BMW Mini Countryman.

 

With my Huawei Honor 8 (2013)  I get more information in the dispay in the car than with my brand new Galaxy S9

The Honor 8 has a Bluetooth 4,2

The S9 has (of course) Bluetooth 5

How can that be??

Any idea what to do?

Solution:

Worked on this with a phone specilist today.

"permission to share" was set ON for everything when it comes to Bluetooth, Spotify and phone contact list.

Spotify was updated.

Phone was deleted and then reinsttalled in car,,,,and IT WORKS very good!

 

There has been one or two permissions that has been locked, and Spotify needed a up date, and this togeher did the trick.

During connecting the phone get the question: Willing to share contact info , text etc". It is not allays enough to accept thiis, you sometimes need to go to phone/setting/ app  and find the right app and give permissions there too.

 

Thanks everyone here :)

 With Hoor 8 I get info about singer, album and song name on display.

  I also get contact photos from phone on display when they  call.

Honor 8  has Andrioid 7.0 and Bluetooth 4.2

 

The brand new S9 has Andriode 8.0.0 and Bluetooth 5

You are welcome. You could also contact the manufacturer of the stereo for more information.
