Strike Australia has introduced the first Bluetooth Car Kit that’s 100 per cent compatible with the iPhone’s voice-controlled assistant Siri.

The iK-1 is an integrated Bluetooth system which provides clear harmonic audio reproduction which has been developed by Strike’s acoustic engineers.

Also included is A2DP (advanced audio distribution profile) for high quality audio streaming so users can also hear their music through the system as well.  

Siri, the new iPhone 4S feature, works quite well when users are talking directly to the device.

But we did notice in our review that Siri’s accuracy suffered when users were forced to talk to the device using the car’s hands-free microphone.

But Strike Australia insists the iK-1 will be able to offer the same experience as if you’re talking directly to the iPhone 4S.

Siri is an ideal tool to use when using the iPhone 4S behind the wheel and represents a huge opportunity for the Bluetooth in-car industry.

The Strike iK-1 Bluetooth Car Kit is designed to integrate into your vehicle with no messy wires and cables.

Also available separately is an iPhone 4S cradle which enhances signal coverage for $149.

Each kit contains a Universal Button, Universal harness and Strike iK-1 Base kit. There also vehicle specific switches available to suit a wide range of cars.

The system needs to be professionally installed and once this is done, it becomes a part of the vehicle.

Some car models will allow the Strike system to mute the in-car stereo when making and receiving calls.

The iK-1 is compatible will all Bluetooth enabled phones and is priced at $209.
