The Voyager Bluetooth functionalities seems to receive developer's focus now.
On MoDaCo, "MrMagoo" posted about a tool he developed which basically switches Bluetooth on as soon as you receive a call and switches it off right after you end the call. This should/might helps to save battery if you don't have Bluetooth running all the time:

Features:

  1. Absolutely Free
  2. Incoming call switches on Bluetooth. (takes a couple of seconds but IS quick enough to enable the headset to answer the call)
  3. Call disconnection turns off Bluetooth.
  4. No settings/help/comeback - if it works it works - if it doesn't I will attempt to help those people who give decent feedback.
  5. The only way to stop this app is to kill it! (I haven't worked out how i am going to interact with it yet).
  6. The only indications that it is running are a) it shows up in SP Task Manager Process List ( as BLautoBT.exe ) AND b) Bluetooth turns on for a call and then off again.

Future Features might includes:

  1. Settings to run a user chosen app on certain events such as incoming call, disconnected, on hold etc.
  2. Some way of quitting the app.
  3. Some way of pausing the app.
  4. Ability to swap to headset midway through a call.
  5. Maybe more maybe less - depends how bored i get learning C++

To download this free Beta you have to be a registered MoDaCo member.
I haven't tried it by now but the concept seems to be interesting!

Cheers ~ Arne
