Bose Soundlink Color II - DISABLE AUTO TURN ON FEATURE (BLE)
While I love my Bose Soundlink Color II for quality listening around the house, there is a feature that I can no longer accept!!! It uses BLE to detect when a previously paired device is turned on, and it turns on and pairs to the device without asking for any input from me. I'm sure your engineers had the best intentions, but without the ability to turn this feature off, this speaker is becoming a real black hole.
When getting ready for a Zoom meeting, the speaker magically turns on, and completely ruins my setup.... Where is the speaker? I don't know, where did we leave it? Is it in the bedroom? Is it in the basement? I don't know, but it's turned on and making it impossible to configure my speakers and microphones on my computer!!!
Mowing the lawn? Have another device in my ear, listening to music there. In the back corner of the yard where the bluetooth doesn't detect is fine... But then I walk closer to the house, and it pairs. This disconnects my earbuds, or results in a "connected to.... blah blah blah". Then I walk further away in the yard, it disconnects... "disconnected from, blah, blah, blah".....
The only option for us is to turn off bluetooth in my laptop so that doesn't connect every time. Or de-pair the device EVERY SINGLE TIME. And that is a pain in the butt! It's not right!
So i downloaded the latest firmware and I searched and searched. I'm not the only one who does NOT like this feature. There are users complaining from 2018 about this... So where is the option to turn it off? Where can I turn off the Bose Soundlink Color II "Auto Turn On when Detecting Device Turned On" feature (BLE)???? Please tell me there is a hidden setting to turn this off. I found a way to turn off Auto Shut Off... that is NOT what I'm asking for. Please give me the ability to turn off the Auto Turn ON function.
