    Hello -

    Curious to know if anyone else has isssues w/ intermittent interference while talking on DroidX 2.2 (rooted) via bluetooth handsfree. I can connect calls, upload address book, hear phone ring, etc...but when talking i will get intermittent interference that completely blocks the ability for me to hear and to be heard for aprox 2-4 seconds. In a 4 block radius it will occur 4 - 5x. Very Very annoying. What really sucks is that it appears to be a combo of the DroidX and my BMW 2007 X5

    Enviornment:
    1. DroidX running leaked Froyo
    2. BMW X5 2007 w/ bluetooth

    Troubleshooting Thus Far:
    1. Rebooting DroidX
    2. Repairing it (multiple times)
    3. Tried w/ Stock 2.1 using an sbf flash
    4. Tried it w/ 2.2 (froyo)..froyo fixed an address book issue but not the interference.
    5. Tried a buddies DroidX and it demonstrated the exact same issue
    6. Tried a buddies original Droid and it did NOT have a problem. Worked perfectly.
    7. Used my DrodX w/ 2.1 in a 5 series 2010 and it did NOT have a problem.
    8. Made sure that the bmw car firmware was at latest release

    so i'm stuck. Assuming there is no hope. Maybe someone can let me know any additional troubleshooting that i overlooked and/or a channel I can use to get issue escalated?

    thanks in advance

    Sounds like it's time to trade in the BMW. Just kidding. I have a Ford Mustang with Sync and the phone side seems to work fine. I have noticed when streaming MP3s or Pandora through BT that there seems to be a stuttering every few minutes. I rebooted and this went away, but then returned later. I read in another forum to try turning off wifi, and that seems to have worked, but I haven't tested extensively. I am also running Froyo on the DX.

    Didn't think about the wireless trick. I know the original Droid had wireless turned on and didn't have issues. But I will definitely try toggling the wireless and report back.

    --Update: By the way "stuttering every few minutes" is the perfect explanation of the problem.. Sounds like it is definitely related.

    SOLUTION:
    Kpiskin - your idea worked. Toggling the wireless off prevented stuttering every few minutes. MUCH APPRECIATED!

    obviously, would be killer if I didn't need to worry about toggling wireless. I'm noticing other threads about the bluetooth. Seems bluetooth is a bit 1/2 baked. Here is to hoping a longer term solution is identified.

    For now, I'll make do.

    Again, thanks for the help kpiskin

    I just upgraded to the official 2.2 on my Droid X. I too am having the WiFi interference when using the Bluetooth in my BMW 7 series. If I turn the WiFi off though, no more periodic interference. What a pain to turn it off every time I get into the car. I hope they fix this bug soon.

    It sounds like the WiFi periodically looks for a network and for whatever reason stops the BT connection.

    I just say "bluetooth audio" and my mp3s automatically play unless I have Pandora running.

    I have the same problem, my MP3s play perfect but the moment I try to play Pandora or iHeartRadio and nothing comes through..... No one has a fix for this or any tricks to try?

    Thanks.

    Bluetooth problem

    I've been suffering intermittent hiccups in my Droid x with Froyo and prior to it. Before Droid x I had LG Dare and had the same problem. My conclusion is that it depends which channel is selected because just yesterday I was listening while walking and it started so I shut bluetooth off totally with the menu button and then restarted it and didn't have a single interruption for an hour. Does anyone out there know how to find which channel is good and preselect it?

    I can confirm that turning off WiFi makes my streaming work perfectly. When it IS on, there is terrible gaps, dropouts, of the streaming music from any source.

    This was with Droid X and Ford Fusion Hybrid with Microsoft Sync.

    It's clear when I turn it off and on, it totally affects the feed, and I agree with a prior poster, that somehow the Wifi "search" mode "hangs up" the Blue Tooth.

    An easy fix ... well, actually a workaround, until they do an update to fix it.

    I've got a nearly identical problem. When connected to an 802.11 router, and using bluetooth, all outbound audio from the bluetooth is badly garbled. I stumbled on disabling the 802.11 as the bluetooth seemed to work fine when I was out and about, but as soon as I got near an associated access point the problem started happening.

    I'm on a Droid 2 Global with android 2.2 as well. Baseband N_01.48.05R

    Hope someone finds something to solve this, as it's quite a drag to have to disable 802.11 to use bluetooth reliably.

    Not sure if this is related, but I have the Droid 2 with 2.2. Most of my mp3's played great via bluetooth (on the Motorola headset (S9-HD)), however, there was always a few that would stutter consistently. After trying nearly every suggestion out there, I found that when I unchecked the ENHANCED STEREO option under the bluetooth settings, the stuttering stoppped. Unfortunately I did lose some sound quality.
