  1. guys there are 2 kinds of downloads in the xda forums...which one did you use? buddy of mine tried it and his unit froze up...thus needing a hard reset. any chance of you describing what you did exactly? my understanding was that the mio's rom does not support aku2...which from reading the xda forum topic needs to be present in order to implement a2dp. cheers
  2. anyone tried using / assigning specific ringtones to specific contacts? when you open a contact one of the options is to assign a tone; my question is does this feature work well on your mios? i pasted some wav files on the rings folder but somehow some of the shorter tones don't work. the phone just rings without any sounds. but using mp3s; that seems to work better specially for the tones which come with the mio. i tried using mortring 0.97 version where you can assign ringtones and sms tones to specific contacts; but i think the app doesn't go well with wm2005...read that some users of other ppc devices (like an o2 atom) had some issues as well. i then tried ringo but it still doesn't work well with wav files. cheers rob
  3. i've read a lot of threads regarding the speed dial function not working properly for the a701...myself included. heck even the manual shows that you can only go as far as sending an sms to the speed dial entry. what i've done is changed the dial pad for the phone...although the one for the mio is adequate i'm not too crazy about the design either. so; i went over to buzz.net to download some better looking skins; i currently use steel orange (grey interface)...although the speed dial cannot show pictures the good thing is that now speed dial works. another alternative is the attached cab file; it's a today plug in which allows you to put a small photo on your today screen and use this for speed dial. for more details please refer to this: http://pdaphonehome.com/forums/showthread.php?t=70677 when you install, you can go to your today settings and click on the "speed dial" item. from there click on options. you can create a new speed dial entry: 1) click "new" 2) click "link to contact" (from here the contacts will now appear) 3) click on the contact you want, make sure that he/she has a photo assigned already 4) click on "picture speed dial" (note, if you click on text speed dial the shortcut which will appear on your today screen is a rectangular box with the contact's name) 5) click "ok" if you'll notice your today screen, you will have 5 photo contacts/speed dial entries present. take note that this is NOT restricted to having more than 5...as you click on "new" and add more speed dial contacts you'll notice that on the today screen there will be a small directional button beside the rightmost photo contact. clicking on this will simply show the next photo contacts you assigned. in this case you're only limited to seeing 5 photo speed dials on your today screen at one time...but you can view the others when you click on the directional button. btw, clicking on the photo speed dial will not bring up the phone app/dial pad. you can end a call by pressing on the red "hang up" or power button of the mio. bluetooth works too; i find the app helpful specially when i'm driving. cheers rob Plugin.zip

  5. mapking 3d for me; works great. was wondering where i can download/buy miomap for the a701. cheers rob
  6. hi new to this forum as i just got my mio a701 last week. fantastic device! anyway, i was curious about your post. you're saying that you can listen to audio from the media player via bt headset? i use an itech clip s; it supports a2dp but i do believe the mio doesn't...not yet anyway as i've heard a new rom will be released supporting a2dp and push email. appreciate your feedback on this. if you could get audio to work (other than the phone) then that'll be swell. i use an infinxx bluetooth adaptor paired with my itech in order to listen to music wirelessly. cheers rob
