Soooo, 4 months passed, new Android system, and the bug is still there... Is there anyone working on it?... It's doesn't seem like an isolated issue. I really thought that Android 8.0 update will finally fix this issue.

I'm having the same problem. Sometimes after Bluetooth app crashes I can't get LDAC connection via Bluetooth though I got Sony MDR-1000X which ofc support LDAC. To fix this I have to remove my headphones from my BT devices list, force stop BT, erease all BT data, restart audio settings app and then connect my 1000X's back again. It's highly frustrating. I hope they'll fix it ASAP...

I own two cars. A Smart forfour, latest model and a Mini Clubman. Before the update my Sony Xperia XZ Premium would not connect to the Smart radio. They 'see' each other, but dont connect after verifying them.(calling and media). In my mini the XZP could connect (media)the 1 st time, and sometimes, on the same day a 2nd time. But usually I had to reset them both other wise it wouldn't work at all. Calling via bluetooth was never a problem, only the media part.
but now after the update, everything is working fine in my Smart!!! But..... now bluetooth isnt working anymore with my Mini!!! Still no media, but also not able to call anymore! Aaarrghhh.
anybody suggestions what to do? This is driving me mad! The xperia xz(not premium) of my girlfriend is working just fine on both systems.

I am not sure, but try restarting your phone and then pair them.
I noticed that after the Oreo update, sometimes, my Mazda 3 wasn't able to connect to my XZP even tho my XZP was already paired with the new updated and it was able to see my car's bluetooth... The pairing just didn't want to happen, the car just didn't detect the phone... so I restarted the phone and then the car was able to connect just fine. I am still kinda testing it, and hoping I won't have to do it each time I'm getting in the car...

I have tried that already. Also did a complete reset, removing and adding profiles in my car for the bluetooth connection, etc. Still no luck. Will have to wait again for an update I'm afraid. 8.1 should be comming fast I asume to get rid of all the new android bugs. Thank god I have an Iphone (work phone) which always seem to be working.

Ide like to add to the list. Same issues everyone here is having.
When connecting to my car stereo, i loose the track information. And the hardware skip/play/previous buttons dont work at all. Ive managed to get it working now and then, but it takes me at least 5-10 minutes of forgetting the device and repairing. Turning off bluetooth and back on. More often this causes the bluetooth to crash and i need to restart the phone.
The stereo is a Sony MEX-N4100BT. Have had android phones for ages, and they all worked with this unit with no issues.
One thing i do notice, is after a restart i get a message saying "Google connectivity services isnt responding" And then crashes out. Not sure if theres a connection or not.
Would be nice to get this sorted. Everything else about this phone is great.

Yeah it's pretty upsetting... it looks like the bluetooth functionallity is flawed even for me... Sometimes I won't even be able to turn on the bluetooth... I have to reboot the phone to make it work. Oh well....

I'm having the same issue, not luck finding a quick fix. This Was the only phone I've ever had to work with my car till the update. Now I can't even change songs, I couldn't see the songs data from my old phone but at less I could change songs while driving.
