My new S10÷ cant pair with my 2018 Mini car.

It can see the car's bluetooth connection but won't pair.

Before you ask

1) my S7 connected and worked fine

2) my wife's old s5 pairs and works fine

3) my wife's  new OnePlus6T pairs and works fine

On the car, remove phone, then just pair .this should work.

Can't remove a phone that isn't there Colin! Can't add it in the first place.

So you don’t have your old phone on the list in your car? 

Bluetooth setting on car select scan, on phone scan.

Should find it !!

I removed the old phone before trying to connect the new. Unless you didn't know,  most new cars with bluetooth can have multiple phones connected/ in the list,  Colin

Yes I do know that cars can have multiple devices connected! I have 8 on the list.

Lots  of bluetooth issues are appearing in the forums. Is this because the new Samsung's use bluetooth 5.0 and the devices don't support it?  Everything but my scale will pair.
