    Could it be due to using a custom Rom?

    marc, could be due to how you've paired the devices. perhaps try pairing the car to the phone instead of the phone to the car? know what i mean? i've found bt on previous androids to be somewhat flakey and I imagine the nexus isn't much different, though I haven't checked myself. all i have is some tiny bt headset somewhere, and who the hell knows where it is! lol

    I have a 2011 Ford F150 Lariat Supercrew 4x4 with Sync and my Gnex works good. Have only streamed Slacker though. I'll make it a point to try streaming Google music next time though and report back.

    My Sync version is gen1 3.2.2 I believe.

    Edit: as a side note, I always get whatever I want to use playing on my phone before saying "Bluetooth audio".

    I have a 2011 Kia forte sx and my Bluetooth audio won't work with my gnex, only the phone part. My rezound works. Any idea If this is a bug?

    I was able to play songs using google music. Interestingly enough i always start slacker before switching the radio to bluetooth.

    I wish the microsoft sync would always stay on bluetooth audio. In my other car i have a kenwood that stays on the bluetooth input even when disconnected.

    In the bluetooth settings on the phone press the settings button next to the device you are paired to and make sure media audio is checked.

    BT works fine in my 11 Optima. Every once in a while it won't output audio (but phone still works) and I found that if I reboot or put the phone in airplane mode and then back, it works again.

    2010 F150 and It works when it wants to! Sometimes it works like a charm other times (specially when I get out of the truck and then back in) it disconnects and then says it reconnects but then won't play any audio through the truck!

    I have Sync v2 2.11 and the G-Nex seems to work fine. That said, Sync itself is a work in progress. It doesn't surprise me that some people have problems, while others don't. Sync v3 is supposedly due out Jan 2012 (but I wouldn't be surprised if it was delayed). Sorry you're having problems.

    Deleting the phone profile on Sync, doing a reset, or pulling Fuse 28 (in that order) may help. Good luck.

    See my reply at the bottom of page 1, see if that helps.

    got it work.
    Here is what i did:
    reset sync - did not work
    reset pairing - did not work
    pair from phone -> car - did not work(could not delete ford sync from phone, no delete under settings)

    This worked, turn off media sharing on phone, then re-enabled. Maybe the new media server in ICS had a issue that needed to be reset?

    thanks for everyone's help!!!

    (when will they enable blue tooth MAP profile in the phone for text messaging. Guess this should be another thread)

    How do I turn off media sharing on the phone? I'm having problems as well with my ford touch..was working perfect . Now the phone and my ford touch can't find each other.. I tried everything. Deleted , started over and still doesn't work.

    my audio works fine but can't get my sync to read my text messages. my dx2 worked fine but can't get my gnex to do it. everything else works fine. i have a 2012 ford fusion if that helps!

    2010 F150 SCREW and I have yet to have any issues other than having my other phone paired and when it was in range of the truck it took precedence over my GN. Once I unpaired the old phone I did not have another issue. Streamed from Google Music the entire day yesterday as we visited family members with out issue.

    My F150 has worked flawlessly with the GN. As another said, the only thing that isn't supported is text messages.

    I checked the settings in the GN for the "Car M_Media" paired device and only have an option for phone audio. Media audio does not show up as an option. Does this mean I won't be able to play music or use google navigation through the bluetooth device in my car?

    Thanks for your help!

    The bluetooth connection in my car must be named CAR M_Media. That's what the GN is pairing to. Phone calls seem to work just fine between the phone and the bluetooth connection in the car, but the google navigation voice does not come through the car speakers when the bluetooth devices are paired.
