keen to keep you all with us! Please keep up the feedback and critical comments – it helps us make a better service for everyone.

Here’s a quick summary of what we’ve been doing:

  • New Site, content and naming: Now with added colour and cars! 🙂 We’ll be promoting the service as the Handsfree Assistant for drivers in 2010 and beyond.  There’s a new area to help you learn more about Dial2Do before you try it. Complete with shiny new video!
  • Payments: Dial2Do now has a free service and a Pro Service. When you sign up for the free service, you get one month of the Pro service to let you get a feel for what it can do for you. At the end of the month, if you’re not convinced, you can stay with the free service, which lets you manage your reminders (one of our most popular services). The Pro service costs either $3.99 a month, or $39.99 for the year, and lets you use everything Dial2Do has to offer. Full details on the Free and Pro services here.
  • Conversational commands. You can now speak a little more naturally if you like when talking to Dial2Do. For example, to send a text, you used to do this:

You: “Text”

Dial2Do: “Text. Ok. Text who?”

You: “Aunt Marge”

Dial2Do: “OK. Ready to text Aunt Marge….”

Now you can just do this:

You: “Text Aunt Marge”

Dial2Do” “OK, ready to text Aunt Marge….”

Full details of the new style and some of the options here.

Finally – we’ll be at CES show in January in Las Vegas, Baby! We’ll be exhibiting in the Distracted Driving Zone. So – if you want to meet or chat to the Dial2Do Team at the event, please drop a line.
