Thumbs down [Q] Looking for auto Bluetooth app

I am trying to find an app that will recognize when I am in proximity to a Bluetooth host and will automatically enable Bluetooth on my phone. I've seen several apps in the play store but I don't know if any if them will do what I want. I'd like my phone to turn on Bluetooth when I get in the car and turn it off when I get out of the car. (It would be nice if it would play Pandora too but I am not completely lazy!)

LG G2 (sold)
Samsung Galaxy Nexus (for sale on swappa)
Motorola Bionic (sold)
Motorola Droid (on display)
Android developers make my phones great. Thank you all.

You should look into NFC tags. You could, for example, have one in a car mount for your phone, with an NFC app set to turn on Bluetooth and Pandora when the phone detects that tag.

I took your advice a bought a few tags and installed an app. It works great, better than I expected. Thanks for the suggestion!
