Car Whisperer - A few Clarifications

The Car Whisperer project caused a lot of press interest. Unfortunately, some of the articles published are talking about headsets (little Bluetooth earpieces). The Car Whisperer is for carkits or hands-free units (integrated in car infotainment systems or little boxes that are built in after buying the car).

When doing the carwhisperer tool, I did not plan to address the issues of one single manufacturer. The idea was to point this security issue out for quite a few manufacturers that do *not* pay attention to the recommendations of the Bluetooth SIG when manufacturing Bluetooth-enabled products.

The car whisperer image was censored due to complaints of a major German car manufacturer that also claims that the trifinite.logo was a modification of their logo... which is of course not true.
For this image I was using my own car, which turned out to be the same brand as the one that felt offended by this project. That was pure coincidence and doesn't change the fact that this manufacturer has issues with the carkits used.

The gallery has been replaced by a donation page, since the request rate caused a lot of traffic that wants to be paid for.

I keep posting information related to the car whisperer.
