Hi just bought S23 phone and all set up,  only problem is can set up hands free via blue tooth in my 2008 Freelander HSE and all works fine when connected,  but the system will not auto connect like my last phone which was not a Samsung,  did all the reset things but still no joy, strange thing is if I have connected manually to car and then left car for say 30 min or so it auto connects sometimes,  but say next day no chance, I have to manually connect and that can take 2 or 3 attempts before it sees phone ???? any help out there appreciated .

Try adding the car as a trusted device in settings, lock screen, secure lock.

Hi just go into secure lock, not secure lock settings. I would suggest pairing in the car first.

hi thanks for help ..tried this and added as trusted device,  but still dont auto connect, It has done randomly only after being connected few mins before and then power of in car and back on, its like it forgets car after a small amount of time. Can connect manually with car controls every time, not looking for each other at power up in car ??? Ive noticed Samsung bluetooth symbol only shows when connected not like other phones that show symbol when BT on all the time
