Same issues here. Z5 compact which within hours of updating started causing problems with bluetooth. I initially returned it o2 who sent it away for repair. After 4 days at their repair centre and several questions of "what did you say was wrong with it again...?" they sent it back as no fault found and was advised to contact sony.
Basically, when connected to my van stereo (toyota proace), I can make and receive calls but it refuses to connect for media audio; it wont even allow the box to be ticked. In my wife's Seat Leon, it sometimes connects to media but not always and when it does connect, there is no media information and no way to navigate using the radio controls. All of this was fully functional prior to update.
The phone has been factory reset, restored from a previous setup and started from a fresh on several occassions all with varying lengths of success before inevitably going back to not working at all. Recently, the bluetooth has also taken to just switching off altogether. I think much like myself and many others, it's getting tired and just giving up.
Fingers crossed Sony sort it out soon, as previously mentioned I have recommended this phone to friends as I was that impressed with my previous Z3 and my current Z5.

Same issue as everyone else with bluetooth and music track selection and low volume until restart the phone with either in the car or with SBH-80 headphones connected, wish it was possible to roll back to Marshmallow until they fix it especially when Sony must have known of the issues with Nougat before rolling it out. At least if they can come up with a quick fix/ patch for the bluetooth problems - that would be a start.....this really needs to happen within days/ weeks and not months.

Same issue regarding my SmartWatch 3, Yesterday got my brand new XZ and was all excited...... since I have been pulling out my hair as the Smartwach 3 and phone connection rarely works, unpairs and simply does not work. My car bluetooth also simply doesnt want to connect.
Hope they fix the issue asap

i have this problem too, but only with devices are need a pin code.
I try this on my audio car JVC KD-R771BT : disable "auto pair" and set manually a pin code.
Don't let the phone try to connect with a random pin code.
You have this options in many sort of audio car device
Maybe it's help you
Sorry for my english :p

I faced the same issue and partially solved it by the Bluetooth File Transfer app. After i'm connected to my car set (Skoda Octavia) i'm runnig the app and then the transfer is done. Afterward I'm closing the app (not BT). Anyhow this is annoying and hope Sony will solve this.
