Re: BlackBerry® Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 Review

I'm nor sure what the problem could be then. I haven't heard of it happening with other people. If you try another radio streaming app (Slacker or Flycast) does the same thing happen?

Re: BlackBerry® Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 Review

On my way home today, I tried Viigo and listened to a pod cast. Again the same problem happened.I even changed the fm station several times.

 

What are your bluetooth settings? I am also on BES. Does that matter?

Re: BlackBerry® Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 Review

I'm on a BES, but the only policy I have is a password requirement. I know there are bluetooth policies that can be enforced by the BES admin.

 

Here are some of them in this document if you're interested. Also here is a KB article about it

http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB04011

 

If I go into my Bluetooth options for the VM-605 my settings are:

Trusted: Yes

Encryption: Enabled

Echo Control: Automatic

 

Device Address: lists the Mac address of the visor

 

Services:

Hands-Free Unit

Headset

A/V Remote Control

Audio Sink

Re: BlackBerry® Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 Review

So a week of trying, I still can not get Pandora or Viigo Podcast to stay on the fm channel for more than 1 minute.

 

I checked IT Policy settings on BES today and like you jmrmb80, it is only set to require a password. We are also on BES 4.1.

 

My bluetooh options are set to the same you have.

 

 

So I am more than confused why this is not working. I am going to try it with a friend's storm that is not on BES and see if it is the unit itself. Thanks again for the help. If you think of anything else, please let me know as it is appreciated.

Re: BlackBerry® Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 Review

Have you tried using the FM in another car to see if it works? That's a good idea to try another device also.

Re: BlackBerry® Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 Review

[ Edited ]

After trying a friend's device which is not on BES, the results are still the same.

 

I do feel like an noob though as I have been referring to Padora as Nobex Radio Campaign. For all the times I was mentioning Pandora, I really meant Nobex. I thought they were the same until I installed it on a friends phone. 

 

I also tried Viigo's pod cast and still the same result as before (on the non BES phone), the FM channel cuts out after 1 minute. 

 

So at least I know it is not a BES thing. Unfortunately I can not try Slacker or Pandora as they do not work in Canada. But I thought I would try another Podcast application such as stictcher and everything appears to be working. So with that said, it does not appear to be BES, my Storm (.122) or the visor device itself. 

 

The problem must relay in both Viigo and Nobex radio (there could be more, only time will tell). Even though Nobex has an option to play through Bluetooth, maybe it is a different signal that what is required by the VM-605 device in order to play as an FM channel. 

 

Has anyone else tried these 2 programs before?

Re: BlackBerry® Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 Review

Sorry, never used either of those 2 programs. At least you're narrowed down to where the problem is.

Re: BlackBerry® Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 Review

I don't have Nobex installed on my phone, but I do have Viigo.  I'll give it a shot next time I'm in the car and will let you know.

 

(Like you, I'm also in Canada, too bad we don't get Pandora - seems like it'd be really cool!)

Re: BlackBerry® Visor Mount Speakerphone VM-605 Review

I just received the vm-605 and it works great.  Is there a way to get it to announce the incoming callers name attached to the phone number as opposed to just the phone number?  I have a curve 8330.
