the headunit i have is the Alpine CDE-103BT running the 320 firmware.
Problem i have is it sometimes connects to the phone, sometimes doesn't. I'll go to take a call & i can hear it coming through the phone when it should be coming through the speakers, and then the next day it'll be working fine, without anything done different
I figure a firmware update to 360.
I just can't get the laptop to connect when it's needed.
Laptop in question is: http://www.acerdirect.co.uk/Acer_Ext...87/version.asp which if i believe right, possibly doesn't have bluetooth hardware installed, even though it has a bluetooth slider on the front
not to worry .... i bought a bluetooth USB stick thing off of eBay last year.
(it came with no installation CD btw)
Using bluesoliel version 5 (as it downloads quicker than version 6 and it's being awkwardly slow)
I stick the USB stick in, and pair it with the headunit, so it must surely be working SOMEWHAT
Follow the instructions in the pdf http://www.alpine-electronics.co.uk/...te_1_00_EN.pdf
When i get to step 9 (page 6) it says no bluetooth devide detected & wont let me update
Yet there has to be a bluetooth device or how else would i be able to pair FFS!!
EDIT: Reason i posted it in the chit chat forum was because the actual issue is a bluetooth connectivity issue or possibly even a PC/usb hardware device issue & not so much the headunit being "the" problem. That's why i never put it in I.C.E.
