If automatic is talking to my phone via bluetooth, how do I connect my phone to the car audio to use hands free, listen to music, etc?

Your bluetooth on the phone can connect to more than thing at a time. If your car has bluetooth (other than the Automatic device) just go into bluetooth on your car and in settings on your Android and pair them.

My phone is connected to my watch (Bluetooth low energy), is already paired with my car (regular Bluetooth). Since I installed Automatic, my phone no longer connects to the car unless I select it from settings on my car dash.

That's strange. I have the exact scenario you describe Keith and no issues with the Automatic connecting as well.

Hi, Keith! You should be able to connect to multiple devices, including your Automatic adapter, to your phone via Bluetooth. However, Automatic uses a different Bluetooth protocol and it is recommended to pair with Automatic first (run setup) then re-pair with your car Bluetooth. A number of other users have also said that disabling/turning off WiFi has helped too. For more info, check out this FAQ about experiencing interference when using your adapter and with a hands-free Bluetooth device. Please let us know if you are still running into issues even after these steps!
