    I just got a Honda Civic EX last week and I've noticed that connecting to it from my iPhone 6 is really slow in comparison to my 2013 Prius. My wife crashed and totaled the Prius the other week.

    Wondering if I'm doing something wrong. My Prius would connect within 5 seconds (maybe less) but my Civic seems to take anywhere from :30 seconds to a minute.

    Anyone have any experience with this?

    Honda's are slow at everything.
    jokes aside, some stereos bluetooth take different amounts of time to connect to bluetooth, ive had many different stereos in my car and some connect in 5 seconds, others connect in 30 seconds, some wouldnt even connect half the time. you can try clearing the synced bluetooth devices on both the car and the phone and try again, if not get an aftermarket radio.

    Since the last iOS update, I've had issues with the Bluetooth connection with my 2014 Tacoma.

    Ha! Actually aside from the radio being slow the car is way zippier than the Prius was. Of course that car weighed a ton and I could probably pick up the Civic with my bare hands. :p

    I think the Civic's radio is just slow to boot up, hence slow to connect. Unfortunately, I Lease so aftermarket radios would be a waste for me. Not sure if I get penalized if I return the car with an aftermarket one. But I'd also lose my cameras (reverse and right lane change) so it definitely wouldn't be worth doing.

    I didn't have an issue in my Prius after the update. :(
    It's probably just the Honda Radio.

    I have a 2013 Civic and yes, it can take 30 seconds to connect. Usually my iPhone will connect once I actually start driving. I noticed this with both by iPhone 5 and iPhone 6.

    That's annoying... I wonder why it's so slow to connect. It's probably the slowest BT connection I've ever seen.

    Yeah, I'm not sure. FWIW my girlfriend's 5c seems to connect quicker and from longer range compared to my 5 & 6. If her phone is connected and then she leaves the car it sometimes takes forever to connect to mine. To the point where I usually just manually connect it. I wonder if it has to do with the placement of the bluetooth in the car. I never thought it was an issue because this is my first car equipped with bluetooth.
