Anyone having this problem? I love the BT feature both for handsfree phone use and for playing music through my iPhone. Everything was working perfectly the first few weeks, but twice in the last 3 days I've started up, headed down the road, and found that the bluetooth did not connect. Both times I ended up going through the menu to either 'pair' the phone again or 'select' the phone again. This fixed the issue, but I'd rather avoid having to go through those steps. Any idea what might be causing the hiccup?

Could it be paired with another device when you get in the car, e.g. a headset or headphones? this might cause the system not to find it in the first place? Also, bluetooth can have the signal dissrupted quite easily so the proximity of the phone could play a part, this is why they give you that nice place to put the phone, I assume this is the ideal place when connecting.

Hope this helps.

i have a slightly different issue: if i start the car first, THEN after a few minutes try to turn on bluetooth on my phone/media player, it does not connect. BUT if i always make sure i turn on bluetooth on my phone FIRST before starting the car, it always connects without a problem (so i've just gotten into that habit).

I have the same problem with BlueTooth not connecting consistently between my cellphone and the CT200h. I paired my Samsung SGH-A817 cellphone paired up with my 2012 CT200h. I set the cellphone bluetooth to automatically connect to the car when they are both powered and the visibility function to "Visible". When the cellphone's BT is connect to the CT200h's, it works beautifully per design; however, it only connects about 50% of the times. I have 2 workaround procedures which have been working pretty well: 1) Turn my cellphone off and then on, and 2) cycle the Visibility option from "Visible" to "Invisible" and back to "Visible". I will bring the car back to the dealer for more troubleshooting...
