Newb Confusion for Reading Notifications (SMS, E-mail) over HDP (not A2DP)

Post by Trinition on Sat Nov 09, 2013 11:08 am

I have a 2012 Honda Civic with their iMid feature and Bluetooth. It supports HDP and A2DP, but not MAP. Bluetooth audio works great except for one thing... I wan to listen to FM. The car will play Bluetooth *or* FM, but not both at the same time (it is NOT a mixer). However, while listening to FM, if a call comes in, it pre-empts the FM audio without any intervention on my part.

I feel like I should be able to use Sound About to send notifications as a Bluetooth call to the car, but I'm overwhelmed on which of the many settings I need to set to accomplish this. I've tried setting it for notifications over Blutooth Mono and disabled A2DP in my phone's Bluetooth pairing to my car, but still don't hear anything.

I recognize that it could be the phone (HTC One running CyanogenMod 10.2) or the car that will prevent this from working, but I'm certain too that it could be my inexperience in configuring Sound About. I checked through these forums but couldn't find anyone using it this same way (or, I'm using the wrong terminology and so couldn't find it).

Any suggestions?

I'm not sure what you changed. The easiest way to get the settings back to default are to go into Manage apps, find SoundAbout and clear cache, clear data, and force stop.

Then run it again.

If the reading of notifications are using Text-To-Speech, then try these instructions on the link below. They refer to Navigation, but it's the same instructions.
Like you said; each phone, ROM, car can behave differently, so it's hard to say how it will react. You may have to adjust the "delay" setting in the instructions:

If you use Google Maps Navigation, you can get a "double" voice effect. It has something to do with their "saved" words files. The instructions for that are here:
