 Pardon the poor quality image.

The update to Android 12, besides bringing the annoying and persistent uninstall gear VR notification, has broken some bluetooth functionality as noticed when paired with my Skoda Yeti 2016 (VW group car with Multi function display in the odometer console).

Audio streaming, Calls and battery level indicators work fine, but now on the car MFD, Carrier Name and Signal Strength are not being displayed.

Carrier Name shows as Unknown and signal bars show empty.

I have tried resetting network settings, re pairing with car, resetting car phone/ radio even though it works fine with other phones. No luck yet. Have not tried resetting all settings yet since that may be cumbersome.

Is anybody else facing the same? Any tips are welcome. Samsung please look into this. Cheers

I have noticed that right after completing a voice call via the car, the network name and and signal bars show up on the car, but : 

1. It is only temporary - about a minute, then the Unkwn provider and blank signal bars return.

2. The signal strength always shows as 4 bars regardless of actual.

3. If your S10e has two sims, name of the network on which the call was made is shown, and Not name of both networks as displayed earlier seperated by a slash mark (until Android 11).

As noted above by other members the issue is not specific to Skoda - seen on Seat too. Also not specific to a particular radio model, as I have the new Bolero unit on mine, whereas someone above has Amundsen.

AFFECTS MULTIPLE SAMSUNG PHONES. Just adding again that the issue is not specific to S10 series. As mentioned earlier, I have encountered it on a S20 FE 5G too, and believe it must have affected other models too after Android 12 .

06 April 2022. Still awaiting a fix. Recent software update with One UI 4.1 has Not addressed this issue. It's a shame since every time I am in my car I look at the Multi Functional Display and see Unknown carrier and No network bars, its a reminder something is broken and I am tempted to jailbreak and downgrade to Android 11 though I won't do it since the S10e is my daily driver. Samsung please fix this bugging bug!

works only for a minute and that too shows exactly 4 signal bars always (static). not really a workaround, but good observation

Apparently Samsung is taking no interest in resolving this issue. The newer Samsung phones are bulky and uncomfortable. Seems S10e shall be my last Samsung mobile.
