    Hi!
    Is there a way to automatically launch my Note 8's hotspot when I get into my car (my Note 8 connects to the car by Bluetooth)?
    Thanks in advance!

    If you connect your phone with your car via Bluetooth, you don't need the wifi.

    Yes, I do. To connect my son's tablet to the hotspot...

    You could probably use Tasker for something like that.

    Thanks. Googling that plugin now. I was hoping the note 8 had a built in task function...

    Why not just map Bixby to do it.

    It requires you to initiate it but you could tell Bixby to turn on Hotspot.

    Cool - I didn't know I could map Bixby to do it! Is there a tutorial for Bixby anywhere?

    I learned by watching sakitech on YouTube

    And reading the Bixby tutorials in the Bixby app

    Ok, I'm trying Tasker but I can't figure out how to set the profile "when paired with car" "open hotspot" or something like that...
    And similarly "when disconnected from car" "close hotspot and restart wifi"

    There's about a million of them in the Bixby app.

    So I tried with tasker and it's little more complicated than I want. Download automate, there's actually a profile that you can download that does exactly what you want. Hope that helps.

    This is what i use. Works good. You could set it up that when it connects to your car Bluetooth it turns hot spot on, then do another rule that when your phone disconnects from your car Bluetooth it will turn your hot spot off.

    Works good. I have it set to turn my wifi on and off in similar conditions so my phone uses my tablets data while in vehicle. I use same program on tablet to auto turn on and off hot spot on the tablet.

    Thanks for your answers guys :-)
    I got advice on a Tasker forum and set up Tasker to do the job. Works perfectly :-)

    Tasker is a good choice, automation with no effort!

    That would mean having bixby on. Auto tasker is easier, I don't have to do anything, it just happens.

    I know this thread is a few months old but would you mind posting your Tasker solution? I've been trying to do this same thing w/o any luck.

    TIA

    Don't they make programmable nfc tags? That could be something to do.

    Was just going to mention this - I have one stuck to the back of my phone holder in the car, one under my desk at work, etc. Each sets the profile I want for that setting (volume, bluetooth/wifi, launch apps, etc.).

    Was struggling with this issue for a while, tasker tricks didn't help and autoinput looked not very reliable/convenient.
    Solution I found -
    1. just install GoodLock from Galaxy Store: http://apps.samsung.com/appquery/app...droid.goodlock
    2. In the application main menu Enable/Install "Routines" component
    3. Configure your routine - select bluetooth connection in Condition and "Turn Hotspot On" in action section.

    As the app was developed by Samsung, it has access to enable hotspot by default. Works on my galaxy S8+ with latest android Pie update.
