    Anyone have a working 6 and factory Bluetooth combo?

    2012 GMC Yukon will pair but not make or accept calls. Actually places 2 calls, puts one on hold and then disconnects. Nice.

    No problem in my 2014 Corvette. Chevrolet MyLink Gen II. Works fine with my iPhone 6 plus and both iOS 8.0.0 and 8.0.2. I should have specified that I have made a calls, received calls, used the contact list for a call via the in-dash and streamed music. I have not attempted a call/hold like in your description.

    Works great in my Plug-in Prius. Did you delete your previous phone before pairing the new one? You can also try resetting network settings.

    There is a definite problem with some systems. It is all over the Internet and I was surprised to not see it here.
    I have a Corolla bluetooth system and have had problems since I got my 6 plus. I read about a lot of possible solutions including deleting my phone and re-adding it, re-setting network connections. The only thing that actually half fixed it was deleting my old iPhone 5 from iCloud. The phone now works through the system on calls, but the Pandora and Sirius sound quality is very poor on bluetooth audio and only sounds right on iPod wired connection.
    I'm hoping 8.0.3 will have a fix for this since 02 didn't.

    YES! I have a 2014 GMC Acadia and I cant get it to pair with my 6 at all. I just haven't had time to mess with it to figure it out.

    I have deleted, reset, etc. All ideas floating the net have been tried.

    At least I thought. Then I tried the iCloud delete idea. Worked.

    Not sure what my iPad iCloud backup has to do with Bluetooth but it did.

    As of now it works, I'll let you know if it stays that way.

    2012 GMC Yukon Denali

    Deleted all iCloud backups through manage storage setting.
    Deleted pairings from phone and auto.
    Reset all settings on phone.
    Turned auto and phone off and on.
    Paired
    Success

    I just paired mine today with a 2004 Prius. I have a 13 Prius too and no issues with that either. I also paired it with a few portable speakers with immediate connectivity. I have read that some people are experiencing difficulties. I guess we shall see an update in an upcoming firmware revision.

    Deleted my old pairing and paired my new one to my entune system in my Camry and it works perfectly for music. Haven't received or made any calls yet tho.

    Apparently 8.1 is going to fix the issues with Bluetooth in vehicles. That's the Internet Rumor! ;)

    Mine would sync just find and could use Siri and listen to music but when I make a call and the call got answered it would be dead silence after 3-4 seconds had to change my audio to phone. But since the update to 8.0.2 it works fine. 2013 Hyundai Sonata hybrid

    I have 2014 Chevy Silverado. It pairs fine, plays music fine and answers calls fine. But when I hang up the phone, it does not start playing music again. I have to completely delete the phone and re-add it. I have a iPhone 6.

    2013 Lexus. At first I had a lot of the issues that people are mentioning here. It was frustrating. I just deleted and re-synced the 6+ and it has worked fine since.

    I'll try mine in my wife's 2011 Edge this weekend. I have an aftermarket BT stereo in my old car, and all the BT functions seem to work as they should.
