    HELP W/ PhoCO and Mic

    I been using phonecontrol in my car and I've tried searching for this but havent been able to find any good information everyone is saying to use the Logitech mic which i have not tried, but i have tried a labtech, and 3 other companies, my problem is that everytime i'm in the car talkin to someone on the phone, they can hear themselves talkin, there is an echo that can be heard. Also they are compaining that my volume is too low, but my mic is set on max. I wanted to know if therei s a certain type of mic i can use that will get rid of this problem where the people i talk to wont be able to hear them selfs back. and also a mic that is better at picking up me talking thanks and sorry if this topic was already mentioned i couldnt find the exact answer to what i wanted.

    The echo could be caused by the feedback from the speakers in your car. A good noise cancelling mic might help. I have a T637 and when I use it with my bluetooth headset (HBH600) I have the same echo problem as you described (the person on the other end talking could hear an echo of themself). After searching www.horwardforums.com for answers, I found that this might be a problem with my phone. The echo varies depending on which area of the City I use my phone and headset. If the echo is really bad, I just stop using the headset.

    Looked into this further seems its a known challange in the area of headsets and car kits. What we need is Echo cancellation, and noise reduction microphones.

    The new bluetooth headsets have this technology built in and some car kits. I searched about 15 pages in Google with "Echo cancellation, and noise reduction microphones".

    I saw a lot of table top boxes and car kits, bluetooth headsets but no stand alone mics.

    If anyone finds one please post.

    The reason for the echo is because the caller's voice is coming through our car speakers which in trun the mic is picking up as well.. Obviously.. If we turn the volume down on our carputers then they won't hear as much of an echo but then we can't hear them that good.. Hmm... We need one of those mic's!!!

    The Nokia Mic that comes with all the nokia Hf kits has Echo cancelling. They work superbly.

    Sure you can pick them up seperatly off ebay or the likes.

    The part number is Nokia HFM-8

    You'll probably have to splice it into your mic cable. As the nokia cable has a 1.5 mm jack plug. Where as yours morst probably has the 3.5mm jack.

    Hope this helps.
    Another quality post from Dyl.
