BT connectivity to Android N device is toast suddenly


After 6 months with my current 1+ device BT yesterday somehow snuffed it

While The Dash (which I forgot in order to re-connect) is still seen by the phone after pairing it does not connect either media or phone audio. Going in to BT device properties and checking the box for either of these options results in a greyout of both

The Dash still connects to my Surface tablet and I have another (less finicky) pair of headphones which connect to the phone just fine

I just don’t understand how this occurs after 6 months, no updates to the earphones or the phone…? The renaming of The Dash is after 40 minute of attempting to get it connected, hitting forget and adding it to the phone again!!!


Did you get an Android OS update?
