    Now this is odd, I was driving home from work tonight with my bluetooth headset on like a careful driver does. My dashboard mounted G1 happly telling me which direction to turn via the wonders of AndNav2 and the not so charming robotic voice. All of a sudden a call comes in, I click my headset and start talking to the person on the other end of the call when a third party joins in the conversation.

    Who else could it be, but that damn gnarly robot telling me what direction to turn. Loud as loud could be in my ear, I wouldnt mind but that damn infernal robot talked over the other person. How rude!

    I didnt think audio over bluetooth was possible yet?

    Im using a stock G1, not rooted.

    sounds like a software flaw on Andnav that needs to be figured out and exploited for all us to use.....

    You need GPS to find your way home from work?

    You do if you live in WASH DC with street and bridge closings ... not even including road repairs ...

    Hi,

    I asked the same question regarding audio.

    I had the music player going and received a call (Bluetooth headset connected). When the call was over, the music was audible through the Bluetooth connection (just for a fraction of a second) before is switched back to the speaker "out."

    It seems that the phone *can* actually output non-phonecall audio via Bluetooth.

    I'm not a programmer, but it would be great if there was a "patch bay" program to send G1 audio to a Bluetooth headset.

    When I posted the question earlier, I was directed to a discussion on stereo information via Bluetooth.

    just had a quick browse in the Android SDK and came across ROUTE_BLUETOOTH in AudioSystem.java

    I havent got time to look in to it this week, got a shed load of c++ development to finish and 2 psychology essays to write :(

    Seems like BT audio is / will be available
