It appears that the latest release of the software has introduced a nasty Bluetooth bug. Before this release my Z10 worked perfectly fine with my HandsFree Link in my 2006 Acura TL. However, since I installed the latest OS release 10.0.10.672 (software version 10.0.10.85) I can pair with the vehicle however any call in or out causes the Bluetooth connection to be instantaneously dropped. The device simply cannot manage a conversation. Please note that the device itself does not disconnect (it is still paired), but it cannot service any audio between the vehicle and the Z10. Restoring to an older release of the OS fixes this issue.
Is there any way to get this resolved at all?

Any update on your test?
I spoke to a BlackBerry senior analyst last night and he has confirmed that this is a known though not extremely common issue with the new OS. They have had several reports of the same problem and have confirmed that it exists, however the cause is right now unknown as is the timeline for when it is going to get fixed. He did reassure me however that it will get fixed in the future updates.
Overall, the situation is rather unfortunate but at least I can take solace in the fact that it will be fixed.

Interesting find there. I have not tried manually switching back to BT on the device after it disconnects since the reload of the OS. Not that this is really a solution either but I will have to try this out today and see if it works and then update my case with BlackBerry if that really turns out to be the situation here.
Maybe if you have time you can report your findings to them as well? I will post back here later.

Well, it would appear that my Acura is producing the same symptoms as your '08 Odyssey. The call/connection is not dropped in that sense. The audio I/O (both mic and speaker) are incorrectly routed to the device itself instead of through Bluetooth even though Bluetooth is selected as the I/O device. Toggling back to the device itself and then back to Bluetooth works to correct the issue.
This is of course not a solution as this is not safe to do on the road and it still require manual operation of the device itself, exactly the purpose why you need Bluetooth to begin with. To add to this, incoming call management is impossible since the vehicle system will disconnect audio completly when it is not receiving audio I/O though it, so while the call stays connected it cannot be managed through the vehicle.
I will have to phone BlackBerry tonight and give them an update and a new report dump.

I am having issues with bluetooth as well it isn't disconnecting properly along with it continues to say it is connected to devices I know are turned off as they are in my other hand. Now if I force the bluetooth off and on it will connect with active devices but doesn't drop those connections properly... Hopefully they fix this in a up coming OS as I use bluetooth in my house and in my car all the time.

I just got my Z10 this weekend (love it) and immediately updated to 10.0.10.85. I couldn't get the Z10 to stream audio through my car or through my blackberry audio gateway. It would pair and connect to A2DP and remote services and the music would play but no sound. It seemed to work in my car today but only with certain songs. I believe there is a BT bug. My Blackberry mini keyboard will connect and work except for the bezel actions, which renders it useless :-(
Hope it is fixed soon!

Experiencing the same - Z10 connects to my 2013 BMW 328xi but there's no audio when playing music or trying to place a call. It worked perfectly on the previous OS, but after the 10.0.10.85 update it stopped working. Hope this gets resolved quickly.
