Good morning folks,

I have been using this tool to quickly configure my Pi2 as a bluetooth audio link to my camper van, it works brilliantly.

My question is regarding changing the class of the bluetooth device so it can receive phone call audio too like a normal car hands free kit.

I will admit I am not 100% familiar with all the terminology involved so will apologise in advance.

If I change the class value in /etc/bluetooth/main.conf and reboot I get a different class listed in the bluetoothctl tool output. To get the class I used this tool https://www.ampedrftech.com/cod.htm

When I make the change I think the system is correcting the Class to be Rendering (Speaker) and Capturing (Microphone) Device but I do not see the phone audio option on my phone (See screenshot).



# Default adapter name
# Defaults to 'BlueZ X.YZ'
#Name = BlueZ

# Default device class. Only the major and minor device class bits are
Name = Orion Audio Link
# considered. Defaults to '0x000000'.
#Class = 0x000100
Class = 0x600420

This is the output from bluetoothctl
