Bluetooth dropping on MY13 - 730N RHP radio
 
Anyone had the Bluetooth connection suddenly drop between system and phone during phone calls on a regular basis (Android Samsung S2).

Over the last couple of weeks during every second or third call I make or receive - the Bluetooth connection drops out.

I've made hundreds of calls over the years and don't remember this ever occurring before and the phone is always in the one of the usual positions of the cup holder, centre console, or pocket.

Yes, 2014 Wk2 Laredo and Nexus 4

Add/remove pairing did not fix it
Upgrade to 14.x uconnect did not fix it

It drops at random for about 15 seconds, then continues where it left off

Often on conference calls an hour long, so annoying

Never had a problem with my Nokia Lumia 925, or the Samsung S3 I had before it.
Are you running the stock ROM and Radio ?
If it was working fine before, it most likely is a phone or head unit problem. Swapping phones with something different will eliminate or confirm the phone as a problem.

Yes I do SOX. I have 2.184 and the phone is the stock ROM with whatever updates have occurred - which haven't been for a while.

Don't recall it ever happening before. And am not sure when it started exactly as I originally assumed it was a telecommunication signal loss. It's only recently that I noticed that the phone and phone call was still alive and that it was the bluetooth connection that had disconnected/dropped.

Oh please tell me it's related to 2.184 so I don't have to deal with Jeep Service
bullshit in getting the unit replaced.

The bluetooth problem seems to be an android bug on 4.3 and 4.4

couple hundred pages of whining on google developer forums

I deleted pairing a few times and now it seems better

Not fixed, but instead of daily drops gone to weekly

The misses mentioned that she no longer had a phone connection last week. I thought it was a once of, but she said yesterday it still doesn't connect.

Galaxy Note II Android 4.3
I don't have this issue with my iPhone 4S iOS 7.0.6

Traktor if it is an Android issue that is not great, even worse is that it's not fixed with 4.4

4.4 updates for Samsung devices (add weeks to Aus devices for local carrier testing first)

Had a GPS upgrade and a whole vehicle system upgrade a few weeks ago. Blutooth drops out regularly now. It rarely did before.

Actually an introduced problem when the addition of Bluetooth LE, seem to resurrect the terrible driver issues

Impact devices with specific Qualcomm based chipsets

Aside from the pairing, you get echo, loss of volume control, more echo, etc

Some people found betterness by ensuring that wifi was off (insert dimsay)

Simple things first.
