Media Alert - Motorola Canada helps Ontarians comply with Bill 118 through a wide variety of hands-free solutions

    TORONTO, April 22 /CNW/ -

    What: Today, the Ontario government passed Bill 118 - the Countering
Distracted Driving and Promoting Green Transportation Act. The new law will
prohibit the use of hand-held wireless communication devices or electronic
entertainment devices while driving.
    For Ontarians, this will mean ensuring they are using hands-free devices
in the car, including both hands-free in-car devices and Bluetooth headsets.

    Who: Ralf Seilis, Motorola Canada's channel manager, Companion Products,
is available to speak about the range of hands-free options available to
consumers and the benefits of each.

    Why: Motorola is the world's leading manufacturer of hands-free
Bluetooth(R) devices and offers one of the largest selections of easy-to-use
hands-free Bluetooth solutions that will allow consumers to continue to use a
mobile phone while in a car.

    -   Motorola Bluetooth headsets such as the MOTOPURE H15, H780, H620 and
        H390 enhance the mobile experience for drivers by keeping them in
        touch and entertained with the convenience of hands-free
        connectivity. Motorola offers innovative headsets that pair quickly
        and easily with any Bluetooth mobile device and offer voice
        recognition dialing, crystal clear audio and one-touch call controls
        for convenient hands-free driving.
    -   Motorola's clip-n-go in-car speakerphone and Digital FM Transmitter,
        MOTOROKR T505, lets you keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the
        road while making calls. The T505 allows you to connect a Bluetooth-
        enabled phone to your car stereo without wires or installation. You
        can make or take calls hands-free and enjoy your own music via the
        T505's internal 2-watt speaker or through your car speakers - with
        the clarity and volume of a car stereo system.

    The use of wireless phones while driving may cause distraction.
Discontinue a call if you can't concentrate on driving. Additionally, the use
of wireless devices and their accessories may be prohibited or restricted in
certain areas. Always obey the laws and regulations on the use of these
    Certain Bluetooth features including those listed may not be supported by

features may be limited in certain devices, or by certain wireless carriers.
