AutoTether for Automatica

AutoTether for Automatica


AutoTether automates the task of starting the tethering when you get in your car and stopping it when you leave the car.

AutoTether has been designed as a companion app for the Automatica car USB device, to keep it synced while you're driving around.

AutoTether uses simple Bluetooth detection to make your smartphone location aware. It provides an alternative to NFC leveraging the Bluetooth availability for location awareness and lets your Android device turn tethering on automatically when in proximity of another paired device.

For example: pair your car bluetooth system with your Android smartphone and enable it in AutoTether. Every time you'll get in your car your Android smartphone will immediately enable tethering and will provide WiFi connectivity to all devices in your car.

Please note: carriers could charge extra fees when using tethering.

Mostly works besides 2 issues.... It turn's on hotspot 100% of the time when I connect a BT device. 50% of the time when I disconnect, it will not re-enable the wifi and I must manually enable wifi. Also, I have selected multiple BT devices and if I have more than one device connected at the same time, tethering is disabled when I disconnect only one of them. It should remain in hotspot mode until ALL of the selected devices are disconnected, not just one. It should only disable hotspot when there are NO selected devices connected to my phone. Please fix those.

So far, Im impressed. I've been trying to find some easy app .... to get tethering active when connected to my car's BT. Nothing easy. Then found this app! So far, so good! 12/16/13. Updated to 4.3 and now the app does not function properly unless on a home screen. Hopefully an updated is pending?????

works, sort of.... when the screen is active it turns on the hotspot every time! but if the screen is off, like it will be every time it will be used it does nothing :( if i have to reach for the phone to turn the screen on i may as well hit the tethering widget too right?
