  • Mac Audio Gateway...

    Anyone familure with how to utilize the mac as the audio gateway from/through your mobile? My main device is a Nokia 3650.

    I've seen much discussion on it about a pc, but not mac yet.

    I utilize salling clicker and romeo alot, but no luck there either.

    I basically just want to utilize the proximity modes of salling or romeo or just bluetooth in general to answer, talk, hear, etc. from my mobile through my mac.

    Thanks.

      I have seen this one as well, but it seems only to offer connectivity options, like dialing, sms, sync, etc. But no throughput. (not be default anyway).

      Is there a work around for there software or other software?

      Thanks

        Wait for the updated version. Through Tiger you can use your speakers and mic to commounicate through your cell phone. And the developer has said that such an ability will be made available in teh next version of the software.

          BluephoneElite or Tiger will support this? As I have Tiger installed now.

          Thanks

            I would imagine he meant the next version of BluePhoneElite.

            and also- I might sound like a complete newb when i ask this but what exactly is "throughput"?

            meaning using bluetooth phone to connect to the internet? or being able to answer a call and talk through the computer to the phone?

            sorry ... i am a newb to the whole bluetooth phone integration.

            thanx

              Me too. I think he's talking about using your Mac as the audio output for your bluetooth phone. That is, when the phone rings and you answer, the Mac turns down the music and plays the voice from the phone over the Mac's speakers. You'd still have to have a microphone, presumably from your bluetooth headset.

                AH! okay. cool, thanks. After I posted that I was reading the website of the program and actual using my brain and came to the conclusion of that's what it was. But an interesting point is that this ability is not yet available and by using this program you might not be able to use a blue tooth headset at the same time because of chane conflicts .... it's in the faq on the program's site ....

                  I was wondering if there has been any update with this?

                  I would really like to be able to use my mac as a virtual headset for my razr...

                  Are there any widcomm-like solutions for the mac?

                    Is anyone aware weather the mrouter is still available on Tiger or has been reintroduced? I've been unable to locate it since the upgrade, as such there is no longer internet through bluetooth functionality via my mac. So, my phone is really only good with the basic functions of like Salling Clicker.

                      If you're wanting to use the mac as a headset for your phone, then you're out of luck for now. I worked on this problem last summer, and basically came to the conclusion that it's not possible given Apple's current Bluetooth implementation. The problem is that the phone and computer need to set up a special connection for audio, separate from the connection used to control regular phone features such as SMS, and that connection type is only enabled for using a headset with the computer. There was a post on Apple's Bluetooth mailing list about possibly adding support for other devices to be able to use audio channels, but I wouldn't expect it any time soon.

                        This is said by the developer from BPE:
                        In this tread: http://forums.reelintelligence.com/v...257&highlight=

                        Multiple SMS recipients and the speakerphone functionality are already implemented. I will work on possibility of using "skins" once the beta is released.

                        Did anybody check out this speakerphone functionality?

                          another question

                          Well, I recently purchased a HS820 bluetooth headset for my Razr -- is there someway I can pair the headset with my razr and use my mac (with bluephoneelite) to manage the calls (make, recieve, hangup, etc) ...


                          I can't seem to figure out a way, and would be interested to know if you had a solution.

                          Thanks!
