    So I have a AUX and iPod connector in my car, but no mic.
    I want to be able to hook up my iPhone to the car stereo as a handsfree calling system.

    What I have tried in the past is hooking up a mic between the phone and the aux connector. It worked, but not very well. I always got people complaining about there being too much echo that it was unbearable. I guess the MIC i added inbetween was a cheap single mic which picked up the sound coming from the car speakers.

    Anyone tried anything similar that actually worked well??
    I'm open to trying creative things.



    Thanks in advance for all the creative input!

    Why don't you just use a bluetooth headset. My Car lets me plug the iPod in through the dock for music and then I just synced the phone with the car bluetooth for calls. Works great

    I have a car bluetooth. I have a Jawbone 2. But i hate using it. Never stays in my ear. I've tried all the different sizes and what not.
    I prefer the bluetooth speakerphone even over bluetooth headsets.

    I'm pretty sure this is what you're looking for:

    They also make a version with just the cable and no charging dock:

    The mic i currently have (that doesn't work too well) is also Griffin, but that one was cheap. The ones you are pointing out seem to be new. I'm hoping they are better quality too, cause they are pretty much exactly what I'm looking for! If they have decent noise reduction and noise cancelling, they will be perfect!

    Thanks for this!!
