Can I connect my Razr Maxx to two bluetooth audio devices (for different purposes) at the same time?
I ask because I currently use bluetooth for phone calls in my car, and connect to my radio with a 3.5mm cable via the headphones jack for music.
What I'd like to do is hack a pair of bluetooth headphones to act as a wireless receiver for the phone that then plugs in to the line in on my car stereo, eliminating the plug for audio.
I've never tried to use two bluetooth devices at once before, but I seem to remember a few people saying that you could connect a bluetooth mouse and keyboard separately (if they're not integrated together) at the same time when I was looking into using my phone with webtop, but never tried it.
If I remember right...when pairing your phone at Set-up you have an option for Phone Only or Audio Setup...I would listen to my music thru my speakers with Audio Setup or Multi-Media Set up

What A Day Of Fishing...
Thanks guys, I saw a few posts on other forums (for other devies) that said you can pick what each device does, so one would be phone only (what my car is currently set for) and one can be for multimedia.
I was going to try and hack a pair of bluetooth headphones for it, but found a real cheap bluetooth receiver on eBay, only about $7 shipped, so I went with that. Will see how it goes!
You can have one SCO Bluetooth device connected for phone calls and an A2DP Bluetooth device connected for higher quality media, like media.
There is an app called SoundAbout, in Google Play, that makes routing the various audio locations easier.
Thanks. I ordered a device to push the bluetooth audio to my car, will have to see how it works out when it arrives.
Got the bluetooth device today, will try it out tomorrow!
Follow up question, does anyone know the voltage output of the USB port on an OEM Chevrolet Cobalt radio head unit? I realized that's the only USB port I have to use for this right now, as I don't have a USB charger for the car at the moment. I know it can provide power, but when I used to plug my Droid X into it to charge, it would drain faster than it charged if using GPS and streaming music. If the phone was idle with the screen off, it did charge, albeit slowly.
I'm guessing this USB device doesn't use a lot of power, just hoping it's enough.
I plugged it in to my USB port on my radio and it worked! Paird with no issues, and music quality was excellent. Just have to get a cigarette plug with a USB on it so I can tuck the receiver somewhere else. I took some pictures that I'll try to post later.
