    Re: OnStar -> Bluetooth Conversion Completed!!!

    I was very excited with this kit, until I discovered that the Motorola HF850 doesn't seem to support A2DP (for playing music with good quality from the phone to the car's speakers). Is it possible to get the kit working with a different bluetooth unit and if not, is such a thing planned? Thanks a lot.

    I think if Rusty Did this, he'd have to some how program his board to .. imitate the cd changer. The only way I see this working is if he makes his board pretend to be the cd changer, hook up to the cd changer port on the E&C bus and let the Left and Right audio pass through to the headunit. You would still have to find another source for the telephone audio to go though *either the onstar interface or the telephone interface on the bose amp*.

    Re: OnStar -> Bluetooth Conversion Completed!!!

    I see what you mean.
    I guess I could always add yet another bluetooth unit (like the Scosche BlueLife; I installed one of those in another car) hooked to the same place where you guys connect the iPod kit... I'm wondering how good my phone would handle having the "headset" functionality routed to one device while having the "headphones/a2dp" routed to another, though.

    Well, I guess I'll have to find out Unless someone has a better idea... ?

    Actually the device should be able to handle that just fine.

    You know, I haven't tried it, but I think the BlueSTAR might work with the Motorola IHF1000 unit. That has A2DP, and alot of other features as well. It is however, a more expensive solution.

    Re: OnStar -> Bluetooth Conversion Completed!!!

    Would the BlueSTAR (are talking about the BlueSTAR PnP?) automatically mute the radio/changer when the IHF1000 plays music streamed from a2dp?

    Edit: hmm, after reading some specs and review, I'm not so sure that the IHF1000 supports a2dp... are you 100% positive it does?

    I think your right about the IHF1000, but the T605 definitely supports it. I just got one for testing so I'm working on the interface for that now. It's relatively cheap and more available than the HF850.

    It also supports streaming bluetooth audio, as well as hardwired audio in. (Bluetooth takes priority).

    In audio streaming mode, you want to go into the aux inputs of the radio (if available) and switch it that way since the onstar interface (and therefore blueSTAR interface) is only a mono connection.

    Agreed on all you said

    So uh... where can I order a kit made for the T605? He he he. Seriously tough, please keep us updated on the progress and any guesstimated ETA you might have. Looking forward to buy a kit! Thanks.

    can the t605 pair with apple's iphone? I too would like to wait for the T605 if it can pair with the iphone. By the way, thanks for all you have done. I've been looking for a solution for a while and just found your forum.

    Re: OnStar -> Bluetooth Conversion Completed!!!

    Just some feedback on my BlueStar PNP install.
    Received the unit in less than one week.
    Mounted with double stick tape where onstar was.
    Paired to phone fairly easily.
    Quality of calls is exceptional.

    Re: OnStar -> Bluetooth Conversion Completed!!!

    I have a question for those people who have installed the BlueStar: The BlueStar comes with (optional) harness to plugin to GM connector - which for my 01 STS is behind the back seat. But how about connection to the HF850?

    1. Does the BlueStar come with connectors to connect directly to the HF850? (and how long are the cables)
    2. Do I need to supply power to the HF850 by splicing into nearby power - or does the BlueStar feed it power?
    3. Does the BlueStar repond to RAP requests to power on/off and does it power down the HF850 too? (assuming it supplies power to HF850)

    I can help you out here.
    1. The BlueSTAR has connector pins on it which plug directly into the HF850 junction box. There are no wires or harnesses required.
    2. All connectivity to the BlueSTAR and HF850 is through the harness connector. (GM Lever Lock) No need to splice or run anything.
    3. The BlueSTAR monitors class2 data traffic and when it sees that the car has "shutdown" for two minutes, it powers down the accessory voltage to the HF850. It will then wake up when it sees class2 data activity.

    Here's a picture of the BlueSTAR / HF850 connection.
