[Bug 1435040] Re: Ubuntu Phone (BQ E4.5) does not connect to car-bluetooth


@Nephilim1973: No, we can't "learn" anything here from Android. We have
a completely different bluetooth stack which you can't compare with the
Android one. Config files in /etc/bluetooth/*.conf don't help. Those
problems are at other layers.

There are quite a lot differences:

* different BT chip
* different UI handlers
* newer kernel with updated Bluetooth stack

We're currently working quite hard to update the bluetooth stack on
Touch (which dates back to 2012) to a newer, more stable and reliable
one. Can't give any timeline yet but it will happen soon.

What I really need is a log of bluetoothd in debug mode. See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingBluetooth for details.

Bug description:
  With my FORD Focus Car, pairing does not work. The bluetooth system in
  the car searches for devices and shows "Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition"
  and then prompts me to connect with a 4-digit pin code, but the Ubuntu
  phone doesn't react at all and after a while the car system says that
  it failed to connect.
