My experiences with my new Galaxy SIII and Volksvagen BT premiun buyed at 2009 are this :
The phone connects very fast to car , the pairing set was good, with typical message asking for permision to access to remote SIM.I can do and receive calls without problems but i can´t access to phonebook
The car has a choice to select what memory from phone do you want to load contacts list from , but neither SIM or phome memory works when you select update phonebook on car device, the download task starts but never finish to load any contacts.It seems like if Phone don´t let the car device to access the contacts info or like the car device don´t knows how ( command )to request it.
I had try an apk called Bluetooth file transfer, and i get to send to car a Vcard with one contact, but then, due to remote SIM when car ask me what to do with that contact ,if I select to store it , the car send it to phone and get on the Samsung a messagge telling me that the car is sending me a file.
I have read in other site that UK version 4.0.4 XXLFB include a rsap version of bluetooth that works fine with VW but it
seems to be a lot of risks doing a downgrade backwards on phone.It will be possible to change only the bluetooth files from 4.0. uk on newer versions like 4.1.4 ?
Due to my bad english i try to understad that Tron_1970 user has get to transfer Phonebook to car but i can´t to understand at all secondary new problems due to did that. Please, could you give us the procedure details about versions used, and more ?
i hope not to ask something answered yet, sorry.
Music and other functions are not important for me, i just need to call and have the phonebook ¿ is it the downgrade way the solution for me ?
Well, just Today I was at VW office and new cars comes with new BT module that works fine with SIII, phonebook, music Bt, And more. but that solution cost me 700€ to upgrading the car.
