    Default Bluetooth music streaming to car - iPhone vs android

    My car is 2012 bmw 520d with bluetooth car audio option added.

    During the first 6 months i enjoyed the easy connectivity of my car and my streaming audio app in iphone 4G - both the music and phone worked just fine.

    However, after moving to galaxy s3, the bluetooth connection between car and phone loses so frequently, which is so annoying that i no longer uses the connection now.

    My wife and I share this car, and after her changing iphone to s4, same problem occurred to it.

    When I asked this question to my local forum guys, there were some answers like turning-on "WI-FI" may interfere with bluetooth connection. It helped a little but not all.

    Then my sister who bought Hyundai told me similar problem she experienced - iphone works fine but her galaxy s4 does not.

    Maybe I've got to move back to Apple or change car - both are kind of hard and no guarantee..

    Anyone had ever suffer this situation?

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 and a new Ford Explorer and the bluetooth works great... With or without the Wi-Fi turned on.

    Not sure with the BMW system, but with my Ford Fiesta with Sync, I know that the first time I changed phones, it worked, but would have various issues. I reset the added devices list, deleted the phonebook, everything that was tied to the old phone, and added the new phone, worked perfect then. Just an idea to try.
    I enjoy technology from many sources.

    Check with your BMW dealer. There might have been an update to the car's firmware.
    Samsung Galaxy S3 4gLTE
