    I added a BlackBerry Bluetooth Music Gateway to my car. It works well, pairs with my Storm 2 as an "Audio Sink" (why isn't it "Audio Sync"?) device and powers up via the cigarette lighter adapter when I turn my car on.

    I also have a Jabra SP700 speakerphone on my visor. Battery operated. It also is listed as an "Audio Sink" device, as well as AV Remote, Headset, and Handsfree when I look in the device properties section of my Storm's BT Options.

    So...

    When I first get in the car, the Music Gateway powers up first, and I have to reach up and turn on the Jabra, so its pairs up second. In this scenario, everything works fine -- music to my car stereo via the BlackBerry Music Gateway, and phone calls routed to the Jabra.

    But if I hop out of my car for an errand, when I come back, the Jabra remained on while I was away but the Music Gateway powered down and is powering up when I start the car, so it now pairs up as the second device. Suddenly, my music is being sent to my Jabra.

    >>> I think the problem is the Jabra is now recognized as the primary Audio Sink. I can't see any way to disable it. Does anybody know a workaround? If not, how about a replacement speakerphone which doesn't have / allows me to disable the Audio Sink feature?

    Jabra got back to me to say No, there is no way to disable the Audio Sink function on their device.

    I'm hit or miss with this: sometimes when I get back into the car, my Pandora will resume playing over the Music Gateway. Other times, it will play over the speakerphone or not at all (until I disconnect and re-pair my devices).

    If anybody knows of a similar visor-mounted speakerphone that doesn't act as an Audio Sink (listed in your Blackberry > Bluetooth > Bluetooth Options), I'd love to hear about it.
