Default Retrieving Custom Bluetooth Device Name?

Please Login to Remove!


When you pair a bluetooth device you can enter a custom device name.

When you try to access the device and it asks for the passkey, the dialog says:

Enter numeric passkey for <custom device name>:

In my app, I call

But this returns the actual name of the bluetooth device, ie "Garmin GPS/10".

Is there any way to retrieve the custom device name?
