Motorcycle wired media and phone BT to GPS, Samsung GS3

Post by Big Bird on Fri Feb 13, 2015 7:48 am

Sort of similar to http://soundabout.userboard.net/t381-connecting-to-a-motorcycle-helmet-headset, I guess.

I used to use my phone by Bluetooth through my Garmin Zumo GPS wired into my motorcycle audio. Worked great.

Then I wired in my Samsung Galaxy S3 as a media player and 2nd GPS on my motorcycle. All the media audio works great, but the darn Samsung default prevents the phone BT from working when the headset jack is full. So I could dial the call through the GPS, hear the call through the media out (phone into bike and wired helmet headset) but my voice was only making it to the GPS and dead. Call fail. Big PITA to unplug and re-pair every time I wanted to make a call. Plus I was moving to a nuvi GPS with lots of voice commands, so I didn't want to reroute mic and lose that.

I'm so please I finally bumped into this app. SoundAbout makes it work. I think the default config on the free app is all it took, but I was so happy I threw down for Pro anyway. Thanks.

Yes, there are many Samsung owners that plug a headset 3.5mm cable into their cars as well. When they get a phone call, their car's Bluetooth won't work. It's the same issue you were having.

Glad it's working for you.
