    hi,

    I just put in a CARK-112 to pair up with my SE T610. It works great, except
    for a bad echo problem on the other party's phone - they hear themselves
    pretty loudly. Is this normal? Or is it a nokia-SE problem?


    thanks

    Re: Nokia Bluetooth car handsfree + Ericsson phone = echos

    It's having the speaker too close to the microphone, or the speaker turned
    up too loud. Happens to mine when the speaker volume is turned up loud and
    there's no road noise.

    Solution: move speaker or lower volume.

    Common problem with car kits, , you mic is in too close a range of your
    speaker, , when the other guy speaks,, ,his voice comes out of your speaker
    too loud and your mic picks it up and he hears himself again

    hide the speaker on the passenger side, , or turn down the volume a bit

    aim the mic towards the window ( assuming it is high up on the "a" pillar )

    I have seen this about 100 times, , , , , this is a common problem

    Doesn't quality car kits have echo cancelling facilities?

    That's what I thought... that echo cancelling was standard on good
    car kits.

    Maybe it only echo-cancels with Nokia phones...

    Yeah... but I was really expecting an echo cancelling feature to be
    built-in.

    I mounted the mic above the rearview mirror with the speaker near my
    foot. I was thinking, regardless of where i put it, if I can hear the
    speaker, wouldn't the mic be able to pick it up?

    I could try mounting the speaker on the passenger side and the mic at
    the top of the a-pillar on the driver side, but I'd rather get some
    confirmation that it makes a difference (maybe it's just a bad car kit)
    before ripping everything out.


    It happens at minimum volume too.

    Right now the speaker is mounted near the driver's foot, and the mic is
    above the rearview mirror. Will mounting the speaker on the passenger side
    and the mic at the top of the driver-side a-pillar make a difference?

    I was thinking, maybe the echo cancel feature only works with Nokia phones,
    or something silly like that.

    Eug,

    I did a quick Google search for "CARK-112" and came up with some info from
    an US online forum which may be of help to you:

    http://www.howardforums.com/archive/topic/121453-1.html

    Extract Below:


    "..... however, when I installed it all my test calls produced a terrible
    echo on the other end.

    I was about to take it out when I started to read thru the manual (funny
    solution, huh)...and then saw where there is an ability to reset the car
    kit. I followed the instructions, reset the kit, and voila....NO MORE
    ECHO....

    So, I would reccomend that you get out the manual. Read the trouble shooting
    portion, and reset the kit and retry it then."

    Regards,
    D.

    Interesting, then what's that sitting in my car at the moment?

    Most places should have it for under $400 now as well.
