Next Phone

In about 6 months my phone comes up for renewal.

I want to stay Android but I'd like a phone with a louder speaker than my WildFire S. I don't really want to pay more than 15 a month.

I have a lifetime subscription to the PGPSW cameras. Their CamerAlert app is superb as it's up to date, directional and prompts for updates.

The snag with my WildFire is that it's just not loud enough, even on full volume.

or - is there a phone that will play through the vehicle system via Bluetooth? The Wildfire works perfectly OK as a phone via the cars Bluetooth but the option to play CamerAlert through the car Bluetooth doesn't work.

I would go for a S3 mini as I guess these would fit in your budget plan

Thanks again.

If I can use a phone then I can dispense with the Garmin. Whilst the Garmin does its job it isn't directional which can be a pain.

Don't make the mistake I did and assume all phones work with Honda Bluetooth. Check Honda Handsfree before you buy.

Yes, I did that homework before getting the WildFire.

Good info though
