Phone and iPod simultaneously?

I have an iPhone. I also have an iPod. Both are capable of bluetooth connection.

When I connect the iPod, the car seems to think it is a phone so won't use my iPhone.

Is there a way to connect both simultaneously so I can use the phone and also play the music on the iPod?

I know I can put music on a USB thumbdrive and then plug that in to one of the USB ports. Still, can I use the iPod and the phone or is it one or the other?

No. Tesla's Bluetooth implementation only allows for one device to be connected at a time even if they want to use different profiles. It's also 2017 in case you were wondering. (And that wasn't a knock at you).
