    Pairing bluetooth devices to Model S

    Anyone tried pairing different devices to Model S? What have you tried? I'm wondering if anyone has paired Andorid, Windows or other phones not starting in "i" Maybe a keyboard or mouse for backseat browsing?

    I've paired my Google Galaxy Nexus, and my wife's Google Nexus One. Both are Android devices, and both work great for both phone and music.

    As hinted in another thread, my (original) Samsung Focus (Windows Phone) pairs well. "Speak your test messages" and voice commands to interact with that UI works well (even in parallel with turn by turn from the car going at the same time).

    My iPhone 4 pairs easily, phone works great, music over Bluetooth is another matter, it cuts out constantly.

    I believe the problem is in the iPhone. If you turn off WiFi it will probably get better. It is spending too much CPU hunting down hotspots. You should also make sure that your body isn't between the phone and the center console (that seems to be where the bluetooth antenna is)... people are bags of water and tend to block bluetooth signals.

    I'll give that a try. I had the phone both on the floor and in the cuby under the display. Funny thing is today there were no problems at all.

    Perhaps there is an external source of interference.

    I have a hunch it is a problem with the bluetooth stack/module. I get the same problem with my Galaxy S3 and my iPod before and after I got my new iPod.

    Has anyone paired a BT headset? Maybe tried to use Skype for video calling?
