    I just found an iPod in my desk that I never use. I downloaded the Spotify app on it and have downloaded some playlists and added the iPod to the system. But, what I realized was it's either my phone or my iPod, but not both. I was hoping to leave the iPod in the car, connected to the charger and use it as a music player so I wouldn't have to take my phone out of my pocket to stream. Can anyone figure a way around that problem? It seems you can only have one source connected at a time through bluetooth.

    Your iphone has all the same functionality of your old ipod touch, and more actually. Set it up as an ipod, get both devices at once. You can use it from your pocket - well, sort of - you'll need to take it out to start things maybe, but that's all. FWIW I use my iphone, using Neutron to play all the different music files that I have, and sit it in the charging dock while driving.

    I hate that there is only one pairing. 50/50 chance when wife and I head to car on whose phone connects first
