bluetooth dongle, any compatible with microsoft or widcomm stack. im using a cheap one with microsoft stack.
the way it works is, the pi talks to the android phone, you get, phonebook, call log, phone controls, sms send and recieve. here's the SkinCMD.txt.
As ElCamino explained. You can download Remote phone Call trial from GooglePlay and install in your phone. Then the phone application will guide you to the link to download CallCenter to your PC (the old version - waiting for the new one to be released in 1-2 weeks time). You can test by wifi or bluetooth.
The licenced version costs 4.5 Euro. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...G9uZVRyaWFsIl0.
Give it a try.
the app and this pi work very well together ,,
i have recived the latest apk , for andriod , ,, which will be released on google play very soon ,,
so i would wait till we release this pi ,, then you know , the app on google is the latest
we won't release untill it is...
the app your looking for Just phone or call center,,,,
you buy the app @ £4.00 or download the trial 15 days ,,,
once its on your phone , you will be shown a popup on your phone to where you can get the callcenter app from for the pc side of things
connection cn be made by BT or wifi
i can not say what the future holds for just phone , but in 4 weeks we have gone from just makeing calls , to having sms now
so anythiing could happen
i agree with El , i have a BT on pc , connected to phone and one of these visor bt audio devices for audio and mic,,
this may change in the future as i know Thomas is wanting to add audio through pc ...
anyway ,, we will be on hand upon release to help any of you out
Did I get this right? Accepting and dialing calls works through the PC with this?
And Android phones can be connected to a bluetooth headset and the PC at the same time?
yes and yes ,, pi released in plugins thread

I've been concidering adding phone function to my carpc for some time now. This looks interesting...
Let me see if I understand this. With this meathod, you use microsoft or widcomm and NOT bluesoiel???
Add a bluetooth dongle to the carpc. Any bluetooth dongle will work.
Add CallCenter and .net 4 software to pc.
Add the remote phone call app to the android phone.
Can this meathod be used within the RR frontend? I use the BMV2 skin. It has a built in phone control. I have never used it but it would be nice if I could get this embeded into the skin.
So If you receive a call, does it mute the music or drop the volume down to a presset level?
Do you really need a handsfree kit? It seems like a pc mic and the car speakers would be a better option.

That clears things up. Thank you...
So without skin support, a separate window will pop up on the screen when a call comes in correct? This is how it seems to be working on my desktop pc.
If you want to make a call, I am assuming you would need to minimize RR to open the call center?
I don't have a parrot yet but it looks like they have a green and a red button. I can assume these are for accept/end calls. If you were to receive a call, the call center software has an accept/ignore option. Would you be able to accept an incoming call by the touch screen on the pc or would you need to press the button on the parrot?
