    On page 160 of the User Guide, under accessories from LG, there is a
    Headset. "... allowing hands-free operation. It includes earpiece,
    microphone, and integrated call answer / termination button.". There is no
    disclaimer or fine print. I wonder if this is what we should use for
    handsfree driving with our VX4500!

    User manuals are now outsourced. These manual were probably printed in a
    third world country while the VX4500 was still in the design stage. And the
    design was to make the side key (the one with the up and down button, not
    the lower voice command key) double as a hangup key in driving mode by
    pressing it twice. They probably decided to not include that function in
    the final production because the firware programmer forgot to code the
    routine that polls on the side key. Oh well it would have been nice if this
    functionality was not overlooked. This is a very welcome feature in States
    which now makes using cell phones, without handsfree device, illegal.

    User manuals are now outsourced. These manual were probably printed in a
    third world country while the VX4500 was still in the design stage. And the
    design was to make the side key (the one with the up and down button, not
    the lower voice command key) double as a hangup key in driving mode by
    pressing it twice. They probably decided to not include that function in
    the final production because the firware programmer forgot to code the
    routine that polls on the side key. Oh well it would have been nice if this
    functionality was not overlooked. This is a very welcome feature in States
    which now makes using cell phones, without handsfree device, illegal.
