Bluetooth and Car after 4.4

Installed the 4.4 update earlier today.  Now Maxx will not connect unless I go to bluetooth under settings and press the car name to connect.  I have tried unpairing and pairing again but same result.  I can't see doing this everytime I get into car.  anyone else?

I am having the same issue since Kit Kat deployed yesterday. I drive all day for work and am in and out of my car so resetting it each time is a major annoyance.

Just tried the wife's car and same deal with not connect automatically.  Also tried laptop and same.  Is there possibly a setting that I can't find that will connect Maxx to bluetooth devices automatically.

I'm having the same problem.  My Droid mini has been working flawlessly with my 2013 Fusion Sync system.  My phone was updated 2 days ago to KitKat and now it never automatically connects to my car and requires a manual connect.

Wish I never updated...

I am new to Verizon, is someone from Verizon supposed to chime on topics such as this?

Thanks for trying so many steps already, spqhoots. Deleting and re-adding the pairing is actually what's been suggested by quite a few manufacturers after upgrading to a new Android OS version. Difficulties like you've described have already been reported to Google and we're working closely to find a way for your Bluetooth to automatically connect again. In the meantime, try searching www.play.google.com for an application that may help customize your phone to automatically connect to Bluetooth again with your new KitKat update.


Thank you

Anyone have a suggestion for an app to connect automatically to bluetooth?  I have tried a few and none seem to work.  thanks!
