Thing is the calls arent great for the other caller (I have to put on loudspeaker for the caller to hear me speak), possibly due to sensitivity of the DHD mic.
Anyway, I was wondering does anyone know where I might get a good long AUX + mic cable such as the one that comes with this car holder ... http://www.griffintechnology.com/pro...seat-handsfree
I want to see if this will have a better mic sensitivity and pick up my voice better while driving.
You need something like this:
The price on this one is a rip-off but that's basicaly what you need to get it running. Plug it in the phone, then plug the cable you already have installed in the headphones output and you need to buy a good quality microphone, plug it in the other female connector and then install it in your car so it can pick up your voice.
Or if you don't use your stock headphones and you are good with the soldering gun, you can buy two female 3.5mm stereo connectors, cut the headphones cable and make the y-cable yourself. Or even use the headphone's microphone and install just one female jack, connected to the headphones' cables. You can try if the headphones' mic will work - just plug them in, point the microphone to yourself where you intend to install it, start the engine and call someone.
