Scott, if you're driving for Schneider, they don't allow hands free devices when you are driving. You can only use the phone when you are stopped or parked, hands free or not. I assume that applies to CB radio use also.

I use the Uniden Bearcat 880 CB, and the Blueparrot 250xt for my hands free calling. They both have worked well for what I need.

I have both types of CBS. One is three years old, while the primary is from the mid 1980s.

I have the cobra 29 LCD and a plantronics earpiece for hands free. I never liked the over the head style for bluetooth. Depending on the truck you get, you might need to invest in an antenna for the trucks cb. I put a 7 ft whip on mine to reach above the cab. Increased a couple miles when I did that.

Please do not assume “that”. You might want to ask them...

All about safety; CB’s can be monitored for traffic backups, accidents and dangerous road conditions well in advance of taking any emergency or evasive action. This can be accomplished without ever using the mic.
