Various Bluetooth problems with solutions

An article to describe 2 small Bluetooth concerns currently found on Renault systems.

R-Link 2: Problem to select the audio source for iPhone

Regarding the R-Link 2, several messages indicate people wanting to stream Bluetooth music iPhone from an application such as Deezer or Spotify. Problem: The Bluetooth audio source is not available (it is grayed out).

This problem seems to affect the latest versions 2.2. Waiting for a Renault fix there is a way to fix this bug: just place an MP3 file on the iPhone using iTunes, no matter it does not matter. Once in the iPhone, you can select the Bluetooth audio source normally from R-Link 2 and stream music from your favorite application.

If you do not have an MP3 file at hand here is a beautiful with the song of a bird: the reed bunting. Bruant_des_roseaux (right click to download)

Android 8.1

Another concern spotted recently linked this time with Android 8.1.

With this version, after a while the GPS (R-Link 1-2, Medianav) indicates that there is no network available (even if it is the case). This bug does not prevent receiving calls or Bluetooth streaming. However it is not possible to launch a call from the system (message that the network is unavailable), it will launch directly from the phone.

According to Renault, this is an Android bug and so Google must provide a fix for phones. This version of Android is very little broadcast at the moment: only on a few phones, mainly Nokia and Pixel.

No problem found on version 8.0
