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


Confirmed also to be an issue with:

- BQ E5
- Ubuntu Touch 15.04 (OTA-8.5)
- BMW 2 Series

1. Select Bluetooth device manager in car console
2. Car console states name of carkit, switches to discoverable mode
3. Turn on BT in phone and wait
4. Carkit appears in phone, press connect
5. Phone shows "Connected", "Excellent" reception, you can check "Connect automatically"

But no pairing appears on neither devices. The carkit has no option to
discover devices at all, just passive waiting. Also, phone shows carkit
as headphone, which is basically OK, but the carkit can also act als
multimedia player. SO both profiles should be announced, maybe that's
the problem?

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.
