I’ve had months and months of issues with pairing my iPhone 6 and my Tesla Model S using Bluetooth. And I’m excited to say that think I’ve finally solved the problem!
The problems I was having:
- Phone would randomly disconnect and then re-pair with my car. Sometimes this seemed to happen every 60 seconds. Happened during phone calls and while using Bluetooth audio
- Sometimes the phone wouldn’t pair at all– in some of these instances the Bluetooth logo on my phone would be lit up.
Solution? I had a Tile tag on my car keychain. I got rid of it and the pairing problems went away.
Tile uses BLE (Bluetooth low energy) so I guess that my phone’s connection to the Tile was somehow interfering with its connection to my Tesla Model S… something for Tesla to fix in their Bluetooth implementation.
I’m just happy to once again be able to talk hand-free and listen to music from my iPhone while I’m driving.
