Flaky Bluetooth... Confused it?
Hi all. In some respects this issue is going to be dealt with, but am posting to see if others have had the same experience.
Just picked up my new f56 with visual boost and Bluetooth. When I collected the car from the showroom the Bluetooth refused to work. We tried this on various phones. I have a windows phone, but we tried it on android and iPhones to no avail.
So I drove it home knowing that I would bee booked in to be looked at. I bought the car from a garage further away, but the same franchise as my local showroom (better deal) which is the reason I drove the car away as I didn't want another 150 mile round trip.
The odd thing was on the way back I collected my son from school. I got back into the car and Bluetooth worked!
I should explain that the fault is that the Bluetooth hangs on 'please wait' and the phone book etc. can't be loaded... Neither can music. From my phone side it lists the mini as connectable but doesn't or can't establish a connection.
So, all fine and dandy for a few days until today. I had my phone connected and made three stops. As they were quick stops I kept my phone in the car and turned off the engine, locked doors and did my stuff. I was at for a matter of minutes. On the first two occasions the phone reconnected and continued with the podcast I had playing. On the last occasion the Bluetooth option wouldn't connect at all. Tried turning car on and off, restarting phone etc. but to no avail. Visual boost sticks on 'please wait' and the phone doesn't connect with voice or music or phone book.
Definitely something wrong, and a pain as its intermittent, so will be booked in but was wondering if anyone else has had this issue?
