Hey everyone:<p>I am trying to install a handsfree cell phone kit. I have included photos of the installation diagram for the kit as well as ignition and stereo wiring digrams that I got from the dealer. I would like to get some help and advice about were to splice the wires from the 4-pin connector from the cell phone kit on the installation diagram to the locations on the Volvo wiring diagrams. Any help would be greatly appreciated and as always thank you in advance.<p>Handfree Cell Phone Kit Installation Diagram<br><IMG SRC="http://www.stickypix.com/data/500/93cellport-med.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Volvo Ignition Wiring Diagram<br><IMG SRC="http://www.stickypix.com/data/500/93ignition_diagram-med.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Volvo Ignition Components<br><IMG SRC="http://www.stickypix.com/data/500/93ignition_components-med.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Volvo Stereo Wiring Digram - I am trying to figure out if my stereo has a Cell Phone Mute Lead, but I am getting confused by the diagram.

The center channel doesn't do much for the stereo.)<br><IMG SRC="http://www.stickypix.com/data/500/93stereo_diagram-med.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Volvo Stereo Components<br><IMG SRC="http://www.stickypix.com/data/500/93stereo_components-med.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Thank you all in advance.<p>If you need better photos.

Hey Larry,<br>The big scans look really good. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Is your hands free kit the Volvo kit? or another you are trying to integrate? Can the dealer supply wiring diagrams for the handsfree Volvo headrest? If you can get this wiring diagram maybe that would help...or did I miss it in your files?<p>A 2000 V70 R with handsfree kit:<br><IMG SRC="http://www.icstew.com/silver_v70R/images/000921-011_jpg.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://www.icstew.com/silver_v70R/images/000920-008_jpg.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

Re: Installing Handsfree Cell Phone Kit (83caddy16v)

He's trying to install the <A HREF="http://www.cellport.com" TARGET="_blank">CellPort hands free kit.</A>. Did you get the 3000 with voice? If you did, it doesn't work all that well unfortunately. I have it (in my Passat) and it sometimes picks up things from the radio or when I'm talking to a passenger and says something back (like, there is no phone in the pocket). I have used it with my StarTAC and it sometimes would not recognize that the phone is in the pocket. I can make calls out with the phone and have it come out of the speaker but when I try to do any voice dialing, it doesn't recognize it in the pocket.<p>Currently not using it as they have just produced a pocket for my V60i. I'll be getting that soon and hopefully it'll work better than the StarTAC pocket.<p>Mic position is a major key in the install. In my Passat, the mic did not work well in their optimum place (upper left hand corner of the windshield) nor in the OEM mic placement (next to the sunroof dial). Currently I have it mounted on the steering wheel housing and it's okay. Works well enough for me.<p>Ron

Re: Installing Handsfree Cell Phone Kit (B518T)

Hey 83Caddy16v:<p>Unfortuately it is not the Volvo kit. I looked into that, butit does not support my Nokia. Also kind of limited should (or when) I change phones. CellPort has many different adaptors (or pockets) that will work with different phones and are constanly developing new ones. It is the only installed kit that would work with my phone.<p>Ron:<p>I did not get the Voice Command. First of all my phone does not support voice command. Secondly, I don't think it will be a big deal to dial the phone with my hands. At least I won't have to hold the phone to my ear. I hope to install it this weekend. The final piece (a Kuda phonebase) will be here today. I hope it looks as good as the photo.<p>I will post pictures of the install.

Re: Installing Handsfree Cell Phone Kit (larryo108)

Hopefully you got the correct Kuda Phonebase. I ordered the one that goes next to the console on the passenger side but they sent me the one that clips into the center vents. That piece was nice looking but also seemed real cheap to clip in. There were just 2 metal tabs coming out that somehow hooked into the vents. Also depends on which material you got. I think I got the fake leather version which looked pretty decent.<p>Not sure where the Kuda mounts to your car but where I have my phone (passenger side of the console, not using the Kuda), it's a bit of a stretch to reach the buttons. It's a bit low so when you reach over there, you have to also look down. My StarTAC does not support voice commands either. The CellPort just activates the phone and dials using an electrical signal. So you don't need a voice activated phone.<p>Good luck with the install.<p>Ron

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>My StarTAC does not support voice commands either. The CellPort just activates the phone and dials using an electrical signal.

I haven't gone out to the car to compare it, but it looks pretty close. This one also has just two tabs. Which is fine with me... no drilling.<p>The console mounts on the passenger side of the console, down near the shifter. With the extension of the console, the Cellport base and the pocket adaptor, I think I will be fine. I am also 6'3" so I have long arms.<p>The CellPort pocket adaptor for my phone (Nokia 8260) does not support voice command, so it isn't the phone. Not a big deal to me.<p>I'll let you know how the install goes and provide pictures. The only missing link is that damn cell phone mute lead I have heard about.

I have an aftermarket headunit so it was clearly marked for me.<p>Ron

I would think they would have carried it over to the 98 model year. We'll see.<p>I just took the Kuda base out. Well it is for a 2nd generation V70. Won't work on mine. I have contacted the guy and he is going to call me when he gets in the office to sort it out. Hope to still be able to install it this weekend. I'll let you know. Thanks for the help.
