    Has anyone worked out how you can keep a second phone connected when you use car play?

    I have work and personal phones and with EBT i can use both. I wanted to use Waze and spotify on carplay but it means i cant keep my personal phone connected for calls... which is fecking dumb...

    I have EBT and my 2 phones stay connected when using car play.

    You don't have full functionality as car play takes precedence so you can't use voice control on Android as Siri takes control of the button.

    If I want to make a call I either need to select them from the recent calls via the roller wheel button or manually donor via the Samsung.

    I keep the iPhone connected as main phone via car play and the Samsung is added as a second device.

    Not ideal as you lost Carplay functionality when using the Android phone such as Waze, etc.

    Yes, both mobiles can receive calls but the call waiting feature is disabled as it will automatically divert the Android phone to voicemail if I'm on the Apple with a call.

    You need to connect the iPhone as the main phone and the Android as the second device. It didn't seem to work the other way around.

    Carplay take precedence over the other mobile connection.

    Yes I can still answer calls but Waze will be deactivated whilst you make the call on Android and restart when the call ends.

    My personal phone is iPhone and work phone is Android. If I'm making work calls via the idrive, the Carplay is paused I'm afraid.

    Haven't found a way around that despite trying.

    I have finally managed to sort this out. This version of idrive is the most buggy I've ever used. It would not let me delete phones. Took me ages to delete and re add the phones. I'd click on the Samsung and the iphone would show up.

    I also really wish I could delete apple maps cus that program is total crap. And for some reason siri favours maps before google or waze
