    iPhone 4S post upgrade I've lost my pairing ability with a 2006 BMW....  No such thing as a surprise free upgrade.

    Amongst the issues already discussed has anyone noticed that you can not obtain phone book information via bluetooth either. Also although i have no track info or ability to operate play/pause or skip tracks i can select to repeat and shuffle.

    From Pioneer support this afternoon,

     

     

     

    Thank you for contacting Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.

    I am sorry to hear you are having problems with the iOS 6 update.

    Our engineers are currently working with Apple to see if there is something we can do to restore the metadata from the Bluetooth Audio streaming.

     

     

    Sincerely,

     

     

    Rocky

    Customer Service Representative

    Kenwood is being far less than helpful. They still don't seem to believe there is an issue.

    Kenwood knows there is an issue, as do most at this point. (I don't work for Kenwood, but have talked with techs there, and there is a post on here from them too).

     

    I've tested my 4 running 6.0 on a few units and there are issues, and they vary from brand to brand and model to model (tested JVC, Pioneer, Kenwood so far).

     

    The OS has been offical for a few days, give people at chance to test things and see what's up. If you want to get mad at someone the priority levels would be:

     

    1. Bluetooth Association for having so many variences and options within their standard - read it, it's brutal how many optin's and out's their are. As well for not building in better legacy support assurances into their spec.

    2. Apple for not providing hardware and software beta's earlier, and with longer test windows

    3. Manufactuers for not being more proactive in testing this stuff - but with so many models and phones etc - it's tough to do without full completion of #1 & #2.

    FWIW, BT streaming continues to work perfectly with complete metadata and control on my Toyota factory audio system (2011 FJ Cruiser), so it does appear to be an issue with some manufacturers but not others.

     

    By the way, various builds of iOS 6 have been available to the development community for several months, so perhaps these audio manufacturers should have done a little more testing themselves.

    H I also have the same problem with my Pioneer AVH P4450 head unit. After upgrading to IOS6!i cannot control my music via Blutooth. I can only play and change tracks with the iPhone. Seems like the new OS has some compatibility issue. Hope apple can fix this fast!

    Well the fact that I am having the same issue has most I've extremely annoying. What's more annoying is the fact that on my friends old kenwood unit everything works how it should. iPhone 5 with a kenwood KDC-BT60U.
