    I also mourn the loss of the hardwired carkits.

    I much prefer them to the new wireless bluetooth ones, but I can see why it's happened. Simple ecomomics as far as manufacturers are concerned.

    It is much easier to just stick a bluetooth protocol into a phone rather than design, test and manufacturer different forms of physical ones.

    Although the way they keep changing the protocols their phones have kind of defeats that advantage.

    However I have abolutely no idea where all this conspiracy stuff is coming from.


    @Sap_plus,

    Please try to refrain from swearing at, insulting individuals or countries in your posts.

    I respectfully suggest you re-read the rules especially the ones regarding flaming.

    And yes, while the US constitution advocates free speech, this is a privately owned forum and the owners can impose whatever rules they like and if you wish to continue to be a member you have to abide by them.

    Yep, the constitution only says congress cannot write any laws infringing free speech. It doesn't protect you against the Enforcer! laff.

    Criticising doubtful typical collective acting patterns doesn't make me 'anti-this-or-that', it's just what it is: criticism, aiming at making the people in question to wake up to some healthy self-criticism.

    Also, I basically have a constructive attitude, so when I get confronted here with people who either can't comprehend or refuse to, instead always focus on new methods for deconstructive behaviour, in order to confuse the interested reader thereby destroying the thread, then this will provoke a more or less suitable response from my side.

    I am a cosmopolitan and polyglot individual, so your easy-for-you labels ('anti', 'ophobe') just won't stick.

    If you during my efforts to get where I now am had gone through what I went through and had made all the experiences that I have made, then this would give also you reasons for second thoughts. Especially when usually qualified dealers/workshops don't help you but not only let you down, but kick you when you fall. And when you manage to get almost there through qualified private assistance, then apparently the state comes in - a nightly swiss 'statsi' blitz, as described.

    Finally, if you agree that the only change is that cabling was replaced by bluetooth (we also lost model-specific carkits, and we lost the external antenna contact which made a *galvanic* connection to the roof antenna possible - presently we have to put up with an inductive such), then this would mean that those of us who prefer the classic formula still could have what we had before - only based on bluetooth rather than cables, right?

    And you would agree that 'my' construction principle does have significant advantages over a smartphone, no?

    Out of curiosity, how would a galvanic connection to an antenna work exactly? If it is electrically isolated, it would not work as an antenna would it?

    Yes model specific car kits are a rarity, but then there is no need really with a bluetooth connection.

    Although I admit these universal holders are naff.

    However BMW and I believe Mercedes do have model specific car kits to go with their bluetooth connection. (not sure if they add an inductive aerial loop or not).

    I have no idea who this post resides in carPC news because its only minimally related to car PCs at all. I'm moving it to OT.

    Missunderstanding?

    A couple of minutes ago, I informed the 'enforcer' that I tried to delete this ID (sap_plus), in favour of the new ID - ueber_alles_.) -, but it wasn't possible So I invited him to do it on my behalf.

    After the experience made, I just wanted to make a new start. I hope this is not verboten, is it?! .)
