Connect phone to vehicle.

Added by Nikos Parafestas about 3 years ago

I am trying to find a way to connect my phone to my car system. I do not need all the features of android auto, I just want to answer phone calls using the cars build in speakers and mic.
Is there a way?

As far as I know Replicant shouldn't support Bluetooth natively, but I have found that some devices do as described here: https://redmine.replicant.us/issues/1925

Are you able to use Bluetooth with other devices like heat sets? If so, doesn't it work with your car? What phone are you using with Replicant?

I've seen some people using a proprietary driver to use Bluetooth with Replicant, although I don't know how that could be done.

My self, I'm using Replicant because I want to use as much free software as I can while avoiding proprietary software as much as I can in the other hand, so I would look for ways to avoid using a proprietary driver to use Bluetooth, like using a car stand for my phone and a plug if my car has a aux plug in.
