    Hi, can anyone with a mango device chime in on the functionality of their bluetooth? I ran into this article and am wondering if it is true that AVRCP 1.3 is added to mango. Windows Phone Mango Bluetooth stack updated, but not much | WMPoweruser
    With AVRCP 1.3, can you guys see advanced controls and album art on bluetooth devices?

    I have also noticed poor bluetooth audio quality, as well as the community. Streaming bluetooth audio is horrible, as static and grain can be heard in the background. Microsoft is looking into WP7 Bluetooth issues - Microsoft
    Any improvements?

    I just upgraded to Mango last night, and my Bluetooth now works worse than it did in NoDo. I normally listen to music and podcasts through my Kenwood head unit via Bluetooth. While Nodo had fixed initial problems I had, Mango has actually made things worse. My audio quality wasn't perfect under NoDo, but it was more than adequate for listening to things. Since my upgrade, my audio is no "choppy". It sounds like the phone is constantly resetting the connection every 2 seconds or so. Very disappointing to say the least.

    Just to add to the debate, i use BT all the time for listening to music (Via PC and Headset) and my Mango update has had no negative effects at all.

    I had no problems at all using BT on NoDo and Mango has made no difference whatsoever for me.

    I updated to Mango and audio quality is still unchanged. On lower volume music such as classical, there is an audible hissing/static in the background. Try downloading this song and tell me if you hear it. Zippyshare.com - 01-above_and_beyond-filmic.mp3

    I found a registry hack over at XDA which allows higher bitrate streaming over bluetooth, but it requires unlock.

    Nice instrumental chanmanx2k, it sounds fine here, I can't hear any hissing or static at all. Sounds great.
