Thread: Has a car audio integration speaker phone hack been released yet?

  1. #1
    Default Has a car audio integration speaker phone hack been released yet?
    There's a lot of BMW guys (myself included) who have some sort of iPhone integration in our cars. The setup is through the dock connector... NOT the damn headphone jack like some think is ok to do.

    We can hear music, system sounds, charge, hear the call ringtone, everything except take a call on speaker phone and have it go through the car audio system.

    Yes, I know you headphone jack users can do it, I don't care (sorry). I like my dock connector setup and I refuse to have any added wires, as one is already too much.

    Has anyone released a hack to enable this? There are many of us who are extremely interested in this. I know there are many other integration methods for all cars too, not just BMW.

    Thanks,
    Brett

    I think it would be pretty obvious that if I had bluetooth, in my 1996 M3, then I would be using that and not posting this question. Plus, you really didn't answer my question either, and there's a whole community of people (beyond BMW's) that are requesting the same thing over and over.

    Thanks for your insight though.

    At which point did I say anything about my car being better than anyone else? I simply asked a question about a whole range of BMW's that are in need of this one tweak so integrated audio solutions work fully. This also applies to other automakers that have similar integrations available... which, I do not know entirely, I only own one car.

    I went over the first post so in depth as to weed out all the previous issues with threads on this topic before. I'm looking for a specific solution, not someone else solution. I don't have bluetooth, if I had, I wouldn't of posted this issue. If there was a bluetooth solution for my old, unreliable car (as you put it), I wouldn't of posted the thread...

    I'm hugely into gadgets, I know ALL the solutions out there for the iPhone. I want a specific answer (if someone has it) for THIS issue only. Myself and many many many other people are waiting on this fix.

    Jeff, what kind of car do you own? Track it? 1/4mi it?

    My V8 E150 eats BMW's for breakfast, Is this a specific enough answer for you "NO"

    Why not put in a request someone might take up the challenge.

    Your cargo van huh?

    I hadn't made a request because so many people have already expressed interest in such a solution I figured someone had something in the works.

    As far as you know it's no, but maybe someone IS working on it and that's what this thread is about.

    I would, but they dont make one with the correct integration on my year of car. 2000+ have OEM solutions, and it's already bad enough I have the iPod kit non-oem in my car as it is.

    I know, i'm an OEM whore. I like my stuff neat and simple. It's just a small little hack that everyone is asking for... that's all it would take.

    I'll post this in the request forum and see what happens. Someone will undoubtedly say repost though
