    Onstar and Bluetooth

    I have a 2003 Acura TL with the ONSTAR system. It is the "Analog" version and cannot be upgraded, so in 2008, it will be totally worthless. (I never used it anyway because of the cost). I see that people are talking about hooking a bluetooth connection into the built in microphone and speakers in the vehicle. I am definately interested in doing that, but am not much of an electronics guy. I do however have the schematics from a service manual for the the ONSTAR system and would be happy to send them to whoever is a genius and would be willing to come up with a good solution to this problem. Let me know. Mike (Guest)

    What you have to do is one of the following,

    Find the MIC and the Speaker wires for your car, and then connect them to a blue tooth headset where the MIC and Speaker connect to, respectively, and hope that the speaker and the mic are compatible with the now taken apart BT headset, OR,

    You can hack the BT headset, and extend the wires for the MIC and Speaker and mount them where the MIC and Speaker are now mounted in your car. The second option will cause UNBELIEVABLY low audio. This may be overcome with another, larger speaker, but again, it must be compatible with the hacked headset.

    Option 1 is best, because the cars speaker and mic are designed to be used in the cars environemtn.

    Care to just post an image instead?

    Do the above links not apply to your onstar system?

    Low audio?

    Okay, I was also thinking about doing this. However, I was going to go the cheaper route and use the headphone jack in the phone instead of bluetooth. Basically wire the mic to the mic wire, speaker/radio to the speaker wire, and hangup/disconnect button to the OnStar button. The phone would then be controlled via voice commands which it can already do. I was curious if this would also result in the "UNBELIEVABLY low audio" you were referring to? Thanks!

    The speaker and mic on a BT headset are both low level signals. Likely not going to drive a large speaker of any type well. Since this is a carpc forum, why not take the obvious route and just attach the onstars systems mic to the carpc. Then you can use the carpc to interface the cell phone with a BT dongle and employ existing software for that purpose.

    I've been researching this myself, with no real luck. I'd be very interested in seeing how it turns out.

    I've always wanted to do this...

    I didn't even realize what this forum was about until you mentioned "carpc", nor did I have any idea what "carpc" meant. I've actually always wanted to have some sort of PC in my car. I'm a computer programmer and former PC Support/Helpdesk guru so I know a good bit. When I first heard the term "carpc" I thought it referred to the computer inside the car with all the repair codes and such. I'm glad I was wrong.
    This is definitely interesting. I'm not too familiar with BT (devices are too expensive IMHO). However, I AM familiar with linux and computer hardware and my phone can interface with BT devices. I've been looking for an excuse to buy a USB BT dongle for my laptop. :P Also, if I did take this route, I could also take advantage of the OnStar's "free" GPS system and possibly hook that up as well.
    Anyway, I guess my question would be is there open source software to basically use your laptop as a BT "headset" device?
    Also, wouldn't a simple amplifier solve the low sound problem with using wires as well?
    Sorry if these questions have already been posted, I'm going through the wireless forum on this site now looking for more info. Thanks!

    Okay so I may as well post this in here... Is there a device that will allow communication on the Class II GM bus that will imitate the integrated phone? My Seville doesn't have onstar but has the ability to have the integrated phone. I think if I could find a Class II device that will tell the HU that there is a phone call it will solbe my problem (i know it will). Now the reason I am posting this in here is because OnStar uses the same class II bus to communicate to the radio. If you can tell it to amplify the audio + and audio- from the cell unit, the onstar unit would do so and send it to the head unit.. With that ability, you have the option of hacking into the audio signals from the cell unit.
