Samsung Galaxy S7 Bluetooth failing

Hello, I have a vzw Samsung Galaxy S7 and my bluetooth is having a lot of trouble maintaining a connection via bluetooth with my devices. It started recently, potentially only after the most recent software update (past month or so), and the following problems occur:

1) Will lose connection to car even after re-setting up my bluetooth connection to my phone in my car (I drive a Prius and have no trouble with other phones/devices)

2) Can sync to my fitbit but won't maintain a connection so I can get my notifications like I used to (if I receive a text or a call, for example)

Is there any useful software troubleshooting tricks to help fix this? Obviously I've tried restarting and re-setting up my connections multiple times.

1. Clear cached data

- Settings > Storage > Cached data > Clear

2. Clear bluetooth data

- Settings > Applications > Application manager > Tap 3 dots on top-right > Show system apps > Bluetooth Share > Storage > Clear data

3.Reset network settings

- Settings > Backup and reset > Reset network settings

 

Try these steps, restarting, re-pairing if needed, and retesting after each.

Thanks! This did seem to work even though it sucks losing your stored WIFI passwords.
