Nokia N8, Music Player - FM transmitting.

Hi hi, I´m using the FM transmitting option from the music player a lot.

 

But to turn this option on I have to:

1. Open the music player

2. Choose play via Radio

3.  Than the phone opens the FM transmit window

4.  Than you have to put FM transmit to: ON

 

Wy isn't it enough to open music player, choose play via Radio, and the FM transmitter turns automatically on ( on the frequency that you have already chosen anyway).

 

I think this is rather simple, but this extra step to turn on the FM transmitter is  unnecessary !

 

What does mr Nokia say about this ?

 

Regards.

Re: Nokia N8, Music Player - FM transmitting.

The FM transmitter uses extra power from the device's battery, so that's why it's not switched on automatically.

 

I'm sure if we would have set it to work automatically, people would have been asking why it happens automatically, and if it wouldn't have been more customer friendly to not have it activated unless it's being asked.

Re: Nokia N8, Music Player - FM transmitting.

Ok, but when you have already choosen Play via Radio, you are going to turn your FM transmitter on anyway ! ! !

I dont think you are understanding me:

 

I´m opening Music player, option - play via radio - than you have to choose FM transmitter to ON.  Instead of by choosing Play via radion and the FM is ON automatically (my suggestion).

Hi kingblue,

 

The complaint is about the extra step needed to activate the radio. The requested behavior for the radio is like for the bluetooth hotkey: If it is off, then you want to turn it on. If it is on, then you want to turn it off.

 

Keep It Simple :smileywink:

 

Best regards,

Hans
