I bought a stereo bluetooth receiver from DealExtreme for $13 so I could use it in my car. It has a built in mic, so if calls come in, I can pick them up, but I drive a convertible, so it's too noisy in the car to use that.
I also have a jawbone bluetooth headset that I use in the car...it works great for phone calls in a noisy enviroment.
I just discovered that if I go to Settings:Wireless Controls:Bluetooth Settings and long press on the BCK-08 (the stereo bluetooth module), I can select options, and uncheck the 'phone audio'.
Now, I can use both at the same time...and the cool thing is that if a call comes in while listening to music, it mutes the music till I hang up, then starts it back up where it left off!
I'm doing a college project on Bluetooth for Android, and I'm trying to understand how to manage communication between multiple connected devices. Eventually I'm going to develop a multiplayer Bluetooth Game.Currently I've adapted Android's sample app BluetoothChat to connect my three Nexxus One phones.1 connects to 2 who connects to 3.1 sends its messages successfully to 2. 3 sends its messages successfully to 2 as well. 2 can send its messages successfully to 1 and 3, as it shares a ConnectedThread with both. But I can't figure out.how to handle getting communication from 1 to 3. Does anyone have any examples of communication between multiple devices or has done this themselves?
Iam connecting 3G phone for my Android device for internet connection and another Socket(SPP) for CAN signal receiving.Whenever I manually connect to the Bluetooth tethering via 3G phone, i can browse internet perfectly and speed is good.Whenever programmatically connect to the 3G connection, i couldn't browse internet.i checked in shell and observing that in my mobile 'device is connected' message displayed and E symbol appears.No problem for me to connect Socket.But I got problem to use 3G phone.For this iam using APN/DUN mode.I checked both but no use.Is there any performance issue here or anything wrong to connect different devices by using Bluetooth API in android.Why this happends while connecting Mobile programmatically.
Any way to automatically sync Play Store applications across multiple devices. In other words, I have a Nexus 7, TPad, LG Connect (work phone) and then I also switch between a GNex and Rezound (personal phone).
Is there anyway that if I download an app from one device that the app will also automatically be pushed/downloaded on the other devices?
It is a real pain to have to remember to go to each other device and download the app, and even worse when I switch between handsets that may not have been used for several week.
I wan't to AUTO connect 2 bluetooth devices in my car.1 device uses phone-audio (parrot) and the otoher ad2p protocol (car-radio)..It only auto-connects 1 device. Somethimes the parrot and the other time my radio. When i connect the other device by hand its connected to 2 devices.
I have an origonal rom on my HTC sensation. I had the same problem with the revolution rom.
I am trying to find a Bluetooth speaker that can retain in its memory multiple devices (5 preferred but 3-5 is okay too). I know the Bose Soundlink does this, but it is more money than I want to spend right now. I have an imonster, but it only remembers one device at a time.
What are the options to connect (create stream? or send datagrams?) between two android devices? (I know I can use Internet, but i think that lag will be big and it's overuse to just exchange data between to phones that are nearby). Is it possible to use bluetooth or wifi ? so two applications on two devices can connect each other (create bi- directional stream) and send some data.
I have a question about the way the Android market handles purchased apps.I've seen in other posts where if you upgrade to a new phone, your purchased apps will follow you.But how about if you use more than one Android device? For instance, later this year I may get an Android tablet. Presumably the apps I purchased on my Droid will downloadable on the tablet. But will they remain downloadable on my Droid? And if I purchase an app on the tablet, will it also be downloadable on my Droid?It seems to me that if the apps are associated with your account, then you should be able to download them on multiple devices.I was just wondering if anyone has actually tried and confirmed this.
As suface flinger uses fb0 for rendering the image and video. i want to change the frame buffer devices dynamically for rendering the image on the screen one time on Fb0 other time on Fb1. i am looking into the surface flinger code. but we are not able to get the pointer where to change for this. can simeone please give us some pointer.
I know there isn't bluetooth API in 1.0 SDK, but I have a doubt. I need to know the visible bluetooth devices. That is, I only need do a scan of the bluetooth devices and save the diferent addresses. I don't need connect to them.
