Hands free kit for my Nokia 6310i that has become my car phone since I got the 6680. That's it.

Exactly.

BAFDT has a few gadgets to make my off-duty driving a bit more convenient.

Duty Truck has the other gizmos . . . also a CB for communication with truckers and others on the highway. I don't have a RAT or LoJack reciever. Do keep a crowbar, Ice Scraper, and shim (for locked doors) though. And First Aide kit from hell . . . looks like a portable ambulance bag. Also - based on geography - a duffel bag full or Arctic Survival Gear. Boots, Coveralls, Coat and Gloves good to -130F; MREs, Water and Fire Starter.
