Default How to Keep a Bluetooth Music Receiver "Connected" with car?

I got a Bluetooth Music Receiver that plugs into my car's RCA and I can play music from my s4 or iphone 5 wirelessly BUT I have to go into Settings and "Connect" the paired belkin unit each time I start the car. Why is it my car's bluetooth for phone calls stays paired and connected but the Music Receiver looses connection and requires a button push to enable each time?

Amazon.com: Belkin F8Z492TTP Bluetooth Music Receiver: MP3 Players & Accessories

Thanks, Shane

You bought the wrong Bluetooth receiver. Should have bought this one: Amazon.com: Kinivo BTC450 Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit for Cars with Aux Input Jack (3.5 mm) - supports aptX: MP3 Players & Accessories

It's the best one out there right now. Check out the reviews.

Added on edit: The problem is with the Belkin receiver not the phone.

I can't imagine that one being any better if it turns off and runs out of a charge eventually when my car is off. when my car is off the cig. lighter doesn't charge, so if I hot wired it to a fuse that was Constant, that would make my Belkin never disconnect or turn off, correct?

It's got nothing to do with power but with how the device is designed and the firmware implemented. Read the reviews on Amazon for both your device and the one I listed and you will see there is a difference. Read about the problems people are having with the devices. A little research goes a long way. Not all devices are created equally. I'm not trying to be snide...I'm just saying that some products work better than others...and the reviews will generally tell the whole story.

Right got it, makes sense was just trying to see if the device had constant power would it stay connected and it doesnt look like it. I'll take a look at the Kinivo thanks.

Cool

shanezam203, please do update with results if you go with a different receiver.

I purchased a new receiver capable of the hands free and audio bluetooth connectivity while still using the original Galaxy S. This would pair to both automatically. Now, with the S4, only the HFP connects and I have to manually connect the audio. I've already spent too much time resetting/restarting and trying endless combinations to get both or even only the audio to connect automatically as it did with the former phone. It's bologna.

With my truck, for everything to work properly, you have to pair the phone as an audio device, then the hands free phone portion will work as well. If you go the other way, the bluetooth audio never works like it should. Try pairing the audio first and see what happens.

I can try that, just strange the Bluetooth for my phone calls always stays connected. so you are saying delete both.

then 1st pair the Belkin receiver?
Then pair the car bluetooth for calls?

Sierra255 - I am thankful for any and all suggestions to get my system working so thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I've tried just that, probably 6 times now

I don't mean to threadjack shanezam203's post, but we could be having the same issue for all I know.

I have a Clarion CX501 bluetooth/mp3 receiver bought through Crutchfield. It has its own "auto connect" enable/disable but does not allow for specification between the HFP or A2DP profile. My goal is to simply have a successful automatic bluetooth connection between my car receiver and phone shortly after ignition. This worked for the original Galaxy S, but does not for the S4. I have attempted the following so far:
1. In all cases: unpaired car receiver device from my Galaxy S4's bluetooth settings
2. In all cases: deleted my car receiver's saved connections to the phone and audio pairings
3. Changed receiver's bluetooth code
4. Enabled/disabled receiver's auto-connect
5. Paired only the A2DP profile, only to find on next start that it auto-connects only to the HFP profile... every time.
6. Attempted a car/bluetooth auto connect app on the phone - close, but still requires me to take some manual action (plug in device to USB charger or disconnect/connect bluetooth in order to automate the A2DP connection).

I think my next step will be to factory reset the receiver. The very first time I paired the two devices, I did choose the HFP before audio. So for all I know it still has some data saved related to that.

If there are any other suggestions I'm open to hear them.

Which app was that, if you don't mind?

Yes. But since you're working with two different things (Belkin receiver and hands-free from the car), they could be fighting with each other. And from my experience, bluetooth audio can be extremely frustrating. I fought with my GS2 for months before I got it working with any regularity. And then, it still wasn't perfect. The hands-free phone worked great from the start. My next mission is to figure out how to do voice dialing through my truck. I can't for the life of me determine how to get my contacts to upload to my truck. I know it can, I just don't know how to get it to work.

My iPhone and GS2 both worked well with my Subaru factory stereo. However, the GS4 only auto-connects voice and not audio, so I have to select it manually every time I start the car. After reading the posts here and on another forum, it sounds like the issue is on the phone side, not stereo (or BT headset).

We need updated firmware from Samsung.

I just loaded that app and it cleared up my Media Streaming problem I had.

THANKS!

That's the exact same issue I'm having and my first thought as well.. Perhaps it is a problem with the phone after all, especially if I'm not the only one experiencing this.

I will try this solution. As a side note, when I clicked the link and read about the app, I found out that you can install it on your device(s) remotely. So I didn't even have to pick up my phone, it just went there automatically! This is a new-to-me feature of Android.

