Hi,

I have the same problem and there is a known problem with the type of paint on Ka's. On vehicles with pearlescent paint (i.e. Dive, Blush, Crystal) the metallic finish interferes with the bluetooth signal and hence no audio on devices with low transmit levels.

To confirm you have this issue you could try connecting with an iPhone which seems to have a much better signal strength.

Hope this helps

Sam
