    I have a Note 5 that the bluetooth will not stay connected with my car. Same phone would connect with 2013 car now it won't stay connected with 2016 car. The message reads Unfortunately bluetooth has quite and the media connect will shut off.

    Bluetooth is a means of connecting 2 devices, but there's nothing in the spec specifying what data gets transferred or what format it has to be in - so staying connected to one car but not another is par for the course. (I sometimes think it's the car manufacturer's way of forcing you to buy a new phone ... but their profit on that wouldn't be enough to waste time thinking about it.)

    Some day we'll have a spec that will enable manufacturers to make Bluetooth work with all devices, but we don't have one yet. (13 years ago, you couldn't send MMS from one carrier to another - because they didn't all use the same spec. We're getting cellphones to work, but very slowly.)
