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.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win an H17txt with Motospeak Hands-Free Device!

To enter, answer tell me whether you've ever been tempted to text and drive. Shh, we won't tell...

No, I've never texted while driving. Seems way to difficult...and not worth it.

Reply

I've texted while at stoplights before, but not while the car is moving--too dangerous!

I have never tried to text and drive but I've read a text or two. My problem is when my phone rings I have trouble finding it as I'm driving. I've been wanting a headset. I think everyone should own one.

26 Kim July 1, 2010 at 9:03 am

I don't text while I am driving but if I am stopped at a red light I might.

Reply

27 KendraLyn July 1, 2010 at 9:17 am

Yes I've been tempted... but it's really hard to do with the keyboard phone I have, so I really can't. Thank goodness.

Yes its such a bad idea, but when you're stuck in bumper to bumper traffic it's so tempting.

My husband could really use this when he is on the road.

Reply

36 Kate O. July 1, 2010 at 9:37 am

Yes, but I don't do it unless I'm at a long stop light - too dangerous! I've tripped while texting and walking
