Question Honda Civic 2013 + S8 Plus Bluetooth.


Active Member

So I've just moved over to an S8 Plus from my Note 4. Just wondering if anyone else has had problems with their S8 / Plus connecting to blue tooth in their vehicles.

I've got a 2013 Honda Civic EX GT with the premium audio system / HFT option.

The S8 Plus doesnt see my car at all.

I've confirmed the S8 can see other bluetooth devices so I know its not that.

Its been in for a service about 6 months ago so should have received all the latest software/firmware upgrades.

Anyone familiar with problems like this as Samsung are blaming the car at the moment!

Disconnect the battery in the car to reset everything and give another go. Maybe give Honda a ring to check if your audio system is actually on the latest firmware/ version.

Also, the S8 has Bluetooth 5.0, I cant imagine there'd be compatibility issues, but could check with Honda?
