Default YouTube arrow in top bar???

Whenever I'm connected via Bluetooth, there is a blue arrow with what looks like sideways WiFi symbol. Its blue until I toggle it and it turns grey. Only shows up with Bluetooth though. Anyone know what it does?

I toggle it on and off and it doesn't seem to change anything. More like a general question rather than a Note question, but since I use the Note I felt obligated to put it here.

Thanks!

I believe it shows you when the Bluetooth radio is toggled on in the device settings menu.
Even though you aren't using bluetooth, the icon will show the radio being on.

Try turning off bluetooth in settings, and see if it goes off. But remember there is a delay, and it may even take a reboot to turn everything off.

Roms other than stock will possibly alter it's function as well...g

Edit :
I seldom if ever, use bluetooth, so my knowledge on the icon is a bit foggy.
You could also check the users manual for more info on how it functions ....g

I searched for it on Google and couldn't find anything. I'm running a JB ROM, and it only shows when I have Bluetooth on AND connected. Toggling it seems to do nothing at all. If nothing is connected to BT, the icon isn't there anymore.

I had a strange symbol up there last week. Try this, download airpush detector from the market and run it. If it finds an app, remove it. The bluetooth part doesn't make sense to me. Give this a shot, if it's nothing just remove the app.
