    I have tried it with my Jawbone 2 and it works. The Voice Command is a little glitchy. I don't always hear the microphone tone to speak my command. This is better than nothing. I just hope that Palm fixes the volume problem that everyone is complaining about. It defeats the purpose of hands-free if you have to touch the Treo everytime a call comes in just to raise the volume to an acceptable level. Hopefully they will fix it soon.

    It does work for the t505 for me.

    You hold the very back button for a couple of seconds.

    Like I said before, this is just plain awesome!

    edit:
    If you want to install this.. here is a "mini guide" that I gave to tbaker.. so this might help others.

    Take that file that hannip linked and download it.
    Unzip it and take the toggle.exe one and place it into your windows/start menu/programs folder. Either via the computer or with (i think) a copy paste into the windows programs folder.

    if you transfer it over by computer, you will need to make sure hidden folders are enabled... So you can see the windows folder. (tools--> folder options--> view--> show hidden files and folders.

    Does anyone has solutions to these problems:

    1. Volume is too low
    2. Can't cancel out if you say the wrong thing without starting over
    3. Can't get my text messages to read

    I did find this nift little registry tweak while searching for the answer to problem #1:

    Change the speed of the voice in Microsoft Voice Command:

    1. Start up your Registry Editor program.

    2. Find the following: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Speech\Voices

    3. Change the DefaultTTSRate string/value: 4 (default)

    4. Increasing the number will increase the speed of the voice, while decreasing the number will slow it.

    I changed mine to 6 and it is perfect!

    Odd.
    Anyone else notice this? Happened a few times to me since the install. No big deal but this was not happening before. You cant even launch apps.

    Ok, pardon the dumb question, but let me just confirm before I start installing yet more new stuff! This update from palm will let me do voice commands over a BT headset, tell it to call a contact, etc., yes? No need to have the phone in hand or in site, as long as it's within BT range?

    Hannip's BTAudio: I'm a little less clear on what this is, but it seems like it will let me use a handsfree BT headset (like a Jawbone or whatever that's just goes on one ear) to receive an audio stream in the same way that a stereo BT headset like my Motorola S9 can, but just not in stereo, of course, yes? I've been looking for that kind of functionality for a long time! While I like my S9, even their relatively small footprint is still much more noticable than a mono BT headset. Since much of what I listen to is spoken word anyway, having it only be in one ear will not be a big deal at all. My only concern would be about the battery. The S9's is rated for 6 hours of usage, but I've never actually tested it, it might turn out to be even less, who knows. But are the small batteries in today's mono BT headsets able to play audio for that long without their battery going dead well before?

    Yes, I can do those things on my phone with a bluetooth headset after the update. Though I can't say a number that is not on my contacts and have it dialed.

    Are you using the correct commands?

    "call contact name"

    "dial (123) 456-7890"

    Thank you, with my previous phone I would say "Call (number)" or "Call (contact)." It works as you say.

    No problem. In this thread you'll find a link to the Voice Command User Guide.

    Try saying, "NO".

    3. Can't get my text messages to read
    This doesn't work with Palm Sms app, but does work with the native Sms. I've tried it both ways.

    Funny. My old cheapo Anycom HS-890 headset works great with the new Voice Dialing. Not only that but....

    The BTAudio tools now work!!!

    You can toggle on/off pda audio through your standard bt headsets! Audio is low however just like the call volume. Might be able to adjust the attenuation level for the pda sounds. hmm.
    Here's another btaudio freeware (this one from Triangle Powers) to try. Used it on my Mogul, haven't tried it yet with my 800w.

    http://www.trianglepowers.com/PPC/ViewApp.aspx?ID=52

    UPDATE: Just tried quickly. Works fine. I prefer it since it is installed by .cab, and no need to create shortcuts, etc. Triangle Powers seems to shut it's doors periodically, so might want to grab it now while you can if you're interested.

    Looks like a decent app. Too bad you have to login to download it.

    Yeah. Perhaps it's hosted on another freeware site?

    I grabbed an app called BTMusic from 1800pocketpc.com and it works like a charm.

    EDIT: I lied. Looks like this app installs something other than what it was supposed to install. Some VJ cab that toggles things. Lame.
