Leaked ICS, the Amaze and Car Bluetooth
We had a discussion some time ago about issues that were being reported with the Amaze and automobile Bluetooth systems. A lot of forum participants reported a variety of problems... including myslef. Several examples were: once paired the headphone icon would show up on the phone and you could hear the individual on the other side of the call, but they couldn't hear you; the phone kept turning on and off the car's Bluetooth system... the car's system was sent into a perpetual search for the phone; it would pair for only a few minutes then cancel the pairing automatically... on and on.
I had worked directly with T-Mobile in identifying some of these issues as my Amaze and car seemed to exhibit all of them at one point-in-time or another. Finally, HTC and T-Mobile acknowledged that issues did exist with the Bluetooth software and car systems. That a fix was being worked on. Speculation was that HTC would wait until ICS to fix any major issues such as the car Bluetooth problem.
Well, I have recently updated to the leaked ICS software and suddenly the Bluetooth problem with my car has gone away. It works perfectly now. As a matter of fact, the audio quality is so good that people I speak with while in the car mention how good it sounds.
Although I don't know this for a fact, it would seem that HTC did wait until ICS to fix the Bluetooth issues with the Amaze. All I can say, at least for me, the problem no longer exists with ICS. Finally... it works the way it should!
