Plan Your Routes For Future Meetings With This Tasker Profile

Tasker’s quite the powerful little app, enabling such things as taking control of your CPU speeds and Texty notifications. Now XDA forum member and experienced Tasker tutorial writer brandall has put together a very useful guide aimed at displaying the route information and travel time required for your future meetings five minutes prior to departure.

In the words of the author:

Profile Aim

Tasker reads your calendar creating a home screen widget via Minimalistic Text. Reacting to a future ‘meeting’ entry, it queries Google to find out the route information and journey time. Using the journey time information and meeting start time, it calculates what time you will have to leave and loads Sav Nav with the preselected route 5 minutes before you are due to depart.

Now FULLY Functional

Whilst creating the ‘Ultimate Alarm Clock’ I wanted the speech engine to read out the details of my meetings for the coming day from my calendar. I was a little disappointed that Tasker did not yet have the functionality to do that and despite delving into the calendar data base files; I could not find a way to achieve it. Damn.

When Tasker is able to read calendar entries in future releases, the tasks described below can be easily adapted to make sure you have a ready to go profile, but in the mean time, and I hope as always, this tutorial is full of handy Tasker tips and tricks

Continue on to the tutorial thread to further your Tasker-based enlightenment.

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device.
