[Q] A bluetooth work-around needed?

Hello everyone,

I have a specific problem with a bluetooth device and with my limited knowledge I haven't worked out how to fix it, so I am asking for your help. I will explain it best I can...

I have a third-party bluetooth stereo in my car that has a built in mic for voice calls. However, the microphone is of terrible quality and as it's in the stereo unit it's quite far from me when I'm driving meaning it is almost useless to use for voice calls. Because of this I purchased a seperate good quality bluetooth speaker/mic that fits on to the car's sun visor. The problem I have is when I get in to my car my phone connects to the stereo only and not the small speaker. I want my phone to connect to the stereo via b/t so I can play my music through it, which is great, but not for voice calls. I see in the b/t options on my phone (HTC One) that you can check/uncheck boxes for the type of connections, in this case 'Phone Audio' and 'Media Audio'. If I just have the Media Audio setting checked, the phone fails to connect to the stereo at all, not even for music, so in order for it to automatically connect to the stereo I need the Phone Audio option enabled too, causing it to then not connect to the seperate device, thus diverting all calls through the stereo, which is really inconvenient. There are no options within the stereo that isolates these individual settings.

Are there any apps or methods you can advise me on that will allow my phone to connect to the stereo automatically but with voice disabled? I have looked in to Tasker but I am not skilled enough to work out how to set it up, so if this is the best option can somebody talk me through this please?

I appreciate the help on this, and I hope I've explained it adequately.

Simon
