Just wondering if anyone has one of the latest Garmin Sat Nav's, and has got Bluetooth working with a Samsung Galaxy S8+ ? I had no problems with my Galaxy S5, but the S8+ and Drive 61 just won't play together.

They will pair, but actual connection is very rare, and only holds for a short time. I've done no end of un-pairing, clearing of cache, re-pairing, but the problem remains.

I've read every FAQ I can find from Garmin and Samsung, plus followed many possible cures mentioned on various forums. I've attempted to contact both Samsung and Garmin technical support, but they both live up to their reputation of being less than helpful.

I don't really need the functionality provided by the BT connection, it's just frustrating that I can't get it working.

Bluetooth connection with my other devices (hands free kit, headphones and car) is rock solid, which makes me think the problem is with the Garmin device.
