Bluetooth and Nav III Update

Just wanted to update the situation with the Nav III and bluetooth.

I purchased the Baehr Bluephone from Raffy and have it installed. I am able to make the connection between the Nav III and the Bluephone and my Blackberry and am able to place and receive calls. This part works pretty well. I am still working out some kinks with the mating process of the Bluephone and the Nav III but they are minor and should be resolved soon.

What kind of irks me right now is that the Nav III will not pass its navigation voice prompts through the bluetooth interface. I was lead to believe by Garmin that it would. At this point I believe that I am going to have to re-install my cable that goes from the external speaker jack of the Nav III to the Baehr. I hate removing the tupperware!!!!

I am hoping that this will resolve the voice prompt issue.

I just spoke with Caryl at Baehr USA. You will need to hardwire the Garmin to the Baehr unit for audio.

Baehr AG is aware of the interface issues and I believe they are working on an upgrade to the bluetooth adapter.
