I just received my New Samsung Galaxy S10 and it will not auto connect to my car. We have to use handfree talking in my state, so this connection is critical to my well being. I have tried every suggestion and nothing works. As an engineer, I don't understand what could be the issue.

Thank you very much. I was out in the car at midnight trying to pair my phone. I followed your directions and everything is working fine. I has been one week of effort trying. I was going to return the phone because in my state w have to use. Hands free devices. 

Thanks again for the help.
