  • PhoneControl Software

    Hi guys,

    I assembled my CarPC almost one year ago and the only anoying thing to me was, that I couldn't find a useful peace of software to control my mobile phone over the CarPC. As a professional software developer (that's what I ought to be )) I worte my own code to get what I wanted.

    Basically I've started to write the application to support the SonyEricsson T610. But as for the fact, that (almost) all mobile phones are (more or less ) compatible with the GSM standard, I've improved the software to support other brands too.

    So, this application is still growing and improving and if you'd like to give it a try, your welcome. This application is freeware, so you don't have to care about the costs.

    If you want to download it, go to the PhoneControl website. To get a preview, look here.

    So, if you like the software and you want help me improving the english part, don't hasiate to drop me a mail or post a message.

    I dont understand much of this program since everything is in German but it looks like a cool software..
    Infact this is the software I have been looking for but as I dont understand German I cant use it

    Please post update message if you decide to translate the program to English

    Do you know if it works with Nokia 6600 ?

    Thanks

      and you can configure it for bluetooth? i checked out your website, but the bluetooth part is in german (my father speaks german, but can't read it). if you need help translating, or anything at all, PM me. you software looks awesome, i'll help you out for use of it.

        Hey guys, please refer to the documentation (PhoneControl.PDF). It's all in english, I hope Only the screenshots you see contain all German text (cause I'm lazy too ).

        If you take a closer look onto the website, you will see, that beside the German text there is a English part too (it's marked with a English flag above )

        @Nokia6600
        It should work with your Nokia too but I'm not sure. Give it a try, we'll see
        If you've got problems, don't hesitate to tell me and send me a copy of the PhoneCtlLog.txt. Then I can tell you more.

        @dim8
        Yes, it is basically written for Bluetooth. Sorry about the connection part which indeed is available only in German... but I guess, the pictures will do for the moment
        A short overview of what you've got to do to connect over BT is also contained in the manual (PDF).

          You should use babelfish for translating your website, it works great for me.

            Can't get my Nokia 6600 to work with the software but my girlfriens T610 works perfectly. Nokia sucks when it comes to following standards etc so i think this is a problem with the phone and not with your software.

            Are you going to add support for reading incoming sms messages on the screen as well.. ? That would be awsome

            I see that you get the picture on the screen of the person you have in you phonebook. How do I anable that ? Doesnt work on the T610

              @Nokia6600
              I know that Nokia mobiles doesn't work perfectly but they do most of the job (as I mentioned in the documentation). If you enable loggin (how to describes the documentation) and send me the logfile, I can try to figure out what it is.

              Yes, PhoneControl does read an incoming SMS as well. Simply tap on the panel (as it says in the documentation).

              Picutres of the caller are not phone dependend. They are simply stored in the "Photos" subdirectory (how... you know, it's in the ... right... documentation).

              BTW: Did I already mention to read the documentation??

                    Awesome. I think that it would be even better if you could get that code implemented into MediaCar or MediaEngine. But either way very nice job.

                    People should also note that the SE T610 is just the european version of the T616 and should work fine.

                      man, I was all excited, till I got to the part where it doesnt work well with the 3650 (no speakerphone).

                      I gotta get a T616.

                        Thank you.

                        As far as I know, PhoneControl works with both, MediaCar and MediaEngine (as an external application). Some of the German users confirm that.
                        As far as I'm aware, neither supports any kind of addin's or plugin's (please correct me if I'm wrong). So the integration would be a quite tricky thing.

                        Thanks also for the advice with th T616. I will add this one to the list of compatible mobile phones.

                          By integrated i meant as a full part of the software, so its more integrated.
