I have the same issues with you on a Honda Civic (MY15, Sport Edition, 1.6 i-DTEC). The bluetooth connection interrupts while on a call, but it works fine when I stream music from the mobile phone. I have read several forum posts about the mobile phone that I use (Huawei P10 Lite), which probably has some issues with the bluetooth module when connected on a car multimedia system. Also, I did not have any issues when I was using an old LG smart phone.
From my experience I have found some patterns on the behavior of the bluetooth connection:
1.) Initially the phone connects fine with Honda Connect.
2.) If I don't get any call, the bluetooth connection stays up & running without any issues.
3.) If I stream music, the connection works fine.
4.) If I call someone or receive a call, the bluetooth connection is unstable and may drop.
5.) If the bluetooth connection drops then I cannot get it work again unless I disable / enable the module on the phone and stop / start the engine of the car (!).
6.) On the second connection, the bluetooth seems to operate quite well.
This issue is quite irritating and to be honest, I try to avoid speaking on the phone while driving.
Finally, the dealer didn't apply any software update on the Connect system yet, although I have mentioned it to them.
