[Q] trusted bluetooth dongle
I would prefer that Motorola gave an option to permit touchless control to work with passwords - but that is not the case
I decided to explore finding a Bluetooth dongle I could carry as a trusted Bluetooth device and found http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
on amazon. While this works, there is a gotcha. What I am looking for is the dongle to keep the moto x unlocked while in my possession. When I am in my vehicle - I want the moto x to pair with the vehicle bluetooth.... The trouble is that the dongle I found presents itself to the phone as a headset, the same device type as the vehicle and I believe that the phone can only use one headset at a time. I could explore prioritizing the vehicle as higher than the dongle - but the dongle acts as an alarm and beeps if it loses connection with the phone....
soooo - does anyone know of a bluetooth dongle that is priced at throw-away prices that I can use as a trusted BT that I can carry - while permitting me to ALSO use the BT in my vehicle? This has to pass the "wife" test and just work without doing anything as it is for her phone.
The BETTER solution would be for Motorola to permit touchless to be configured to work while a phone is locked. I do not understand the security issues with enabling this functionality -- and even if there is to permit a user to make a decision. Afterall the touchless control is supposed to only respond to the owner - and while it is not perfect, it is not so bad. Come on Motorola - give us this option.
