    yeah, I've been lokoing at a way to switch thaton. also, skype has this feature. my guess is that it uses the windows api to do that, but that's a stab in the dark.

    any windows programmers in the house?

    I don't think it's build into windows.. I mean, if it were, it would be easy to do. I see nothing of the sort!?

    I went back and looked. It IS included in Windows. At least it's in my version of windows xp.

    Start up Windows Messenger (actually open the app, don't just leave it sitting in the system tray)
    Click Tools
    Click Audio and Video Tuning Wizard
    Click Next
    It's on the first page of options.

    I don't know how/if it's integrated in other apps, but it's there as a core windows component just waiting for someone to exploit it.

    Yea, I seen it in messenger but there is no mention of echo cancelling or like you said.. If that makes it universal for all programs using the mic and what not.

    In the tuning wizard there is a checkbox for "I am using headphones" - that DISABLES the AEC (acoustic echo cancellation) feature... which implies that for Windows Messenger at least, it's on by default.

    Going to go with this for now, with voice recognition the same issues come up. This way no echo for handsfree cell or voice recognition.

    It would work like a walkie talkie on your end. The listener would not suffer from echo, it just opens up the mic when u want to talk.

    Yea I can see using that for voice recognition but for a phone call that would ROYALLY suck..

    Having to push a button (and hold it in) for every second I want to speak.

    Well it's installed now and works great, no echo no issues. Works for both phone and voice recongnition. I made sure the momentary switch was small and easy to push with little or no effort. I will post some pics tomorrow. The button is located strategically by my power window button so no real work on my part to push it to talk.

    I agree it is not be best, would be much better to just have handsfree, but I dont see any other way around this until someone comes up with a better solution. Another way would have been to buy a Parrot Handsfree kit, but was not willing to spend hundreds of dollars and have no integration with the CarPC. This cost me about 10 bucks.

    One of the main features of my carputer was supposed to be phone integration, but this echo makes for a poor solution. Before I resort to a switch I thought I'd look into other solutions.

    Like others, I tired getting the logitech mic (no imporvement), so now I'm looking for VOIP speakerphones, since they actually boast echo cancelation. They're a bit pricey, but if it really works, I'd get one. Here are the ones I found so far:

    http://www.voipsupply.com/product_in...oducts_id=1651
    http://www.voipsupply.com/product_in...roducts_id=749

    anyone have experience with any of these or other simliar products? I'd check out sound cards, but since I'm using a laptop, I would need either a USB or pcmcia one. Haven't found any yet, anyone have any links?

    thx.
