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


I updated my Auquaris E.4.5 with OTA-10 today and tested with my Alpine
Car Audio.

After a little bit of a struggle (one crash of the bluetooth on the
phone and a phone reboot) it connects now and shows the phone symbols
(signal strength and battery) on the display of the car audio.

It also does ring when called and I can pick the phone up pressing the
button on the car audio, but neither the speaker nor the microphone of
the the Alpine seem to work and the speaker and microphone of the phone
seems to be switched off.

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.
