    I am also interested in an update on the steering wheel controls. That is the ONLY thing holding me back from buying this!

    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review

    If you read this thread from start to finish it's pretty evident that they are not going to be releasing an update enabling the steering wheel controls. At least not for '06 and older models. Especially since Galaxy hasn't responded in months. I've been following this thread since the first posting, waiting for an answer. That's a shame b/c I'm sure many others have been doing the same...

    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review

    I hear you!!!!

    We have been inundated with requests for a unit that is compatible with the newer units, our engineer has been testing that unit. We are hopefully near completion.

    We have begun working on expanding the current unit, we take our quality control very seriously and will not update the software until it has been tested across the board. I am truly sorry if the delay is troublesome, we fully intend to have this resolved soon but god forbid we couldn't I make the promise in this fashion; If/when we come out with the update it will be made available as a no charge update to every customer that owns our product.

    Believe me when I say we are trying to get this done as quick as possible.

    If anyone has any further questions I can be reached at 781-523-1900

    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review

    I just received an email and wanted to update the board. We have run into alot of difficulty in making the steering wheel controls work. I am not an engineer but will try to explain it as best I can; The steering wheel button for the phone option has multiple uses (mute/Onstar), the voltage signals that are used to create the commands differs, the voltage signals on the mirror buttons are consistant. At this point I am not sure we will ever be able to have proper functionality. What appears so simple really isn't.

    Just a quick update for the newer vehicles.


    We are still working on our next generation product for the newer systems, it has proven to be a challenge! We just WILL NOT release a product that does not work properly.

    For those that can use our original product you can get one today at http://www.galaxy1000.com

    If I order a Galaxy 2000 today off of the website, will it have the ability to stream music or is that still in the works? I don't care if it is mono (most of my audio files are books anyway).

    More than likely not, a few phones (older windows mobile os) will stream appointments and anything else that will go to a bluetoth headset.

    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review

    i have a 2002 cadillac dts with nav and onstar.

    fred please answer these....

    will the galaxy 1000 use all three mirror buttons (onstar, phone & emergency button) like its competitor? will it also use the green/ red led light like its competitor aswell?

    I know that its competitor uses the "onstar" button and light are multifunctional, like the light switching from red to green/ blinking to non blinking to indicate different status'.

    the competitor can also control these through the mirror buttons-
    -call muting
    -call waiting
    -redial
    -call rejecting
    -answer call
    -end call
    -transfer call to phone
    -place call on hold
    -3 way calling and toggle
    - etc...

    if it does this as well...then the galaxy sounds great.

    Re: Bluetooth Solution- Galaxy 1000 Review

    r u serious?

    i didnt want to mention its name but its the Bluestar by Costar technologies. it was out before the Galaxy 1000.

    theres a huge thread on here about it.

    but anyway.....if it can do the same as the "competitor" then the galaxy 1000 will be better bc of the tecj support and the price.

    please advise.

    We do most of the functions listed above. We can't place a call on hold, provide 3 way calling, or toggle a call. Please see this link for a chart that shows the button functions. http://www.galaxy1000.com/big_graph.php it is also available at www.galaxy1000.com and clicking on the installation guide tab then scrolling down.
