    Bluetooth connection issue

    by hungledink ·

    I have 2 smartphones, 1 is an honor play, and the other is Samsung a22

    I connect my smartphone to my car’s entertainment unit via Bluetooth to play my music etc.

    The honor phone connects smoothly every time with no issues.

    The Samsung however, hardly connects at all. Sometimes it connects straight away, other times after several minutes and then sometimes not at all

    I’ve tried changing all sorts in the settings but all to no avail.

    Could anyone help diagnose what the issue could be?

      I wish I could tell you why but I cannot. I have a Galaxy S23 Ultra and it may connect to my truck’s phone option wirelessly via Bluetooth but other Android Auto options require a USB cable connection from phone to the truck. Have you tried this method yet? How old is your car? I am wondering if the Android Auto application might need to be updated if it hasn’t been done recently.

      The first one connected fine over wireless. The next one didn’t go wireless until I connected with some USB cable.

      While I like the idea of Android Auto, it feels half baked and not implemented the same across all car models. Both cars were from Kia.

      Check Device Compatibility: Ensure that both the Bluetooth device you’re trying to connect to (e.g., headphones, speakers, phone) and your device (e.g., smartphone, computer) support the same Bluetooth version and profile. Compatibility issues can sometimes cause connection problems.

      Enable Bluetooth and Visibility: Make sure Bluetooth is turned on and set to “visible” on your device. Some devices have a visibility setting that allows them to be seen by other nearby Bluetooth devices.

      Restart Devices: Turn off Bluetooth on both devices and then turn it back on. Additionally, try restarting both devices to clear any temporary glitches.

      Remove Pairing and Reconnect: If you’ve previously paired the devices but are experiencing issues, try removing the pairing and then reconnecting them from scratch.

      Check for Interference: Bluetooth signals can be affected by other wireless devices or physical barriers. Ensure there are no other electronic devices nearby that could interfere with the Bluetooth connection. Also, try to reduce the distance between the two Bluetooth devices.
