So I've tried every recommendation so far and no luck. The new Disco Sport will connect and disconnect continuously and is now driving me crazy.
Taking it in to Land Rover service on Tuesday so hoping to get some idea on when a fix is due, and perhaps updating to Android Auto.... I'm not confident though.
Land Rover can't fix it at the moment, so they tell me. Try putting the blue tooth setting, Dual audio 'on' which should turn off the media volume sync option off automatically. Do this in conjunction with the previous advice. Doesnt work perfectly but has helped alot.
Same problem with 2017 landrover discovery and note 9, brand new phone last month connected fine for about 3 says then did automatic update and not connected properly since.
Solved for me!
2016 Discovery Sport
Samsung S10, Android 9, Kernel 4.14.85-15820661 (Apr 16 update), security patch level April 2019.
I did the following:
1. Bluetooth advanced settings, dual audio on (volume and ringtone sync off).
2. Developer settings, changed PBAP version to 1.1 and turned multiple PBAP properties off.
3. Unpair car from phone, and remove phone from car.
4. Initiate a new pairing with the phone, and when asked I allowed only contact sync, not messages sync.
No problems since, both phone and music connected. I do not know exactly which of those changes made it work, or combination thereof. I don't dare lab with that haha! Hope that helps!
For me and my S10+ this setting solved the bluetooth connecting problem with my Land Rover Discovery Sport 2018 as well! Thank you very much @Schofres .
(I tried all suggested solution and not one was working. Your solution is the only one which is stable for me. Tested over whole weekend and the BT connection ist now stable within my Land Rover Discovery Sport 2018 and Samsung S10+ with Android 9.0 Pie)
@Radu2020 have you set the other values as well?
Not only PBAP needs to be set, the other params as well.
Just to document for others. Maybe this fix is really just for S10/S10+ owners.
This worked for my S9 with the Discovery Sport, with a few tweaks so thanks! I didn't have an option in s9 settings to choose the PBAP version, but there was an option to change the codec type right above the other option. My fix was to pick BT LDAP codec one version previous (13) of current selection, and turned off all automatic selection options and picked the middle ones. (Speed, quality, etc.)
