Default N5 and Kia Soul Bluetooth

i had a N4 with custom ROM on it and sometimes Bluetooth would sync to my KIA soul radio and i could use hangouts and most of the time it would not, says transfer complete and connect just no audio, i get the same issue with my new N5 on stock ROM no root no unlock is there something i should be looking for.

when trying to use google hangouts it wont play audio through the kia's speakers so that i can use the bluetooth feature and be hands free. it will pair with the system and i can make phone calls using hands free but hangouts wont sync up so i can have video and audio

Do you mean so you can have the Kia read your texts to you? Cuz I don't know anyone with a Kia who has managed to get that to work. As for the video, not sure what you're talking about. My bluetooth works for phone calls, syncing contacts, playing music, and turn by turn directions. That's it. BTW I have the UVO non nav system.
