Help S3 - S Voice & Parrot CK3100 Car Kit?

Hi,

I've just upgraded from my old Google Nexus One to the Galaxy S3. I used to have the N1 connected to my in-car Parrot CK3100 hands free kit, which has voice recognition. The phone recognition on the N1 was never very good, so I could change the setting on the CK3100 to use the voice recog on the car kit itself, and not to use the phone, which worked much better.

I have now connected the S3 to the CK3100, everything connected fine, phone book transfered without any issue. However, having tested the S Voice app, it still doesn't work very well, as it uses a network connection to recognise the voice, if there isn't a very good connection, most of the time it just errors with 'Network Error', so I'd still prefer to use the CK3100 voice recog.

I have gone into the CK3100 settings > voice recognition > and changed it from 'Phone' to 'Hands free kit', like on the N1, however, when I press the button on the CK3100 to active voice recog, it still activates the S Voice app, and the phone takes over! I have tried disconnection/reconnecting & de-pairing/re-pairing the phone to the CK3100, and changing the voice recog setting back to phone and then hands free kit again, but nothing helps, the S3 just insists on using the S voice app and overriding the Parrot!

Can anyone help? How can I force the phone to use Parrot Ck3100 voice recog?

Many thanks

Ben
