Setting my phones bluetooth to this setting seams to have fixed it for me. And for a few others. As i found the fix not to long ago on another post too.

I have the same issue with my beats headphones, the phone locks up and re-starts.
Sony Please fix it or you will be getting it back.

Same problem here. Updated xz premium to oreo earlier today.
Nav bar no longer autohides on things like chrome and Bluetooth not working at all on 1.6 in my BMW and only occasionally working... Slowly... On 1.5. (I've yet to try 1.4).
This needs an urgent fix, it affects handsfree calling as well. I really hope it's not something that takes months in 8.1 but rather a direct bug fix in the coming days!

I don't know where to to post this. Since the Oreo Update the Mini Cooper (Current Generation) does not work over Bluetooth anymore. It sees the phone and I think it gets contacts over Bluetooth. But when I want to play music, it does not receive it. I tried repairing and restarting the phone but something about Oreo Bluetooth it doesn't like. What can I do, it's such basic functionality!

I changed it to 1.4 and it works fine now (1.5 didnt work). And it is also lightning fast when connecting. When I start my Mini, within a few seconds it plays my bluetooth audio!
It is a shame that 1.6 isn't working yet, with the addition (finally after xx years) with cover art. But then again I guess the system were you connect to must also support 1.6 😀.
Thanks again, this is really something I cant miss.

Will be interested to see if the issue for the other poster is permanently solved.
1.6 doesn't connect at all.
1.5 works once then requires reboot and repairing.
1.4 works similarly to 1.5 but after the second reboot, can't even detect the car.

Do you have a mini or bmw? Maybe a latest install of the connect firmware of your system will help. A few months ago I updated mine. Check the mini / bmw site for update. Or otherwise a visit to your dealer?
