    So I updated to GB and now the bluetooth in my 350z connects but has no audio. I read on the Motorola Support Forums someone is having the same problem with their Titan's bluetooth.

    It works perfectly with my Jawbone headset but would really like to work again as it did in Froyo with my car integrated blue tooth. Any ideas? Could I switch the bluetooth apk back to 2.2?

    Yes, go back to 2.2 Froyo. Those things can happen, perhaps bluetooth is flawed on Gingerbread.

    Can I just copy the 2.2 apk and profile and use that on GB?

    I want to know this also. I have an Interphone F4 motorcycle BT headset that only streams audio now. No voice works.

    Can we install the bluetooth from Froyo in GB?

    I too have an Interphone F4 BT for my motorcycle helmet. It was working fine. Now with the new Gingerbread upgrade to my Droid X, I can only use the media player. The BT phone connects, but will not answer and I cannot hear anything. If anyone has any suggestions short of returning to previous version 2.1 please let me know.

    I've been looking for over a week now. Thus far I believe that either there is no working bluetooth on any gingerbread rom, or it's just that the interphone is not compatible.

    Having tried three different roms and having the same results, I went back to froyo. I'll just wait for the ota because a rom without a working bluetooth is completely useless to me.

    I have the Scala G4 for my bike and it too now has issues with the OTA Gingerbread update. I hope someone has a fix OR knows of one coming. I woudl like to have my headset alert me to calls should I need to take an important call...

    As of now I am having to plug my phone in which is a PITA and a shame for a smartphone to have an important feature these days crippled...

    Same here. When my Droid x was running 2.2 froyo i had no issuse with bluetooth pairing to my 2007 nissan sentra. Now after 2.3 Gingerbread update, i can pair to my sentra but there is no phone audio. I also contacted motorola and verizon and did not get any help from either. My droid x has never been rooted and always ran stock. I wish i would have never installed the 2.3 update. I purchased a car equiped with bluetooth specifically because my state has band talking on cell phones wile driving and bluetooth hands free was my alternative to this law.

    Does anyone have any idea how to remove the Gingerbread update from an unrooted x?

    I have to call into the Tier 2 tech support when I get home to see if they know of a fix or for them to submit this. The basic tech support obviously could not solve this issue as honestly it is a SW bug that needs ironed out...

    That would be awsome. I really like the new look of the droid x and the increased speed and movement but loosing bluetooth connectivity to my car is not worth it. Would be nice if there was a way to keep both:)

    You guys can try going into bluetooth settings once you're connected. Long press on the connected device and choose modify. You should see check boxes for phone and media audio. Toggle those until both show as connected.

    Been there, Done that! Even a smart phone ignorant person such as my self explored all the settings including the ones you mentioned and i conlcuded that there is an issue with the bluetooth software in the update itself. I had no issue with bluetooth for over a year with 2.2 froyo:)

    I was able to pair my interphone F4 on a stock DROID X2 and was able to use phone audio and hear voice over the BT device.

    So I can confirm the problem lies with the gingerbread roms.

    Too bad it is not MY phone. Guess I wait until december when my contract is up before I can use my BT again.

    +1 on this. Here is my post from another thread on this forum:

    --------------
    Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but as I'm going through the forums, I'm noticing a lot of the people (myself included) seem to be having problems connecting the BT with their cars.

    Specifically I'm reading a lot about Nissan cars and BT (maxima, tundra, sentra from what I've read so far). I have an infiniti (made by nissan) with the exact same issue. Worked fine with my Droid X yesterday and now it's garbage after I upgraded the OS.

    Even tried wiping my phone after backing it up. No dice.

    Can anyone else jump on the Nissan bandwagon? Or is it just a coincidence?

    I have the same issue with my Infiniti. No phone audio through bluetooth. Can place calls just fine through the car, but can't hear anything.

    Add Honda/Acura to the list. My 2011 TSX worked with the Droid X without isuse, until the GB update was installed last week. Calls drop when placed and not able to pick up incomming calls are the issues I am experiencing. Tried re-pairing and wiping the phone with no benifit.

    Is that the OTA or a rom you installed? I was hopping that when the OTA is released it will fix this issue, but if its the OTA ill need to know how to block it from updating. I don't want it if the BT is broken.

    My upgrade was OTA - haven't done anything with roms. I think no matter how you slice it, gingerbread breaks BT in certain situations when all is said and done.

    It was the OTA that is causing BT issues for me. I was really hoping that it would be fixed when the OTA was released, but I was wrong. I don't know of a way to block the install, but you can keep choosing not to install when prompted which will only delay the inevitable.

    I have a Nissan Altima and the problem is occurring for me as well. I've tried everything I can think of and nothing seems to work for me.
