Bluetooth works but doesn't see my phone content

I have a 453 with touchscreen. My Bluetooth feature works but doesn't see the content in my iphone. If I select my music or podcasts from my phone, they come through ok via Bluetooth but I can't control selections from my touchscreen as it can't see the content. It worked ok last week but as of a few days ago, I can't seem to get it to work. This problem seems to pop up from time to time and I'm wondering if it an issue with an iphone update gone wrong or is it a problem with the smart's entertainment system. With the phone plugged in to the USB, everything works fine.
Not sure if it will reset itself eventually as it sometimes does.

Well, this thread didn't get much traffic but I want to report that all of a sudden, my Bluetooth connection issue that I describe above has now returned to normal...I really don't know why but this seems to be something that is an ongoing issue with me. I've learned to live with the quirkiness of this but it's quite annoying. Obviously this issue is not that common out there. I feel so 'SPECIAL'.

You give no indication where you live. I'm *jealous* you landed a 453 with an entertainment system. Can I assume you do not reside stateside? Or did a Smart with entertainment system sneak across the border without my hearing about it?

Nice looking color!

Now I have a 451 that I installed an Android radio in and initially I had some quirky issues with my Galaxy S5 phone connecting and mirroring. I wiped out all the connection settings and paired them back together after I had all the updates to the head unit. Now it seems to be working fine. Usually it would work fine in the driveway when a person could be all relaxed when they were using it. But when you are driving and need it to work correctly with a minumum of fuss, it seems like that is when it would mess up. DCO

CANADA! I had ordered it early on with the touchscreen. I'm happy I did but I'm sure I would have adapted well with the radio and phone holder. I'm afraid once the warranty is gone, it will cost me much to get glitches in the system looked into.
