Can you flash the Parrot with latest firmware? My 6000 did the same until I zapped it. Currently running firmware 1.03a which is essentially like yours but without the display.

1.03a sounds familiar but I will have a look tomorrow to see what firmware is installed

Thanks for the suggestion

Do you have the same problem with the IO that some of us have with the Parrot? i.e. the files continue to play via the internal speaker when a call comes in?

No. Using the car radio or the Tomtom music player all sound is muted during phone calls and reinstated after.

Have now updated the Parrot firmware from 1.03 to 1.03a and my TT520 now sees it as a Hifi device and plays the TT audio.

It does not seem to connect automatically though, I have to manually pair it each time using the Parrot's menu (Settings/Paired Devices/Connect).

I don't have my 520 set up to allow hands free with my N95 as I usually connect my phone direct to the Parrot. This obviously is not possible now as you can only have one device connected at a time. When I jump in the car I always have my phone but not my TT so will leave my N95 to connect to the Parrot.

Thanks for the heads-up Jimbo, much appreciated.

If you want to stream audio and get navigation commands from the TT through the parrot but ony want the phone to do calls you might be able to disable those fuctions on the phone.

On the Blackberry if I go into the blootooth options, select properties on the Parrot pairing and deselect A/V RC TARGET and A/V RC CONTROL then it just acts as a phone with the handsfree functionality. This frees these up and lets me use the TT for streaming audio functions instead.

That said, if the controls on the Parrot with Nokia let you skip tracks and it mutes/pauses the audio on a call etc then you might be better off using the phone for music as this is the very functionality I'm trying to get out of the TT 720 but with no joy.

I have all my music on the phone as it does support full AVRCP and A2DP and if I encode it as mpeg4 (m4a) the file sizes are relatively small while still maintaining full ID3 tag support and decent quality.

I copy podcasts daily onto my TT and usually have them playing through the FM transmitter (usually with attrocious quality), the vehicle I use during the day not having any bluetooth or line-in capabilities.

I am sure there is no way of disabling individual services associated with a BT connection on the phone

Thanks Rick.

FYI I also have the FM transmitter and yes it is pants. However, I also have a 3rd party one I bought for pence form some i-pod online thing and it is WAY better when plugged into the earphone socket. I use it in my motorhome. Haven't got it here so can't be any more specific.
