Recently upgraded from a GS9 plus to Note 10 plus. Old phone would pair every time with no issue with Bluetooth devices, N10 connects with Bluetooth earphones but am experiencing serious issues with connection being dropped with my car (2018 Peugeot 2008) many times. Eventually connection will remain but still have GS9 without problem so presume it is specific to N10? Anyone else got problems?
I personally have not connected my N10+ 5G with a car but it's fine with the other Bluetooth Devices I've paired to.
Are you able to Google Search for a community forum of people who use your make and even model of your car and ask and search there too as someone may have found the same issues or even found a workaround @Davej3
Current Phone ~
Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G SM-N9860_256Gb SnapDragon 865+
Samsung One Ui 3.1/ Android 11.
I had the same issue pairing to my car when Samsung rolled out One UI. No problems before the update. Samsung were not very good in fixing the issue. A customer submitted a work around. Go in to Developer Options in settings and change Bluetooth PBAP Version to 1.1 from 1.2. It worked for me and now no issues. Otherwise search 'Bluetooth Issues One UI' on Community and you'll see the original post. Hope this helps and good luck
Thanks for the suggestion. When I search for "Developer options" only results returned are "Log Output level", "Show TTS output" or "Node tree debugging"? No mention of Bluetooth. Searching for bluetooth doesn't return any options along the lines you have suggested. The bug is problematic as sometimes I need to repeatedly attempt to pair before I get a permanent connection and other times it will connect without intervention. (I have a Gear S3 Frontier which is always paired, so bluetooth would "appear" to be operating fine)?
