With my iphone 5, it almost never catches the connection off the first go. I don't know if its taking longer to connect or what, but I would say 4 out of 5 times I have to go into the settings and manually engage the connection or at worst turn off bluetooth and turn it back to get it to pick it up again.
Its fairly frustrating. Gone are the days where I could get into the car and have my Sync pick up my iphone music seamlessly.
Any tips?
Hey, WolframNHart -

Certain phones are known to hold the best connection when they're Reverse Paired. Instead of the usual process where your phone finds SYNC, SYNC will find your phone. Before doing this, you'll want to remove SYNC from your phone's list of Bluetooth devices and perform a Master Reset on the system. Instructions for both processes are below.

Master Reset:

Reverse Pairing:

Let me know if this helps or if you have additional questions.
