Anyone got a solution for automatic turn on wifi tethering? can't seem to get it to work. my phone can't connect to the tablet via bluetooth to use as trigger for "automate" to start wifi tether. Phone pairs no problem and it works via "tablet talk" app and syncs there, no problem. but in the bluetooth menu when i press on the tablet it says connected for a split second then seems disconnected again. "Automate" does not register it as connected to the tablet via bt either. Also the functions for turn on tether in these automation apps seems to be broken in newer android versions?

I never managed to do this without breaking a clip. If you found a way it would be great to share.

Thread resurrection!!

My 130i purchased last week came with a Nexus 7 mounted in an OEM housing on the dash, like the ones in this thread. It’s been reset from the previous owner so I’ll need to go through the install process again. Does anyone have the original picture used for the template? The link doesn’t work anymore and it’s needed to start the config and I can’t find one anywhere unfortunately.
