Default startup for stereo

Is is possible for the stereo to automatically connect and select your phone instead of always turning on the radio first? Searched the web and this forum and haven't been able to find anything. Thanks for you help.

The radio jumps to the first available audio source when powered on. It takes a bit to make a bluetooth connection from your phone to the Harley radio, so the radio defaults back to FM/AM etc.

On my 6.5, after the head unit has indexed my thumb drive the first time, if I shut the radio off it will go right back to USB as the source at the next power on cycle.

Thanks, guess I need to either put music on a thumb drive or just deal with it and set some radio stations so I don't hear static every time I turn the scooter on.

I turn down the volume before I shut down the bike. I got real tired of being blown out of the saddle
