Very good suggestion- if/when it happens again, I'll check that. I did re-load CF, and that fixed my problem. (I made no changes to the BlueSoleil).
I did buy the above BT stick- it acts exactly the same as my old one. Works sometimes, not other times. It's nice when it works, but may it is annoying to have to unlock my iPhone and hit three buttons to tell it to connect every time I get in the car.
I've got 4-5 other BT items, and not a one of them has ever had problems pairing with any other device or phone. It's really annoying that we can't buy something for Windows that can work as reliably.
