    There shouldnt be a problem. Can you connect with other phones or headphones via bluetooth? Try to troubleshoot by trying other devices first.

    Try to connect oneplus 5t with other devices, maybe another phone, headphones and see if you can establish a connection.

    Bluetooth is backwards compatible. So even if the car and your phone do not share the same version they should be able to connect. Try setting your phone bluetooth off, and click on the scanning options that appear under bluetooth panel in options. Turn bluetooth scanning on/off from there and retry. Also make sure your device is discoverable (turn on and off to make sure)

    Mine was working fine until a month ago but now my car menu displays no bars to make calls even though it pulls across all contacts, last rec'd calls etc from phone. my other work phone (Samsung) connects no problem as did my previous LG phone. Therefore it's not the car. I should also say that my Op5t connects normally with other Bluetooth devices such as Anker speakers.
    I have tried unpairing and repairing but to no avail. the only thing which seems to work is if I have already driven then return to the car and upon driving again the phone then connects. Very frustrating especially since I had no problems when I first got the phone.

    One Plus can you please solve this?

    My OnePlus 6 does the same thing with my 2018 Genesis G80. Pairs just fine - contacts there, etc. However I cannot make or receive calls through the car's Bluetooth connection. I can make and receive calls on the handset which automatically switch over to the car but that is useless while driving.

    my problem is: after upgrading to Oreo, the signal strength in the bluetooth icon of the car display show no bars, even though there's actually strong signals and I can make or received calls through car's bluetooth.

    My 5t is running Android 8.1 and I am having the same issue. Bluetooth used to work with my Sony XAV AX100 flawlessly, but now everything still works except for phone calls.

    Also, on side note, I am having issues with Google Map or Waze as well... GPS doesn't seem to be working when it is running of Android Auto.
