Samsung S10 or Pixel 3 BT issues

So I upgraded my phone from the Samsung S8 to an S10 and was really disappointed to see that the new phone was absolutely unable to hold a consistent BT connection with my 2016 DS. Have seen other posts on the internet indicating people having similar issues with other car manufacturers. Assuming it was a phone issue, I ordered a Pixel 3 only to find the same issue with the DS.

Anyone else encounter this problem. Looking at the Vehicles - Landrover it does say that the newer phones are not supported. Was wondering if anyone has run into this before and what their resolution was.

With the s10 if you go into the BT settings on the disco and unpair for phone, leaving music only, the streaming will stay on. If you want hands free for phone, I have not tried the opposite (unpair for music leaving phone only), so I can't comment on that.

I think it's an issue with the bluetooth stack on these newer devices, as I have issues with my s10 and the head unit on my other vehicle whereas I had no trouble with my previous phone, LG G4. Good luck.

I just got the Discovery Sport July 13th. I have this issue with a Samsung Note 9. I called the dealer and they said they are expecting a software update next week. They will call me to download. Hopefully, that will fix it.

I was researching bluetooth connection issues and found a YouTube video for android. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...UXRF-Z5zZxU0g1

This has worked for me. At least for the day I was even streaming music to test for disconnections.

Same issue with Pixel2. I was able to fix BT drops/disconnects by adjusting my phone system's (Android 9) BT settings:

settings -> system -> advanced -> developer options (requires unlock) -> scroll down to BT settings and choose AVRCP 1.6, LDAC codec set to adaptive bit rat, all other BT settings default.

Same problem when i got mine 2015 used with a s9+

Fixed by installing the app 'bluetooth phonebook' from the play store as suggested by someone on here. No idea why but it worked.

Had the same issue with Samsung Note 8. This issue is ongoing and apparently impacts Samsung and some other android based devices. The dealer has blamed Samsung for it. There are also threads on Samsung support for similar issues with the BT.

I wouldn't wait for a fix from either Samsung or Land Rover. Apparently its an issue since 2014. The "next week fix" explanation has been given to me since April 2019 when I got my car.
@dbldangertilt and @adhunt99 will try both your suggestions. Hope it works.
