Apple limits there Bluetooth connection types. The iPhone/iPad/iPod touch do not support the standard Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP). Instead iAP over Bluetooth is supported which is not 100% compatible with the SPP protocol. Because of this iPhones and Bluetooth don't always cooperate well with each other. If you jailbreak your phone you can get around this Apple imposed restriction.

hmm did they change the protocol from 6 to 7? 6 worked perfectly fine, other than random static noise I used to get once awhile.

No but they are constantly"improving" it since it's THEIR standard not a UNIVERSAL standard like SPP which manufacturers can't change. These small "improvements" play havoc on Bluetooth devices and you never know how it will effect the device. Is there a firmware update available for the car?

IPhone 7 works fine for me in '14 535. Try deleting the phone and then re-pairing it. I had to do a clean (from scratch) setup with my phone so I had to re-pair. Have had no issues, and get my texts too.

it was a clean pair, deleted old profile prior to pairing. Oddly yesterday, incoming calls started working fine, haven't changed anything on my phone. Seems to be very random.

Had the car at the shop for 'flashing nav screen problem in heat'. When they replaced the unit they also updated the software. Now it says Media: MN-003.011.002 and Phone: TN-003.011.002. This fixed the problem so far. with my Iphone 7.

I am having this same problem with my iphone 6+. I believe it started when I updated operating system a few weeks ago. Outgoing calls work fine. I will try deleting and repairing.

Scroll to the bottom of the following thread. Updating your iOS to 10.1 likely will resolve the issue.
