    Default Blue tooth issues and audio jack

    Hey folks

    Okay so here it is... I use blue tooth in the car and not the ear piece... Hands free system... Mitsubishi 2012 galant... Here's the problem... Whenever I get an incoming call while the audio jack is plugged in.. I can't hear the person until the jack is removed... Hence I use audio jack for music in my car stereo...I asked samsung and there completely clueless... Secondly... Whenever I receive a call... It automatically defaults to both speaker phone and blue tooth and it's driving me insane... So any help would be appreciated thank you very much

    I'm confused - if you're using bluetooth in the car, why is the audio jack plugged in? If bluetooth isn't working to play music, that's the problem you should focus on solving first.

    The exact same issue and I don't have bluetooth in my car. It's a slight inconvenience which I would love to overcome.

    Does your car not have a bluetooth audio input? My 2012 Mazda has bluetooth built in. My head unit has one button that says "phone" (obviusly for making calls and bluetooth pairing) and then there is another button that says "aux". Pressing AUX once selects the aux headset jack in the car. Pressing the AUX button one more time selects the Bluetooth audio input so you can stream music wirelessly from your phone.

    I have a similar gripe in that I do have my BT setup for phone *and* audio...which is great...but whenever I want to use the navigation, I have to switch it over to aux to hear the turn by turn directions...when I'd rather listen to the radio or or something else and just have the voice come through the phone. It's easy enough to switch BT off before I engage nav, but then I almost always get a call that I can't answer because BT isn't on!

    There may be an option in the phone to use external speakers. I know people were mentioning it when they were using the new ibolt phone dock. Seems that phones using the head set jack had to switch that setting to allow the phone to use the cars speakers for calls. If you look through the ibolt review feed you may find the answer you are looking for... If I can find the forum I will post the link.

    This is a known issue. If you search some older posts you will find a lot about it. I have the exact same issue. I use a BT headset and I plug into the aux port and have the same trouble. I ended up buying a tunelink BT audio streaming device for my car to solve the issue. I am hoping this gets addressed with the 4.1 OTA.

    Thoes of you reading this thread may find that this may also be of intrest to you. I discribe how I was able to get the nav audio to come out of the phones built in speaker while leaving the phone paired with the bluetooth for calls. I also mentioned the Ibolt dock setting regarding the audio out. I'm not positive it will it will help with all your issues but it may be worth a read

    Thanks Stone, however this is a separate issue, unfortunately! That was the reason I bought the Tunelink BT device. I appreciate you posting the link.

    There is an app named SoundAbout. The pro version allows routing of phone calls and Bluetooth. You can route the media to "Wired Headphone" and the phone call can be set to "let phone decide" or "bluetooth".
