    Is there a way to fit my truck with the OEM steering wheel controls and OEM system? If not,

    What is BLU Logic? New? Anybody have experience with it yet? Does it use the same slot as USA spec behind the radio. TRDparts4u has it listed for $177.

    I want bluetooth hands free but I want something that's going to work well and integrate into my stereo.

    i just got this a few months back. http://www.amazon.com/BlueAnt-Supertooth-Bluetooth-Handsfree-Black/dp/B001953NGS/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=wireless&qid=1237239746&sr=8-1

    works good. Motorola makes one too that is cheaper, but i got this one because it says the name of the caller. I have mine velcro'd to where the sunglass container is. its positioned so that i can sill open and close the sunglass thing.

    oh yeah another nice feature when you get in your car, it automatically connects. When you get about 20 feet away from the car for about 10-15 minutes it disconnects on its own. it has some vibration sensor so it wont reconnect until the door opens or closes. Also the battery life is amazing. i use mine everyday and only have to charge it maybe every 2 - 3 weeks. the reviews say the speaker quality is excellent. I think its as aspected for any speaker phone.

    I just had the BLU Logic installed by the dealer as my truck was new I did not want to take the chance of others or myself to screw it up. Cost about 400 installed. Works through the radio speakers. Call comes in radio goes off push a button and speak. Button to activate is next to the traction button on my access cab. If your cell has voice activation that will also work through the system. I have a samsung phone ans so far the system is working well

    For the after market BLU Logic they mounted the mic on the dash just below and right of the steering wheel
