    Default Nexus 6 - bluetooth problems

    Running 6.0.1.

    A couple of days ago it 'forgot' my car bluetooth, my clock radio bluetooth and a couple of other bluetooth devices. It won't even 'see' my car now, even if I try to force connect.

    Any ideas?

    Does it see anything at all? Sounds like it's faulty. Has it been dropped at all?

    No - hasn't been dropped.

    It can connect to the soundbar for the TV and my Halo Fusion headset - but doesn't 'see' anything else. It's bizarre.

    I also have a Moto G (2nd gen) that sees all four devices but only their MAC addresses - doesn't resolve to the device names

    And was working perfectly a couple of days ago. No Android updates in that timeframe...

    Weird!
    Factory reset time!

    I'm pretty sure it was the 5X that had a bunch of bluetooth issues, not the 6, but I could be mistaken...

    Yes, I was also thinking factory reset. But as I am about to leave for Europe for three weeks, I might just let it slide for now.

    Maybe Nougat will sort it all out....

    Have you tried restarting it? Android generally doesn't need it but the old "turn it off and back on" trick still applies for fault finding.

    I like the quick connect feature of 6/6.01 and so far have not had it forget anything luckily. Using a note 5 myself.

    Yep. Restarting problem devices is my go-to tool in the first instance...

    Bizarrely, it seems to have sorted itself. I got my daughter to try to connect her 5X at the same time as me, and out popped up. All good!!!
