Renton, Wash.—TRP Aftermarket Parts announces the availability of an AM/FM CD player with front-panel auxiliary input jack and matching coaxial speakers that offer operators a crystal-clear, hands-free way to answer calls on their cell phones.

By syncing their cell phone or smart phone to the audio system through Bluetooth wireless technology, drivers can speak through a built-in microphone and can hear calls through the speakers. The Bluetooth-enabled radio provides a higher power output for better sound quality in noisy environments as well as a continuous stream of weather information through a built in weather-band. The high-power radio, which also comes in a non-Bluetooth model with 24-hour weather band and without, is specifically engineered to work in tough environments.

“The TRP radio contains part components tested to higher standards than those used in standard radios and speakers,” said Everett Seymoure, TRP global manager. “Backed by a one-year unlimited mileage nationwide warranty, TRP radios are also designed and tested to more stringent standards to ensure that they last in the more strenuous environment of a heavy-duty vehicle,” he added.

“TRP radios with hands-free cell phone capability can help drivers comply with the proposed Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rule on the use of hand-held cell phones while operating a commercial motor vehicle,” Seymoure said. “The proposed cell phone rule has some stiff penalties for commercial drivers caught using their hand-held cell phones,” Seymoure added.
