Good day Dirk,


I never searched for some extra information about similar problematic, but when you have BT device where you may listen music from phone, isn't also on this device possible to listen TTS output from Locus? I can't imagine what I should do on Locus side, because I think it should already work independent on application.

Hi Menion,


I'm not the biggest expert on this, but I believe each audio application, if capable, has settings in order to route the audio output to the desired type of device. Also Locus has that. But the setting "Bluetooth" is missing besides music/media and notifications.

Hello Dirk,


hmm you are absolutely correct. I was searching little bit and seems to be quite complicated. I hoped it may be done in some automatic way ...


Hmm for now, seem it is possible to use some alternative like this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.AngelOfMors.BTHeadSet&hl=en , that seems to be able to forward audio to bluetooth headset (never tried it).

Hello Menion, thanks for your hint. Using BTHeadset my bluetooth headset is working now together with OSMAND+ which has "like phone call" as a third audio output option (music and notifications are the other options there). Unfortunately the headset still does not work with Locus Pro. It would be nice to get that third option added in Locus as well or find another way to get it working. Maybe there is another way that for instance could route also the radio output to bluetooth. Anyway, many thanks to you!

Good day Menion,

I finally found the app "Blue Mono Sound" which routes the voice output also successfully when using Locus. So Locus talks to me now through my headset, which is good because Locus is by far better than the other app I was talking about.

Regards, Dirk
