    **Edit** - I now think the bluetooth module in my Pre might be suffering some issue. Can a few people please follow these tests with their Pre's and let me know the results?

    With music playing over bluetooth:

    Press the pre against your stomach and cover the Pre with your hand. Does the music playback over bluetooth totally choke and basically come to a stop?

    Standing, with the Pre in your pant's pocket, cover the Pre with your hand. Does the music playback over bluetooth begin to stutter?


    I've been using my Pre to track my runs and play music over bluetooth (Cardo S2 headset) during the run since I got it. Typically I run both FitTrack and Work Out Tracker at the same time as well as an audio player (either NaNPlayer beta or the Remix player). Yesterday, out of nowhere, the audio playback in this scenario has become horribly stuttery if I have the Pre in my pocket. I have to hold it during the run to keep it from stuttering, which it still will occasionally.

    I've never had this happen before. I don't think it's tied to either audio player, nor does it seem to be tied to either GPS tracking app. I'm not running anything else at the same time. I've tried closing either one of the tracking apps and the problem still persists with either one running.

    Any thoughts on the cause and solution for this? Besides upgrading both media apps and Work Out Tracker recently I can't think what might have changed on my Pre since the last time I ran and didn't have any problems.

    The only thing I might have changed that I can think might have caused the problem was enabling Cell Stalker and Switcharoo to run in the background (the latter should only updated once an hour). I've uninstalled Cell Stalker and have disabled Switcharoo, haven't yet had a chance to test it but it doesn't seem likely that either was the problem.

    Thoughts?

    The phone slows down considerably and randomly when you use the gps and bluetooth streaming at the same time. I think it's just an issue with the Pre as a whole. It's never very prolonged for me but it does happen sometimes.

    True, it does slow down during audio playback and GPS mapping doesn't help, but I've never had this kind of problem (2 days in a row) even after reboots. In my edited post I describe a couple of test scenarios that test bluetooth audio playback which have been problematic even with GPS tracking off. Can you please test them and see if you have the same results? I'm trying to figure out if my device hardware has suddenly taken a dive...
