I also had problems when I first installed this profile. This, I
believe, is due to how these tasks and profiles are loaded into tasker
when downloaded from the wiki. It was not until I realized that two
tasks (an enter task and an exit task) needed to be "connected" to the
power plug in profile.
Your profile should look like this after you download it and install
it into tasker. You might need to fix it to look like this:
Profile: Power Plug In
Context: Power Plugged in: Task: Power Plug In
Context:Time, from 5:00 Till 22:51: Exit Task: Standard Mode (All Off)
Sometimes, either the context or one of the tasks is missing. The task
will not run properly until fixed.
Sorry my phone is not rooted, otherwise I would post a pic.
The stock car dock program will run, using the task in its as-
downloaded condition. You can change the Run APP operation in the car
mode task to any alternative car dock program. Two alternatives that
are in the Android Market are "Custom Car Home" and "Car Dock". I
prefer CCH as it handles icons better.
Some things I have learned: If you use Sprint Navagation, Tasker will
not be able to modify the media volume from within Tasker. I am still
playing with an app called Volume Toggle. It may be able to interface
with Tasker (has a locale plug-in). Right now I either have to press
the volume up button after sprint navigation starts, or press the
Volume Toggle widget to raise the volume up for sprint navigation.
Google nav. voice sounds too mechanical for me, so I rarely use it
