Default Bluetooth streaming issues

I have noticed that my MAXX HD will not stream via bluetooth to save its life. It is nerve racking to say the least. It is something isolated to this device as my HTC Rezound worked fine.

Here is what happens. When connecting to my 2012 Tundra it says it is connected for bluetooth streaming. If I pick an mp3 saved to the device it streams it just fine, but if I open Rhapsody or any other streaming app I get nothing. A work around I have found is to send myself a text message and not check it. Once the alert comes through for the new message it streams until I check it at which point it stops streaming. While streaming Rhapsody or any other streaming program it shows my ringtone name, when playing an mp3 it shows the mp3 name.

After searching I see this is an issue with various other vehicles as well. Anyone know a way to fix this? From what I have found Moto is not addressing the issue at this time. With 90% of my music coming through my Rhapsody subscription it is quite a pain to deal with.

Played around a little more. If I try to play my Amazon music through the cloud player I get no sound, but if I download the tracks to the device then open the Google Play Music app they play just fine.

FWIW this happened on the first sw, 7.2 update, and now on the 4.1 leak.

I wish I could help find a solution but all I can do is say it seems isolated to your phone. I use a jawbone big jambox at work and my pioneer in dash DVD player in my car. Both work flawlessly with the exception, sometimes they fail to connect without toggling Bluetooth. I can even use my jambox for media and headset for phone with both devices connected simultaneously. I spend most of my time with slacker radio, pandora or Sirius xm app.

I have some issues sometimes I have to reconnect it with my prius as the bluetooth audio will stop working sometimes. Also sometimes even though bluetooth audio is working phone calls will not and I have to fool around with the settings and disconnect and reconnect. Kinda a pain since my iphone works 100% flawless with the prius.

OP, which headunit are you using in your Tundra, Entune or non-Entune? I have a 12 CM 4x4 Platinum with the non-Entune Nav headunit. I haven't tried audio streaming unfortunately as I use satellite. But I can give it a shot on Fri when I come home from travel.

I have similar issues with my Droid RAZR MAXX HD and my 2012 Subaru Outback. The ONLY workaround I have found is to adjust the music volume slider in settings/sound/volumes after bluetooth is connected and audio is playing. I haven't found any common link between downloaded audio vs streaming. I have had issues with ICS and now JB with the bluetooth on the MAXX HD. My previous Droid RAZR worked with the same bluetooh system just fine.

I have a 2011 Toyota corolla with Bluetooth non En tune .

Mine has trouble streaming as well, but saved audio works just fine. Must be a Toyota thing. This happened on my windows phone too. My Bluetooth is a little finicky. Drives me crazy.

Everything works much better with the navigation dock. But still no streaming without auxiliary

Non-entune. Let me know what happens, thank you!
