    There was a lot of discussion here about problems with the 6P connecting to car phone systems. For me, it would connect and then disconnect then reconnect every 20-60 seconds. Completely unusable. I stopped using it.

    I got the Huawei Mate 9 and it does exactly the same thing.

    Personally, I think it's the fact that I have a 2010 vehicle. Older. However, I think some people said they had the problem with newer cars. Maybe it's Nougat. I disabled it on the Huawei too. Unusable.

    Just reporting from the front lines!

    Could it possibly be more on the side of the Bluetooth radio system rather than the phone? Mines a 2014 minivan and it doesn't skip off and on, but I have a little face-off style non factory type

    Yes. That's what I meant when I said I have a 2010 vehicle. The Bluetooth version is far behind version 4.2 (I don't know which it is).

    The bluetooth connection between my 6P and 2013 Nissan Xterra OEM radio is intermittent unless the phone is in proximity to the BT receiver. My old Samsung S3 worked fine anywhere in the vehicle. I think it's the HuaWei BT hardware that's crappola.

    My Nexus 6P seems to work fine on a 2011 Kia Forte.

    That said, Bluetooth on Android in general seems like a crapshoot - you can never tell if/when it's going to work, which peripheral it's going to work with, which profile (music vs. phone) is going to play nicely, etc.

    Apple didn't get this far by having a questionable implementation.

    My 6P worked flawlessly with my 2015 Toyota Highlander until the April or May 2016 update running M. Then from that point on my BT has been a disaster. It boots my car dash in a continuous loop, I have to turn off the BT on my 6P so the car will behave. Then N came along and it's slightly better, I can use the phone once to make or receive a call and then the car starts booting again - sometimes. If I pair my car with my old Galaxy S3 it works great.
