Bluetooth problem w/ BB10

I can confirm that the new BB Z10 syncs nicely and works well (with exception of some text messaging problems).

Biggest problem for me is that the Bluetooth audio is choopy and I don't know if this is on the Z10 or the MFT end? Songs will play nicely and then periodic, annoying chops or breaks in the music. Arrrgggh! Any suggestions?

Somebody said it was the phone book data syncing with MFT and recommended turning auto sync off.

I just got my 2013 Focus Titanium with MFT.
When I stream Pandora or Slacker I get "Unknown" for Artist and song.
Is this expected behavior or am I doing something wrong?

That is all I ever got.

What kind of phone are you using kosh? slybarman I see you're using a Note 2. I don't believe the Note 2 supports pushing artist/song info over bluetooth, oddly enough. Neither does my Nexus 4, but instead of unknown it just says Nexus 4 on screen.

Your phone's implementation of BT needs to support pushing that metadata over the BT connection.

Feta, I am using a Samsung Galaxy S3. I'm thinking that if the Note 2 doesn't support it then the S3 probably doesn't either.

A lot of misinformation here. I thought I would clear up a few things. All of the Android phones that have been listed in the last few pages completely support AVRCP 1.3 and are all capable of metadata over Bluetooth. If your phone is running a version of Android 4.2 or newer, you currently do not have working Bluetooth metadata. The reason for this is because at 4.2, Android Open Source Project dropped the BlueZ stack and replaced it with the Bluedroid stack that was provided by Broadcom. The stack must now be completely reworked for the many Bluetooth chips found in all of these phones, many of which are not even Broadcom chips.

This is the reason why anyone running 4.2 or 4.2.1 has noticeably lower quality Bluetooth audio streaming. A lot of the high-end audio frequencies have distortion, and there is a lot of the low-end bass frequencies that are straight up missing. If and when you upgrade to 4.2.2, which just came out, you will notice a considerable boost overall in audio streaming over Bluetooth. The difference is large enough that you will probably have to adjust your equalizer. A large amount of the fixes that are included in 4.2.2 are specifically targeted at Bluetooth and all the problems it is having due to the new Bluedroid stack.

Unfortunately, there is still no fix for Bluetooth metadata, even with the 4.2.2 update. As a Galaxy Nexus owner whose Bluetooth metadata used to work just fine, I am really hoping this is fixed in 4.2.3.

I have a galaxy note 2 running 4.1. I get metadata when I stream an mp3 that is stored locally on the device. What we were talking about was metadata from streaming services such as pandora, slacker, or songza. My old radio - a $99 JVC would display the metadata from these streaming services, MFT does not.
