Has anyone installed a hands free car kit for the Nokia 6310i? I have just installed it and when I put the phone into the cradle a small icon of a car is displayed. However the phone doesn't seem to acknowledge that it is in a car by muting the radio etc. I cannot find any settings in the menu for car settings. Am I missing something?
As far as I'm aware there isn't a setting for this. When we have our company car kit installed I have to make sure I ask for the radio mute to be connected. It¡¯s not available on all makes and models of car. I know that if your car is a Toyota it properly won¡¯t be able to mute at all.
I'm not a sure on the tec¡¯y side of things. I know it¡¯s possible with either a mid or premium install. It sounds like you have installed this yourself. I have never installed a kit. My understanding of it all was that most radios have a port on the back that allows devises to plug in. I know that there is no programming of the phone involved, as I don¡¯t give it to the engineers.
I have a bluetooth handsfree car kit for my 6310i. Catherine is correct - most car stereos have a mute connection which you connect to your car kit. The stereo mutes ok when someone calls my 6310i. In my car, the mute lead is a little blue wire connected between the car kit and stereo (if that helps!)
