I would use Tasker for that, it really is a great app.

The external audio jack feature is still broken in Gingerbread (JVK). The built-in speaker sound mutes but sound doesn't get switched to the USB output. So don't upgrade if you want to keep this feature. Now I have to downgrade, grr.

I updated the app in post #1 with a version that has separate settings for home and car docks. If the phone is docked then clicking on the relevant checkbox will turn the external output on and off straight away.

Default can't open APK

Hi, the app you created is in .zip format I assume I would have to change it to .apk to launch it on my Galaxy S. But that does not seem to work. I think there is something obvious I am missing here. Please help. Thanks.

Default Gingerbread version soon?

Hi TheBeano, is there any plan for making a gingerbread version soon?
I also had to downgrade my phone to use the dock.

Samsung has to fix it in the kernel, hopefully they will test it with all their accessories before they release it.

I am not sure which ROM you are using and which kernel you have installed, but ever since I installed an Onix kernel my car dock audio output works for phone calls as well. I can now hear the phone call audio through my car stereo and speak into the air. I have been able to do this with both Onix 2.0.3 and 2.0.4.