Thanks!

I am having the exact same issue also. My Sony in my truck worked with S3 automatically turning on phone and media when i started the car. But with S4 it is only doing the phone.

That may be it, because my s3 was the same way. I will try it with my iPhone 5 also and then JUST the Belkin and no hands free audio and see if that stays connected.

Default Having to re-pair bluetooth to car and music player each time

Every time I get in my car, I have to re-pair my car (phone) and bluetooth music player to my phone each time. My old iPhone 4S would just automatically connect to both if I left bluetooth on. How can I get my S4 to do this? It's not a HUGE deal, but it is kind of annoying having to turn off (if on) and on my bluetooth then pair them to the two devices each time I get in my car. Someone please educate me, thanks.

Now there are multiple threads about BT connectivity in this forum and another one that rhymes with central. This guy that made the BT app is about to get a lot more users unless Samsung patches it quick!

This issue is popping up a lot now with different car makers, headsets, etc...the only common denominator is GS4. It probably has a bug that needs to be corrected by an update.

In the meantime, there are folks recommending a bluetooth app from the Play Store. I have not used it myself (will try when I get to my car later) so I don't want to recommend it just yet, but thought I could mention it. Check in another thread about bluetooth music for more details.

I tried deleting all the devices on my car bluetooth except for my new phone. That did the trick for auto-connecting to the car (phone). Now the bluetooth media on the other hand, no such luck yet. I'll try out that app later and see if it works for me.

The app worked for me, just set it to connect audio when you unlock the phone.

Also, I don't see any battery drain or conflicts with the app, so I recommend people use it until we get a patch from Samsung/carrier.

So the app didn't work for me without changing up some settings. I spent about 10 minutes messing around with it and finally got it to work. Now my phone connects to both car voice and bt media. I had to change the "Settings Screen Action" to "Enable Bluetooth." Also, I unchecked "Set Last Device" and made sure the bt media device was first on the list for priority.

Kind of pathetic I had to go through this when all I had to do with my iPhone 4S (2 years old now) was get in my car with bluetooth enabled.

Default Bluetooth will not stay paired with car

I have a 2012 Honda Odyssey and 2010 Volvo S80. In both cars my S4 will pair with the car via bluetooth, but within seconds it will disconnect (sometimes just after a call has started). Thus it pairs just fine, but does not stay paired. What can be done here? The S4 is not a recognized device for Honda or Volvo yet apparently. This has to be remedied, right? Anyone have a workaround in the meantime?

Did you read the entire thread? Try this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.myklos.btautoconnect&hl=en

Also, delete all the devices on your car's bluetooth device list. Then, re-pair your S4.

Default Short update to my issue

As a quick followup to my own situation. I did follow through with a factory reset of my car receiver, then proceeded to only connect my phone as A2DP, to no avail. The automatic connection still seems restricted to only HFP. I have to echo the rest of my forum-mates here, that there is some bug with this device and whether it is Samsung or Android's misdoing I'm not sure.

I too, went ahead and re-installed the same app I recommended earlier on... better than nothing, although it would be nice if it completely automated the A2DP connection process instead of requiring a user-enacted trigger (screen unlock or power connection). I did write a review to the app page, suggesting this full automation.

Officially, is there not an option we can take to contact customer service or to notify the responsible party of just such a bug?

There are already a number of threads dealing with this issue. You may want to scroll down and find them or use the search. Not to belittle your problem but there is no sense in having 10 threads all discussing the same problem.

Hi ron.

I merged your thread with the bluetooth thread. Maybe you can find an answer here.

I have a Tunelink receiver, plus my stereo has bluetooth for phone calls only. And I'm experiencing what you guys are. It automatically connects a lot of the time. Especially if I'm getting in the car for the first time that day. But then when I go somewhere and get back in the car a few minutes later, it will usually just connect to one or the other. So I toggle off Bluetooth on the quick toggles, then turn it back on, the pop up comes up and I select each device, wait a few seconds, then hit the back button.

I'm going to look at that app that one of you posted.

Space-- which carrier are you on? I haven't applied my update yet.

Glad at least someone came out of this with a solution, hehe.
Exactly the advice I was looking for--problem with Subaru and S4. Thanks to both of you!

Update: It worked today. I was in and out of the car about 5 times without issue. I did though recently receive a minor update from Verizon too, so maybe that was it.

I'm on Sprint.

As another note, once the Android update was found to fix the root problem, I went ahead and uninstalled that Bluetooth Autoconnect, as I had it triggered to auto-connect whenever the screen turned on and this actually would disrupt Pandora playback, causing songs to stop and the app to sometimes strangely sink into the background.
