IPhone 6 problems connecting to Navigator VI

I have paired my crash helmet communication to K1600GT (2017) and then paired my Iphone 6 to the Navigator VI and also downloaded the Garmin Smartlink. My iphone is telling me the Garmin is connected, however, there is an intermittent connected/connecting toggle going on the Garmin and the phone icon is greyed out on the home screen of the Garmin. My dealership is confused why this is happening. Has anyone experienced this issue and managed to resolve it so the phone remain connected to Garmin and can be used? I have had a few BMW bikes and always used the Garmin and communication package with no problems. On my previous bike I had the same iphone and there was no issue there either.

Re: IPhone 6 problems connecting to Navigator VI

The only way I got my setup to work was pairing the phone and the headset to the VI. If you watch the Nav 6 screen, it raises an alert about phone disabled because there is no headset connected. iPhone 7 Plus, Nav VI, 2016 K1600 GT.

If you run a Sena 30K can you just pair it with the bike (radio & GPS) and pair it with the iPhone? Oh but the iPhone needs to pair with the bike to play iTunes! WTF
