Can I use this to control volume and tracks, when my phone is sending sound through Bluetooth? I have a Bluetooth headseat my helmet, but no way of controlling the volume/tracks while driving.
This controller is designed to be used when your phone is connected using the headphone jack or other wired option only. Most phones will not allow the dual Bluetooth connection, especially when one is streaming and the other is control.
how do you turn it on and off? how do you pair it with your phone? does it turn off automatically? do I have to use wired headset, can I use bluetooth headset?
It turns on and off with the push of a button or automatically after 5 minutes of no audio. It pairs with your phone like any standard device, and instructions are included. You have to connect it to a wired output source, either a headset or motorcycle speaker system.
I think this may work, what I want to do is, have my phone in my jacket, with wired headphones under my helmet. I would like a solution to control volume tracks, etc similar to the controls on the steering wheel of most newer cars. Will this do that task via bluetooth? No extra wires to connect to the phone?
Yes, this is what you are looking for. No wires, completely battery operated (about 2 years battery life) and will control the volume and tracks on your phone, wirelessly, via Bluetooth.
