N8 Bluetooth BMW Problem

My new Nokia N8 phone connects to my cars Bluetooth for about 80 seconds and then disconnects and reconnects after 80 seconds and seems to be stuck in this cycle constantly.
I have tried and tested several other Nokia phones and they all connect and work fine, but my N8 doesnít seem to work with the car which is a BMW 7 series, nor does it work with my wifeís BMW 3 series. Anyone else having similar issues or have a fix for this?

I have an Audi but similar connection process and same file needed when Ive had a BM. I know a few people have experienced drops but nothing like you have mentioned.

Also, I needed the N810 contacts download for the contacts to work with the dashboard reading... you might try that. Have a look at my blogpost which may help.

Could be something more serious tho with either the bluetooth module in the car connecting to the BT module from the N8 or something on the N8 itself. Good luck

Kontraband thank you very much for your reply, I followed your instruction to the word from your blogpost and after trying to connect for 15mins into my journeyÖ it had a fixed connection! There were no contacts on the idrive which didnít bother me too much. The only down side is that you have to repeat this process every time you want to connect the N8 to the cars Bluetooth :(

Hmmm, not sure about this reconnection process then... clearly that shouldnt be happening.

It certainly didnt happen with my N8. Do you have the pair set as an authorised pairing now?

Hi mate, Yes the N8 is set to authorise the cars Bluetooth. Iíve got the car booked in next week at BMW to get a software update, fingers crossed this will work.

Hi guys, My BMW went into the dealership a few days ago where they did a software upgrade on the car. Iím happy to say the Nokia N8 now pairs and is fully functional!
