IPhone :: IOS 5.1.1 Now Bluetooth Device Not An Audio Output Option?
May 19, 2012
After upgrading to 5.1.1 - my handsfree kit connects with iPhone still fine, but it has become impossible to hear any calls through it?! Whereas, I used to have an option to "choose audio output" (iPhone, speaker, or handsfree device), there is now only the standard built-in speaker option - as though no Bluetooth were connected. The handsfree device (Blueant S4) is connected and contacts synced, and still allows me to make calls - and yet, the audio of the phone calls can only be from the iPhone itself.
I recently bought a new VW GTI. I'm a software engineer and I'm very well versed in my iPhone and it's operation. My car maintains 2 external connections with my phone. My hands free phone requires the use of bluetooth. For my stereo, I perfer the MDI to dock connector for the audio quality. Here is the following problem I experience.
I turn on my stero to the MDI input interface Listen to music, and use Waze to navigate Receive a phone call, which initiates the bluetooth audio out End the phone call
Audio out is now set to bluetooth. It does not return to the MDI output interface, as a result my stero doesn't work.
I've gone digging through all my settings, but I can't find anything relevant to what I want. Basically I want to set my audio device output preference order. My device order would be the following.
MDI Interface VW Bluetooth Headphones/Speakers
Is it possible to to this or something similar with my iPhone?
When my Lumia is connected to the car via bluetooth, its connected with both audio profiles, Voice (Phone Call Audio) and Music (A2DP).So when connected and Nokia Drive is running the audio is sent to A2DP to then be sent to the aux input of the car stereo. This is all well and good if you have the radio on and AUX selected. But if you are listening to FM radio or a CD etc you don't hear any voice guidance from Nokia Maps.
This is a question directed at Nokia Maps Developers. Can a setting be created that allows you to select audio output via bluetooth? If you could select it to go via the Voice/Phone call Profile, like for instance the Speech input works on Windows Phone, for reading/replying to text messages, then when ever there is a direction to be spoken, the car bluetooth would treat it as a phone call, cut sound to the radio and speak the direction through the speakers no matter what the radio was outputting.If the above doesn't make sense then please ask me as this would be a worth while setting to be developed.
I want to connect my xperia pro to my car audio system. (Bluetooth of my car audio system has a pairing code) when I want to connect, the page of entering pairing code not appear and an error will appear in screen ("wrong pairing code").
I purchased nokia 5235 two weeks back. The ringtone volume is very very low and most of the time I missed the calls due to it. Also audio output of songs is very low. Is this the problem with all nokia 5235 or probably with my handset. Kindly suggest the solution.
I have Nokia C5-00 mobile bought 5 months back. My phone's audio input and audio output are really bad. I have the latest software update i.e. 062.001. And recently I have given for service in a Nokia service station. But the problem is still the same. So how could I improve the audio of my phone. Or else is it the problem with Nokia C5-00.
Is it possible to force the audio output to be played through the speakers of the Xperia Ray, even when headphones are plugged in ? I know it is possible to do that when you listen to FM radio, but can you also do it when you listen to something else ? (... and particularly when you listen to your own music ?)
I just got my Atrix 2 yesterday in hopes of it replacing my iPod touch as a music and phone device.I loaded up my stuff and went to my car to test it out (obviously through the headphone jack) and I was dramatically disappointed. I went straight to Amazon to look at the price of the latest iPod model! Sounds like a muffled tape deck.There are just plain out frequencies that are muffled or missing on the Atrix 2. Does not take a good ear to hear it either. I wish I could sit down with every person who looks at this or a Motorola engineer to show them.
My 6303 has recently developed the problem that sometimes when calling or receiving a call, I cannot hear the caller although they can hear me. I also have the problem that when I connect my phone to a PC via USB cable, the PC crashes (serious error) which I will post separately.
I love using Pandora while I'm in the car, but it's a battery drain. I use a normal 3.5mm plug for the audio, and all is good. But when I try to charge my Tour at the same time as using it for audio, I get a terrible screech over the music.
Wondering if there is a way to get digital audio output through the USB ports for use with an external DAC. I'm wanting to use the Atrix via HD Dock as a good source component for my home stereo. If anyone has set something up along those lines, or using another solution, i'd like to hear about it.
I've noticed that the volume does not change at all when output is the car dock. E.g. lowering the volume does not actually decrease the volume until you get down to muting the device (which does still work). There are no problems when listening through the headphone out, but I don't wish to negate the functionality of the rather expensive Motorola Cardock.This is a major inconvenience as it generally causes an ugly distortion and could damage my car speakers.
