Protect your posh phone with a €29 cool looking Blue Tooth Bargain

You couldn't go far wrong with this at the price- a blue tooth headset would cost almsot as much and this would allow you leave your phone tucked away inside the cponsole or even in a waterproof case or bag.

It even looks the part.

Cobra's MR F300 BT is the loudest and clearest way to make and receive cell phone calls on your boat! Do you ever worry about getting your cell phone wet or missing a phone call? Do you have a difficult time making clear calls while underway or in windy conditions? Cobra's MR F300 BT solves all of these problems.

the reviews are a bit mixed so I'll wait for Nos' review. I like the idea. One person says doesn't work with iphone another says it does (possibly apple issue and a change to their bluetooth policy? or possibly user set up error). The volume issue was a concern - I don't really understand it...

...but at > £200 reduced to £30 its clearly not selling how cobra intended.

Also bear in mind the effect on battery life that Bluetooth may have on the phone in your pocket. Probably best to have somewhere waterproof in the console where the phone can be kept safely on charge.

Well, at that price I can flog it on on ebay if I don't like it

I haven't really thought through how I'll even fit it yet.
