See the 3rd comment for list of compatible handsets (almost any BT handset)

Your seamless and wireless in-car connection to your compatible phone. Answer, end, mute or place calls wherever and whenever you wish. The Bluetooth link automatically activates when the ignition is on and can stay connected even while the ignition is off.

Imagine holding a conversation on your Bluetooth wireless phone while entering a car that has a Motorola Bluetooth car kit. Your phone conversation would automatically transition from the phone to the communication system within the car. You could toss the phone into your briefcase and seamlessly continue your conversation via the communication control panel installed within the car. When the conversation ends, you could choose to initiate another call by using voice dialing features.

With the car kit, a highly stylized "communications control panel" will be professionally installed into the dashboard. This panel, similar in function and appearance to a car radio, houses volume buttons to easily adjust and control volume.

About £30 delivered on fleabay (I guess there will be lots of them there soon!)

Does this work with any bluetooth phone - ie. Nokia E61i?

Amazon must have sold out and only the third party items left ... expired! :x

how can you tell?



You can tell by updating your basket with 999 of the product. When you click UPDATE button, it will tell you how many there are actually avaialble at that instant.

If you are then geeky enough to sit there clicking UPDATE, you will see the available number reduce as people complete the checkout process.

Whilst they may be in your basket, they are still available for everyone else to buy.

You can find full details of how to install it at the Motorola support webpage.

motorola.com/Hel…pdf

Something no covered in the manual, does anyone with one of these kits know if it can pair to two phones (mine and the missus)? And how it selects which phone is used if they are both in the car at the same time?

Great.. pls post feedback :thumbsup:

well, 5 months on, and no feedback? i just decided to open mine and to install it in my car tomorrow, however one thing that i found was that it doesn't state anywhere that this is compatible with the car speakers, and the supplied speakers seem... rubbish. im guessing thats why they were sold at such a cheap price. the model up, the hf1000, does use the in-car speakers, might see if i can find a deal on that and buy that instead.

i did install mine but forgot to put feedback. its a good piece of kit, the only let down as stated above is the use of its own speakers
However, as it mutes your stereo when you get a call, you can wire it up to your own speakers (simple crimp on) and the sound can come from your own speakers. Ive done that and it works a treat. requires a bit of playing around with the mic but it has worked. I have a spare one now which i might sell just to get rid.
Good piece of kit for the price.

Autoleads do a set of cables for most cars which allows full use of car speakers.

cant see them making one for this? it wouldnt make a lot of sense TBH.

Of course, it's a fairly generic system. Nokia systems are the norm however, so this needs the normal autoleads set for your car plus a converter for the standard 3.5 mm style jack to the 1x2 block connector on the HF850. Total cost? Approximately £35 for a complete kit which means you unplug your stereo plug, plug it into the autoleads set, plug the autoleads set into the back of your stereo and done.

That will give you muting and sound through speakers without any cables being cut etc. and will match a shop fitted system.

so, there would be a lead from the control box to a 3.5mm style jack..... the 2 block connector on the HF850 would lead to a headphone jack, then how would that fit in the with ISO connectors behind the stereo?

Is there an autoloeads ISO adapter which takes the 3.5mm style jack?

Would be interested if there was, can you shed any light please?

Really, it needs a diagram to explain. However, as said before, you can basically get an autoleads adapter for a general phone kit input (which has a relay control unit for switching the feed from your stereo to the speakers to the phone to your speakers). However, this is built for the Nokia standard connectors, which out of memory have a 3.5 mm jack for the output from the phone control box but need to be converted to the block connector used on the HF850 - this converter costs just a few pounds.

For a simple ISO installation, the item you are after is given here as an example:
incarexpress.co.uk/vie…50B

The motorola adapter I am not sure of the product code of, sorry.

Then it is just a matter of hiding everything and you have the equivalent of what the pros would do for anything from £100-300+. The sound will mute on a call coming through (or making a call) and the sound will go through the speakers. Search for items such as autoleads iso phone telemute etc.

no need for diagram, it all made perfect sense to me. you reckon autoleads to the adaptor for the HF850? (might be a case of ringing them in the morning).

The key bit i needed clarifying was: ".5 mm jack for the output from the phone control box but need to be converted to the block connector used on the HF850".

Thanks, rep added for that.
