Simply put it turns the car into a giant headset. Once its been set up when you start the car it automatically connects to your phone (if it has bluetooth) and any calls you place or receive are heard over the car's speakers.
Bluetooth is just the name for the wireless link from the phone to the handsfree kit.
This kit has a microphone built into the display When a call comes in it automatically mutes the radio and announces the callers name if its in your phones phonebook. You answer by pushing a button on the remote. It is just like using any speakerphone. End the call by pushing the other button on the remote & the radio automatically unmutes.
The smart is fairly noisy at freeway speeds so none of these things work perfectly. But it is a lot better than fumbling with the phone itself in traffic.
