Win-It Wednesday: H17txt with Motospeak Hands-Free Device

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 30, 2010 · 366 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

H17txt with Motospeak™

June is just about over now, but did you know that it was National Safe Driving Month? Motorola hit the road this month to educate consumers about driving safely with their Get Smarter safe driving campaign.

As part of this effort, Motorola has developed the H17txt with Motospeak Hands-Free Device. This nifty little piece of technology looks like a typical Bluetooth headset, with the added capability of reading text messages to the consumer in real time. You can even set up an autoresponse that will let the original sender know that you will respond to their message as soon as you reach your destination!

Motorola sent me an H17txt with Motospeak unit to test drive this feature. Unfortunately, the Motospeak technology is only compatible with Android and RIM devices at this time, so I was unable to take advantage of it with my iPhone. However, you can still use it as a Bluetooth headset, and this has quickly become a lifesaver for me. I'm hoping that the Motospeak application will be compatible soon, because I'd love to have that feature.

I honestly have never texted while driving. I don't usually answer my phone either, since I don't want to pay a hefty fine if ticketed, and I have had too many close calls because another driver is on their phone & driving dangerously..

Of course I have been tempted. I try to restrain myself til I hit a red light. Sometimes no red lights so I have to wait.

I do not text and drive, for the safety reason first and honestly I can not see to text without my reading glasses and it just is too awkward for me to do


15 Angel July 7, 2010 at 5:37 pm

I am tempted all the time!
