I think there is some confusion about exactly what you are asking. But what I think you mean is, if you pair your “old spare phone” to your Model 3 to use as a music source, will you still be able to use your primary phone to open the car door? If so, I think the answer is “Yes”.
Right. BT for sound is only one connection at a time.I think there is some confusion about exactly what you are asking. But what I think you mean is, if you pair your “old spare phone” to your Model 3 to use as a music source, will you still be able to use your primary phone to open the car door? If so, I think the answer is “Yes”.
However, if you have your “old” phone in your Model 3 and are playing music through the car with it, if someone calls you on your primary phone you won’t be able to answer that phone through the car.
You can manually switch BT phone/audio connections. You have to hit the BT icon, disconnect one phone and then connect the other one. When my wife goes into a shop, and I wait in the car. I will have to disconnect her phone and connect mine so I could play music from my phone. If she is far enough away, the car may auto switch to my phone. But if she is only about 70 feet away in the shop, it won't auto switch even if her BT signal is very weak.This thread came up on a search, is the following possible?
Wife and I both have phones (of course who doesn't) paired to the car. When we both get in the car I would like the car to automatically "connect" to whoever is driving (active profile). The other person can make or take calls on their phone handset. Or is the selection of phone that connects static? Obviously when it's just one of us driving we want that phone to connect.
Thanks for the thorough explanation. Remind me again, this is supposed to be a convenience, right?So, you both can have profiles. Each profile has a particular cell phone associated with it. One of the profiles can be the "Priority" profile. In theory, if both you and the spouse show up at the same time, the Priority profile gets enabled. If the spouse shows up and you're not present, then it goes for the profile associated with spouse's phone. If you then show up, later, it'll stay on the spouse's phone.
Further, suppose that it's the spouse's car. You both get in, but you're in the driver's seat. You get folded in two because the car saw the spouse and enabled her profile. Hit the button at the top of the screen and select your profile and, in theory, both the seat unfolds and your phone gets selected.
As @davewill states, though, the algorithms sometimes get a bit confused. In addition to the question of which phone is the key (and therefore selects the correct profile, one hopes), there's the independent issue of the bluetooth profile, which determines if, for example, a phone rings, whether said phone uses the car's hands-free system or the phone itself rings. That also matters for the purpose of streaming music, the address book, and who to ring when one hits the right scroll wheel and states, "dial so-and-so".
Which phone is active for bluetooth connectivity (not key) purposes usually follows the profile, but not always. On trips, with both of us present, we have learned to check the Bluetooth settings and make sure that the correct phone (usually, the driver's) is the active phone for calls and the like.
However, there's always snivveys. Suppose that one is in the car as the driver, the correct profile is set and all, but one's spouse has just gotten a call on the spouse's telephone. One would dearly like to join the conversation. In which case, hit the controls buttons, bottom left: The bluetooth icon will appear on the top right; tap the bluetooth icon, then select the phone whose conversation one would like to horn in upon. The car will connect and the call will come through the speakers and all, without hanging up the on-going phone call.
Not necessarily. I've seen it switch Bluetooth connections when I select the right profile, but I've also had it fail to do so.Thanks for the thorough explanation. Remind me again, this is supposed to be a convenience, right?
Sounds like no matter what once the car decides which pair device to connect it doesn't switch unless you explicitly change it.
Pretty much what we've done over here.I think that my wife and I have solved the dual phone, dual car problem.
Her's is paired with her car, mine is paired with mine. It's not optimal, but it is deterministic and reliable.