Is there any plan to increase the number of Exchange type accounts on HTC Android devices. Maybe in the new Sense Updates? Why did HTC not implement the code included in the stock Androind mail app (since at least 2.1), or at lease leave it alone! Since Hotmail has improved it's service to offer an Exchange style connection option there is a real day to day need to have at least two Exchange accounts on one device. I have been using the stock 2.2 android email client for some time and although it feeds into the unified calender app it does not feed into the Sense contacts ribon etc., I also goes high CPU at times (file conflict?) so is not a suitable workaround. And no I do not wish to use a third party app such as countdown, I like that with HTC's Sense system all things feed into a common thread - third party apps I have found have their own databases for email & calender etc. which I do not want.
Happy droid user on Nexus One. Thinking about playing around with one of those cheap android tablets. If I logon to that tablet with my google account, will it mess up my N1 and existing account/settings? Also what happens with my apps? can I download the ones I've paid for again (onto the new device)? etc.
First off, sorry if this is too subjective, I just didnt know how else/where to ask.Anyway, in the light of all my recent questions, I'm getting ready to release an Android app soon, and most of the testing has been done on my phone, the Droid. I really dont have the money to test on "multiple" devices, nor do I know anyone with an older phone that I could ask for help that would possibly get any kind of bug. Not to mention, when I do get a bug report, how would I go about fixing it for that particular phone without having to buy it to make sure it actually gets fixed, or that the person didnt just came across a one-time freakish accident of a glitch?
I am very new to android,i developed an sample web application and hosted it apk build file in different android version and on different sized devices,here i am getting problem in my design of layout such as listview not being displayed properly bottom portion is not displayed well and the align is not so good.
I am building an indoor application which continuously scans the bluetooth dongles located at different locations in a place like a mall or library.As I move in the mall with android phone in my hand I should be able to get the nearest dongle which I can connect to(Stupid Idea but I want to do something else with this).For this I should be able to continuously scan for the bluetooth devices.
I am trying to use Bluetooth SPP to communicate over it. In some Android phones, SPP profile is not activated. I faced the problem in the application that SPP was not activated and so the connection could not be established over bluetooth and when I started another app that is 3g hotspot which I think activates SPP and I was able to connect over bluetooth in my app.
So, how can we actually activate SPP profile of bluetooth in Android devices? And does all the android devices has SPP profile?
I have developed an application which en-composes list views and posted that .apk file in my htc device, the design and alignment everything works fine,but the problem When i am testing in various devices such as Morotolo Droid,Nexus Devices the alignment of Listviews goes wrong, so i planned to use the Layout folder as layout-hdpi,layout-ldpi, and layout-mdpi, for that i changed my manifest file as
Is it right putting android:anyDensity="true",also i used dp instead of dip. I went through this url, but still am not able to get a clear idea in this http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/screens_support.html. so friends pls tell me(help me) to get clear idea in this and tell what mistakes i have doing. This is my main page xml code frnds.
I was cleaning all the crap off my phone I don't use anymore and I believe I accidently removed the bluetooth software that allows it to connect to stereo bluetooth headsets. I can control the player with the headset, I can make phone calls from it, but when I try to play music there is no sound.
I was trying to reset the phone using RUU, but it reboots the phone and then says it cannot reconnect after that and the software shuts down. I can still sync with outlook, so my driver is not the issue. I am out of ideas.
Is there anyway possible to reinstall just the bluetooth portion of the rom?
In one of my application I need to display all the Wifi and bluetooth devices which are paired to my mobile and it's Signal Strengths .Wifi side it is ok for me to display signal strength(RSSI).But i got a problem at Bluetooth side.I searched for the method which is suitable for this task,i found one method that is intent.getShortExtra(BluetoothDevice.EXTRA_RSSI, Short.MIN_VALUE);
It is displaying only the new device RSSI which is not paired to my mobile.Is there any idea for getting all bluetooth devices RSSI.Plz give me idea or source code ?
So I already have my phone paired to my Nexus 7 for Tablet Talk. I am going to be getting a Bluetooth headset, along with a Keyboard, and eventually my smart watch. Yes! Radioactive! So my question was can the Nexus 7 support all of these devices working together simultaneously?
