Samsung s8 hasn't even got media audio to switch on/off .if I'd known that I couldn't play music in the car I would have stayed with iPhone.i check the web everyday to c if Samsung has fixed the problem but only c more complaints.im so annoyed that I paid £689 for a phone that doesn't do wat my iPhone did b4 I changed.samsung have blamed the car software and acted like didn't know anything about the problem, I only hope that Xmas shoppers find out about s8 before they buy for music loving kids
I'm having the same problem. I have tried just about everything - from factory resets, to going into the VW dealership to see if they could help - my headdeck which is 3 years old has all the latest updates so there was nothing that could be done. I've swapped from an iphone to a Note8, that is effectively useless for the 20+ hours i spend driving each week. Very very unhappy. However my wireless Bose headphones work fine.
I'm having the same issue with connecting to media with bluetooth. I have had no issues connecting to my headphones or Bose speaker. Did you set your performance mode to High performance and that worked?
in the car, you have to say that the phone is NOT a hands-free device and audio only...then u can make calls and listen to your music from the phone via Bluetooth to the car. Absolutely the opposite of what you would think to do. I think they did this to reduce accident while driving and playing with your phone and also to shift liability to the driver.
