Western Star Offers Bluetooth-Enabled Radio for Full Product Line

FORT MILL, S.C. – Western Star Truck Sales, Inc. today announced that a Bluetooth®-enabled radio is now available as an option for its full product line, including the Western Star® 4700, 4800, 4900 and 6900 truck models.

Mounted in the cab’s overhead console, the Bluetooth technology enables drivers to talk on cell phones hands-free. Operating through the cab speaker system, the technology mutes the radio when the driver places or receives a call, helping drivers not only keep their eyes on the road, but also stay in compliance with hand-free cell phone laws.

Navigation systems with Bluetooth capability will also work with this new system. Similar to the phone, the radio is muted when the navigation system announces a driver’s next turn.

“Safety is one of our top priorities, and the availability of Bluetooth will not only benefit the drivers, but help keep the roads safer for everyone traveling,” said Ann Demitruk, director of marketing, Western Star.

The new Bluetooth-enabled system comes standard with Sirius XM Radio and is available to order now for all Western Star truck models.
