And it's *always* her that can't hear me. I can always hear her. Any idea why she's always the one with the problem? The only difference is that she's on bluetooth and I'm not. But if she calls her sister in her own car, with both of them on bluetooth, there's no problem. It seems to only be my phone to her phone, when we're both hands free in the car.
My guess is that when you plug into the aux port that the built in mike on your phone gets shut off. You may need to use a cable like this.
