Baehr Bluetooth

Just wondering if anyone knew of a bluetooth adapter for Baehr intercoms. I had thought that they were going to (or did) release one.

Thanks,
Brian

Yes. Contact RaffyK on the site and he can give you details.

His site is www.motogear4you.com and he sells the Baehr units. I saw the Bluetooth unit at his vendor booth at CCR last week.

I did just get a reply from Baeh USA. Here is what they said:

"Brian,

We had an initial order of three BluePhone modules as a trial, and they sold out almost immediately. We have more on order and should get them in a few weeks. They list for $316.95, plus S&H."


Holy dollar signs Batman! $316!!!!

Might be my tax for wanting to use the BT features of the Nav III.

There is a cheaper option that I know works.

You can get the Motorola visor clip bluetooth module, use the headphone jack on that to wire into the cell phone input on a Baehr (or Autocom), and use that for bluetooth integration. The downside is that you either need to wire power to the unit by cannibalizing a cigarette lighter adapter, or just remember to recharge the battery from time to time.


Enjoy longer talk times and twice the volume with the HF820. The unique Multifunction (Call) Button on the top of the device answers, ends, and initiates calls while also controlling 3-way calling and call hold. For extra mobility, the HF820 clips to your carís sun-visor and even your belt when you wish to continue the conversation outside of the vehicle. And with up to 5 hours of talk time and 100 hours of standby time you can be certain that your calls will not be cut short.

Jeff,

Do you think then that the Nav III will see this as the bluetooth headset that it needs to be able to place calls? Will the Nav then route all signals through this essentially rendering the hard wiring to the Nav from the Baehr useless?

I am still not sure what the Nav III doesn't have the ability to use a wired OR wireless connection.

Thanks,
Brian

The NAV III would be in place of the Baehr Bluetooth unit. If you have the Garmin 2730 or BMW Nav III, the GPS will act as that Bluetooth unit for you. You connect the GPS to your intercom, and your phone connects to the GPS.

That is what I am doing right now. I have the Nav III wired to the intercom, and I then connect my Blackberry to the GPS via BT. Everything works fine and I even get my phonebook displayed on the screen of the Nav. However, when I try to dial with the GPS, I get a message saying the I must connect a BT headset before I can make a call and it will not dial.

The f'ing manual that comes with the Nav III is nearly useless.

I would assume that the audio jack on the Nav III is both for a speaker and a mic and that would suffice. I am thinking that it is only for a speaker, and it requires the BT headset so that it can have a mic.

No, that would require a multi-channel bluetooth (to support the phone and a headset).

Are you sure the jack on the Nav III isn't a 3-pole jack (to support mic as well)?

Actually, I was wrong:
