Hey there guys, anyone here using Nexus 5 too? I'm currently having some issues with the hands-free system.

I've synced my phone and everything seems to work just fine, however when somebody calls me the iPod stops and the 'ring ring' comes into play I can't pick up the call via the hands-free system (neither using the steering wheel buttong nor the dashboard button). In order to pick up a receiving call I have to literally accept the call on the phone and then I can talk by bluetooth, not only that but I'd say that only 5% of my contact list actually have their names listed on the radio screen when I'm receiving a call.

Now I've tested with my wife's iPhone and it works just fine and dandy. On my Nexus 5, as previously stated, I can't pick up or end any incoming calls.

Would love some feedback from you guys. Kind regards. :music:

My gf's nexus 5 won't upload her phone book to my cruze. And my nexus 4 is just a complete failure at the mylink system. Kitkat 4.4.3 will be out shortly and if supposed to fix a lot of the Bluetooth issues

Indeed; sorry, my bad.

Claro (Brazil), Cruze 1.8 LT 2012 and the regular radio (not MyLink or DVD-type).

Yeah, I've been reading that too but I don't wanna put my money on the release, afterall as you've just said Nexus 4 is still screwed up.

Nexus 4 is running the same android version as the nexus 5. I'm waiting for the release and if it doesn't fix it then I will be getting an iPhone 5

Definitely sounds like a hardware/software issue on the phone if you've tested another phone and it checks out fine. Suggests the radio/BT is functioning properly on your car. BT protocols for different cellphones seem to be different and therefore don't always function the same way.

I hate to use wiki but it's got the info so: Bluetooth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As you can see devices can support different standards so depending on your setup this could be the issue. Nexus 5 uses BT 4.0 and the Cruze should be on 4.0 as well (so hard to find)

I did find in my research that the Nexus has a lot of driver issues which can also cloud or drop the signal between devices; this seems to be a common occurrence.

Yup. Makes me angry. I wouldn't have gotten my nexus if I knew they have the Bluetooth issues
