    New to the forums and glad I found this thread..thought I'm the only one with this problem.

    So, I have a 2006 Lexus GS 430 and my phone is a Galaxy Note 2 N7100, bluetooth was working perfectly fine with no problems whatsoever on Android 4.2.2, two weeks ago I upgraded to the leaked Android 4.3 for the N2 and I'm having problems with not being able to hear from the car's speakers and sometimes I get intermittent connections.

    This really sucks as I was hoping to get the Note 3, but since Android 4.3 has problems with my car's bluetooth then no chance for that

    I just bought a 2011 Kia Sorento yesterday and my boyfriend is able to pair his Galaxy Note 3 without a hitch but I can't pair my Galaxy S4. It doesn't show my car when I turn on the bluetooth and look for nearby devices. PLEASE tell me there is a solution to this???

    i've got a 2011 camaro. When my S4 was on 4.1 or 4.2.2 i could pair phone audio and bluetooth music at the same time. now, it's a struggle to get the bluetooth music to play music if the phone audio is connected- essentially, when i connect both the phone and bluetooth music profiles, the phone is setting the phone audio as the sound output, and making it not go over the car audio. ... I also can duplicate this problem with some Motorola bluetooth headphones, though, so it's not the car in my case. it's a conflict between the two bluetooth profiles --- so now that I went and posted this, I think I have it fixed. I connected the phone to my headphones, both Media and call audio profiles. as suspected, i can't hear the audio playing in the google music app. I rebooted the phone, and now, after it restarted, and connected to both BT profiles again, it's working as it should. at least for now, so if you have trouble getting the audio output working, may connect everything like it is "supposed" to be and reboot the phone once.

    MY s4 19505 has started dropping the calls from the car speakers back to the phone speaker, if I switch the handset Bluetooth off and switch the phone to its speaker to try and continue the call the phone after a minute or so drops back to its speaker again. This happens in a number of different vehicles I use . I initially thought it was the power saving mode but I've made sure that isn't enabled. I've got no power saving app installed either, any ideas? All this technology 4 g etc and I'm back to using my wire ear phones

    Following all of these threads on in car connectivity hassles. Just loaded
    KitKat and in the bluetooth part I find a message on Bluetooth Smart Connectivity
    which switches bluetooth off to save energy ( like your car at the traffic lights).
    Could this be a cause? There's an app 'Bluetooth Auto Connect' that seems to override this.

    BTW same problems with my N4 and KitKat.

    Prius 2013 and Galaxy S4 ATT 4.2.2 Music and phone have a lot of weird things going on. Never had problems with iphone4. I like android, I like having a phone screen bigger than the iphone and the openness of android. But the car and phone don't work well together, I guess because of the bluetooth confusion.

    This is an email I sent Hyundai Canada with a simple solution the Genesis pairing issue by simply changing the passkey to 0000 from the factory default of 1234. Hope this helps a lot of you.

    A member at the Genesis owners forum found the solution to the issue with the pairing via Bluetooth of your Genesis sedan 2011 and 2012 and any Samsung Galaxy S4 smart phone.

    By simply changing the passkey from the standard 1234 to 0000 the issue is resolved.

    My Galaxy S 4 now works like a charm hands free via Bluetooth and sync's fine as well.

    This is the post:

    Samsung Galaxy S4 bluetooth connectivity - Page 7 - Hyundai Genesis Forum

    Please update and make this information available to Hyundai Worldwide as many of your current Genesis owners are probably very frustrated, and this simple solution should be readily available to them if they call customer service. Better yet why not issue a World Wide service bulletin to your dealers as well.

    Please let us know what you decide to do with this important finding.

    My S4 will not voice dial with my Kenwood DPX500BT receiver unless it is unlocked. It receives calls fine and will voice dial when the phone is unlocked. I have contacted both Kenwood and Samsung and no one has a answer. Anybody?

    The first time I paired my S4 with my 2013 Chevy Malibu the MyLink system saw and played the MP3's from my phone, album art and all. However after that first pairing, MyLink does not see my MP3's. Pandora works fine (and also phone calls). But no music from my collections. I guess I should try re-pairing. But I hate to think I need to do that each time.

    I read that GM has a free update available for their bluetooth. It come via OnStar. You need to hit the Onstar button and ask the operator for a 30 day free trial because you want the free BT update. That should solve your problem. Good Luck
    Is this "update" automatic (I have OnStar active in my 2013 Malibu) or do you have to request it?

    It depends on the blue tooth versions and usually if they have built in things geared twards apple it's most likely a standard apple controls (they try to control everything)

    I have had a similar issue. I have an S4 and my car has an in built bluetooth. It was working fine for the first 8 months but now suddenly my cars bluetooth make random phone calls to unknown numbers (mostly nos 0) and when I check the phone log it does not show any such calls. This has become a big nuisance and I tried all possibilities to rectify this mistake but it still persits. Do not know what to do? Anyone has encountered such situations

    I just got the new Galaxy S4. Had the Nexxus before and the bluetooth worked perfectly in my 2011 camaro. The new one will not see my music at all. It will bluetooth with my phone audio, but the Google play music app and Pandora will not connect. How can I fix this? I would not have gotten the S4 if I had known as I use my phone for all my music. I think I should have gotten the IPhone instead. Is there a patch that I can get to solve this issue?

    My wife will be returning an S4 tomorrow, as it is not compatible with her 2014 Jetta. Everyone I called, Samsung, AT&T, and unfortunately my VW dealer will not get back with me, all place the blame on each other.

    My wife bought the S4 and we called AT&T, Samsung etc... and they kept passing the buck back to each other and she finally returned it, much to the dismay of the AT&T rep. Her IT guy at her job did some research about an APP that might fix it, or an update from AT&T that fixes it for some.
    Any ideas will be helpful, and we may go back and get the phone if we feel safe with a FIX for it??
    Her issue is not pairing, it would pair, but she couldn't use her speed dial on her 2014 Jetta touchscreen, and sending and recieving calls worked sometimes, and not sometimes.

    Mine sometimes works when I have Google voice open, but recently it won't work at all. How do you manually initiate transfer?

    I am having EXACTLY the same problem with my new Samsung Galaxy S4 and my Honda CR-V. Up until the upgrade from S2 to S4, I had no problems with the Bluetooth pairing. Now, it pairs, but the phone dial on the car screen and the speed dial hang up immediately. If I use the phone to make the call, it does to the bluetooth, and the bluetooth shows the correct number I attempted to call, and the call goes through. However, it immediately hangs up if I make the call using the Car's Speed Dial or the phone history or the phone directory.

    Anybody have a fix?
    I tried deleting the phone and re-connecting it and re-programming the speed dials and it still didn't work. Really upset about this... and getting ready to return the phone.

    There is a setting under SETTINGS, Bluetooth, that allows you to check auto transfer to bluetooth if call is initiated on phone. Look for that....

    I have a 2014 Genesis. My phone sporadically works with the blue tooth, but it somehow jams up the phone where it connects to the person I am calling, but I hear nothing and on their end they hear nothing as well. Same happens on incoming calls. I wound up having to re-boot the phone and shut off blue tooth in order to be able to use the phone. Did all the usual stuff with Verizon, including replacing the phone, but it is not the phone.

    And my car dealer says to check with Samsung. so there I am around and around but no fix!
    I have a Samsung S3 and a 2015 Nisan Altima. Anyone here found a fix. My car recognizes numbers but not any names from my phone book. It says name not recognized or suggests every other name but the one I want or it just dials any random number.
    The service techy had no problems with his IPhone on my car.

    Anyone here found a fix for this?
