    It was opposite for me. When my Droid was on 2.1 it would not connect to my Mercedes. Once I got the 2.2 it did randomly. I have recently switched to the Droid 2 which come stock with the 2.2 and it pairs perfectly with the BT in my MB. I am not sure about the root thing because I am not rooted. The 2.2 OTA might have done something to your BT sensor.

    Have you tried to unpair your phone and re-pair it?

    There have been instances where it won't pair if the screen is locked (doesn't happen to me though).

    I have a 2009 3 series and it pairs with the car fine...
     
  4. Hmm.. Will try it out :|

    Well, I spoke too soon. Tonight my car didn't pair right away. I turned on the phone after I turned on the car. I had to turn off the car's BT, then turn it back on to get it to pair...odd I responded to this today and it happened to me tonight. :)

    Software updates on my Bimmer always mess around with my gadgets, not just my phone.

    If you recently got one for your E9X, that may be the problem. Do other Bluetooth devices pair? If you have an earpiece, does that pair to your Droid? Gotta troubleshoot it that way.

    BTW, 2.2 pairs fine to both our 08 and '10 Bimmers.
