Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

My wife and I have identical Samsung GT S5230 phones. Both will pair with my Kia Ceed bluetooth. The head unit will accept 5 devices but both will not connect with the unit at the same time meaning we cannot have both phones on with active bluetooth when we are both in the car. Is this how it should work or am I expecting the system to do more than it can please?

The issue with Bluetooth connections is that with two headsets and two phones, you have to have your firmware set up to handle ONLY ONE set per phone. This means that if you set it to ONLY accept YOUR headset on your phone, it should work regardless of any other Bluetooth capable devices in range. If there are two possible devices in range and the phone is set to accept either one, it does not know where to send the signal -- and as a security feature, it turns the Bluetooth off so in a crowd no one can use your phone, or listen in on your conversations.
Setting your Bluetooth to accept only one device (being your headset) should allow you to work in the car next to your wife, but will also limit you on which headset you can use -- if you accidentally grab your wife's headset as you are out the door on your way to work, it will not function until you open the channel again. I am not even sure if every Bluetooth capable phone has a function to limit their connectivity, but if this issue is bothering you a lot it might be worth a look in your Bluetooth settings).
Just as a test, and because it sparked my curiosity, I recommend trying this:
Be out of range for your wife's headset and make a phone call on your headset to someone who is willing to hold on the line while you do this. Then, while you are connected with your Bluetooth to your friend, sit in your car with your wife and her phone and Bluetooth. The connection to the headset on your phone should be locked in place from the beginning of the phone call, and so it should not cut out when your wife's Bluetooth headset comes into range of your phone. While this conversation with your friend is still going on on your headset, have your wife make a call on her headset if she can. Because there is only one Bluetooth device available (since yours is in use) she should be able to make the connection with her phone, in spite of it being in proximity to yours. Finally ... hang up your phone, and have your wife do the same. With both phones inactive, try placing a call from the Bluetooth on one of the phones -- the system may set your headset as the default device for your phone, and your wife's would do the same, and the issue should be rectified.
I make no guarantees that this will work ... I am not all that familiar with the complexities of the Bluetooth wireless system and whether or not you can set the system this way, but it is worth a shot. The system may be designed to prevent this type of back door approach, but it would seem reasonable that it could work. Best of luck to you!
