Pairing a mobile phone with VW RCD 510 / Kufatec Fiscon car radio

I struggled with this a bit, and ended up doing it right by guessing. Even though I should have read the manual to begin with.

So the procedure is simple (cited from manual, page 7, “Pairing”):

  1. Turn the ignition on.
  2. Make sure the Bluetooth feature of your phone is turned on.
  3. Start the pairing procedure on your mobile phone.
  4. When prompted for a passkey, enter 1234 on your mobile phone

The crucial hint is that nothing is expected to happen in the “Phone” any setup menu, as shown in many video tutorials.

So on an Android phone, open Settings > Bluetooth and make it search for devices. Once it finds it, enter the 1234 passcode (it’s was actually suggested, that and 0000. So it was 1234). Don’t expect anything to happen on the car radio’s side nor the dashboard display until the phone is paired.

I managed to pair two phones (the manual says there are up to five allowed).

I have recently changed phones (now have a Samsung Note 9) and when I paired the phone with the car kit, the search function now only gives me half the alphabet. No increase in my contacts.

Not very useful for finding people like Neil Williams – neither letter is available for the search.

Any ideas or help where might begin to solve the problem. Have deleted and reloaded the contacts, have unpaired and repaired the phone.
