Rostra ConVerse Bluetooth Microphone Location
So I've always missed not having Bluetooth in my '06 Ridge RTL with Navi and finally got around doing something about it.
I ordered the HN5 (yes I know the ConVerse will not mute the subwoofer). Tonight I pulled the dash panel and radio/nav unit and hooked everything up. Before installing the switch I put the headunit back in the dash, linked my phone and made some test calls.
I'm pleased with the clarity, volume and the people I was talking to said they could hear me fine so I'm going to keep it.
Two questions for folks that have already installed a ConVerse
1) Where did you put the microphone? I was thinking on top of the steering column or maybe at the top of the drivers side a-pillar trim. Not sure what will work best and if I go up the a-pillar I need to watch out for the airbag and make sure I have enough cord length. Where is your mic and is the location ideal?
2) I also bought the Honda specific switch and plan to use that instead of the generic switch. The blank between the heated seats looks too big. I don't know if the blanks on the left side of the column will work either. Did anyone purchase the switch? Does it fit. I'll find out when I pull the bottom dash pieces off but curious if anyone has been there done that. Worst case I use the generic switch (don't like the chrome on it) and send the other switch back.
Please advise! Thanks.
