    I know it may be too soon to tell, but just wondering if anyone has noticed anything positive or negative after the update. I realize it was mostly a security update with fixes that may not have been affecting the masses, but just interested in seeing if anyone notices differences in battery life or if anyone thinks anything is broken as a result if the update. Keep in mind that there may be a placebo effect after an update or a mere coincidence that something is better or worse after the update.

    I saw something about that after the fact but wasn't sure if it was part of the update. That doesn't solve the problem for those that wanted their rapid charges to charge rapidly. There were additional fixes but nothing earth shattering.

    Edit: I went back and looked at the thread....you're right that is part of the update but it wasn't on the original list I saw.

    I noticed when my phone is connected through bluetooth in my car, or my garmin vivoactive 3 watch, music and podcast info is showing again on my car info screen or my watch. It wasn't showing before the update, so maybe they fixed it with this? Anyone else seeing the same thing?

    I see, yeah, not sure what happened, but i am getting the info again after the update. Maybe it's not widespread.

    Bluetooth is one of those things that seems like it will always be flakey.

    The degree of Bluetooth flakiness will, of course, be dependent on the quality of hardware on both ends and is subject to interference and distance between the two hardware pieces.

    Exactly.... especially if there are many Bluetooth devices nearby....like on a commuter train.

    yeah, there's always something going on w/ Bluetooth. It's very convenient when it works. sometimes it can be very frustrating especially when you are driving and it just decide to disconnect for no reason.

    Especially tough are the totally wireless earbuds where one channel drifts in and out. I think we need to remember that the purpose of Bluetooth has evolved over time and maybe it's just not well suited to do what expected of it.

    Bluetooth networking transmits data via low-power radio waves. It communicates on modulated frequencies between 2.402 GHz and 2.480 GHz. This frequency band has been set aside by international agreement for the use of industrial, scientific and medical devices. Any nearby device transmitting on the same or close frequency can cause interference. The quality of device electronics and antenna design as well as battery power can vary and also be problematic.

    I have nothing but headaches with all my Bluetooth ear pieces. It's beyond ridiculous in this day and age. Just this morning talking to my boss it cut out like 6 times in the span of a 5-6 minute call.

    Personally don't have any issues with any of many Bluetooth earbuds and in the car. Working perfectly every time, auto connects/disconnects in the car on start/stop as expected.
