BlackBerry, HF820, VC II, and Nav III
Ok, after several threads, questions, answers, reseach, and my limited electronic deductive ability or lack there of... and the arrival of the HF-820
Set up is a 2006 K1200LT with the VOICE COM II and NAV III. Also have a blue tooth able BlackBerry 7100i. Issue is want to use the BB thru the NAV III and VC II. The NAV III even picks up the BB address book. Problem is even though the Nav III and BB would pair there was no sound thru the comm system even with the phone attached via the cell phone cable to the VC II. Enter the Motorola HF-820 'car kit'.
So (important to do the following in the order shown):
1. Enable Bluetooth on the BB. Pair the phone to the NAV III. Important to have the phone find the NAV III.
2. When NAV III asked to pair another device say yes or otherwise have it then look for the HF-820 and pair to it.
3. Plug the ear piece of the HF-820 to the phone input on the COMM II as if it were the cell phone.
Set the NAV III to pair automatically. Set the BB to Always Trust the Nav III.
Results were the ability to use the BB via the helmet headset and mic. Answered, ended, and initiated calls using the Nav III touch screen. Incoming calls would mute the sound system. Would have to mute manually for out going calls. The above is from a limited test in the garage with the bike running. So I have not extensively tested it on the road. But will post any issues. It will be about two weeks before I can ride. Business trip next week.
Would appreciate any input or others experience.
