Setting a default/primary Bluetooth device?

Tue Jul 18, 2017 10:51 am

I'm not sure if there's a solution but thought I'd ask. I have an Android, my Wife has an iPhone. If we both get in the car at the same time, the iPhone always connects first. I'd prefer to have it setup so that the Android connects as the primary bluetooth phone. Is there a way to set this?

I recently rented a Kia Soul and it's head unit had an option to define a device as the primary, so I know other vendors have sorted this out. Anyone know if Nissan has a similar option?

I carry two iPhones, but in my car whichever was the most recently/last connected is the one that becomes active next time round.

I don't think it depends on phone's OS. The reason can be in quality of connection, Bluetooth's version or latest connection settings.
