    OK sorry, maybe a little click batey

    Let me explain. I LOVE tasker, I have everything from Lost phone lock down, emergency location texts if my family don't know where I am. (I'm a tree surgeon and a motorbiker so risks are high) Making sure the ringer volume is either on full or silent and my all time pride and joy automated system that connects my phone to my motorbike using an autocom with Bluetooth adapter. This means I can make calls and listen to music while riding my motorbike and I have a little next/back pause/play button that connect to the phone so I can change the track and all that jazz.

    My question is, When I have a call it's all automated by the Autocom with is a stand alone unit not to do with androids, but the problem is, if I need to hang up, for example if its a cold call or anything, I need to get off my bike and get my phone out and cancel it there. Is there a way of canceling the call from m y little Bluetooth track switcher?

    I've tried to do an
    1.IF % VOLC EQ 0
    2. End call
    3. Beep 8000, 1000

    with the state BT CONNECTED *Name here*

    When I lower the volume it does nothing but when I play it in tasker it does what it's supposed to do. Also the Green line comes up showing that %VOLC is Equal to 0 but still nothing happens.

    Anyone got any ideas? I tried using Autoimput but can't figure that out.

  2. I do not have the devices you reference.

    Exactly what is it that you do to make a call and cancel a call?

    I have this and I would like to be able to cancel a call when it's connected to my phone. Like clicking the volume button twice or holding the button or something like that.
  4. The question is how do you currently connect and disconnect your phone?

    When you currently get a call and it is over ... how is the connection broken? Do you always rely on the other party to break the connection?

    If you were to use a service that connected to your phone and you just turned off the connection between the two but left the connection from them to the other party active ... who would pay for the call?

    My phone is connected to the autocom via Bluetooth (think of it as a hands free device like in a car just You can touch it as you are riding a motorbike) and also a remote (I posted a link in last thread) that has a volume +/- next, back and pause/play. At the moment the autocom answers call for me as it's designed for that and tells me when it is doing so but thee is no way for me to cancel or reject a call without getting off my bike and using my phone. Is it possible to use the remote and take to do this? Sorry for spelling mistakes if any. Phones being a dick.
  6. I don't know of a way to do what you want unless the manufacturer provided an interface where you could control it externally. Do you have any documentation?

    The issue is that you could disconnect between your phone and it but the connection between it and the caller would still be active until they disconnected.
