Question [Q] LG G2 4.4.2 Bluetooth Problems

I drive a 2013 Hyundai Sonata (Dimensions Bluetooth Audio system), and I am also trying to connect a Canz 808 Bluetooth Wireless speaker to my LG G2. When I initially pair my phone, everything connects fine. On both my car and the wireless speaker, the media audio does not connect properly after turning off the car or the wireless speaker and leaving the Bluetooth on the LG G2 on, and then either getting back and turning on the car or turning on the wireless speaker. The media audio does not connect properly (no sound) even though the phone shows it's connected. I have to turn off my phone's Bluetooth and then back on for things to connect properly. I found an app called Xperia Z1 Bluetooth media fix on the Google Play Store that seems to fix this problem. I did a factory data reset on my phone and I still have the same problems unless I use the app I mentioned, or I turn off my phone's Bluetooth and then turn it on once the devices I mentioned are already on. It seems when the devices try to connect to the phone, instead of the phone trying to connect to the particular device first, the media audio connection gets messed up. My Nexus 7 tablet, which is also on 4.4.2, connects perfectly each and every time so this seems to be a problem with the LG G2 specifically. Anyone with any ideas why this is happening?

Guys I went to the T-Mobile store today and I brought my Canz 808 wireless speaker with me. I tested it with another LG G2 at the store, and I was surprised when it didn't have any problems whatsoever. It seems my handset has a Bluetooth hardware problem. I already tried a factory data reset, and today I even downgraded to the stock 4.2.2 to see if that would fix it. No luck. They ordered me a replacement handset. It's on backorder so I'm not sure when I'll receive it. I'll test further once I receive the replacement.

After further testing things out with the replacement handset, it seems the replacement handset has the same exact problems. This appears to be a software issue then. I wasn't able to test things out properly with the demo unit at the T-Mobile store since I only tried it a couple of times. I would highly recommend anyone having media audio Bluetooth problems to try the Xperia Z1 Bluetooth media fix app on the Play Store since this little app has solved all my Bluetooth connection problems!
