There has to be a better way. Just got a 2015 CPO Tech a few weeks ago, trading our 2008 Tech/Ent. Wife and I have paired our phones ( Galaxy S7's) and all is well. On our 2008, if we wanted to change phones while driving we would press the phone access button and say "next phone", and it would change from mine to hers or hers to mine. The 15 does not seem to be able to do this. It seems to like to pair to my wife's phone if both are present, so once underway it seems we can't change without stopping and manually change phones thru the settings. Did I just miss something? Help me out here.

Thanks!

First imho the bluetooth phone funtion in my 2015 MDX ADV/Ent sucks. I have an older filp phone, this phone works with every other bluetooth device I have. It works hands free with all 5 of the bluetooth headsets that have been on my motorcycle helmet. These are three different models from two different manufactures. I have had four different earbuds that worked great with my flip phone, some of the earbuds were only about $20.00. But my $57,000 MDX will not work at all with my phone. I can pair them I can connect them and if I stand on my head while driving I may be able to make a call. If some one calls me the car will hang up the phone as soon as I try to answer..
Acuras response It is not on our approved list. They suggestion to fix the problem buy an approved phone. WTF.

Now is your wife's phone the first phone on the list ? Also while moving have you tried turning her phone letting your phone connect and them turning her phone back on ? If that worked at least you wouldn't have to stop ?
Sorry but if you read all of my post you can see I have little experience with the MDX bluetooth .

Yes, hers is first and she is Driver #1. We first linked them both before we even pulled off the lot with it. While trying to figure it out, I deleted my phone and re-paired it with the Driver #2 active, thinking (hoping) that it would select the phone per the Driver 1 or 2 being active. No cigar. At this point unless there is an easier solution, I will delete both phones and make mine primary so it pairs mine over hers. I drive 99% of the time we are out together, and it will still pair hers when she is out and about without me.
