I have a Galaxy S-5 and a few NFC tags. Now I need help setting it up.
Would like to turn on Bluetooth when I get in my Jeep and off when I get out.
Search didn't reveal much.
Thanks.
 
That's a good question. I'm going to follow this thread, because I keep thinking it'd be nice to get some setup myself.

The tags didn't come with any help/info on how to set them up? I know there was a brand I was reading about that had a companion app. Maybe you're missing something like that?
 
There are several apps that will program NFC tags. Like Jonny Kansas said, some NFC tags recommend a specific app, but any of them should work with any tags. They're all pretty straightforward and simple to understand. Here are a few:

Trigger

NFC Tools (along with the companion app NFC Tasks, which is required for some advanced functions like enabling Bluetooth)

Samsung Tectiles
 
Got the apps. Got the tags. Probably screwed up a tag or two playing with them. Any help out there how to make these work?

See my avatar? It's a 1978 Jeep. I was close to 30 when I bought it new. Does that qualify me as old enough to need help here?
 
This walks you through how to set up, create, and even re use nfc tags...
