Network/Connectivity Bluetooth Incompatible with BMW

    It looks like the recent update to Oxygen 5.0.1 has rendered my Bluetooth useless in my BMW vehicle.

    This is not okay, and after over 20 emails with Oneplus support, I was told to roll back my OS until another update is implemented.

    This is NOT a solution, and I am NOT happy about it after supporting this company for the last three years.

    Have you had any issues with other bluetooth speakers/headsets or is it just your car?

    sadly this is what happened to me in August.. I have loved my oneplus 2 and 3t. But have not updated to the new oxygen for exactly this reason. I drive a mini and the issue with oxygen was only solved by the upgrade of android...I spent months, unsuccessfully, trying to get it sorted with technical support..

    frankly I am gutted but will be changing phone with my next upgrade

    Bonsoir, j'ai le même problème sur mon Audi A3 de 2013. Je croyais que cela venait de ma voiture, mais j'ai essayé avec un iphone et la connexion en bluetooth fonctionne parfaitement. C'est depuis la mise à jour que ça bug. Quand je lis votre problème , je comprends mieux. Mais que fait oneplus?

    I have the same problem with my Oneplus 5 and BMW 3 2015. I am able to pair my phone with the car but next time when I go to my car, the phone is not connected automatically. If I try to connect manually from car menu, it does not connect. I need to do the bluetooth pairing process again to make it work, for that time. And next time pairing has to be done again... Before Oreo 8.0 this was working fine.

    Oneplus is a cheap phone meant for cheap people with cheap cars. Won't work with good cars like BMW.

    Only cars whose paints chips off are compatible with oneplus.

    Looks like it's the Oneplus connection with BMW. We were told to roll back the OS, but everything else about the OS is wonderful... just the Bluetooth that is able to keep my eyes on the road, rather than on the phone if I receive a call or need to change my music.

    Agree with you completely. My last phone was a Oneplus 1, and I've been a big supporter of the brand, but this is where they've failed us.

    Same problem here with a 2013 BMW320d Station wagon and Professional Entertainment System (NBT).
    Bluetooth Audio worked fine with OP2, OP3, Samsung S8+ and iPhone 6s, also the 5T worked fine up to O2OS 4.7.6 but stopped working with 5.0.x and still doesn't work with latest 5.0.4 even after factory reset and flashing the ROM from scratch with latest 5.0.4 image. Roll back to 4.7.6 doesn't work at all.

    I'm facing same issue with 2013 BMW F30. Bought 6T 2 months back and now considering selling it off. @Random Indian said it rightly. It's not for premium cars or OP didn't expect owners of BMW/Benz/Audi to buy this Chinese phone. Life was much better with Samsung. Would go back to S8/S9 territory.

    I have the OnePlus 7 Pro on EE and a 67 reg BMW X1, Apple Music is fine but any podcasts, starts and then it's like the Bluetooth on the car drops, few seconds later it starts again and then drops again.

    Rebooted phone, removed and re-paired to car but still no good.

    I know BMW don't care about Android at all but this is like crazy.

    Phone is on Android 9, Oxygen 9.5.11

    Guys try this out. it worked for my 2016 X1. Sit in your X1 and reconnect using the BT address of X1 on the phone. Good luck!

    when you say connect to address X1, mine comes up with BMW and a number, do I somehow need to rename?
