Pogo desktop dock for the verizon phone (i151)

This is a discussion on Pogo desktop dock for the verizon phone (i151) within the Galaxy Nexus Accessories forums, part of the Galaxy Nexus Forum category; Thanks. I looked into the tags, I just didn't know they can be used to control the phone. This can be useful and fun!...

    For the Tasker part, I maintain a global variable %WHEREAMI. I set it to values such as AtWork or AtHome depending on my location. When I tap the tag, NFC Task Launcher launches a Tasker task that executes an if-then check on %WHEREAMI. If %WHEREAMI = AtWork, then it turns on the GPS, starts Car Home Ultra, and sends a text to my wife telling her I am on my way home. If %WHEREAMI = AtHome, then it turns GPS on, WiFi off, and starts Car Home Ultra.

    I don't use a tag for when I arrive home. For that, I just use a Tasker task that figures out that I am near home (within about 1/2 mile, anyway), turns on WiFi, and sets a 5 minute delay after which it turns the GPS off.

    Edit to add: Note that Tasker by itself cannot turn GPS on or off. It links to an app called Secure Settings, which allows for more control options.

    Between NFC tags and Tasker, you can make your GNex do a lot! There are many ways to automate your GNex, but you can run into conflicts since you are using multiple apps for different actions. Having everything centralized with Tasker lets you maintain a large variable list that can link specific conditions to actions. I maintain variables such as %LAST_TAG, %STARTTIME and %STOPTIME which can then be used in different combinations.

    I just ordered RFI tags, Tasker and RF Task Launcher to see how much trouble I can get into.
