Bluetooth Services and BB Music Gateway (enable / disable specific services for BT device)

My problem:

 

Have 2 paired bluetooth devices in my car (jabra freeway handsfree and BB music gateway)

When I jump in my car, the Jabra device connects first all the time. This connects me to it with both handsfree Bluetooth services and Audio services for playing music to the jabra.

 

I don't want to play music through the Jabra, only to the music gateway.

 

In order to get it working, I have to manually disconnect the jabra, then connect the music gateway, then re-connect the jabra again before driving off (pain in the ...)

 

If I let them connect automatically, the jabra has already connected to the music services for bluetooth, and the music gateway says there are no services that can connect,

 

if I connect the music gateway first, then it uses the music services connects fine, and the jabra only connects as a headset..

 

 

 

QUESTION:

 

1.) can I change the order in which devices connect automatically e.g. have music gateway connect 1'st and then jabra (that would solve it)

 

or

 

2.) can I disable the blutooth music services from connecting to my jabra device so that it only tries to connect the headset services leaving my music gateway to connect to the audio services.

 

TIA

Re: Bluetooth Services and BB Music Gateway (enable / disable specific services for BT device)

It's been a while since you posted this, so you have probably already stumbled on this solution.

 

I have a Jabra Cruiser rather than a Jabra Freeway, but I expect the same trick will work.

 

When I get out of my vehicle, I slide the switch on the Jabra to the off position. When I return to the vehicle, my BlackBerry automatically connects to the BlackBerry Music Gateway when I start the vehicle. When I turn on the Jabra after that, it autoconnects. Music goes to the Gateway, but phone calls go to the Jabra.
