Hello, I updated my Jolla C and there are issues with my Opel Corsa. I can connect my phone, the phonebook and phone log are OK.

But the audio part is tricky. I can listen and control the music (changing music, playing / pausing), but I don't have the name of the track. In the previous release of Sailfish OS, it was OK.

And now, I can select "show music directories" from my Car (with BlueZ 4, it wasn't possible) but the list is empty.

I know that this release has issues around car connection and Bluetooth but is seems different. So, I report it.

I have the same problems after updating (also with a Corsa). But additionally I can't see the phonebook entries. And the phone log only without the names only the numbers.


The listed/supported bluetooth profiles on the phone are: SPP, A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, PBAP, DID

Edit 2:

journalctl output if I connect the car to my Jolla C: https://gist.github.com/r4mp/8327f9752f5057c47a82de416aa7a951

Another related issue, the battery status is wrong. With 49% of charge, the car display a "full charge" icon.

It was OK with previous releases.

That's interesting, because the battery level indicator on the my car shows the wrong value since the first day (I don't remember the SailfishOS version) if I remember correctly. I had forgot/ignored this until now.

this is old issue... but sometimes after connection it shows wrong battery status (full) and after some minutes it starts to show correct. Also in my Mazda 3 I can control music without any problem, but have old problem with sync of phonebook. Most of the time when it do automatically after connection it show me empty phonebook, but if I will resync it manually (sometimes twice), it starts to show me my phonebook and history. Jolla C with bluez5.
