    Hi my "Samsung galaxy s5" keeps dropping out when i have the bluetooth on after about 10mins

    The bluetooth connection is between my phone and Ruark M1 desktop speakers

    My phone is on version 5

    Its worse if I'm listing to a BBC podcast drops out after 5mins

    The only thing I can do to reconnect is switch speakers off at wall plus switch bluetooth of on phone then start over again

    i might be wrong, but in Bluetooth settings there is a visability time out setting, might be something to do with that

    The visibility timeout is only for when you are trying to pair with a new device, it determines how long the phone will remain visible to other BT devices so they can pair with each other. Once a device is paired with the phone that setting doesn't have any effect on operation.
    Is this happening only with this device? If so I'd delete the pairing completely from both devices and start over.
