What will activate the "Car" profile, contrary to the "Headset" ?

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

...I am searching for clues how I can get my O2 XDA phone into the "Car" profile. Just using the headphone connector (with a 3pin headphone or a 4pin headset doesn't matter) will put the device in the headset mode. This is due to a dedicated switch inside the device. I suppose that as well a connected Carkit has to make use of this connector, but there must be some additional trigger to put in to "car" mode.

I have searched several forums and MSDN but I have not found a clue how this is achieved.

As well the obvious combination of headset connection and charging the device (via USB or AC Adapter) did not bring up the "car" profile. So somewhere there must be an additional trigger that puts the device in "car" mode.

Anyone to help me with a hint?

thanks + bye

Well , what mysterious signal might that be? I know that USB only requires 4 pins (2xsignal, ground and +5V), but the plug offers 5 of them. As I do not believe that real USB logic will be implemented in the CarKits, it most probably is something simple, e.g. connect the extra pin to ground or +5V or any of the two USB signals. I have found someting for Motorola USB here: http://pinouts.ru/CellularPhones-A-N/razrv...er_pinout.shtml but for HTC I could not find anything similar.

An additional Problem seems to be finding a plug or cable that will offer you all the 5 Pins at your disposal.
