    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review

    If you could order it online at www.galaxy1000.com that is the best way for us to process it. If you do prefer to order by phone I can do that from that number. I am travelling today ( Coming back from the National Auto Delaers convention) but will be available late afternoon and tomorrow morning.

    Update....

    Received a call from Fred at 5:30, I entered my address wrong. The unit will be shipped out today.
    I opted for the 2-day mail, so I hope to have it Thursday, I'll have another update then...

    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review


    I received the unit in the mail today. I had already scoped out the location inside the glovebox so I knew what I needed to do. Just as advertised, the install took less than two minutes. I immediately turned on the car, paired up with my iphone and made a call. The unit works as advertised, I was able to dial using my voice as well as other phone features. You answer the phone with the button on the miror. My only issue is that there is very little room behind the glovebox to fit the unit. Once you figure out where it fits it's easy but at first I was worried it would not.
    If anyone has any concerns or questions feel free to send me a message and I'll answer what I can.

    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review

    There has been some discussion on other threads about the pricing.

    For those that can't justify the pricing I am truly sorry we can't help you, there is very little markup (although I realize that is my issue and not yours) in the unit. Sure, we could probably use cheaper parts and have the units built in China and be able to charge less, but that would in my opinion lead to quality issues.

    Sorry for the delay in answering, I've been down with the flu. You would need to access the mirror buttons to answer calls, and to pair your phone. Some phones will work so that you can answer with the phone and it will switch over to the Galaxy, but this is the exception not the rule if you know what I mean. We will be launching an updated version that will allow for the use of the steering wheel controls soon for the talk functions.

    Thanks for your interest, please do not hesitate to call me at 781-523-1900 with any questions,

    Fred

    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review

    I just wanted to touch base and thank all of you that did get the broken link on my page for emailing me. It appears there was a piece of code out of place. We are in the middle of changing the order basket so that our customers from Canada may order online. Right now they will get an error message and will need to email me for a PayPal link.

    Thank you all for your business, we appreciate it!!!

    Order today at www.galaxy1000.com

    Do you have to manually "connect" your telephone to the bluetooth device, or does it automatically connect when you get in the vehicle and disconnect when you get out of the vehicle?

    It will automatically pair with your phone when you start your vehicle and when you shut it off and open the door it will automatically disconnect.

    Sorry for the delay in answering, I appreciate your interest.

    Thanks again,

    Fred

    GREAT NEWS

    For all of you that have purchased the Galaxy 1000, you know that there is an extra spot for a small plug on the unit itself. This plug is for people that would like switched power for an accessory. We will have these harnesses available for purchase by the end of next week. Cost has not been finalized but should be under $25.00.

    I'll post more details as I have them,

    Fred

    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review

    If people are that interested in audio streaming my engineer says it's not a big deal. But he does caution that the bluetooth link is mono and it would sound really crappy.

    Let me know,

    Fred

    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review

    So just that I am 100% you lose ALL functionality of Onstar correct? Meaning that if airbags deployed or anything like there would no longer be an automatic alert sent to onstar and also you would no longer be able to hit the emergency button and connect with an onstar rep?? Or do you just lose the phone option to make adn recieve calls? Also not that it makes a whole difference being that car thieves are pretty smart these days but by doing this mod do you lose the ability to have onstar track the vehicle?

    You lose EVERYTHING OnStar... You completely remove the OnStar brain and connect this piece.

    I think that will probably be the deal breaker.. Given I don't take my car that far on trips and whatnot I still like the comfort of knowing that someone is always a push of a button away.. I know these days everyone has a cellphone and its rare (for my area) that you would ever be somewhere that there is no one around but still.. the comfort of knowing that if i crash and cant find the phone or if someone is trying to jack the car with myself or a family member inside that all they have to do is smack that button and someone will be there and be able to send help.. I am a cop and while i have the safety of being able to carry a gun not everyone has that comfort of having some piece of mind.. We just had an incident recently where a husband and wife were fighting and he was threatening her and when he wasnt looking she hit the emergency button and it connected to onstar and the rep heard him screaming and immediately notified police of the matter with the location of the car.. Turned out to be nothing more than an argument but imagine if the person wasnt her husband.. idk.. I know im rambling now.. The idea and concept is great.. Just wish that it would keep the emergency button or possibly make it where there is a switch available so that if you have it flipped one way all regular onstar functions are available and if flipped the other it disengages onstar for phone use.. just an idea..
