Hi to All,

This is my first thread on the site. Forgive me if I do anything wrong.

Introduction
I have been using the auto answer feature on my touch hd and have found it to be very useful especially when driving. However, this feature is not easily accessible when you want to toggle between on and off. I decided to come up with this application (myCar Profile) and I would like to share it with you.

This application allows auto answer for incoming calls and automatically turns speakerphone on without pressing any buttons on windows mobile professional devices. I am not trying to replace the default feature but simply making it easier to access and use the feature. I have also made it possible to use auto answer with or without a headset.

The application is not code signed therefore you have to grant access if your device is appication locked.

Tips
1) The application should be running to enable the features to work.
2) The talk after (0-30) seconds should the less than the value set for call forwading otherwise your incoming calls will go to voicemail.
3) Assign a hardware button to the application to allow easy access. (Personally I use AE Button Plus to get more button options, I dont know if there are free alternatives)
4) On exiting the program your phone settings will be retained.



FAQ
Q - I have installed myCar Profile but the app does not answer incoming calls
A - Ensure talk after (0-30) seconds is less than the value set for call forwading otherwise your incoming calls will go to voicemail. Also some lock screen software and call intercepting software may be interfering with myCar Profile. Add the app to the exclusion list or change appropriate settings such as [Don't use KeyBoard Hook = OFF in S2U2.] You may also disable offending software temporarily.

Update - 24-01-2010
MyCar Profile Version 0.6 - [Updated app to remove notification on soft key. Added new menu MINIMIZE ON LAUNCH - this menu enables the application to be minimized automatically on start up. Added new menu SAVE STATUS ON EXIT - this menu enables the application to save talk after seconds, speakerphone & auto answer status (i.e. either ON or OFF). Once saved the status will be loaded on next start up.]

Donations: I created this app for anyone who needs it free of charge. However, if you appreciate my work and would like to buy me a beer click Here. Continue to use the app freely without any obligations.

Previous Versions:
MyCar Profile Version 0.5 - [Updated app to include icon & bubble notification. Added a new menu SHOW NOTIFICATION]
MyCar Profile Version 0.4 - [Updated app to increase compatibility with other software. Added a new menu ENHANCED SPEAKERPHONE]
MyCar Profile Version 0.3 - [Updated app to allow automatic bluetooth headset detection.
MyCar Profile Version 0.2 - [Updated app to allow audio routing to bluetooth headset.]
MyCar Profile Version 0.1

Thank you for trying the app. At the moment I haven't found a way to detect bluetooth headset state.

Works as described on my Fuze w/updated stock ROM. Tried;
- auto-answer on/speakerphone on
- auto-answer on/speakerphone off
- auto-answer off/speakerphone on
- auto-answer on/speakerphone off/BT headset active
and every scenario worked as expected. Also released the process and RAM after closing :).

Thanks,

JIM

Update: myCar Profile Version 0.3

Hi All,

As promised I have updated the app again to allow for automatic detection of bluetooth headsets. First post has been updated with new screenshots explaining how the app is intended to work or be used. For those having problems try latest version and report back on this thread. It would be nice if you also report which devices you are having problems or which devices the app is working perfect.

Enjoy

problem with iGO8 on

the new version works great in my polaris, wm 6.1 official rom! it's compatible with s2u2 which i'm happy about and works even if the phone is at a sleep mode. however, when my iGO8 is on, the speaker on does not work (the auto answer works though). i hope you can find a fix for this. most of the time, i use my gps while driving and i get calls quite often. it would be perfect if the speaker on works too.

thanks a lot for this great app!

one suggestion too. if you can make an icon for your app and place it on the taskbar at the top (together with the battery, signal strength, etc.) so that it tells us that it is on and running. perhaps clicking on that icon can also open it to change the setting, or quit the app.

V0.3: speakerphone still doesn't work. :(

Its working on my device and other people's devices. I am supprised that it doesn't work for you. Anyway, try the following:
1) Exit the app if its running.
2) Launch the app - don't press any buttons after after app started.
3) make a call to your phone and see if speakerphone works.

Which device is is the speakerphone failing and under what settings.

Hope this helps

Does not work (either Spearkerphone or AutoAnswer) on HTC Cruise with custom 6.1 ROM.

It does not autoanswer: S2U2 simply ignores MyCarProfile settings and keeps ringing until I press answer key.

Speakerphone doesn't work regardless autoanswer setting.

i did steps 1-3 but the speakerphone still doesn't work.

i'm using HTC Touch Viva (Opal) with WM6.5 Build 23506 (COM5).

Do you have any other software using the speakerphone when you run run the app? I wish I could simulate the problem then I would be able to help.

Hi All,

If anyone has the same device(s) as our colleagues who are having problems can you be of assistance or can you let us know your experience with the app so that we may be able to help others or revisit the code.

Thanks,

Kuda

I have just installed S2U2 on my Touch HD to test. At first it did not work as you have reported. In order for it to work I set the following setting in S2U2 Settings:

Don't use KeyBoard Hook = OFF

This is because myCar Profile uses keyboard hook.
