    So, I wasn't able to connect to anything with my new s8, tried my 2012 Honda Odyssey and my Bose Mini Speaker. Nothing.

    Then inspired by another thread that mentioned things getting messed up in the transfer from the old phone to the new, I went into: Settings>Connections>More Connection Settings>Reset Network Settings
    And did a full reset of the network settings, now everything works.

    Hope this helps others...

    I don't have that option either. I DID try adding the bluethooth in my car to 'Trusted Devices". Maybe that will fix it.

    Apparently Samsung is supposed to be sending out a software update to fix the Bluetooth issue.

    NOT FAST ENOUGH!

    Got my s8 on April 20th still can't listen to audio on my Clarion nx602!

    Hi I have Ford and every two months need to reset my bluetooth device in order to make it work properly. The way to do it is to disconect fuse number 10 and put it back or disconect your battery. Trust me it works. I do recommend to reconnect the fuse tho. When I got my s8 had troubles to find my device as well. I did switch off and on Bluetooth icon on my phone few times. After while it flash on me and all works great.

    I got a Sprint Samsung update and now my S8+ connects and stays connected. I did nothing different. Can't say for sure the update did it but it works now.

    I have a 2013 Subaru Outback. No issues so far. Also works great on my Jaybird X3's and my Plantronics Voyager Legend.
    I am having MAJOR issues with my 2013 Outback. My Jaybird X2s work great. I have a black S8+ on Verizon and a 2013 Outback Premium. What is your setup?

    I'm having issues with my galaxy s8+, bluetooth is distorted whilst using it on calls and playing music which is very annoying. My car is an Audi Q7 2013, last phone S6 worked perfectly.

    Hey all just wondering if anyone else is having bluetooth issues with the s8. Just got mine yesterday and it connects to my car stereo just fine but for some reason it only picks it up as call audio only and does not let me play any media off of it. Anyone having similar issues and have a fix?
    Same exact problem, but with BMW 2006 330i. T-Mobile was not able to help. They think the BMW Bluetooth software may not be compatible with Samsung never Bluetooth. Unfortunately, no resolution at the moment.

    My Verizon S8 connects perfectly to my Bose Sound Touch 10 and a screen popped up asking me if I wanted the phone to sync and control the total volume of the phone and Sound Touch. I accepted the screen and it works perfectly. Samsung has put a lot of thought into engineering the hardware and software of this phone,

    What make and model of car do you own? Some models use BT for phone calls only. I rented a Jeep that wouldn't use BT for media. Did your previous phone play music via BT?

    I just started having the same problem with only call audio pairing with my Bluetooth on my Kenwood deck. It had been working perfectly for a month until yesterday. This is extremely frustrating. I hope Samsung will address this issue immediately

    Syncs to audio and Bluetooth in my 2016 Chevy Sonic LT with no issues. I do have to select Bluetooth from my touch screen on vehicle radio screen to enable it.

    POSSIBLE FIX...
    Vehicle
    2009 Mini Cooper S Clubman

    Tried to pair multiple times but phone would not give passcode. Both phone and car would timeout. In frustration I tried a passcode of 123456 for kicks. I finally got a response from phone and car. Looked at my phone and it says to try 0000 or 1234 for the pass code. Tried all 0's and it connected. I tested it and it works fine now. Was about to go return and get a IPhone. $800 pho e should be able to connect to bluetooth. Lol. Hope this helps some....
