Default Charging and audio (Y) cable in one? [Hermes]

Hi all,

I've not got my Hermes variant yet, but would like to ask if anyone plans on using this device in the car for example; with the need to charge AND have audio out going to the car speakers.

Since there is only one connector for both charging and audio, is there some sort of 'Y' cable that 'separates' the two connections?

Thanks.

Brodit has an adapter with just charging feature:

I have just written an email to them if they could put an audio out cable as well. I will update if I get any information.

Yes, I remember seeing that one...

I would have thought more people may have wanted such an adapter- but obviously not. This is something I would use in my car all the time.

Hi Guys,

Have you considered the 'parrot' car phone kit options? They come in a variety of options, basically each is a Bluetooth car kit, that bonds with your device,transfers the contacts, mutes your cars radio, and pumps telephone calls through the car speakers also, it is in every way a fully working car kit for the Xda range.

I am biased as I retail and install them, but every customer i do installs for, they absoultey love them, as they also bond with upto 5 devices so other phones can be used as well, ie a works phone,

You should really fix your site to work with Firefox. It gives the error
Code:
Windows Media Player Plug-in Dynamic Library
The plug-in performed an illegal operation. You are strongly advised to restart Firefox
with Firefox 1.5.0.6 with Noscript 1.1.4.1

Well I think it may be your fault because I've never seen the error before and it is reproduceable.

Would these parrot kits route the [musical] audio from my device to the car speakers then? I dont really need a BT carkit since I always have my personal BT handsfree on. My main requirements are those as listed in my original post.

You'd need it to support A2DP to play music too. As far as I know there's no headphone support only headset. At least it's only headset on mine.

Default The Parrot kits and the TyTn

To Bryson:

I have a CK 3000 that has worked fine with all of my phones. However, according to a different thread there seems unfortunately to be a problem with the Tytn and some (all?) of the Parrot kits.
