Pairing your Android phone and your car’s media system via Bluetooth is of great use, both for handsfree purposes and media streaming. But, we found reports of some awkward issues concerning playback while trying to connect Nougat 7.0 device with car media system.
Car and Android won’t connect via Bluetooth
One of the members of the XDA forum has stated that his Huawei Mate 9 can pair with his car but playback won’t start every time. He is concerned with its erratic behavior. Supposedly, phone pairs with every other device except the car.
Another member is having trouble with the similar problem. Devices can pair but, while music is playing, handsfree mode won’t react to incoming calls.
Well, there is one solution that can be of use if you have the same issue on your Android.
Swiftly delete the device from pairing list and retry
Sometimes the cure for the problem is easier than it seems. To do that follow these instructions.
1. Go to Settings > Wireless and Networks > Bluetooth
2. Turn your Bluetooth ON
3. In the list of paired devices select your car Bluetooth device
4. Select Forget
5. Then search for devices and select your car Bluetooth device
6. Tap Pair
7. If you are prompted for four digits PIN, enter it
Have in mind that some cars board computers have a special button that enables Bluetooth connection.
If this solution is not helpful, don’t worry. There is probably a bug in Nougat 7.0 that is making all this trouble. Luckily, it is said that solution will be available in a first update . Nougat 7.11 is here today so we hope that unpleasant experience with this problem has come to an end.
