CP1251 (Windows-1251) is not a transliteration, but coding of characters. The difference is: transliteration changes the content of the text, while different codings always transfer the same text, but use different bytes.

"Windows-1251" is already selectable in the extended options (instead of the default "UTF-8").

PLEASE add to "Final convertation" convert to utf-16 and the head unit (daewoo agc-0070rf) of my nissan at last will see Cyrillics.

I sent you a test version which is able to encode the whole VCARDs in UTF-16. Set it in "Character Encoding" in advanced options.

How did you find out the device needs UTF-16? Is it documented somewhere?

Thank you my friend but unfortunately :cry: it hasn't worked, my radio still shows abracadabra instead of Cyrillics.

About utf-16 I have learned from this article https://www.drive2.ru/l/2089275/. The truth this post was about mp3 tags.

By the way people write that from iPhones this model of radio sees Cyrillics

Did you already try ISO or Windows Cyrillic encoding?

Hello. Still need utf-16 for the head unit (daewoo agc-0071rf) of my nissan. Cyrillic doesn't work with iso-8859-5 and windows-1251.

Why do you think UTF-16 should help? This is so far off the specification that I don't think anybody supports it.

because the use of such encoding in the mp3tag program creates the correct names of mp3 tracks from a USB card

I understand. But UTF-16 is officially specified for mp3 tags, while it is not specified for the VCard format used in the phone book transfer.
