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


My Aquarius E5 will connect via Bluetooth to my VW system, but fails to make calls.
This problem was not there prior to OTA 8.5. I'd had hoped that this problem would have been resolved by OTA-10.

The problem has got worse for my handset.
It will connect fine, but when making call, the Bluetooth will be discount and connection become difficult  if the phone does not get rebooted. 

The problem I think for me, lays with the phone's ability to use the
car's system as a loud speaker. The call does connect but I cannot hear
the recipient, nor can they hear me.

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.
