I cannot dial or initiate an outgoing call using my Car's Bluetooth system, if the screen is locked. If I try to dial out using my car's system, i.e either using numbers stored in car's speed dial or voice dialing feature. it simply doe not work. But when I look at the phone and unlock the screen, phone starts dialing out.
This totally defeats the purpose of hand free Bluetooth system, in the car. I never has this issue with any other phone, including Nexus 4, Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S3 or various versions of iphone.
I am having problems with the combination of radio apps (e.g. TuneIn, CBC Radio, NPR), and a Bluetooth speaker (Blackweb SoundPebble). The apps work fine and will play through the Nexus 5 speakers or headphones when no Bluetooth speaker is connected. However, when I connect a Bluetooth speaker, the apps do not work - they don't get past the title screen. The Bluetooth speaker works OK with locally stored files e.g. music saved to the device.
I bought a song from the play store the other day only to find that Google Play Music will no longer play any music on my Nexus 5. I do have PowerAmp set as my default player (I think) and I cleared the GPM app cache. It should work but it doesn't play anything at all, none of my other music either.
Rooted Nexus 5 running stock 4.4.4 . Until now I've had Bluetooth turned off to save battery but I now want to use it in my car. However it is grayed out in the phone settings and will not turn on. If I select to turn it on in settings, it switches to a grayed out "on" (see screenshot) and 2 seconds later goes back to off. I've checked my apps such as xprivacy, etc. and cannot find a reason for this.
It seems like all of a sudden my Nexus 5 has decided that whenever I have Bluetooth turned on that it is holding the device awake. Even when no devices are connected (connects to my car and a BT speaker).
I'm sure it didn't used to do this.
Because of the hold awake battery life is down compared to normal.
Then from GSAM:
You can see that BT sharing takes up a non-trivial amount of power. I'd like to get this thing back to normal.
Fully patched firmware, including today's Security patch.
I'm currently working around this by turning BT on only when I want to use it. That is difficult....
Before explaining what the problem is, I want to state I have searched Google, XDA and various other websites to solve it myself. I do know the #1 rule of XDA
Today I've tried to use ADB Sideload to install a rom on my Nexus 5. I've done this before one time, when I accidentally formatted my entire phone, and it worked. Currently my phone is in TWRP Recovery, and ADB does recognize my phone when I type in 'adb devices' in the command prompt. However, when I click ADB Sideload on TWRP to sideload the rom from my laptop, the phone disconnects from my laptop (I hear the 'ding' from Windows), and I can't sideload anything at all.
I did update all possible drivers (ADB and Google), tried all USB-ports available, and even tried another laptop, but nothing worked.
I was wondering if there's any way to change the behavior of audio routing when answering calls from the device itself. Bluetooth headset is connected > a call > the call answered from the device itself (not from headset button) > The problem: Call audio is still routed to the headset..Bluetooth headset is connected > a call > the call answered from the device itself (not from headset button) > Call audio it routed to the device earpiece..Bluetooth headset is connected > a call > the call answered from headset button > Call audio it routed to the headset?
After I disconnected my Bluetooth headphones, I have no sound coming out of my speakers... Music plays but no sound. I rebooted and still no sound. Works fine with wired & wireless headphones, phone rings fine, no music or media plays... Im Stock/Unrooted.
My bluetooth is keeping the device awake all the time since the past one month. Even if I disconnect my G Watch, bluetooth drains the battery. Waited for Marshmallow and installed it yesterday after formatting the phone but it bluetooth is again at the top in power consumption in the battery stats and keeps my Nexus 5 awake all the time. It used to work really well until last month.
I just installed the latest Chroma custom ROM and I cannot make the led work: it is enabled, both for notifications and battery, but it doesn't work. When plugging a cable that will charge the phone I can see the led flash briefly (~ 0.5sec) and then it stays off.
The LCD works perfectly. Images that are displayed are correct, colors are good, but the touch aspect of it does not work. Occasionally the touch would come back but 95% of the time, the screen doesn't respond to touches. The phone wasn't dropped or anything. It just decided one day to crap out on the touch. Would it be easier to just replace the digitizer and not waste money to buy the whole screen assembly? Not to mention the replacement screens on eBay are probably not as good as the original OEM screen.
