Please open the menu on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and then the settings. Now click on "Bluetooth". In the "Coupled Devices" section, tap the gear icon on your car's hands-free kit. In the next step, select Decouple. Your car is now decoupled. Now it must be reconnected again. This works as usual.

Tip 2: Start Bluetooth hands-free system/ Entertainment system always after activating Bluetooth

It is important that your Bluetooth on your Samsung Galaxy S7 is always activated before entering into your car. So when turning the car key and activating the system, it is then checked whether Bluetooth devices are nearby.

Tip 3: Reset Bluetooth App on the Samsung Galaxy S7

We hope that one of these three tips helped you, that your car or the Bluetooth hands-free kit always automatically connects to the Samsung Galaxy S7.
