OK, so bear with me on this..

I am one of those weird individuals that prefer to use a bluetooth headset in my car..even if there is a bluetooth carkit fitted. The audio quality is just far superior.

However, I also like to stream music from my phone via bluetooth.

In my previous cars this has not been a problem as the bluetooth connections on my Sony phone has profiles that can be disabled/enabled per connection, so I always disabled the media profile for my bluetooth headset and enabled it for the car connection, which conversely had the call profile disabled.

This meant I could make/receive calls on my bluetooth headset, whilst simultaneously streaming music/sat nav prompts to my bluetooth stereo via A2DP (media streaming)..I tend to use Waze for real-time sat nav.

Anyway, this doesn't work on my Sportage KX-4 Sat Nav/Audio head unit.

I can connect to the Sportage OK, but the moment I disable to call profile (even though the media profile is still enabled), the Sportage immediately drops the connection.

Am I missing something obvious here?

If I can't sort this, it's going to be a real pain! It's almost as though the Sportage is not recognising the different bluetooth profiles..which would make it a very poor bluetooth implementation indeed!!

The sportage only allows one bluetooth connection at a time so it's calls to the headset,  or calls and music via the phone for you Im afraid.
As for poor implementation, it's a budget car. That said, unless you buy enhanced bluetooth, BMW is thesame.

Well, none of my previous 3 cars had this problem...a Vauxhall Insignia, a Chevrolet Captiva and a Nissan Qashqai

I wouldn't have called any of them premium cars....in fact all fall in to your "budget" criteria.

No complaints with my Bluetooth system, just wish I had a touch screen and the ability to read texts as per my Citroen van!!!

No point getting ratty with me, I'm only the messenger. And I didn't set any criteria for budget cars.

Not getting ratty at all!

Just pointing out that your assertion that the bluetooth on the Sportage was poor because it was a budget car didn't really stand up scrutiny.

Also, the fact that I've sort of solved my issue with an £11 bluetooth Aux adapter, kind of shows that decent bluetooth functionality is not limited to premium brands.
