    Recently upgraded to an S4. Previously with my other 2 phones(Razr and Bionic) I would just hop in and if the bluetooth was on and previously paired, it would just connect. Not so much with the S4. I pair it and when I pair it in connects and everything works perfect(media audio and phone).

    Problem arises on my next trip when I get in the car. The phone has bluetooth on but it doesnt connect. Even manually going into settings and clicking for connection doesnt work. A lot of the time, the only way to make it work is to delete the BT profile in the car, unpair the phone, and start the whole process through. Really a hassle

    I have downloaded two apps(A2DP Volume and Bluetooth Autoconnect). This has made it better but not entirely fixed it. By better I mean now SOMETIMES when I get in the car it does connect but this behavior is not consistent and for the love of me I cant figure out why it's acting the way it is. It is a new car, a 2013 FR-S, so its not like the bluetooth is outdated. Plus, it worked with all my previous phones and all of my friends phones. Anyone have this issue?

    Ok, followup after playing with it some more. It seems like with my current setup in A2DP volume, I am getting some consistency. When I hop in, it usually will not connect, and when it doesnt, seems like resetting the bluetooth in the phone is doing the trick. I will report back should I continue seeing this behavior, or not maybe

    I have this same issue. I have a 2013 Hyundai Sonata. No problems with my previous phone (RAZR MAXX). Same problems you are having with S4. If anyone has figured out a solution please share it.

    I installed Bluetooth Auto Connect from the Play Store. In the app settings - Events I checked "Auto connect every time Bluetooth has been turned on." This seems to cleared the issue I was having with Bluetooth connecting to my 2013 Hyundai Sonata. App doesn't seem to have any effect on battery.
