Default Bluetooth audio skipping, whats the culprit?

For some reason recently anytime I play music through my bluetooth car audio tracks will start skipping. I dont mean skip tracks like from song 1 to song 2. I mean more in the sense like the music gets garbled and loses time.

My music is stored on my sandisk 64 gb sd card. Ive read that these have a high failure rate.

It wouldnt make sense either though because when my music was stored on my internal memory, i remember it happening as well just not as often

But the wierd thing is, it happens sometimes, other times it wont happen.

Could it be my ROM? Im on hyperdrive 6 at the moment.

Any info is appreciated.

Same issue for me. I used several BT devices just fine but had Isimply BT installed in car and it's doing what you described. Can't figure it out.

After researching this it appears to be a generic issue with Jellybean that affects various devices. Google implemented most (if not all of the bluetooth stack) in 4.3, so it seems like they unintentionally introduced this bug in the process.

There are a few workarounds you can do that helped my EVO LTE with this (which is running 4.3). Disable WIFI and if possible, keep the device from going to the lock screen with something like NoLock.

More info.
