I came so far that I found a project,
http://nohands.sourceforge.net/source.html, which is not HFP (Hands Free
Profile) but the server (if FR is the client). So my guess is, if I can
get my FR to connect with this, it should also connect to my car. The
advantage is, for testing that one can dumb and debug the whole
BT-communication, because nohands also runs on Linux-machine.
