    Control OVC3860 Bluetooth AVRCP with Arduino and BMW iBus [1st Steps]

    Hi Folks

    Some Words:
    My Target is to control the Audio Functions of my Smartphone via Bluetooth in my BMW E39 like a CD Player.

    I searched around some Websites for a good Bluetooth Modul, wich is easy to handle with commands from arduino.
    First i found the BC127. But it's little bit expensive.
    Yesterday i found the OVC3860. And some mounth ago, i bought a BT Audio Dongle.
    http://www.coolsmartphone.com/2013/0...dongle-review/

    So i opened the case, surprise there is inside a OVC3860 and the Pins for RX/TX are easy to use.

    I connected the Dongle to a UART CP210x Dongle and programmed a small VB6 Tool for first Test.
    Because it needs some time, till i get my arduino.

    a Riderunner Plugin should be not a problem.
    you will need a line in audio jack, to get the audio signal in your pc.
    the difficult thing is the reconnect.

    The Audio Quality is good.

    A Solution for the Reconnect could be the RTS Channel of the UART Chip. But this will need to add few electronic components.
    It is possible to turn off the unit with a command. but turning on is works only after power reset.

    I never programmed a CF Plugin.

    It is also possible to control phone functions. but you only can hear the incoming audio. it's not possible for me, to add a mic.
    a alternative solution could be such a device:

    I did a new test by connecting the audio on my notebook mic/line in port.
    i got a bad dark beep sound inside the audiosignal.
    i think there is a problem with impedance or whatever.
