Thank you!!!!! Deleting my Samsung s9 from my list of phones, then turning off my car and turning it back on again worked! I clicked on the device on my cell, then it asked me for my passcode, which was on my car's navigation screen.
Thank you so very much!!!
My new S9 won't autoconnect either.
I have tried the suggestions earlier in the forum, but with no luck.
I am trying to connect to a Mercedes Bluetooth unit AND my Kenwood car sterio. I can connect manually, but when I leave the car and come back, it will NOT auto connect and I have to connect manually (kind of defeats the safety purpose of hands free driving). I have spent 2 hours with Samsung support (deleting network settings, clearing Bluetooth cache/storage, unparing/repairing, etc.), I even downloaded the Samsung "Smart Tutor" app allowing Samsung support to access my phone, but still with no luck!
My old S6 would auto connect every time.
Also, my contacts on the S9 would NOT download to the Mercedes, despite saying "downloading" when manually connected? I have contacts "allowed" on my S9, but they do not download.
On the Mercedes, I can't find where to delete device (and then attempt to re pair the phone). Regardless, it doesn't auto connect in the Kennwood either!
I believe this is a BUG rather than a settings issue, or "glitch" as Samsung support stated.
I have also been having connectivity issues with the Galaxy S9 and my 2012 Prius.
Samsung Galaxy S9 SM-G9600
This was a problem with the S8 as well.
Every time I talk to the folks at Samsung, they say that there is no known problem.
Clearly, as is indicated by the entries in this blog, this is not a one off, isolated problem.
Samsung needs to fix the issue.
I am tired and frustrated with the run around I am getting.
I noticed with my verizon s8 and so that if my wifi is on while driving, the bluetooth will disconnect from the car (12 subaru impreza)
I also cqnt get onn bluetooth headphones to pair with my s9 or my tab a but works fine with my s9 🤬🤬🤬🤬
I had the no auto connect problem with my new sgs9+ and my 2013 Subaru outback. I found this forum and read about using all voice commands to pair the two. It has worked for me. Now auto connect works.
I have a Sony DSXA410BT Mechless Media Receiver with NFC, and it does when it want to pick up my S9, but it can them disconnect.
Has anyone got any advice on what i could do please, because i know its not my mobile as it connects to other devices no problem.
Phone will not auto connect to my cars radio to play media music files when i turn on the car. it will allow me to connect manually when i go into the phone settings after abouta minute of the car on idle.
it also will have many issues with staying connected with telephone calls when dialing out or recieving a call. i either have to get the person to call me back or sometimes if i toggle the bluetooth on and off it will allow me to connect.
i have a JVC - KW-R92OBTS Stereo which is not allownig me to connect the media files and drops phone calls.
and the second cari have which is a 2008 acura RDX with a stock radio system will allow it to auto-connect HOWEVER it will constantly drop the calls as i said earlier.
i've never had any issues like this in either cars with the LG G5, Samsung S7 Edge iphone 4,5 and 6s
ive already dissconnected the bluetooth and reconnected it to both cars and that does not work.
i've also applied the smartlock onto the device and that does not work either.
i still have a few days to return the phone if i choose too however i would much prefer to stick with android then make the switch to iPhone... these issues are small but very important for everyday use as i do not want to fiddle with the phone while im driving to make phone calls.
im connected via Rogers in Toronto ON.
