    I'm not even going to try to pair it with the My Sync in my 2012 Fusion. I tried it with my S3 and the voice recognition was terrible. When I tried to have a contact dialed it couldn't do it. Plus using the car's speaker/mic is a lot of road noise for the party you're calling, I use a Bluetooth earpiece to eliminate a lot of the road noise. No real reason to connect to the car, phone can read incoming texts if you want it to Maps & Here run off the phone's screen with voice directions coming through my BT earpiece.
    Even though I drive a late model vehicle, I much prefer using Google Maps on my phone. I wish auto-manufacturers would just let you mirror your phone's screen onto the car's infotainment system. Would be nice, although the Note's big screen is sufficient enough for me not to think it too big a necessity.


    Just in case some of you are looking to keep your new toy from jostling around in your car, here's a pic of a car mount that works well with the Note's huge size. About the only drawback is having to remove the unit if you need to insert a CD, granted I don't know of many people that still use their CD players in their cars. The device is a Mountek CD mount and typically sells for under $15.00. I've bought 2 in the past 5 months as I left one in a rental car once on a business trip.

    I agree with the Mountek being great. Don't currently use a mount, but had previously used it for the last 2 years.

    Is that an auto-manufacturer or a Note 4 application? I'm guessing it's an auto-manufacturer's feature since they would have to provide the hardware on their side given that the Note already has that feature built in.

    I have a 2014 Nissan Altima. My Note 3 worked perfectly for music and phone calls.

    However since getting my Note 4, "Play Music" works fine, but phone calls are not working via Bluetooth.

    I deleted all phones from the in-car Bluetooth settings and reset my phone several times with no luck.

    In my 2013 toyota highlander, playing google play music through bluetooth worked but when I used the car control to skip a song it stopped playing. Showed still playing on the phone. Will have to try to delete the pairing and try it new today. My note 2 worked perfectly.

    I ran some unscientific tests this morning. I found that I need to restart my phone and then phone calls will work via Bluetooth.

    Once I turn off and restart the car, phone calls stop working with Bluetooth. The phone shows Bluetooth is connected, but no sound comes from the speakers, etc.

    If I restart the phone (car still running) then phone calls start working again.

    This is mighty inconvenient to have to restart my phone everytime I get in my car just to use the phone with Bluetooth.. Ugh

    Works fine with both my car and my wife's, although I should say that my car only has the hands-free calling BT protocol implemented, not stereo audio. So I have to use the auxiliary input. I'm not keen on getting a third-party solution such as GoGroove because I believe I'd have to use that for calling as well, and I prefer to use the one built in to my car.

    As to mounting, far, far better than the CD slot or suction cup solution is ProClip. The holders are custom made for specific devices. And if you use a case, they have a range of universal holders that you can tweak to custom fit the case.

    This was my old Note 2, but it gives an idea of the ProClip and the Note series in general:

    It's weird, actually. I've got a 2014 Kia Soul and the Note 3 would always have the voice saying that it was syncing my contacts and that the phone might prompt me. Every single time I started it up it would say that, even though there was never a prompt on the phone. And the bluetooth controls seemed weirdly delayed. Sometimes I'd press the Next button on the steering wheel and it wouldn't skip a song for a good thirty seconds. But now with the Note 4, it's perfect. It prompted me the first time and after I said yes, the voice hasn't come back since. It just connects to Bluetooth and plays music like it should. It even recognized that I got a text message once, which it never did with the Note 3.

    My note 4 connects to my car but steering wheel controls don't work and the cars display doesn't show album/song/artist info. My s5 always worked perfectly with my 2014 prius. Weird.

    Do you use the bluetooth streaming for music? I have the same set up and when I set it up first I had both music and text showing next to the device. Shut car off and next day all I had was the texting part no music symbol.

    Have u had any issues with the "bluetooth share stopped working" error message with the N4? I know on my S4 the 4.4.2 update broke my ability to stay connected to my bluetooth. Whenever I respond to a text message after receiving it thru my car, the bluetooth share error comes up and disconnects my bluetooth. It will automatically reconnect but when I am streaming music it is quite annoying.

    what kind of errors do you get? Just unable to connect/unable to find errors? The reason I figured I'd create this thread is so we could get a decent registry of what works and what doesn't but to see if we can help each other out.

    How many other bluetooth devices do you have paired? You can try deleting all items and clearing your bluetooth cache.
