Im having the same issue


On my car display via Bluetooth

It only happens when I receive a incoming call the number is displayed but not the name. The name is displayed on my iPhone when I receive the call but not on my car display


I have spent hours trying to fix this but nothing.

Works.

It does works ok via carplay

But not Bluetooth

Is this due to an iOS update?


My ios version is 11.2.6


Apple please hekl

Sounds like you need to get your car stereo firmware updated. Reach out to your dealer, manufacturer, or check your car’s user manual to find out if one is available and how to install it if there is.


It is up to your car/stereo manufacturer to make sure their system is compatible with iOS/CarPlay features, not the other way around.

Hi


Thank you for responding

I contacted Hondalink & they said that there is nothing that they can do that the issue is due to Apple IOS update. That I would have to wait for Apple to update their IOS version to fix the issue.


It only occurs when it’s connected via Bluetooth


It works okay via CarPlay.
