Bluetooth on Phone deletes/loses my Tesla under "Saved Devices" when turned off.

New M3 owner here. Just accepted delivery about 2 weeks ago and LOVING it. Anyway, I have a new Pixel 7 and I noticed that sometimes when I get in the car, the phone doesn't connect. I would have to "forget device" in the car and re-pair the phone.

I just realized that if I TURN MY BLUETOOTH OFF, my phone forgets the car under "saved devices" so that's why it won't connect. So if you're not familiar with Android, there is a list of devices you've connected to in the past, so they can connect in the future. I have several other devices, headphones, smart watch, etc.. but this ONLY happens with the M3.

IF I LEAVE MY BLUETOOTH ON, it never disappears and it reconnects automatically like it should but soon as i turn it off and back on, it's gone.

Anyone else experiences this? Initially thought it was an Android bug but I don't have issues with any other devices.

Hmm... I'm not a Pixel 7 user. but I have a Pixel 5 running the current version of Android 13 and I frequently disable and enable bluetooth. I haven't experienced it forgetting my 3. I wonder if it's something specific to the Pixel 7?

Is your issue totally sorted out?

I have a MY and I am having this problem with my pixel 7 (other phones are ok).

For me it doesn't matter if I leave the Bluetooth on or off, the pixel 7 forgets the pairing all the time. It's getting really annoying to have to repair for every drive.

I've gone through all the settings (on both the phone and car) and am having no luck.

The app works fine on the phone (entry/lock/climate/etc), it's just the pairing of the phone for calls.

I may have figured it out for anyone who is having this problem. There is a reset option located under Settings->System->Reset Options->Reset Wi-fi, mobile & Bluetooth (this on my Google Pixel 7).

Once I did that the car has remained in my bluetooth connected devices. I had to re-pair all my devices/wifi but it has been holding steady for 5 days now.
