audio - Mute the external microphone when a headphone is plugged in?

    I'm running Gingerbread on my Samsung Galaxy S II. I dock it on my dash in my car and plug a 3.5mm cord from the phone to my stereo aux input.

    I often listen to music from my phone through my car stereo, but when a call comes in and I answer it, there is terrible feedback on the other end because the caller hears both my speakers and the audio from the phone.

    Is there anything I can do about this other than to switch to a traditional headset?

    nexus one - Disable Phone's Built-in Microphone?
  • Android Eve

    I just conducted a tiny experiment with the original headset that comes with Nexus One: I plugged it into the phone, expecting the phone built-in microphones to be switched off, replaced by the microphone on the headset.

    I was disappointed to see that the voice input behavior of the system didn't change: The phone seems to continue picking up sound from the built-in microphone(s).

    So, I thoroughly covered the headset's microphone with tape and tried again...

    Still, no change. The Nexus One's built-in microphone are fully enabled.

    This is disappointing because I really need to disable the Nexus One's built-in mics, so that I can use a different microphone instead.

    Is there a way to accomplish that?
