I just recently started using a Blue Parrot headset and have an issue that I’m sure many have dealt with and has an easy fix im just too tech dumb to figure it out.

I connect my iPhone to the BP as well as the radio to listen to music, podcasts etc… well, when I get a call I can answer it on the headset but it immediately switches over to the radio. I have to go into my phone and manually switch to the Blue Parrot Bluetooth option.

I have my phone set to the headset as the default and it works just fine if I don’t have the radio connected to Bluetooth, but this issue is annoying when music is playing. I hate having to manually switch on my phone when I’m driving.

Anyone know how to resolve this?

Choose one Bluetooth device to which your phone is connected. Switching back and forth is not a realistic option.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I have an Android phone. I have it set up to use the Bluetooth headset for calls. But I have the audio to go through my truck radio. I do this because I prefer to listen to podcasts and other things such as my Bluetooth assistant audio through the truck speaker.

To set it up this way I have the audio unselected for my Bluetooth headset and calls unselected for my truck radio.

This is exactly what I would like to do with my iPhone but I can’t figure out how.

Hopefully some iPhone guys will chime in.
