Use Bluetooth To Automatically Scan For Nearby Devices Sunning Certain App

May 7, 2013

I am just getting started with android development. I would like to know if it is possible to use Bluetooth to automatically scan for nearby devices that are running my app as well.

So for instance when i walk into my house it should automatically scan for another phone in the house running my app, and then say if it is running my app send a message to that phone.

Android :: Periodically Scan For Bluetooth Devices

Jul 19, 2010

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.

Jelly Bean :: Shortcut To Nearby Devices?

Jan 4, 2014

On an ATT Samsung Galaxy S3 running 4.3 Jelly Bean (not rooted), I want to create a shortcut to Nearby Devices so I can easily toggle on/off my DLNA. It is found in Settings | Connections | Connect and Share.

Exploring the launcher shortcut options in Apex, Buzz, Nova, TouchWiz home and ssLauncher (my default), I could find no shortcut to Nearby Devices.

Using ES App Manager set to System Apps, I found Nearby Devices at com.sec.android.pernission.PERSONAL_MEDIA, but the 'Add To Desktop' feature in ES seemingly does nothing with this app.

I know I could probably use an app like Tasker to do this, but it seems there should be another way.

General :: How To Pair Bluetooth Device Despite Not Being Detected By Scan

Jun 15, 2012

I have an MSI Windpad Enjoy 7 Tab that I used to to connect to an ELM327 OBDII bluetooth dongle for car diagnostics (torque app).

After upgrading from froyo to gingerbread, my tablet bluetooth doesn't detect the elm327 anymore, it also doesn't detect my car kit but it still detects other android phones perfectly well.

I know it's not a hardware problem or incompatibility since I already paired that device to this tablet before, it's a scan problem.

So here's my question: is there a way to "force feed" the bluetooth address of a device into android so it doesn't have to rely on a scan to find it?

Android :: Use 2 Bluetooth Devices At Same Time

Jun 15, 2009

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!

Android :: Query Bluetooth Devices. It Is Possible?

Jan 27, 2009

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.

I have read here

http://groups.google.com/group/android-beginners/browse_thread/thread...

that API "only expose functionality to use/control headsets (audio profile)."

And now my question: It is possible do this functionality? Can I find which bluetooth devices are visible?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Not Finding Bluetooth Devices

Oct 1, 2010

Galaxy S f/w 2.1. It doesn't find either of my bluetooth devices - headset and handsfree. My old phone worked fine on both of them.

I enable Bluetooth. The icon goes nice and green. The blue squiggly thing appears in the top bar.

I activate my VisorBlade hands-free device. It beeps and the right lights come on. But no glimmer of recognition from the Galaxy. I go to Settings > Wireless and Network > Bluetooth > Scan Devices. Nothing found.

I switch on my Plantronics Voyager 520 and it beeps and the right lights come on. Phone remains nonchalently aloof. Scan for devices. Nothing doing.

But. My PC finds the phone when I do the Make Device Visible thing.

HTC EVO 4G :: Connecting To Monitor Via Cable - Two Bluetooth Devices

May 29, 2010

My gf's computer is going south, but all she really does is go online. If I were to find a way to connect her Evo to a monitor (this should be easy with and HDMI cable, right?), a mouse (bluetooth?), and a keyboard (can you do two bluetooth devices at the same time?), she'd be able to essentially have a computer when she docks her phone to all this, right?

But, does Andoid have an app and Evo the capability to bluetooth to a mouse and keyboard and is the HDMI cable the way to go to get the display on a spare monitor, or could I use the USB? Just thinking out loud here. Cell phone processors are fast enough to handle internet browsing and emailing, which is pretty much all she does, and the speed of the connection (we're in a 4G area) would make downloads fast. How could it be done?

Android :: Activate SPP Profile Of Bluetooth In Devices

Oct 27, 2010

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?

General :: How To Switch Between Bluetooth Devices Quickly

I have a Plantronics headset, and a Sony car stereo (w/ BT). When I'm in the car, I prefer to use Bluetooth over the stereo, so I'm looking for a quicker way to swap between the two devices without having to go into settings.

Auto-switching would be preferable, but a widget that can just bring up all device so I can select which one I'd rather use, would work, too.

Android :: Adapting Bluetooth Chat For Multiple Devices

Jun 1, 2010

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?
