Tour bluetooth issue with connecting

I have had my Blackberry Tour for almost a year and the bluetooth connection to my Toyota Prius has worked flawlessly. This week, I noticed that the Tour stopped automatically connecting to the Prius. After playing with it, I can get it to connect, usually by re - pairing the Tour and car. Once that is done, everything works as expected until the connection is broken again by turning off the car.

 

At the same time, I've also noticed my battery is draining much more quickly than it has in the past . Normally by the end of the night I am well above half and some days almost a full battery by the end of the day. Since this problem has occured, I am almost out by the end of the day.

 

I upgraded to 5.0.0.732 a week or two ago and I think my bluetooth was working after that but can't be sure.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

 

Thank you.

I seem to have bluetooth working again by downgrading to version 5.0.0.591. I'll have to see if it continues working and helps my battery life. Has anyone else had issues with the upgrade? Guess I'll have to wait for the next one to see if that fixes things.

My samsung phone has been connected to my vw bluetooth for 4 months no problems , yesterday it said no phone connected .... tried lots of stuff , still not working , took it to the V,W. Dealer and asked for the person there that was most savvy on connecting the phone to the car , he tried for about 15 minutes then said to bring it into the service area , they would hook it up to see what the problem was with the GPS / bluetooth connections , I asked him should we first try taking the battery out of the phone and see if that reboots it , NO he said , well guess what , it did work and re let me establish the connection to VW's bluetooth .,..  just putting this here for an F.Y.I. to others that may experience the same problems
