Bluetooth connection using Smartphone Link app works great now

 

I used to have lots of Bluetooth connectivity issue on my Nexus phones with Nuvi 3597. I used to close the Smartphone Link app after shutting down my Nuvi 3597. Far the past one week, I stopped closing the app, it is always running. Now my Nexus phone connects flawlessly with Nuvi. It is working flawlessly on Android not sure of IOS.
