    With iOS 6.1 on my Maxima, BT audio still cuts out occaisonally, and I can't see album, song, or artist lists.

    The 6.1 iOS upgrade appears to have fixed the incoming call problem in my 2012 Buick regal and my iPhone 5. Haven't tested everything Bluetooth related yet.

    This is what I'm seeing as well. I tried BT streaming with Pandora on my 2013 Altima. While stopped at an intersection, it disconnected for about 30 seconds and then reconnected. This happened for me before the 6.1 update, but only 1 other time and I use it frequently.

     

    Another issue that I see unresolved is the ability for the car to receive SMS messages and read them. Sending my self a SMS via Google Voice, the car acknowledges a SMS received, but selecting "Read" from the stearing wheel doesn't do anything.

    Does anyone have the TSB number for Nissan/Infiniti?

     

    My dealer can't find any info about the update for my 2012 murano.

    Well thank to this discussion and the help of gobidz27 for the right info Empire NISSAN got the disk for the update and loaded this morning. All is working great can receive calls and event sounds clearer. Thank everyone and Service Advisor Joe Avila for listening to a frustrated owner.

    Same problem with my FX35.  Had a 4 that worked great.  Now I have to reset the phone or delete the phone and re-pair it with the truck.  Very frustrating.  The only answer I have received so far is to check with the dealer for a software upgrade.  Not much help.

    Hmmm, spoke too soon. My bluetooth streaming has dropped again today. The car stereo automatically reverted to XM radio, then immediately bluetooth got re-established. But the bluetooth streaming never came back on since it was now on XM.

     

    I'm wondering if I should get that Nissan update anyway... or maybe try repairing the phone with the car again.

    Hello,  I'm new to this but I have had all the issues already discussed in this thread.  I have found that if you go to iphone settings - bluetooth - then on your device (car) uncheck "phone favourites" and "phone recents" only leaving sync contacts on and all contacts checked,  it works. 

    I didn't re-name my phone or re-pair my phone with car, just unchecking those 2 options seems to of cured the incoming call problem.  I drive a 2011 Nissan Navara Pick-up Truck.

    I can still here a distinct "click" 2 seconds into the incoming call but instead of it cutting out, like it used to, the call stays connected.

    I don't know if this might help others out there but it worked for me.

    My iphone 5 will not cooperate w my Pioneer BT head unit in my car. Constant disconnections, garbled audio etc. I can pair both audio and phone but it frequently loses connection and will only connect at all if I trick my head unit into thinking it is a Nokia phone. (I read that trick in one of these forums) unfortunately it is only a temporary fix as the streaming audio stutters. This is a nightmare and also a safety risk. I have tried renaming the phone, updated to iOS 6.1 and no luck. I even contacted Pioneer to see if there were any fixes on their end. No firmware updates, no solutions. A bloody shame because I really am impressed w the iPhone otherwise. I am a recent Android convert. I never had any connectivity issues with the Droid btw.

    I just had the Infiniti update installed yesterday on a 2011 G37 w/ nav and everything now works great. Then again, I installed the iOS 6.1 too, so that may have been the fix.  In any event, I had a long discussion about this at the dealer and they've installed the update on many Infiniti vehicles in recent weeks.  They're well aware of the problem and how pervasive it is among Infiniti owners.

    So your telling us Infiniti owners that you can stream music BT AND SELECT YOUR PLAY LIST AND SONG FROM YOUR NAV

    AND DOWNLOAD YOUR PHONE BOOK INTO THE INFINITI TOO
