Auto Bluetooth switcher?

Is there such an app?
Basically, all I want is Bluetooth switching on automatically when the phone detects my paired head unit.

To clarify, I don't want Bluetooth on at all, only when I'm in the car.

Yes Llama or Tasker.

I personally use Llama and have my Bluetooth set to come on when I leave my home wifi it's then set to wait 5 minutes and then turn off if Bluetooth isn't connected (is assuming I'm not in my car)

You can set then to do pretty much anything you want. Tasker is more powerful, but it's also very difficult to use. Llama on the other hand is a piece of **** to use :D

NFC is quite good for this too as geo fencing/ap detect will miss the places you don't regularly drive to. Just keep a tag or sticker on your key ring or in the car and is just a quick tap.

Hi. Recently installed Llama, and wish to do something very similar to you. However, I can't work out how to set my home wifi as a zone, only a cell or map point. Would you be able to explain how you went about it? Thanks! :thumbsup:

Here is my Bluetooth setup
I use it for 2 WiFi areas, hence there are two WiFi id's there

I'm now in the middle of setting it all up as I want it...there's certainly lots of options!

Bluetooth is turned on only while talking over the telephone..It will be automatically switch on/off.....

I tried this with the bluetooth in my car using Tasker. Sometimes it took a while to connect, meaning that by the time I answered the call the person had hung up. Now I just leave the bluetooth on all of the time.
