Do I need to turn the Sudio Solar on and off every time I get in and out of my car?

How long do I stay connected for?
Provided the Sudio Solar and your mobile phone are within the operating range of 10 metres, they will stay connected to each other.
Will my mobile phone automatically connect when I’m in range of the Sudio Solar? Most mobile phones will auto connect to a paired device when you’re within range (provided they have been previously paired). If your mobile phone doesn’t auto connect, navigate to your Bluetooth® devices list in your mobile phone.
How can I tell if I’m connected?
If your mobile phone is connected to the Sudio Solar, you will see the connection status on your mobile phone.
