Hands-Free Calling and Audio Streaming

From wireless audio streaming (A2DP), hands-free calling, and simple pairing, to audio control and  artist, album, and song search (AVRCP 1.6 profile*), Bluetooth® wireless technology has made life in the vehicle much more convenient.

The AVH-221EX features Bluetooth Hands Free Profile 1.6 including Wideband Speech capability, which improves the sound quality of phone calls by offering double the frequency bandwidth (when compared to calls without Wideband Speech)**.

*Search functions vary by phone.
**Call quality depends on wireless provider’s support of HFP 1.6.
