Hi all,

I have a 2013 I-dtec SE Civic bought used last March. I love the car and my iphone was connecting with Bluetooth just fine until last week when I updated io iOS 11. Let me go through what has happened. After the update my phone would automatically connect as usual but there would be a couple disconnects/connects on a 40' trip. I got annoyed and googled it and I tried the most recommended fixes like unpair/pair the phone again, reset phone network settings and reset all settings. This made things worse. The car would connect only if I delete the paired device and pair again. If I turn off the car and restart then says cannot connect to device. Contacted Apple and they suggested that I should update the car's firmware. One small detail I noticed though is that, my phone before was set as paired device no.2 on the car paired list. When I set up the phone as new it appears as no.1. But when I restart the car it defaults at no.2 again???

Any suggestions guys would be greatly appreciated

Cheers

I've seen many iOS 11 woes around various forums.

One other issue that springs to mind is the ability for one app to launch another. Probably not widely used but those who do are annoyed.

Hmmmmm! Hope I don't have any issues as I've just updated to iOS 11 today... I've read today that it can sap the life out of your battery quicker than before though.

IOS 11 is awful.

Hi Patsak, Have a 2012 2.2 DTEC ES but it's probably not that different. I used to be able to use Siri through Bluetooth but that is very flakey now as well. I really hate it when people don't discuss the problem on threads like this so sorry but I have to ask, do you connect using USB as well or just Bluetooth. I have Bluetooth always on for receiving calls etc. but I play music through USB, which gives better meta data, is independent of the phones volume and allows browsing of playlists etc. Is there a reason you don't use USB?

I find that since IOS11, i get a couple of seconds delay before siri cuts in to the audio signal and sometimes it has given up waiting by then. :frown2:

I use the Bluetooth for calls mostly, now I only use the USB port to listen to music. Taken the car to a Honda dealership and had the mechanic 30’ in the car trying to connect his phone. The bluetooth will connect as new but if I turn off and then back on again it doesn’t. He said to replace the unit, quoted £1,500 for it, said have a good day and left. He also said that there isn’t a firmware for me to update the satnav/infotainment unit. Have really bothered since, I check whenever a new Apple update comes out but still no joy.

Very frustrating

I can get my playlists up via Bluetooth. Yes cable gives more data displayed on screen but no pause function!! Bluetooth has a pause in audio screen but USB doesn't. If I need to charge phone I just plug it in but still use Bluetooth for music etc.

Do you mean switch car off and on again or Bluetooth on phone off and on again whilst still in car? I always switch my Bluetooth on before starting car, if I forget it still works but occasionally neither talk to one another so I just turn car off and on again. (Not whilst moving)
Have you tried un-pairing phone and car. Checking to see if car has memory of other Bluetooth devices and wiping them out. Then re-pairing?

Hi Red,

It’s really strange. I delete the old phone and connect the new one. It will be playing / talking fine until I turn the key off. Whenever the head unit restarts the new phone is gone from the list and the old phone appears again. I have tried everything car and phone wise. Honda asked £1500+ for a new head unit. Is there a way around this? I am not concerned about playing music as much as the hands free. Is there a way to connect an external Bluetooth through let’s say USB and still be able to use the steering wheel phone controls?

Thanks

There are after market Bluetooth phone devices that you used to plug into cigarette socket.

Have you tried deleting/ telling unit to forget old phone. Master reset of unit then connecting new phone. I take it old phone is no longer used near car?
Some units will let you add a few phones but only connects to one. Have you told unit new phone is main connection.

Well, I'm out of ideas. You are in a pickle. Besides get a branch from a nearby tree and threatening to give it a damn good thrashing.

But, have you told your old phone to forget the car. Switch Bluetooth on and look for car. Delete it then check your new phone has the car in its memory, I'm guessing it does. You could try deleting it and starting again.
