Default Voice Dialling with Parrot CK3100

I wonder if I am doing something stoopid here with my new HTC Desire (on Orange UK)

The phone is successfully connected via Bluetooth to the Parrt car kit.

What I used to do with my Nokias was click the green button on the car kit, say the name of the person I want to call and then the phone would call that person.

That doesn't seem to work with the Desire. Nothing happens when I click the green button on the car kit.

Any clues as to how to make this happen on the car kit?

(Once a call is established by dialling, the car kit works properly. But dialling the number on my phone is illegal...)

regards,
/alan

Bluetooth voice dialing is not currently supported.

This is a real issue that HTC/Android need to sort out quick.

I raised a tech support ticket with HTC and basically they have no solution.

I will admit, it is annoying and it's not something you'd readily ask about when getting the phone (as it is such a standard feature on most phones). Luckily I'd seen the reviews and expected it.

Google search via bluetooth would do it, with some some modifications.

Wow... that came as a surprise to me.

Seems to me that it's something that is a basic phone feature... something so basic I wouldn't have considered even checking for it. V disappointing.

Oh well, such is life.

We can all hope it will be a feature included in the next update of Android, expected this year.

The two recurring issues people seem to have with the phone is this and apps storage on the flash card. Google would be silly not to do something about it.

The CK3100 has voice dialling itself. I know it's less than ideal, but I am in the same position and I have started to use the Parrot voice dialling instead of the handset voice dialling. It works

Wink Solution for voice dialling.

Hi danmiddle, I had the same problem and got around it by downloading Vlingo. It fills the gap very well and offers a good handsfree bluetooth connection to the parrot until the next Android update.

Isn't it a relief, and a frustration, when you realise it isn't you doing something 'stoopid' but the manufacturers!

This hasn't been fixed in v.2.2 of Android and neither have Parrot dealt with it. I had a Bury loose kit and HTC Desire worked fine with that so although it seems HTC/Android may be deficient so are Parrot.

Fingers crossed for a fix in v2.3 but I'm not holding my breath...

Hi Jim99
I Know it’s a late reply but I have just bought a Desire S.
I would like to know how you do this as Vlingo told me that the Bluetooth device needs to be A2DP compliant. Parrot have assured me that the CK3100 LCD is not. They did tell me that the CK3100 should work with the Desire direct but so far I haven’t managed this. I have upgraded the Parrot software to V5.0. They pair ok but when I press the button on the steering wheel and speak, nothing happens. If I hold the button down the ‘phone will redial the last number called. Just realised I should have waited for someone to answer to see if the voice came over the parrot or the ‘phone.
Anyway all I want to do is press the button and speak the contact’s name and the ‘phone dials the number. Just like it did with my old NokiaN73. I don’t want to have to record a voice tag on the Parrot for all of my contacts.
Regards

seems something rather basic and a safety issue: the simplest cell phone can do it, iphone can do it, but the android phone will not pair. V-lingo seems to work but I don't have a data plan so that is out. No answer, just annoyed.

Don't know if this counts now but since I rooted my Desire and reflashed it with Gingervillian a few weeks back the voice dialling feature now works with my Parrot 3100 kit! It also runs a lot better too as I used to have issues with the bluetooth volume getting stuck too low (when it wasn't) which meant I had to turn it all the way down then all the way back up again. That fault has gone now. The whole system is louder now as well. I can't stress how much better the phone has been since rooting and flashing.
