JATY Bluetooth Hands Free Kit

this is some kind of a weird post, as it's not really a professional material.
We recently got a JATY Bluetooth Hands Free Kit for the car, Model JBHW-0310C.
No Manual, It got lost in the installation.

We tried to pair it with my Nokia mobile phone, but failed to make it "publish" itself in pairing mode.
Even when calling Cellcom support, and got redirected to their Internet support (*320),
They just told as that it will enter pairing mode when pressing the + button for a few seconds,
Which did not work.
I decided to search for the manual on the net, but failed to find it,
even in the Korean company itself.

I finally managed to find a hard copy manual, which solved the problems
(Pairing mode is started by pressing "Send" + "End" for 3 seconds.)
I decided to scan it and upload it here so the mighty Google will bring it to the next person who needs it.

Some relevant data regarding pairing from the manual:

*What is Pairing?
- Pairing is the process of establishing device addresses
and connection parameters for the devices so that they
automatically connect when required.
Pairing need only be done once for each device.
- So, before you use Bluetooth Car Kit, you must link it to your phone.
Once the Car Kit and phone are paired, the Car Kit will automatically connect to your phone
every time you start your vehicle or power.

Pairing and Connect the phone.
Before you use Handsfree Kit, you must link it to your phone.

1) Please press send and end button together for 3 seconds to go to pairing mode and than,
the pairing mode keep 60 Seconds.
2) Start pairing with your phone (refer to your phones manual)
3) Password for the pairing is "0000"

Note: These instructions may differ from your phone but will be the same process
(1) Put the Handsfree kit into Pairing mode as in section above.
(2) In your phone's Menu find Bluetooth and turn On.
(3) Search for a New Paired device.
(4) Select JBHW-G508" and enter password 0000'.
(5) Next select options for "JBHW-G508" and select Connect (Required for some phones only)

Auto Connection
1) When you turn on the Car Kit. Car kit will search for the last 3 devices.
It takes 6 second for each devices.
2) If auto connection fail, there will be a short beep sound.
3) If there's no paired information stored, Handsfree Kit will go to the Paring Mode.
4) If you press End button for 4 second, you call disconnect the phone from the Handsfree Kit.
Note: Some phone needs authorize for the auto connection.

Deleting Paired Devices

If your kit will not connect or if you pair using the wrong mode,
try deleting all stored paired information and then Re-Pair your devices.

1) Press and hold Volume Up(+) and Volume down(-) button for 5 seconds.
Note: You can pair the JBHW-G508 With up to 8 different phones.
ie... The JBHW-G508 can stove connection information for 8 devices,
but can connect with only one phone at a time.

Back me up, Carbonite!

Hi all,

About 3 months ago I was privileged to hear David S Platt's "Why Software Sucks" show.
During the show (Which is both interesting & fun!) David gave an example of Backup software,
telling the story about how his hard drive crashed with no updated backup…
This brought me to wonder …
When did I last back up all my latest photos, documents and PST to a DVD?
I really couldn't remember, which told me it's probably not too good…
David demonstrated some screenshots from Carbonite,
An online backup software he seems to admire, after using it for quite a while.
When I got home, I Googled for Carbonite, and found out that for less than 50$/year I can backup
all my data with no limitations…
At first I was a bit skeptic about the idea…
My backup size is above 25GB… but I decided to give it a try.
They give you 2 weeks of free trial, which is quite enough to feel it…
After 2 weeks I managed to backup over 10GB of data in low bandwidth priority
over a 1.5Mb/128Kb line …
I decided to subscribe.

Now, 3 months after, I can say I am very happy!
All my documents, photos, mail & even my home videos are regularly backed up without
needing to do much, and I am now over 27GB!
I was impressed that during this time Carbonite never crashed or gave me trouble,
and even the Email support I got to use once for asking a question was prompt.

One thing I must say: If you have a large backup store like mine
(Most people don't in my opinion), bare a bit with the software until if finishes
the first upload… my suggestion is to let it run in full capacity during the night,
and in law priority when you are using the PC.
After the initial backup, only diffs are uploaded, even if the files are in use (like a PST)
which is not noticeable.
It's even better then a DVD, as the data is stored many miles away,
which is like a nice data DRP backup site

There are other similar solutions over the internet, in different levels,
Starting with Mozy, and even Amazon's S3, but this was the cheapest service
I could find for large backup stores (Over 2 GB) which is both friendly & simple.

If you want to give it a try, you can use this referral link.
If you get to purchase a subscription after the trial like I did, you will get an extra month bonus
period and me too J


Fighting Blog Spammers

Hi People !
Lately I have been getting a lot of spam in my blog from spammers posting ads
using the blog comments system or add trackbacks to it.
To fight this I have turned on dasBLog's captcha  system.
It means that when you add comments,
you will have to enter a string of chars copied from an image near the save button.

Hi friends,
I opened my Blog, having tons of ideas to write about,
But all you got was 2 months of silence.
I've been busy at work, going on some trips, scuba diving, and lots more.
(I will upload some new photos to my site album soon)
Hopefully I will have some more free time on the coming weeks to write ...
