    Bluetooth

    I see that Bluetooth is listed for the upcoming G4. Is bluetooth expected to be working at launch? Or will this still be a coming feature?

    Currently, bluetooth works with a few glitches. It should be fully functioning by the time we release the G4. It will also work in the StreetDeck release shortly thereafter.

    The QA team has been able to make phone calls from the G4 using their phone book on their phone.

    I'm still waiting for the details on this, so please don't bombard me with questions asking which phones will be supported and what features will be supported. As soon as I know more, I will post them.

    Please post on the forums! Chances are, someone else has or will have the same questions as you!

    Is this still the case? The Bluetooth option seems to vanished off the order page when I was going to place my order.

    Nevermind, found the bluetooth adaptor for preorder elsewhere in the store and added it in with my order.

    Now to wait for the UPS guy sometime next week :-)

    We are still doing compatibility testing. You can see the current compatibility list here. http://www.mp3car.com/wiki/index.php...oth_Phone_List

    We are accepting preorders for the bluetooth adapter alone now, but its not yet ready for shipping with the G4.

    Just to elaborate on this, if you order with the Bluetooth dongle it will hold up your entire order until we ask if you want to join the compatibility testing program. If you want your order to ship right away don't order it with Bluetooth. The dongle is clearly labeled a pre-order item and it will delay your entire order.

    Ahh, ok. I thought it would mean the bluetooth dongle would ship when it was ready separately.


    Thanks for the clarification.

    As far as changing my order, it looks like I can no longer edit it on the web due to "NOTE: This order has already shipped or has reached the final stages of processing. Therefore this order is no longer editable". I'll send an e-mail to sales to get the bluetooth dongle removed from the order.

    Is the dongle technically supposed to work with tethering for internet as well as bluetooth phone calling?

    While the BT dongle is capable of this, the drivers that are writted specifically to interface with streetdeck won't allow tethering for internet or any other bluetooth functionality.
    A second dongle would be required for that.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
