ORA SHIPS TELECAR FOR HANDS-FREE USE

CHATSWORTH, Calif.-Ora Electronics Inc. said this month it will begin shipping Telecar, the entry-level model of its intelligent transportation system.

Telecar is designed to integrate a cellular phone with a variety of existing vehicular audio systems made by Delco Electronics, used mainly in General Motors Corp. vehicles. Telecar provides a hands-free system by automatically muting the vehicle’s radio and switching the audio entertainment system into a telephone speaker system when a call is received.

Ora President Gershon Cooper said several states are considering legislation requiring hands-free systems in vehicles. “It’s only a matter of time until laws require users of cellular phones to use hands-free devices in their vehicles,” Cooper said. The company said it plans to distribute the Telecar line through its existing customer base of consumer electronics retailers.
