Blackberry Devices have Voice Dialing

All,

Thought I would share some of my findings.

I work for a major mobile network provider and have played with the RIM blackberry devices.

The RIM 8100, 8800, 8820 (on the GPRS/EDGE networks) support voice dialing.

Here is what I did.

Created a cable with a 2.5mm stereo male on each side. In the middle I have attached a mute/momentary switch. By holding down the switch for 2 seconds, prompts for voice dialing. I can say, "call John Doe Home" or "call 201-555-1212", or "call John Doe Work".

I attach the cable to my BB and also to my cell phone port on the comm system. The mute/momentary switch hangs loosely outside the audments box. The switch acts as a mute, prompt for voice dialing, and a disconnect.

I have tested this at 60+ mph and it works great.

I also have this working with my Garmin 2820, buts thats another story.

Do you have the wiring schematic for doing this. Sounds like a great idea.

I took 2 blackberry headsets and soldered them together, joining them at the mute button. I will post a picture tomorrow. I do not recall exactly, but by pressing the mute button, joins the tip (mic) and the sleeve (ground).

I have tested this with my 2002 LT and a 2005 LT.

Ok,

Attached are the pics.

Please disregard previous post.

Here is what I did.

I went to the dollar store and bought 2, 2.5mm stereo headsets. Used the mute button from one of the headsets and soldered the second set to the mute button. When you press the mute button, it grounds the tip to the sleeve.
