    My car supports bluetooth for phone calling but does not support it for bluetooth audio. I found a device that I can pair with that provides bluetooth audio, but wasn't sure if it was possible to have my phone paired with both my car + this device?

    Seems like it should be simple for an app to detect when the phone is ringing/off hook and connect to one bluetooth device, and default to the other when it is not. Is there anything like this? I'm rooted BTW.

    Pretty sure you can only be paired with one device at a time.

    And no apps can intelligently manage which bluetooth device is paired?? I find this hard to believe with Google being open source that nobody has figured out how to do this. The app Tasker is almost able to do it except it can't pick specific Bluetooth devices. When it gets updated to be able to pick a specific Bluetooth device I can just set up profiles for any phone-related stuff pairs with my car, and anything else will default to the other one.

    Was just hoping there was some other workaround.

    Try it and see? Most devices that do media and phone can connect to 2 devices, like my eq7 will connect to mp3 player then allow phone to connect as phone. Never tried it the other way around.

    Yeah, worth a try. Pair them one at a time, then try using then at the same time.

    Works fine. I have mine paired to my VTech phone and Belkin Music receiver at the same time. Streams the audio until I get a phone call, pauses the music, I take the call, end call, music starts. As long as they use independent Bluetooth protocols, you're fine.
