2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Intemittent Bluetooth Failure
November 16, 2010
"Bluetooth Media Stream?" Not so much, really. More like a Bluetooth Media Waterfall -- one in which the "water" is periodically interrupted by an unknown and unpredictable communication problem. This happened to me several times last night as I listened to music and attempted to answer phone calls while my phone was paired to the Raptor. As a result I ended up using the earpieces and USB cable.
It's a problem I've never before experienced with Ford's otherwise-stellar SYNC system, which recognizes my phone and pairs it immediately upon starting the truck.
I'm planning to spend time in the Raptor during two of the next three weekends. Stay tuned for a follow-up post.
