  • Phone integration using Parrot kits

    The subject has already been discussed on mp3car so I'm posting here just to see if you guys have any ideas on how to do this using some relays or phidget stuff :-)

    This guy did it here:
    http://www.avbrand.com/projects/carpc/phone/

    Parrot have make a ck5000 board but it is not for sale anywhere !!!

    Wow!! Solution #2 is the bomb! If that can be found available somewhere and works as good as other Parrot products do, it will be the "missing link" for car PC's. Since it's an OEM type raw component, I suspect someone with the brain power to do so would need to build it into a project box with a USB interface. Mitch.....??? Where are you Mitch.....ahmmm SC-C1 box but for BT

      Here's the US site with some BlueTooth devices.
      http://www.parrot.com/usa/products/b...-free-car-kits

      At first glance, the MKi9000 (and CK3000) looks similar to the device on that avbrand page. Maybe a newer revision?
      (but I don't see the "mute box" in there.)

        Nice module that is, my gut feeling is that those are not for sale to the general public, then there is probably an expensive devkit to buy + nda + minimum order of 1000s. Its probably worth asking parrot, but you will also need someone brave enough to put down the cash/time/effort. Getting the datasheet and the price is a start.

        I just bought the WT32 module from farnell and I hope to get it soon and start playing. Being too busy Ill probably wont get very far LOL.

          I sent a request to Parrot yesterday. I just got their reply: they're transferring my request to the dev departement :-)
          Not sure this is going anywhere but I tried :-)

            but maybe we can start a petition or something and send it to Parrot.
            if you're ok I'll start a new thread on the main forum.

              or maybe we can just ask Bluesoleil to make a carpc module.
              I'm even tempted to test one of their dongles with their stack:

                Most of these companies aren't going to go out of their way to accommodate a small number of CarPC users. If the Parrot dev team gets in contact, that's probably the best bet.

                    read that but thought maybe this is better tested with their stack. some say bluetooth is bluetooth some say bluetooth is the company which makes the stack or components !!!

                      just contacted these chinese guys : http://www.bluetooth-gps-module.com/ and requested the same thing... to make a quality bluetooth handsfree device combined with a soft (dialpad) to use on a PC and make quality phone calls. Will follow up with their reply

                        I found the chipset blue soleil uses for their hardware as that should be the best for using their software. The chipset you need is ralink rt3090 it's pretty common to find on ebay. I think HP used them in their laptops. They work the way it should. It would save you alot of agro. Can't beat em join em SNO

                          good catch. will try to find and test one. if you have a direct ebay link that would be quicker.
