Ultimate CarPcPhone Project: USB Controlled Hands Free Car Kit
Hi Folks ! I'm starting this new thread about BT hands free phone with this new project: Ultimate CarPhone :-)
Forget about all the Bluesoleil hassle and follow me on this one. I got the Bluetooth dev board yesterday and it is very promising... I tested it and at last I can make decent phone calls and people say they hear me. well I'm using the Andrea killer microphone DA-350 but I will test the board with a simple microphone. the board does Noice and echo cancel out of the box !!!
here is a link to the dev board (I paid 162€ shipping included to france):
1. Make a small phone app to control the board.
2. try to figure out how to integrate the board in the sound setup. I had to diconnect my sound card yeserday to test. The board has a lin-in jack. I'll talk to the Laird guys about this. The idea is to use the board as a passthough for carpc sound and to mute this sound when a call comes in. if that's not possible i'll have to figure out a soultion. your suggestions are welcome :-) Simple and easy way is to add small dedicated speaker under the seat and connect the speaker ou line of the board to it and mute sound (throught the phone app) when a call comes.
By the way this is the first post about this project on the internet as a thank you to Clockwork for his DriveLine :)
The project can be used with any frontend of course. a plugin should be easy to make for any carpc frontend.