On cataclysm and suddenly something is sucking my battery's lifeblood like a master vampire. Wake lock detector shows Bluetooth share is the culprit. Com.Android.Bluetooth. always have bt on. Reboot doesn't work. Can't find where on marshmallow to clear Bluetooth cache
I'm having a issue with my android phone (Google Nexus 5) & bluetooth system in my car. When I make an outgoing call it doesn't ring, the radio just continues to play. Once the person answers then they come over the car speakers. This just started a couple weeks ago. I've tried turn off "Ok Google" that hasn't fixed it.
Apparently I lack sufficient brainpower to do something that, in my small feeble mind, I assumed would be easy: connect my Nexus 5 to a Windows 7 PC via Bluetooth so that I can access the storage files on my Nexus. Very specific, very simple, yet it does not work. I have searched everywhere, and I do not need a tutorial on how to pair them. I have them paired. That pairing does not do anything, it has no function.
On my Nexus 5, it says it is paired to my PC. On my PC, I have a fugly *** Nokia-esque icon that has "Nexus 5" under icon listed under Bluetooth Devices. I do not understand what else I need to do?
P.S. How do I find "Bluetooth drivers"? Windows update has no clue WTF to do, and like I said, I am retarded and lack basic reading comprehension since I cannot find any information that is relevant through searching online.
I just flashed the OTA update for Android 6.0 last week on my Nexus 5 and I noticed that with the new update, phone calls no longer get routed through Bluetooth on my Mazda3. It is able to pair fine with the car and can stream music through Bluetooth, but calls do not go through.
Here is what happens: When I place a call, the audio automatically gets routed back to the phone. If the other person picks up, calls will continue going through the phone speaker unless I manually select route through Bluetooth. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't, but it does get frustrating trying this workaround especially while driving.
I tried unpairing and re-pairing bluetooth with the car, cleared the data and cache of the Bluetooth app on the phone, and even tried a factory reset, but the problem still persists. For the record, when I did this with Lollipop 5.1.1, it worked without a hitch.
1) Bluetooth wont turn on, but wifi works 2) Factory Reset to 5.1.1 , 5.0, 4.4.x doesn't work
My Nexus 5 refuses to turn on Bluetooth only. The slider moves to the right and then back again. I have factory reset the phone 3 times, flashing different versions from 5.1.1, 5.0 and 4.4.x to see if it fixes the problem, but I have had no luck. I know some other people have had problems too, but there doesn't seem to be a clear solution. I don't know if it is a hardware issue, since wifi works fine and the wifi and Bluetooth antennas are one unit located on the back cover( according to my understanding). I tried replacing the back cover from a different nexus 5, but still couldn't get Bluetooth to work.
I got nexus 5 a week back and sometimes the screen lock does not work even if I click power button to lock the screen. I just have to wait to get battery down then it starts working, i restart the phone couple of times but the same problem appears screen does not get locked automatically nor manually.
I like to put my phone on silent overnight so I cannot hear incoming emails and texts. However, having 2 elderly and infirm parents living quite a distance away, I would like the phone to ring in case of emergency. This would be brother, sister, care home etc. Selective numbers so to speak. I can't find a way to do it on the phone, but note there are many apps that suggest they may work.
I have a nexus 5 and when Facebook updated yesterday it quit working. It says setting up Facebook when you launch it after awhile it says just a moment. While this is happening my phone gets hot and it drains the battery.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no success.
when I turn the WiFi repeater on it says "failed to start WiFi repeater: failed to start hotspot".I don't know what's going on, it always worked when I had kk and now that I actually need it does not work..
When I have BT activated on the N6P along with Google Maps Nav, the sound output (voice directions) is either:a. When phone is set to BT stream music = sound command is partially cutoff at the beginning - orb. If the radio is on = No sound output is heard at allGoogle Nav is set to output sound via BT under its settings.
This also happened on my OnePlus One. I thought I had read somewhere that this happen because of the BT format that Android sends to the car's audio system is incompatible.
So I have been using stock ROM or very close to for the past 6months or so and constantly have this issue despite clean wiping multiple times while moving from Lolipop to M preview to M. At first I thought it was my specific car but now is happening with the rental I have.i am new to Bluetooth so maybe normal but I don't think so. When I connect to my cars Bluetooth then make a call, after the call I get a constant "bluesleep" wake lock until I turn Bluetooth off. If I make a call during the day while driving then get out of the car when I get home, it keeps my phone awake all night unless I remember to turn blue tooth off.Ive noticed it only happens once I make a call or use the Bluetooth for something. If I just simply connect to my car, I don't get a wake lock.
Is this how Bluetooth is supposed to work? I can't imagine so but the fact I'm basically stock and have wiped many times and different android versions makes me think maybe it's just an android thing.
