    I'm fairly new to Tasker and have several basic tasks/profiles set up. I keep running into issues with my BT setup though and I'm getting frustrated as I can't figure out what the problem is. Here's my setup:

    I have my BT always on with the exception of it being turned off when connected to my Home WiFi. This doesn't seem to be an issue. But I am having trouble with Pandora enabling/disabling when my car BT is connected.

    If HandsFreeLink BT is Connected then run Pandora task.

    Pandora Task:
    1. Send Intent:
    Action com.maxmpz.audioplayer.API_COMMAND
    Extra cmd:100 (this stops and closes my Poweramp player that automatically plays when BT or Headphones are detected)
    2. Wait 5 seconds
    3. Launch Pandora App
    4. Go Home

    Pandora Exit Task:
    1. Kill App
    App Pandora Use Root Off
    2. Send Intent
    Action com.pandroa.android.Main
    Extra cmd:18
    (I have both tasks set up because the Kill App feature didn't seem to turn off Pandora)

    This doesn't work all the time and I'm not sure why. I am thinking it could be something to do with the way Tasker validates the properties, like the interval times, but I don't know. I notice that if I get out of my car Tasker will go through the motions of exiting out of Pandora as expected. But if I get back into my car 15 minutes later, it doesn't run the task even if Tasker says the profile is enabled...

    Sorry if this is confusing. If I can clarify on anything please let me know. I appreciate any advice. Thank you!

    TL;DR: BT + Pandora task is inconsistent. Help. Thank you.

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
Adding Join (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.join) to the mix will even allow you to trigger tasks from another Android device or PC! ☑ Scenes
Design your own UI and use it to display any info you want or trigger any task! ☑ App Creation
Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker! Check out a list of plugins https://tasker.joaoapps.com/pluginlist.html. You can also call most of the Web APIs from Tasker with the powerful HTTP Auth and HTTP Request actions!
