Has anyone else had problems with their phone automatically connecting? I got in the car yesterday and I was on my headset so BT was on but ALP wouldn't connect. I went into settings on the phone and verified that it was still paired and selected it again. No luck. I powered ALP down and back up with no change. Once the call was over I turned off BT on the phone and back on. That did it. The phone is a Galaxy S9. This isn't the first time I've experienced connection problems. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I have the same issue periodically with my Galaxy A5. Turning BT off and on usually fixes the problem. If not then a phone restart clears the BT stack. It's a quirk I've learned to work around.

Make sure the app is excluded from your phones battery saver functions. Most battery saver features will put the app to sleep after a while.
