Default Bluetooth Issues with brand new N5

So I just switched to a Nexus 5 from a Galaxy S4.... loved the phone until I connected it to my Tundra OEM bluetooth system. Hard to pinpoint an exact problem, it just doesn't work right. Randomly disconnects, etc. I had zero issues with bluetooth with my GS4. Is there some fix I should be aware of? i should mention that I rooted the phone right off the bat and am running Cyanogenmod Nightly.

Try it on stock to see if you have issues. It's most likely a rom issue

I've had a similar problem on stock rom with stock, chaos, franco and arkenstone kernels so I don't think the rom or kernel is the root of the problem. It will arbitrarily not connect, it will connect but when a call comes in won't automatically go to bluetooth but go to the handset etc.

I had hoped it was fixed somehow but happened again today out of the blue. It also comes with excessive bluesleep wakelocks that impact my battery life significantly (goes from draining at .7%/hr to ~3%/hr).
