Default App to play media through mono bluetooth headset?

I see another post on this but it's a little outdated so I'm hoping there has been a recent development.

Looking for a way to transmit audio from media (music, movies, audiobooks...not phone calls) to my standard bluetooth wireless device, which is not A2DP.

This worked perfectly with no tweaks on my enV Touch so clearly it isn't a hardware issue, which by extension means there should be a software workaround, possibly in the form of a downloadable App. Anything that would work is cool though...registry edits, whatever, I just desperately want to listen to audiobooks at work without buying a new headset!

Thanks in advance for reading/replying,

I'm gonna pay attention to this thread. This is exactly why I came here today. I want to listen to streaming radio on my droid via my bluetooth headset.

Thanks!

See this thread: How to listen to music with a bluetooth headset?

NOT an old thread. Very much on going.

I too am looking for this, but not for music, although that would be cool, but for navigation. On my Touch Pro I had a bluetooth audio program that worked great! It's hard to hear the directions when even just having a conversation, nevermind blasting the stereo! LOL!

I'm gonna check out the above mentioned thread and hope there's something there! thanks!

I have spent the better part of today looking for a solution to this issue.

I am leaving June 15th for a 10,000 mile motorcycle trip and my Cardo Scala Rider in-helmet bluetooth headset does not support A2DP/stereo audio. I want to be able to listen to music (what the system was designed for), but can't using my Motorola Droid. This is VERY frustrating, being so close but yet so far from a solution.

Browsing Android Marketplace, I found an app called "Sound Route Switcher"
The description seems to say it does exactly what I want to do, but after reading the reviews, seemes to be a fake program or at least doesn't work for anyone.

I would willingly pay someone to develop an app to route media audio to a mono bluetooth device.

PS: the ** or *** or "pause" deal didnt work for me on the Motorola Droid.

Try this app "Super BT Mono", not working on every phone currently.

Default Super Mono Froyo / HTC Desire HD /Samsung Wep490

I downloaded app named "Super Mono Froyo" free trial first (works only 4 days if I remember correctly) it worked for my phone (HTC Desire HD) and the bluetooth (Samsung Wep490). So I bought the Full version. Works like a charm

This was a huge deal for me because my phone doesn't let me answer the phone with headphones connected :-( After a lot of search I found BT Super Mono and it didn't work, and then I found testinband.apk. Here is a link to the issue and upload: Issue 7906 - android - Audio routing to mono bluetooth headsets - Project Hosting on Google Code
My phone is rooted and only has 1.6 so it might or might not work for you. It doesn't sound great, but it sound good enough.

Would something like this work?

Sony Ericsson MW600 Bluetooth Headset

and the PowerAmp app can play audio through bluetooth connection.

Though I can't swear on this as I'm yet to receive the BT Headset I've ordered...

It worked as long as I was in gingerbread but hangs after I upgraded to ICS. My phone is a Galaxy S2. Anyone has a solution?

Default Fail

I have a Verizon Driod X.None of the Media to Mono BT apps in the market work (even ones that worked on previous firmware versions of my phone).Either Google, Verizon, Motorola or all of them are in bed with the BT adapter manufacturers. They are trying to force you to buy the more expensive A2DP devices. Its not that they are too lazy to impliment this feature.. They have intentionaly disabled it for their own finacial benifit.
