If you go into the bluetooth settings does it have echo control settings? My wifes 7130 does, but my 7100 does not.

I don't know how the kit you used hooks up to your car, got the instructions you used to install so I can look at them?

You might be able to wire in a ground loop isolater to cut down and filter out any engine noise that may be happening from tapping power, and also illiminate the echo.........

Thanks for the reply, It's not engine noise that i have the problem with it seems to be echo only and it's all the time whether the car is running or not,
The kit is a universal thb bury uni car talk thats installed then you just clip on the cradle that suits your phone in my case 8700 you can have a look at the kit here BURY TECHNOLOGIES GmbH & Co. KG (http://www.bury.com/technologies/GB/hands-free/1) and the cradle here BURY TECHNOLOGIES GmbH & Co. KG (http://www.bury.com/technologies/GB/hands-free/47/UNI_Take&Talk/BlackBerry/)

I looked at the links, and have a question:

- You had to tap off the car audio, right?

If this is the case, I would double check to make sure you have a good connection regardless if you cut and soldered or t-tapped.

I still think a ground loop isolater may help you out, because although they are primamrily used for engine noise they will clean up general hums or whistle you get in electronics.

Either way it's your call but I would check with manufacturer, check the tap and finally try a ground loop isolater.

Good luck with it.

Thanks for the post Magnum

Yea i used an audio transfer loom from the back of the radio for power and so that the hands free kit will mute the radio and work of the car speakers, I have all so tried power from the battery as well after your last post but it's still there so i have picked up a ground loop isolater in the auto store to-day & i will try it to night and let you know if it still has a echo problem

Where did you buy the kit and were you able to install yourself. I have a Chevy Tahoe if that means anything.

Thanks, Ryan
