I've got numerous emails from them saying I can't do it and that it's not possible to deactivate Assist, but I pointed out thier own service bulletin that shows how to do it. Just remember that they're probably some kids sitting in a cube responding to emails with form letters. They do a quick search in thier database and answer with what they find. They have no interest in pleasing the customer, just answering with some type of response.
I found out yesterday that a guy who works on our servers via a contract has actually done a BT retrofit in a car with Assist. All he did was replace the Assist module with the BT module and install the pairing system. He hasn't been in since last week, but I'm going to ask him about it when I see him. One of the links above is his web site. I didn't know he worked with us when I posted that, though. I just realized it when I saw his picture on that website yesterday. I see him about once every two weeks. I don't work directly with him, but I know the guys who do and he's one of the smartest gadget freaks out there. If he says it can be done, it can be done.
