I find my Focus amazingly quiet at highway speeds, unless the winds outside are already howling....

geotron dear friends Hi!

im having the exact same mic issue as you Dysan and i wonder if you have found out a solution. i really like my car but these little things drive me crazy. i have updated bluetooth firmware but no fix. is it worth of spending more than 50 $ to buy a new mic and try if it fixes the problem or you can suggest me a different approach?

thank you in advance

Dysan911 Got the new mic installed. Made a test call sitting with the car off in the driveway. I don't think this is going to make one bit of difference. Playback sounded crappy compressed like it usually does. Im about 90+% sure on the road tomorrow it will be the same BS.
At least I know it wasn't as simple as a Mic.

Dysan911 Picked up the Mic from local Ford dealership today. Looks pretty much the same with a slight few differences. Mine had a black cloth like woven sleeve over the main wire. This one just has a piece of gray foam wrapped around it. There's some writting on the top of the Mic as well that I don't recall seeing on mine. It has an arrow that points one way and says. TO SPEAKER. Odd.

Anyhow, I can't wait to install it and test it. I'd do it now but would look pretty funny with my head sticking out of my sun roof (the easiest way to R&R it through the sunroof) at work while Co-workers are heading to their car wondering what in the hell I"m doing. LOL. YOu can't DRIVE LIKE THAT DUDE!.

When I get home tonight I'll install it and report back tomorrow on my drive into work if there's nary a difference.

Dysan911 Well the BB wasn't any better. AT ALL!. Its' a different carrier as well. So not likely phone related. Fingers crossed the new mic today will be a major improvement. Waiting for it to arrive.

Will do!. I also have a Blackberry bold from work that I'm going to pair and test with on the way home tonight as well.

Likewise. My wind tunnel disappeared after 3.5.1. I never had it w/2.11 and it didn't start until 3.0.2 was installed. Still not perfect but much better than 3.0.2 though calls from my car hands-free to my wife's VW when she is hands-free on her end also are still rough.

I"ll let ya know.
