    I would like to know if there is any routine I can set or a specific app that automatically switches on my mobile hotspot whenever I am auto-connecting to my car head-unit via Bluetooth?

    Mobile hotspots are connected over wifi, not bluetooth. Generally a head unit would connect via BT and I have yet to see one that connects to a mobile hotspot. Are you sure about your set up?

    @Galactic Zoo I'm picturing a head unit running Android that connects through BT for phone calls from the phone, but uses WiFi hotspot for getting its own data connection for mapping or media.

    @hallux Ahh! The unit in my BMW doesn't work that way but I understand what you say. Mine is just a BT connection although the car is equipped for mobile data, without a phone.
