Default iPhone 5 over bluetooth for calls/ iPod on USB for music

Hey all- I am now using my iPhone 5 to play music thru BT and to answer BT calls. I really want to play my music thru the USB, but when I do that it kills my BT call feature...ugggh

soooo.. I am thinking of getting an iPod just for the USB music, and keeping my iPhone 5 connected thru BT for calls..

Is there anyone who has this type of set-up? Does it work? with the quirkiness of the iPhone 5 on this HU (non nav) I would rather not spend the $$$ on a new iPod if this wont work....

RR

hope I splained it correctly...

I had the designated setup of the ipod iphone for a while. I wound up getting using the old XM Skydock I had with a male-male running to the aux input. If you get a phone call whilst on AUX your BT wll pick it up. But with the skydock...or similar setup you can at least charge the phone and listen to it without the constant battery drain. It is ultimately the reason I switched to the aftermarket head unit.

Hope that helps!

I really like this idea, especially because I happen to have an extra skydock collecting dust...

Phoenix thanks for the great suggestion!
