Bluetooth Experiences

Hi all,

I am just wondering what everyone's BT experience have been with this car while playing audio. I have an AT&T Note 2 and have an issue where the BT will fully disconnect for a second or two and then reconnect. Often times, I have to press play again to get the music back on after the reconnect. I am trying to figure out if that is the phone or the car...

I have a feeling it is my phone. Android BT has sucked since 4.1.

I am running 4.1.2 on a RAZR HD and I have used it to play to the 8.4 a few times, never had any issues.

You may wish to check and see if there is a UConnect update as well.

Re: Bluetooth Experiences

Bluetooth on the WK2 is horrible compared to others. On my old 4runner, if I left the setting for bluetooth, as soon as I turned on my car, it was connected. With the WK2, you have to wait for it to connect and then it reconnects. Half the time I don't see the text for song and artist...it just says "Bluetooth1".

Thanks, checking for an update now. The site seems slow and keeps disconnecting. Maybe this means an update is rolling out
