Direct Connect and IHF1000 Car Kit
I've searched for this information on the forum with no luck finding a direct answer.

I have a 7100i and a Motorola IHF1000 Bluetooth kit in the car. The kit works like a charm for the phone. However; when a Direct Connect call comes in the phone chirps, but he DC audio never comes through the car kit speaker. I have to click the thumb wheel and select "Activate Speakerphone" to push the audio to the phone's speaker.

I suspect I can also put the car kit in privacy mode.

Is there a setting somewhere that can correct this?

This is the main reason I have not bought this rig yet, I too have searched and found nothing. The folks at motorola say it will work, but the folks at Audi also say my 7100i should work w/ D/C in my A6 w/ built-in BT but is when I am paired to the BT in the Audi the tele works great but as soon as I get an incoming d/c it makes a noise and crashes the berry. I wanted to get this kit for my other car but am hesitant for this very reason. I use the dc as much as the phone, so as far as bt solutions go the only one that works sure fire out of the box is the transportable speaker type. While it does not integrate very well with the car in terms of it being tied into the stereo, or steering wheel controls, it works great w/ phone and direct connect. and at 79 bucks it is a veritible bargain.

You said:

I assume you mean there is a BT update for the Blackberry? If so, where is it, and please do tell us what happens.

No I was speaking of my car kit. I was unaware of the posibility of a Bluetooth version upgrade for a phone... I should have been more specific.
