Default 2012 Impreza\2013 Crosstrek Bluetooth auto-connect issue with Galaxy S3

My wife and both have Galaxy S3s and neither are able to get the bluetooth to auto-connect with our car radios (CZ624u1, the base model). We have to go the manual route and even that take several attempts before it connects.

Anyone have this issue or know how to fix it.

This won't really help your issue, as I have no idea how to fix it, but I also have this problem in my 2011 WRX with my Galaxy Nexus. It won't auto-connect. I have to connect manually and it usually takes multiple tries. Sometimes it will connect fully, other times it will connect without phone. Basically a giant PIA.

Gumy and CNUsubie07, how did you initially set up your bluetooth connection?

Try clearing existing connections and set it up using the BT steering wheel control and voice commands. See if that helps.

I heard that you want to use the voice commands and not the buttons on the radio. I have a Galaxy and a 2013 with no Nav.

Exactly, I ended up getting both cars connected using the voice commands. Just make sure that you unpair your phone and car on both devices first (the S3 likes to remember pairings) and you should be good.
Both of ours work perfectly now.

I have this same problem with my S3. Did any of you have luck pairing with the voice commands?

I've had the same issue with my S4/S5.. I frequently have to delete the phone and once the car is turned off and back on again have to force it to reconnect. Has anyone contacted Subaru on this at all?

No, because the solution is in the post above yours. I have an S4 and it connects automatically without issue. Delete all phones from the radio (in the phone section and audio section). Delete all bluetooth connections to your car on the phone. Use the voice prompts to pair your phone.

Same problem with an S5, and using verbal commands as mentioned got it to work correctly.

+1 on pairing through voice commands. I have an S4, and it seems like button pairing is only for music and required me to me to manually connect every time I turned my car on. 5 months of that horse manure and I figured out the voice connect and thank God it auto connects. I use BT for music 90% of the time, so it's great that it auto connects.

I had it paired with voice commands previously and was still acting up.

Edit: at this point I have given up and just plug it in through the aux
