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


I have the same problem in my Scania. Pairing "works". Phone sees the BT of a radio correctly then I'm starting pairing, I give the code, radio gives me a message that pairing was correct and my Aquaris 4.5 is on the list of known trusted devices but never connects to the phone. After few seconds I get a message that the connection with the phone failed.
>From the phone side the problem looks this way: my bq shows me that it is connected to the radio. It is always connected even if I turn the radio off or click the "disconnect" button. Funny thing is that though the phone is telling me that it is connected with the radio of the car (I think it shows it as a headset) when I'm making a phone call the phone isn't trying to send and receive the voice via bluetooth. I can talk through the phone though it shows it is connected with the radio/headset.

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.
