    For some reason the car that I bought a few months ago keeps renaming my phone. My phone is simply named "iPhone", but since I bought the car and paired over Bluetooth, the phone constantly gets a number in parentheses added onto it. Currently it is "iPhone (3)"
    It has gone all the way up to 5 at various points. I have not tried pairing any other phone besides this one with the car. The car Bluetooth also constantly disconnects and I have to re-pair the phone, but I guess that's another issue. Anyone have a way for me to get this to stop.
    The car is a 2013 Kia Optima SXL.

    DiscoveryD in action? Pretty sure that's been removed in iOS 9. Was the cause of all my stuff having a number added to the end up until 10.10.4. Looking forward to the removal of DiscoveryD in iOS devices pronto.
