    USB Charging while using BT audio

    Is there a way to charge the device while streaming BT audio? I just want to use the USB to charge, not to play music. It defaults to the ipod mode and I am streaming Sirius through BT and the app on my iphone. Any suggestions?

    Try letting the phone pair first then connect the USB. If I do it that way my phone gives me the option of charge only. Its a BB so I'm sure I'm one of the few people left who use one but I would think if RIM did it the other manufacturers would have that capability. I hope this works for you.

    I always let the phone pair first. Once it does, if I plug in it will revert to ipod function, and ignore Bluetooth. Even in iPod function it should let me play the Sirius app but it doesn't work. My 2010 infiniti had no issues doing this.

    The BT works fine but once you plug it in it no longer works. Just uses iPod function.

    Get one of THESE and call it a day this is my favorite because it's powerful and doesn't interfere with with the caps on the 12 volt outlets

    And there are all sorts of charge only USB cables if nothing else works. Or if you are geeky, you can use a USB Condom which is basically the same thing but in the form of an exposed circuit board with a standard male and female connector on opposite ends.

    I'll confirm when I goto work in the morning the sequence I use, but I know I have to manually change how the car streams audio, it doesn default to iPod, if I was using blue tooth my last drive and I I plug in my phone I will have to select a radio channel and then back to media for it to change to the iPod from Bluetooth streaming and visa versa
