Yes, I read the manual. And it states that I can have multiple cell phones connected via Bluetooth on the Bolt's system. Except, when I try to activate one of my several phones, it disconnects the phone that was working on the system.


Any suggestions?

You can pair as many as you want paired but only connect one @ a time.

Every Bluetooth device I've ever used kicks off the currently paired and connected source as soon as I attempt to connect a different source (that was previously paired). Why would the Bolt be any different?


Are you certain that the manual doesn't say "paired", rather than "connected"?

Slightly related: If I have my phone plugged in and am using Android Auto, my wife can plug in her iPhone and the Bolt thinks it's an iPod and will let her play music from the iPhone while I continue with Android Auto. It won't do that if there is already a USB key connected (need a hub to do that).

I have Bose headphones that pretty seamlessly switch back and forth between devices. I can be listening to music from one and get a phone call on the other, take the call and just tap play to resume music. This probably isn鈥檛 quite the same as the problem faced by the OP, but similar. I know some folks like to beat up Bose, but they have the only BT implementation I鈥檝e every used that is really satisfactory. It 鈥渏ust works鈥. I鈥檝e found BT in the Bolt usable, but the difference in volume between BT input and radio is pretty annoying - as well as inexplicable.
