I agree very much with your comments. One thing that has come out so far is that there are two people who are satisfie with the performance of their HFT. Unfortunately, neither has (yet) give any details. It would be really helpful if they would do this. Nevertheless, the proportion is still heavily on the side of those with problems.
As you suggest, getting details would be very helpful. Any other information could go in the decription bit..
Anyway, to start the ball rolling:
1. April 2006
2. Nokia N70
4. Everything works exactly as described except that I get complaints from the people I talk to on the phone that I am faint, or distant and barely audible. This is despite the fact that I have increased the microphone gain, and shout directly at the microphone. This works for very short conversations only, anything longer is impossible.
5. Phone is worst. Voice control is very poor at speed, and is less than perfect at any speed.
6. Worse with speed, presumably because of the increased ambient noise, but not drastically so.
7. I haven't noticed, but also I guess, worse because of the ambient noise.
8. If it is likely to be more than a very short call, I have to stop the car and call back using the handset. HFT is unusable at any speed.
Finally, if this problem is not resolved in a relatively short time, I think that I will bill my dealer for installing a working bluetooth HFT system of comparable quality. Also, for the cost of travel to/from dealer, cost of letters etc. (I believe £20 per letter is perfectly acceptable in a Small Claims Court. Much as I don't want to do it (I'd much rather have a working system), it would put a little more feeling into the dealer's contact with Honda on the issue. They are not exactly pushing themselves as far as I can see, and faced with something they can't win ther is some incentive.
A few of these should also encourage Honda no end.
