    use carpc as a bluetooth headset

    i was just wondering if anyone knew if it is possible to use a pc with a bluetooth dongle as a 'virtual' headset for a bluetooth phone......

    if this is possible it would be much easier than installing a dedicated hadsfree kit..

    I have heard some bluetooth dongles support using the pc as a head set and some don't. If anyone knows more about this it would be a great help.

    What bluetooth hardware are you using street knight?

    in theory you could have a bluetooth dongle for phonebook use and so on, and then buy a bluetooth headest and hack it open and plumb it into the appropriate audio sockets for a conventional headset, the phone then communicates with the pc using the bluetooth dongle, then the audio is via the phones headset, just wire the answer button on the headset to a dash switch that mutes the other audio as you answer it

    I heard, that it depends on the phone if it can be remoted-controlled from a bluetooth device. It has to have a spezial profile for bluetooth remote controlling. Some of the new nokia support this and the new siemens, I don't know if others do. Nokia has a bluetooth device for cars with a display but it supports only nokia.
