1 Jag, 2 Phones

Post by Rickster1978 » Tue Apr 30, 2019 10:53 pm

Hi all

So I recently got my first XE and one thing I have noticed is that I seem to only be able to have one phone connected at a time. My previous VW allowed for two to be connected so I could always have my work and personal phone connected (one android and one iPhone).

I have the incontrol touch pro system with the larger screen so I was wondering if it’s possible to connect the iPhone via CarPlay and the android via Bluetooth. Has anyone else managed to set up two phones to run at the same time.

My wife and I are both connected on mine. It seems to connect to hers when we're both in the car, and I think it's likely due to hers being added most recently?! Someone else I'm sure will come up with a better reason.

It’s a real shame that you can’t have two connected at the same time. Only now have I realised how useful it was on the VW. A little surprised that a 2016 scirocco can manage it but a 2018 jaguar can’t :(

I don't even have 1 connected and have my phone on mute whenever in the car. I enjoy the solitude of driving too much to have a mobile interrupting me.

I have two phones connected in my car, MY19 ICT PRO. If I am travelling for work my work phone has priority and connects with telephone Bluetooth and my personal phone connects as multi-media Bluetooth. So I can play music from my personal phone and answer calls on my work phone if I need to.
If I do not have my work pone with me then my personal phone connects as both phone and media.

I could do this on my old MY16 ICT system although it was a manual selection to switch telephone from my personal to the work phone when traveling for work, leaving my personal phone for media. But I could have both phones connected at the same time.

Can you have both mobiles connected as phones, i.e. able to receive and make calls ?

I have not tried to make two phones connect with Telephone, but from remembering about the settings I don't believe that is achievable, from the old ICT the selection was by tick boxes, so you could only tick one phone for Telephone at a time. With this current ICTPro I believe it is the same also so in that case you are correct in not being able to connect two mobiles as phone devices.
For me it's not a problem as if I am driving for work I am only concerned about the work calls and when driving otherwise there is usually someone else in the car who can answer their own phone. But I can see if you have had it before it is a nice to have again.

I forward calls from my work phone to personal phone, so that I don't miss any calls, if I need to make a call with work phone I make this phone priority, or turn Bluetooth off on personal phone, depending on my needs
