Using your Karoo as a music remote with iPhone

Post by BarMonheimer »

Has anyone found a way to use your Karoo2 as a remote for playing music through your iPhone using its Bluetooth connection.

I am aware I could play Spotify through the Karoo with a sim card but not interested in draining the battery 🔋

Why not just use Spotify on the Karoo, but only as a remote, not for actual playback? And if you don't fancy a sim just hotspot from phone. Just make sure in the settings that you're not only showing local network devices...
The alternative/universal/offline solution would be to install some software (no clue which, but should surely exist) on the Karoo which makes it spoof a BT HID/keyboard, pair with the phone and make it send the appropriate commands. But seems overly complicated (and certainly less powerful) if Spotify is what you're using anyways.
