The only thing I can think that could be causing problems like this is if 
you have the receiver paired with the phone. If this is done it seems to 
cause no end of troubles. Other than that it could be problems with the 
bluetooth on your phone model or with the receiver itself. Other people seem 
to use the globalsat with no problems so it's strange that you'd be having 
connectivity problems like this. Maybe the receiver is in power saving mode 
and sleeping or something? Just a guess on that thoe.
