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


Just a little curious how this bug is now regarded as incomplete and no
longer assigned to anyone? What kind of information is needed to make it

I can confirm this on my Bq Aquaris 4.5 (rc-proposed) and Volvo My Car
system, it connects (however not automatically) but no audio from
microphone or speakers.

>From my point of view, bluetooth is currently the biggest achilles heel
of the platform as evidenced by numerous bug reports. I am willing to
help out any way I can to test fixes to this. I have also tried to
contact the Canonical developers authoring much of the bluetooth code in
Ubuntu Touch, but not received any reply. So much is progressing at a
high speed in Ubuntu Touch, but bluetooth appears to fall between chairs

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.
