    Bluetooth problem after updating to Marshmallow

    After updating my S6 to Android Marshmallow, I canīt use my bluetooth carkit anymore.
    My car has a Renault with a R-link2 system. With Android 5.1.1 everything worked flawlessly. But after the update to Android 6.0.1, I am able to pair, but bluetooth continuously keeps connecting and de-connecting.
    I allready tried creating the pair again, changing device name... I even did a factory reset without putting backups back, but I keep having the same problem.
    Anyone else has this problem? Has someone an idea how to fix this?

    May be a compatibility problem.
    The Renault R-link2 system was update in February.
    Have you had the update?

    Yes, I just went to the garage and I already have the latest R-link2 firmware.

    The same thing has happened to me after my latest OS upgrade.
    Trying to resolve the issue and will keep you updated.

    Have you removed all devices from your car bluetooth?
    Remove the car link from your phone.
    Put phone into Recovery Mode and wipe cache then wipe data/factory reset.
    Now try reconnecting.

    I already tried that: exactly the same problem. Apparently everybody that works with Renault R-link2 and Samsung S6 with Marshmallow has the problem. But is it a Samsung or a Renault problem? (@Renault they say it is a Samsung problem (of course)) No idea who I should address to fix the issue.

    I installed this app already and played a little with the settings, but no change. Phone keeps continuously connecting and disconnecting.
