Have just tried my HTC/Telecom Apache with a new set of Jabra BT8010 stereo headset/phone.  I was convinced the Apache supported A2DP but have now found (searching through the forums!) that it doesn't - even AKU2.2.  Very shamefaced, I am Embarassed.  Loved the new approach combining stereo and/or mono from Jabra in the 8010, and they seem to generally receive good reviews from overseas - but no stereo music through the headset (worked for couple of seconds but then tried to activate "voice dial" on the Apache for some reason, at which stage the stereo music stopped!).  Now I know the reason (refer above!).

So - next question is, does the Titan support A2DP and AVRCP in its Telecom guise/implementation?  Can't find any tech specs on Telecom or HTC site.  Search on net shows the Sprint version appears to, but can I be sure the same applies to the NZ version?  Any help much appreciated.  Cheers, Tony.

Thanks for the prompt reply (other) Tony.  Is there any reason why the Titan might not work well with the BT8010's (I haven't used bluetooth much before apart from file transfers etc)?  Or is it a matter of simply waiting until I have the Titan and physically trying them out? 

Does the Titan support AVRCP?  My limited understanding is that this would be required for the controls on the headset to control the audio player on the Titan - is this right?  Cheers, Tony. Smile

Just when you have the time Tony.  Obviously no great rush as I haven't got the Titan yet!  Although this will add a bit more urgency to the upgrade from the Apache maybe.

Just connected my iTech Blueband R stereo bluetooth headphones to my HTC Titan and with Bluetooth utilising A2DP and AVRCP all functions worked perfectly.

Play, pause, next track, prev. track all work fine.

Go on.... do it.... you know you want to. You really should. You will be happier with a new gadget. Remember how happy you were when you got your Apache? Wouldnt you like to have that again? Im sure you would. Its like a drug. Its morally wrong not to upgrade. It may even be illegal not to.

I stop now k thx bye.

Thanks for the comments guys! Been busy workng for a crust today so no chance to check forums earlier! 

I will get one Tony - I will, I will, really!  Luckily I'm the boss and I'm due for an update (Apache served me faithfully for two years now) - will go nicely with my new Toshiba Portege R500 due at the end of this month!!  Now just hope I can use the Titan as a broadband modem for the R500 (slightly off topic I know!).
