Bluetooth, S Voice, Bluetooth head unit issues...
I'm hoping I can get some answers here about this. I have a Kenwood bluetooth head unit in my truck. I like to use S Voice to text, play music and other stuff without touching the phone while driving.
My issue is if Bluetooth is on and if I say Hi Galaxy then say Play Music it acts if it doesn't hear me. If I turn off bluetooth connection between the Note 3 and head unit then say Hi Galaxy then play music it hears me fine and plays music.
I was thinking maybe the mic pickup wasn't cranked up enough to hear me on the head unit. On my head unit I have a setting for Mic Gain. Is this suppose to increase sensitivity for the mic to hear more clearly? It was set to 0 but I cranked it up to +8 and then tried it again with no result.
On the sound bars, below the microphone button on the S Voice, if sound is picked up it will move up. It never moved so it's not hearing me. Now if I banged on the top of my dash with my fist the sound bars move and shows it is picking up sound but it has to be a loud bang to a point I feel like I'm gonna cracked my dash if I keep on doing that.
I can't tell if the issue is my head unit or the phone itself. Bluetooth volume is cranked to the max on the phone.
Do bluetooth head units have built in microphones? I would think they do otherwise it would be a pointless head unit and pointless to have call button functions on the head unit.
Anybody have suggestions?
