I've been looking into aftermarket stereos, such as the Pioneer 1400dvd. One of the features I want is hands-free phone capabilities, however I don't necessarily want or need the bluetooth (wireless connection) feature.
Many units such as the 1400dvd feature iPhone control through a usb connection. The 1400 specifically has a microphone that you can buy with it (at crutchfield), even though it's not bluetooth capable.
My question is, can I make calls through the headunit, and talk hands-free with a microphone over the truck's sound system, without a bluetooth capable unit? I would always have my iPhone connected via the usb anyways as I want to listen to the music and podcasts on the phone. I didn't know if the bluetooth referred only to the wireless connection, or to the phone call ability as a whole.
If anyone has the pioneer 1400dvd or a similar non-bluetooth model and can comment, that's the one I'm mostly looking at.
