    I got this app and it looks pretty cool but I mean they don't really give you an explanation on how to use it and I am all lost and confused.

    Can anyone recomend any good suggestions to get started? Any place where I can get a tutorial?

    I guess my main questions are how do I set up a default setting and how can I have bluetooth set to activate only when in a car?

    I have settings Profile (I dont know what Full is). To start you click on Profiles, then click on the menu on the phone....add a new profile...
    I have profiles for things such as every night the phone goes into airplane mode at a certain time, and goes out of it at a certain time in the morning.
    After naming the profile you click on "rules" . Click on "conditions". A condition would be "what time" " what place" ...basically which circumstance. Then click on Action....this means the action the phone will take at a certain time or place.....such as at 11pm the phone will go into airplane mode....

    hope this helps a little....also...i dont have Bluetooth so dont know about that...its probably in the conditions...

    To make a profile the default setting, click and hold on one of the profiles you created and set it to default.

    I don't think it's possible for you to automatically activate bluetooth when in a car. There's no way for setting profiles to know that you're in a car unless it's being docked or a bluetooth connection is made.

    For my phone I also put the widget on my homescreen for manual profile switching.

    Ok so this is what I don't like and don't get. I think most are using this to make things easier and save on battery.

    But If this thing won't know when to connect to my Bluetooth in a car and I need to leave GPS on so it knows my location for other settings that is two resourse hogs right there going all the time.

    Ok guys what am I doing wrong?

    1) I setup 3 profiles, default, home, work.

    2) I set up 2 locations with a 2 mile radius for home & work.

    3) I set 2 rules that the location at home would match a home profile, and that my location at work would match my work profile.

    So today I go out (well outside of my 2 mile radius) and none of my settings change. My default has WiFi turned off but it stayed on the entire time...

    I think you would need to make default happen when not home or at work

    I've read complaints about the location based service. It seems like it's not very accurate. Then again, none of the location based profile apps I used are very functional. This includes the popular app Locale.

    Honestly I don't think there's an app out there for any phone that automatically turn on your bluetooth or GPS when you're in your car. In order for any event to occur, there's needs to be a trigger. It needs some form of input in order to differentiate between you being in a car,building or just being outside. Another words, there needs to a unique property about being in a car that would help trigger a profile switch. I can't think of any.

    Thanks Dmtalon. I set up new profiles last night away from home and it worked when I came back. I think that might be the trick.

    If you have a home wifi, you can set location using that instead of cell towers.

    I also got the app Auto Wifi Toggle from the Market, which actually automatically turns on your wifi when you're within range and turns it off automatically when you are out of range. So when you're home, you're automatically connected to wifi, you don't have to remember to turn wifi on/off.

    Here are my rules:

    Activate HOME (key trait for this profile is Unlock Pattern set to OFF)
    -Location - At Home Wifi
    -Time period: 6am to 12am Every Day

    Activate SLEEP (Key profile trait: Unlock Pattern: OFF)
    -Location - At Home Wifi
    -Time Period - 12am to 6am Every Day

    Activate WORK (Key profile trait: Unlock Pattern: ON)
    -Location - Connected to my work BT headset
    -Location - At my Work Cells
    -Time Period - 830am to 530pm M-F

    Activate OUTSIDE LOCK/DEFAULT (Key profile trait: Unlock Pattern: ON)
    -Location - Not at Home Wifi
    -Battery - Discharging

    Activate CAR w/BT (Key profile trait: Unlock Pattern: OFF)
    -Location - Not at Home Wifi
    -Location - Not at Work Cells
    -Battery - Plugged into any charger
    -(I don't have Car BT, but if you do, you should add BT connected to CAR BT)

    Activate MEETING (Key profile trait: Unlock Pattern: OFF; Silent Mode: Checked)
    -Calendar with '*' (haven't tested yet!)
    -Location - At Work Cells

    This is my 2nd day with the app. I'm sure I can clean up some of the above once I learn the app a little better.
