    Phone: Note 8, Android 8.0.0, Bluetooth device: Mpow Bluetooth receiver (PAMPBH044AB-PTX-1 )

    After a recent OTA security update in the last week I noticed my bluetooth device keeps disconnecting after 14-15secs of idle activity. This is most apparent/annoying during turn by turn by turn navigation using Waze or Google Maps, where after it idles off, then resumes a connection, the immediate direction is cut off, e.g. instead of hearing "In 500 feet, turn right onto XXXXXX" I'll get "...right onto XXXXXX"

    This does not happen if I have a constant connection by using a music app in conjunction with a navigation app. I've tried resetting bluetooth connections, unpairing/repairing, clearing bluetooth data/cache, and made sure Maps, Waze, Bluetooth, Bluetooth MIDI, etc. are not battery optimized. I've believe this disconnect/reconnect is due to some battery optimization during idle periods, because I can hear a static pop when the connection is dropped immediately 14-15secs after a direction is dictated.
