I find on occasion, a simple switch off/on the iphone reboots the connectivity.

For me I am having to due it frequently, often more than once a day. Since it takes a few seconds or so for Sensus to start and then full connectivity with the phone to establish (the phone connects first, then phonebook then internet), I am already down the road driving the car by the time I have to acknowledge the internet connection isn't going to work. Restarting the phone is not desirable while driving the car, pin codes, face id etc.

I've found myself restarting the phone each time before I get into the car, and really, who wants to be doing that?

Posting back my experience with iPhone and bluetooth.

1. Reset Network Settings (no improvement)
2. Reset All Settings (no improvement)
3. Erase Content and All Settings (Nuclear option - no improvement).

Then, a 4th option presented itself - iOS 12 came out on Monday evening.

Installed it and since then all has been well for 2 days - longer than ever before. I think it may be something to do with how iOS 11 handles DHCP for tethered devices, a google search will reveal that it has a limited pool of addresses to hand out and once exhausted it can cause problems. Perhaps Apple have done something to improve this but I hope I have not spoken too soon.

There was one glitch this evening - I'm having issues with RTTI (I've started a new thread for this), so I did a full map update to 1233 to see if it would help. The second time I drove the car after the final "leave engine off" message, sensus crashed and rebooted 3 times on my journey. I had no internet connection while this was going on. When I stopped I noticed I had left the USB key in so I removed it. When I drove the car again later on, everything was back to normal, internet working though still no RTTI. I really hope installing new maps hasn't introduced something else. I've never had a Sensus crash before.
