After update [] Bluetooth connectivity to my Car system was limited -missing phonebook, call history etc. This was fixed in update 7. BUT now my Jolla loses it's connection to my Car bluetooth system all the time. Usability is terrible and it freezes my car's media center totally. Before this update connectivity was working but missing a lot basic features. Now the features is there but usability is totally gone. (Volvo V60 y:2011)

Sencond issue is sound quality witch is poor ar very place sensitivity. Can't understand that there is still phones where bluetooth is this poor as this is. I also have a bluetooth headset witch works for 900 meters from each other, but this phone does not work in the car in extreme short distances.

I also get this problem on my Volvo Xc70 y:2013. Access to call lists and adress book now works, and also playback of music runs fine without dropouts, but when in "standby" the connection is lost frequently, sometimes every 2 minutes.

Yep - thats the case. This made my phone un-usable in my car. The bluetooth connection sound quality is terrible and extreamly sensitive how your phone is positioned. I have to move around my Jolla to get noise free sound out of my car system. I'm starting to be a extreamly frustrated with this. Now I also have huge problems with my email client (Exchange) and huge battery consumption - that means that all what I need for bussiness use is broken...

Still waiting for any fix of this issue.Looks that all the major radio networks has huge problems, WiFi, Mobile and Bluetooth (NFC not). Sound quality is terrible and extremly sensitive in witch position you have the phone. I started to look for new Windows phone because this phone is &%*t. Sorry about this, but when basic features fails like this - the phone is s?)(!

Sound quality is fine in my case, and it makes no difference where in the car (or in my pocket) the phone is at that time. I "only" have the problem of loosing the connection frequently. Media Playback over bluetooth works fine, I can listen to music for several hours at a time with good sound quality and without any dropout. Connection loss only happens when the connection is idle.

I experience the same in an Volvo V60 (model not known, its from a car pool sharing) Experiencing BT connection drops way to frequently. I noticed this after upgrading to
