Use car kit microphone not HTC phone built in

Post by tmead on Tue Oct 15, 2013 9:48 am

Using a basic and ancient Nokia CK car kit, HTC phones insist on using the phone mic rather than the car kit one, which gives rubbish call quality unless you hold the phone by your ear. My wife's HTC desire did it, and now my HTC one does it too. Sadly i have to report that the iphone 4 worked much better in the car than either of these.
I haven't yet had a chance to test, but will SoundAbout allow me to force the phone to use the car kit microphone when connected ? Seems like the mono microphone overide should do this ?

I see a few different models of the Nokia CK car kit. It looks like it may support both Bluetooth A2DP (for media), Bluetooth mono SCO (for phone calls).

Typically anytime you are on a phone call when connected to a Bluetooth SCO device, Android will try to use the Bluetooth device microphone.

I'm surprised it is using the phone microphone and still sending the audio to the Bluetooth device into the car speakers. Is that correct?

SoundAbout has a free trial period, so give it a shot and see if the default settings work.

Many thanks for the prompt response ! It reports on the phone as a ck7w.

I'll check as soon as I can.

It looks like that model car kit has compatibility issues with a lot of non-Nokia phones.
