First Major Google Nexus One Issue

Over the past few days I have really gotten to put the Google Nexus One through its paces. Search, multiple mail accounts, lots of text messaging, maps, navigation, voice commands ... I've been giving it a real workout.

And all went well until ... I have run into my first major problem with the device. I'd been using a Bluetooth headset with it all last week with no problems at all. But in anticipation of 10 hours or so of driving this weekend, I paired the phone with my car, only to find that it would not work at all. Well, it paired, but that's about all it did. It won't connect properly, when it does connect you get piercing shrieking sounds instead of audio, it won't dial ... it's basically useless (for anything but showing battery and cell strength).

Judging by the threads online, this is a common problem with lots of different cars (most of which actually use the same Bluetooth controls). It does not appear to be an Android issue, as users of others devices are reporting that all works well. This most likely is a problem with the HTC hardware. And this could be a deal breaker for me. :-(
