Does this work with Android?

And when you go to the BT Settings in the phone and to the device (car) what protocols/profiles are listed there. On my Honda AFAIR it is only A2DP, AVRCP and HFP.

I can second this. My partner’s Subaru BRZ does not have sms functionality. Bluetooth works (mostly) well otherwise. This is through SFOS, not android. Xperia - lang EN

This is a feature request rather than a bug. These is no implementation of MAP profile.

It worked perfect with Android-phones.

I don’t know how to get the information about protocols. In the car-Bluetooth management, I discovered that the Xperia is shown with its MAC instead of its name (already discussed in another topic).

Edit (additional information): The battery-Symbol in the car-display shows always 100%, independent from the real, actual battery state of the phone.

Hi Nephros,
your link shows your future request from Oct '20.
Do you think this will be established / supported in the next time?

Answering this is pure guesswork obviously. My estimation is no and probably never.

Unless there is a community effort to implement the missing bits of MAP and MSP profiles/protocols. Ideally done in the SFOS fork of bluez5/obex and getting that merged into SFOS proper.

Thanks for posting this @Speedy-10, and nice to see you using Bugger to post it :slight_smile:

In the interests of keeping things clear, and following @nephros’s suggestion, I’ve moved this to the Feature Requests category; I hope that’s okay, but it’s likely to get more appropriate consideration there.

Thnaks for your work.
