    I just got my '15 Subie with the standard head unit and it skips streaming music every 3 seconds or so. Also, the handsfree is useless because it skips on that as well. I thought switching from my barebones Jeep with manual windows and locks would finally give me some creature comforts.

    Where is your phone at while you are experiencing the skipping problems? I use a mount that goes in the CD player slot so my phone sits right in front of the head unit. I was experiencing skipping problems with bluetooth playback and when I remove the phone from this phone mount right by the head unit, and just lay the phone near the cupholder, seat, or compartment in front of the shift knob, the skipping stops. So, evidently their is interference when the phone is too close to the head unit. I hope this helps.

    I've since switched phones, from an M8 to OnePlus One. The issue with the audio cutting in and out when playing music has improved a lot. It will skip once in a while but not nearly as bad as the M8.

    Though @RomansTenNine, I also have the same CD mount, and when I clamp in my phone, the skipping comes back pretty bad.

    It seems to be that the issue is tied to maybe phone materials, and hardware possibly that causes the interference.

    You guys don't have your phones plugged into the USB slot for charging, do you? I noticed that every 3 seconds my music would skip or go silent for a blip, and I realized that my Android phone (Galaxy S4) was freaking out because it couldn't decide if it wanted to connect as a media device, or as a storage device, and kept throwing a system alert that would blip the sound.

    Other than that, the phone will only interrupt music if I get a notification that the Hands-Free mode on the phone picks up on, or a system event blips on the phone and I have the system sounds turned up.

    I updated my phone's firmware (iphone) and the issue seems to have stopped. I have only listened to it for a few minutes, but it didn't skip once.

    So the skipping issues have stopped while streaming music, but the call quality is crap. I have resorted to using my phone's speaker to talk while driving. I strap it against my chest using the seat belt. Does anyone else have this issue? The call quality is terrible on either end of the call.

    Did you pair it to both systems?
    Get the manual forget the phone in Bluetooth menu, then re pair the phone.
    The right procedure should be in the manual, or check YouTube.

    I have not had any issues with my Iphone, connects quickly, streams Pandora with no skipping, and call quality is as good or better than my GTI.

    How is the quality of everyone's bluetooth. I am noticing callers on the other side have been complaining that the quality is terrible on their end. I have already tried reducing the Mic Volume to no success.

    Samsung Galaxy S4: Been great so far. Wife says the thing is crystal clear on her end, so I haven't gotten the same quality issues that others are complaining about.

    Terrible. Callers hear grinding when I accelerate or shift. Stock BT is garbage on 2015 just as the whole HU.

    I have a '15 WRX with the base stereo (not touchscreen) that has a slightly different problem. Randomly the BT connection will just drop. I'll know because audio disappears and a few seconds later my phone (android) plays the sound indicating the BT was disconnected. It doesn't matter where the device is located, and it could happen within seconds, or not at all. The car will think it's still connected for a while after though, and track time will continue counting.

    I am guessing it's related to the stereo, where most of the issues I've seen on here are probably the phone.

    Has anyone else noticed that you can only pair 1 device at a time? I think that's pretty stupid, but luckily I'm the only driver. It would suck to have to delete and pair a phone every **** time you drive the car.

    This has been happening to me all the time lately. My current phone is a Oneplus Two, I am going to test my Oneplus One and by brothers Note 4 to see if its my stereo or my phone.
