Re: Navigator III with blue tooth phone
I needed to be able to answer urgent business calls while riding to/from work, so went on the hunt for the best helmet headset (bluetooth) for the purpose. The mental block that consumed me was how to pair/hear the bluetooth transmissions of turn by turn directions from the NavIII as well as the phone at the same time. I knew there had to be a product to do both, but pairing one or the other was the end result.
Then, I read something on this board that made me think outside the box.
If you pair the headset/helmet to the NavIII, and then pair the phone to the NavIII.
Viola! Options appear to control the phone, like: view phonebook, see who is calling (CID), send/receive calls, etc.
Now, I am using the Scala Q2 and really have one hell of a system that I feel comfortable SAFELY operating.
The only note... not all cell phones work well with the NavIII. My Nokia E71x wouldn't hang up, or kept disconnecting. BlackBerry 9000 works perfectly. Experiment!
