DIY - Easy Handsfree Fix

I did my own fix today for the Hand Free Kit, 100% perfect operation and greatly improved voice recognition. Very Happy!

It's simple if you don't want to wait for the garage to do it, and it can be removed in an instant.

Just get some Bluetac and make a thin roll of it. About 3-4mm dia.
Then apply the roll all around the edge of the microphone making sure you don't cover the holes that are under the foam (yes the holes are where the holes have been cut in the Honda fix).

This seems to join the microphone to the cover and create a much better channel for the sound from the grill to the microphone.

When dialling numbers by voice control it never gets it wrong, even if you say 'Oh' instead of Zero.

Give it a try.

Mine's booked in to get the 'official' fix, but this must be worth a punt
