The app didn't work for me. Is there some specific setting you used?
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.
Finally got the app to work as well changing the settings as well.
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?

Doesn't seem to be relevant. I am connecting through the OEM radio system, and my old Thunderbolt paired (and stayed paired) just fine. Not sure what the solution is still.
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.
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?
need some help my gs4 keeps disconecting with my bluetooth in my truck its a pioneer systeme with bt200 bluetooth my gs3 was fine any help would be great
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. :wavey:
I merged your thread with the bluetooth thread. Maybe you can find an answer here.
It's a miracle. Phone received an android update this morning and the problem is gone.
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.
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.
