Tinde's solutions is the only way to stream audio on my iPhone 5 to the FHP800bt. I have been researching

This for MONTHS. At least it works. BT is very inconsistent at best on the iphone. Calls frequently are disconnected and

Audio will suddenly drop out. Oh well. Sometimes it works. Just don't try fiddling w it while driving. More dangerous than texting. Disconnect > turn off head unit > turn head unit back on > click connect > turn dial to Nokia > swerve to avoid oncoming traffic. Continue listening to the Journey Greatest Hits album until five minutes later disconnects again. Repeat as needed.



This is the only way to work around this. Any other pairing method Fails miserably. No firmware updates from Pioneer either.
