Default External mic?

Please Login to Remove!

When driving I like to plug my blackberry into my car's AUX-IN port. However that doesn't work very well - I can her everyone nice, loud and clear through my cars speakers, but they can't hear me that well because Blackberrys internal mic isn't all that sensitive.

So I'm wondering, is there some sort of adapter that will let me use an external mic and still utilize AUX-IN port?

Why not use a BT ear piece or get a car BT Kit?

Doesn't really solve the problem, but either would be a good work around.

There are BT speaker kits that work fairly well.
Motorola T305 Portable Bluetooth Car Kit is one.

The problem with these BT kits, is that my car doesn't have phone connector, only AUX.

That means that with a BT kit I would have to use the external speaker that's supplied with them. And I really don't want an ugly speaker in my vehicles interior. Also, I doubt it could be anywhere near as loud as my cars speaker system.

The Moto clips on the visor. Plenty loud for me and I am about deaf in one ear from all the years of flying.
