The bluetooth indicator at the notification area (between lock screen and multitasking screen where the time is displayed - how is this area called correctly?!) changes it's appereance as soon as a bluetooth device is connected. It's a very unrecognizable change (of course: in my opinion) that I even did not recognize for a long time that it changed. (The comment from @ziller told me that it changed)

It would be very nice if f.e. the white bluetooth icon would turn into blue as soon as a device is connected (just like on the beloved N9).

It would also be useful if the Jolla switched the screen on and told you a device has connected or disconnected. Currently it does not.

Ialso noticed that the indicator stays on even if bluetooth turned off. Seems like a bug.

Actually, it does change. It changes from white-on-grey to grey-on-white. At least does so on mine.

Also, it's mentioned in the official guide: http://jolla.com/guide/#sec-3 in the list of lock screen icons.

You're right, I just recognized that it changes when a bt device is connected. But the change is really subtle, so I rewrite the feature-request to make the change more recognizable.
