    Got My Guru but.....

    Well I ordered one along with the Logitech diNovo Mini bluetooth keyboard. Bad news is that apparently newer Chryslers are not true double din height even though places sell double din kits for them. I guess I have to have my trim cut to get the Guru to fit along with some other minor mounting issues.

    I have the Guru setup on the bench. Can't get the above bluetooth keyboard to pair with it. The Guru see's it and I can do the number sequence to pair them but after that it fails. The BT KB pairs up just fine on my Toughbook with built in bluetooth. Don't know why it won't work with the Guru. I don't want to use a wired KB on it!!!

    I should add the diNovo works fine with its plug in usb BT receiver but why should I use that when the Guru already has BT built in.

    Any ideas as how to get it to pair up?

    Fiberoptic, question for you regarding the built in radio in the unit. I have wired the GURU into my 2007 Chrysler Sebring Limited using teh PAC C2R-CHY3. The way its wired in is with only the front left/right audio being hooked up. This is per the instructions of the C2R-CHY3 as the car has a built in amplifier and the CAN BUS controls the fade and balance. I am not getting any radio audio out of the built in GURU radio but I am getting computer sounds.

    Does the GURU split computer and radio audio front to back perhaps or do I have some other problem at hand?

    There is a volume slider and mute button in windows for the radio. I would imagine the mute box is checked. There is also a basic radio application on the hard drive that should work to allow you to do basic radio tunning using the scan/seek buttons on the front of the unit.

    There have been reports of the Dinovo having mixed results with foreign blue tooth hardware (bt receiver other than the one that came with the dinovo) . We will test this as time allows. One would think the dinovo would work without a lot of pain.

    While I'm new to being registered here I've been visiting off and on for a couple of years. I was reading over the specs for this very interesting new piece of equipment and found the following a bit troubling:

    Freq. Response -3dB 500Hz-10kHz

    This is for the built-in 22 watt/ch amp. The 3dB variation I could deal with but please tell me that the frequency range of 500Hz to 10kHz is some sort of mistake! No bass and no highs.

    The specs are not given for the pre-amp outputs - are they any better?

    Thought it would be helpful to have a link for curious minds to find out more info: mp3Car Store

    This is a typo. The spec is 20~20KHz. We will fix this later. I assume the preamps are similar but i don't have that documented.

    I still am unable to get the internal car stereo to produce any audio. I am using the speaker outputs on the power plug (I am not using the 5.1 Surround Sound plug at all). Windows XP produces audio just fine though I have noticed that the volume knob goes from very quiet to loud much too fast.

    I am running the car radio program. I can toggle the volume off and on with this application and I still get no audio. It locks onto a station when seeking so I know it is seeing the local station.

    I tested all four speaker outputs while in Windows XP and all produce sound. Windows XP volume slider works just fine, and moves with the volume knob on the Guru. The volume slider in the radio program also moves with the Guru volume knob.

    I am at a loss........

    Right Click the volume icon.
    Open Volume Control
    Check Advanced Controls
    Click Properties
    Click Recording & Playback confirm that all of the sliders are visible and properly selected.

    One of the sliders should be labeled FM radio. It is probably muted or the volume is very low.

    The attached screen shots are from my desktop so you can't see exactly what I am talking about but it should get you started.

    If you can't figure it out based on these shots, we can get shots of the actual unit within the next few days.
