    Bluetooth biased toward i-phone?

    I've been noticing an annoying issue with blutooth and my Android phone.
    As long as I'm the only one using my car's bluetooth each day, all is well. But.. If my wife was last to use bluetooth with her i-phone my Android will not connect automatically even though there are no other active connections and wife's i-phone is not in range.
    I have to hit phone icon, go to connections screen, pick my phone from the list and connect from there. After I've done this everything is back to normal until wife's i-phone connects again.
    Has anyone else seen/experienced similar issues?


    Will weld for beer.

    I believe the system only auto-connects the last connected phone to the system. You have to manually select another paired phone if you want to switch from the last connected device. Then it will become the auto-connect device until another is selected manually.

    I have 2 androids and that's how it behaves, last phone connected becomes the default which means your wife should be comlaining she has to fiddle to get her apple connected. is she?
    Zero, my 2014 ES Plus gone but not forgotten. We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century

    No she isn't. But she drives the car maybe 4 times a month and doesn't have a feel for how things usually work in the car. I'm sure she just assumes going through the connect process is normal.
    What you and Inuvik are saying makes sense so I'm satisfied nothing is amiss. Thanks for helping out.
