Agreed & that is why the best thing is to keep your phone hidden, that way you can use the BT handset & not have viruses popping up. I do the same with my phone!

When the technology advances, we get lots of features to fiddle with. At the same time, we should know how to use it. All the BT phones have the feature of not being visible to othet BT enabled gadgets, which one should use it. Similarly, I hope, the BT HUs should also have features from being invisible for gadgets other than those already paired.

Now a days, the inventors are very much aware of the privacy and security requirements and they build such features with the privacy and security requirements in mind. But after all, it is human devised and there will be another human to break the security feature and that's how new viruses and security threats are emerging.

is phone connectivity all that the bluetooth HUs are capable of !? i'm thinking i can play music off my cell straight onto the HU thru bluetooth !! that will be cool...!! also...if these HUs come with some basic memory like the sonys 1gig panel HU, it'd be cool to store some new tunes on the HU from the cell phone every now and then maybe i can also right click on some mp3 track on my laptop and say 'send to car...' !!

Yes, nip, I think this is exactly what the manufacturers are really thinking of. If your phone/pda/mp3 player supports the A2DP Bluetooth profile (quite a lot of new phones have this profile), you can stream music straight off your device to the HU in full stereo. Cool, huh?

I recently saw the news of a new iPod accessory (in Engadget or Gizmodo) which lets you stream music off the iPod (with a bluetooth dongle-like attachment) to a bluetooth headset over the A2DP profile. This should work with HUs supporting A2DP. This would be better than using the FM attachment for iPods -- no loss of quality of sound.
