The "stored location" button will retrieve the location of the last Bluetooth device that disconnected while the service was running. Setting the preference "notify in foreground" and "start at boot" will ensure the service is running when needed. Do not install to SD card if you are using the "start at boot" feature.

Julia Johnson I just purchased the Motorola SF500 Wireless Buds which supports Bluetooth A2DP (previous had the LG-Tones). I have been searching for several days to find the perfect app that was compatible with the buds and that would read my text messages, mail etc through the headset. (I tried a lot of android apps, all of which were confusing and way to complicated not to mention they didn't work with my device). I was super excited when I came across this app and read all the positive reviews and even more excited to see the instructions from Jim Roal - Thank you Jim. Finally, I was able to follow the instructions with no problems (thanks to the added link Jim provided with his review). I need to point out that I had to turn off my Bluetooth from my phone and back on for everything to work properly. Then I was doing the "Happy Dance" it worked, it worked - I am a Happy Customer now!

Well done! Excellent app, I was really just looking for something to auto-disable WiFi when I connect to car BT, but all the additional features are really handy too (ie. Location saving when leaving your car). Also, the complete lack of ads is VERY much appreciated! Keep up the good work, Author!

Not sure if it is working or not I've used this on a different phone, but currently am on a Moto G on Android 4.4.4 and I can't really detect that it is working. In particular, the TTS voice doesn't seem to read out notifications anymore, and I don't see an icon in the top bar which I'm sure I used to do. I suspect that the service is starting / stopping a lot, as I often see popup notifications telling me that the service has started, which I think I'd only expect to normally see when I first boot the phone. If I can help to debug these issues somehow, I'd be grateful to help! Edit - this could just be me not setting the Apps for Accessibility up properly!
