    This is the interesting statement:

    This SDK is Get-able,and GOD has already stated that the support for this device already exists within SD,Need i say more?

    Oh i just found this another thread,READ THE LAST LINE..

It cost us 10s of thousands of dollars to make our own prototype. The schemematic and SDK for the parrot chip is copyrighted and confidential information from parrot so we won't be legally able to release the specifications to design your own, however, the final hardware might be easily hackable.

    Yeh.... if there is a working SDK, even if it doesn't do "direct" communication to the device, I'm sure that people who use other frontends would love it. I mean you can make the SDK (say a dll) easier by already providing a preorganized list of contacts.

    IMHO it will be a very big mistake by Mp3Car and SD if they decide not to sell this device to the wider CarPc market once developed.

    Even if sales of streetdeck go through the roof,the number of SD users will never equal The amount of CarPc users who don't have SD,by any measure this is a massive market for such a device and we're to believe it will remain un-tapped?,

    So in fact it's more like this: mp3car = streetdeck = NOT selling for other frontends = less $$

    This does not make for good bussiness sense,any1 can see that.
    God Of Cpu,Would it not be beneficial to MP3car to obtain a Wider Marketing licence enabling outside sales?,surely this is a little narrow sighted.
    Your developement costs could be recouped much faster and could only increase revenue for all involved.
    I'm no Bill Gates but surely your closing off a massive market?

    Their are other people working with this chip also, they will not be the only people with a PC interface for the Parrot...

    David/GOD: Do you know of anyone developing PC software that can compete with the Parrot's hardware?

    (or alternatively, do you know of any reason that a normal BlueTooth dongle could not communicate as well as the Parrot given the appropriate software? Am I wrong in thinking that the Parrot only communicates with the phone over BT and that it probably uses a standard BT chipset to do that?)

    Yes, u r right thats exactly how it works. theres no other way around. Its not like all fortune 500 phonegiants would have implemented a magic undocumented way for some upstart just-out-of-carage company to exploit. Its BT, its standard. end of story.

    And i know this is going to get god-of-cpu's knickers twisted... well just too bad, but that just how things are in reality.

    Don't be so sure Bear, it is possible that a normal BT dongle does not support the right "profile" or something dumb like that (I don't think software has total access to the exact bits that are transmitted via RF, not without a custom dongle driver or something). I still think we are right on this one too, but I'm not willing to say that 100% for sure just yet. I wanted to see if the others have more info.

    Hey, if someone has an un-installed Parrot, can you please post the part numbers (and MFG) written on all the IC's (the microcontroller, the BT rf-chip, the voltage regulater, etc.)
