See the following previous thread:
Yes every time you what to switch phones it mus be done within the menu.
Subaru at first told me it would auto-connect but then corrected it to it must be done manually within the menu. The following is from Subaru's last email;
"Thank you very much for your patience and follow-up. You have helped me discovery that information we were previously provided with was incorrect. I am very sorry for your time spent and inconveniences trying to obtain information.
I have notified our Training Manager of the incorrenct and correct information, so that all of us Customer Service Representatives are aware of this information.
You are correct in that it is not the last phone paired to the hands-free system in your vehicle that will automatically connect when entering the vehicle. The following information is from the Product Management Department:
Only the phone that is set to 'autoconnect' within the system will autoconnect. If a different paired phone needs to be connected, it would be necessary to go into the system and selected it as the phone to be connected. There is no modification to the system to allow for it to autoconnect in a different manner. There's a 'button' on the phone connection screen that you push to set 'autoconnect' by phone.
I know that this functionality of the hands-free system is not convenient to you and your wife, as you both regularly drive your vehicle. I had advised the Product Manager of your situation and this feedback. Our communications have also been documented in our Customer/Dealer Services database. This will allow for them to be properly reviewed, tracked and considered by our Product Management Department as a whole. Subaru is always striving to improve upon our products and appreciates when our customers bring their concerns and recommendations to our attention.
Because of your time and inconveniences with trying to obtain information,
