Not liking "change".

Post by pilgrimtrucker on Thu Mar 19, 2015 11:13 pm

I'm about done with this app.
Yes, I'm in my 50's. I drive a truck (second career), these may be factors with my frustration. Legally I need to use a Bluetooth headset while driving a commercial vehicle, my frustration has to do with the inconsistent operation of this app. Now, having just updated the latest version, nothing works!
My bluetooth will not respond, or should I say my phone will not respond to my bluetooth. It's late and I'm tired so I have no interest in giving you all the details. I did post my settings prior to this latest update but never received a response. I just want my phone and my headset to work. Is that asking too much?

I'll see if I can find your settings. There have been some updates due to Android 5.0 and 5.1.

Pilgrim,

Sorry,  I just noticed your question.  Sometimes I don't get notified and miss a question.  

You can send me an email at soundAbout@woodslink.net.  You will get an automated response, but that is to get people to look for answers on the message board first.

I can call you to walk you through the settings, but I'll post some instructions here, if you want to give it a try.

Some of the settings are unnecessary (phone call audio set to Bluetooth mono).

I think we should start fresh with the latest version of SoundAbout and SoundAbout Pro.

Wipe, un-install SoundAbout Pro.
1) Go into the Phone Settings.
2) Find "Manage Apps"
3) Scroll down to SoundAbout Pro and press it
4) Press Clear Cache, then Clear Data, then Force Stop, and then Un-Install.
5) Press back to see the list of apps.

Wipe, un-install SoundAbout.
1) Go into the Phone Settings. (You may already be here from last step)
2) Find "Manage Apps".   (You may already be here from last step)
3) Scroll down to SoundAbout Pro and press it.  
4) Press Clear Cache, then Clear Data, then Force Stop, and then Un-Install.
5) Press back a couple times to go back to the home screen.

Re-install SoundAbout Pro
1) Go here and install SoundAbout Pro from the Market again:  Click HERE to go to Android Market for SoundAbout Pro

Re-install Latest SoundAbout
1) There is a new Beta version, so we should just use that one.
1) Press here and install SoundAbout from the Message Board:  Click HERE to download BETA

Settings for your case
1) Open SoundAbout (no more SoundAbout Pro icon needed)
2) Check if "Media Audio" is set to "Let app decide"
3) Check if "Phone call Audio" is set to "Let app decide"
4) I think you are plugging in a 3.5mm (two male headset pins) from your pone to your truck AUX jack. The phone/app should detect this for playing audio.
5) The app should automatically make Bluetooth (mono) (phone profile) the default when you receive a phone call.

New feature you might like
1) Hold your finger down, on the home screen to add a new icon. When the menu pops up choose APPS.
2) Scroll down to "SoundAbout Voice Search" and click it.
3) The "SoundAbout Voice Search" icon should now be on your home screen.
4) If you use an app, like "Car Home", you can add "SoundAbout Voice Search" as a BIG button.
5) When you press "SoundAbout Voice Search", it will connect your Bluetooth microphone and open Google Now / Search.
6) When it beeps, you ask it a question.
7) It will reply through the Bluetooth speaker/headset. It will disconnect after 5 seconds.
8 ) The settings to configure the Voice Search and timings are in SoundAbout, in the "Voice Search behavior" section.
