I purchased a Jambox today. When I saw that Jambox could connect to multiple devices I expected that I would be able pair two devices and then be able to pick up either of my paired devices and tell them to send audio to the Jambox. Now I have found that Jambox is only offer A2DP to one device at a time. It seems I'm supposed to go through some process of disconnecting one or both devices and reconnecting them in some priority order to allow the correct one to play music/video. That's pretty poor.
Multipoint doesn't seem fully developed if it can handle multiple pairings but can't offer services to all those pairings. I basically need a router for Bluetooth and I thought that's what Multipoint was.
If to run two A2DP channels at once would require and additional bluetooth transceiver in the Jambox, then the only alternative I see is giving the user a way to 'step' through the connected devices. e.g. Holding the power switch up will activate pairing mode, maybe flicking it up for a section could divert the A2DP connection to the next paired device in it's memory.
What are your ideas on how you could acheive this?
