Bluetooth audio: automatically resume playing on bluetooth device reconnect
I have a 2012 Ford Edge SEL with the stock radio. It has bluetooth audio (bta) and Sync capabilities. I have an iPhone 5 now, but it did the same thing with an iPhone 4S.
I listen to bta nearly all the time. It's really great! However, when I turn my car off and return to the car later, it tries for only a fraction of a second to reconnect to the bluetooth media stream. Then it defaults to another audio source (usually line-in). So, I have to push the Sync button and say "Bluetooth Audio" in order for the audio stream to restart where it left off.
I have owned the car for 18 months now, and I estimate that I have said "Bluetooth Audio" at least 3,600 times. (My wife tells me I now say "Bluetooth Audio" in my sleep).
The radio appears to wait only a second before defaulting to another audio source. As you know, bluetooth devices can take a while to sync back up. I assume this is a software issue. Can you increase the timeout before it defaults to another audio source? Can you provide an update that accomplishes this?
I don't want to have to say "Bluetooth Audio" every time I get in my car!
Thanks for listening.