Is there any way to continue audio output from a browser tab once no longer in foreground, or after task switching, such as with the music app?I have the wifi Xoom. The Sirius XM online android app can be sideloaded, but won't successfully run, requiring use ot the browser-based player.The interface is awful, but functions. The browser changes audio source to the current foreground tab, or stops audio after task switching.Would like to be able to run it in the background until SXM releases a tablet-compatible app.
This problem started recently. My bluetooth headset connects, and can trigger the call to be answered, but the iPhone doesn't use it as the audio source. In fact, the button that normally selects the sources, now shows only the speaker icon (and toggles speakerphone).
After updating to 5.1, it seemed to be fixed -- that same button again let me choose the audio source. That was yesterday, but today when I answered a call, it didn't go to the headset, and the source button again shows only the speaker icon.
The iPhone answers the call when I press the button on the headset. It's just not seeing any audio source.
I've powered on & off, not fixing the problem. I can't poinpoint the start of the trouble exactly -- it seemed to simply work one day and not work the next. I honestly don't remember if it coincided with updating to 5.01.
I'm having problems playing my .mp4 files on my TV using the HDMI output option. The mirroring keeps blacking out and coming back in. It's almost not woth watching a movie because of it. Why this would be happening? Is it an issue with the OS? i need this to work or I will be buying an iPad2.........which I don't want to do!!
I got the phone 2 days ago. Rooted, and set up the phone. Went out to the car - a car loaded with DigitalDesign 15" subs, and like 5kW of power to make some noice.
Connected the Nexus 6P via bluetooth to my Alpine headunit, volume goes from ZERO to 35. Normaly, on volume 28 you just can't sit in the car. Now!? Well, i had it at MAX (35), and we could still talk in the car... what the...!?
Tried with another phone, and crazy sound just like before.. so something is very wrong with the bluetooth output from my Nexus 6P.
Same when i try to stream music from spotify to my Marshall speaker. Just sooo low volume...
This will be a deadlbreaker for me. I stream music all days long, and can't have a phone that can't handle it....
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.
As we all know, the iPhone can TRANSMIT audio via bluetooth, but is it possible for the iPhone to also RECEIVE audio? Particularly from a TV or computer (assuming they also have BT)? Any know if this is possible, and if so, how to do that?
I'm having audio issues with my 3gs when bluetooth is turned on. I'm running 3.1.2 and jailbroken. My BT device is a Jabra Stone.
When in the car I connect my 3GS to the car and let my headunit control the audio. After about five minutes of playing music the music will stop playing from the car and start playing through the BT earpiece. I can still control the play functions through the car's headunit. If I turn off the headset the audio returns to the car speakers. I can't find a setting on the phone to NOT play music through BT.
On all my Windows Mobile phones in the past you could select which services to associate with BT. Seems with the Iphone it is all or none. Anyone know a workaround?
Since i updated my Iphone 4S to 5.1.1 my bluetooth audio does not work with my pioneer avic930bt head unit. Phone calls work fine over the bluetooth, but i cannot stream the audio to the pioneer. Yet if i take my iphone to my wifes Acura, it streams fine.
My iPhone 3GS used to work well with a Motorola H700 headset and the bluetooh in my Lexus. All of a sudden, I could connect with the H700 or the Lexus and place a call but there was no audio received or sent even though the screen in the Lexus said it was being sent/received. I have checked all settings; I have removed and re-setup the iPhone on both devices and to no avail. Is there something I am missing? I know the bluetooth system in the Lexus works because i can connect my Morotola SLVR to it and get audio both ways.
iPhone5 drops audio (music) playback to the handsfree built into my car.Â This happens about 40% of the time and after a few seconds.Â I have to disable bluetooth, wait and reenable.Â I've seen it drop after longer, but typically it's seconds into connecting and starting playback.Â Before upgrading to iOS 7.1.1 this never happened.Â Phone is placed in cup holder in center console so signal strength should not be an issue.Â
Not sure if the phone's handfree part would still work.Â I am suspecting that it does not.Â
I am unable to connect iPhone 3GS to car audio system via Bluetooth. When I turn in bluetooth in settings (in iphone) the icon appears on the top bar, but as soon I turn away from settings screen the bluetooth icon disappears. I have been trying to connect to my car audio system via Bluetooth which used to work properly a few weeks back.
