I am very interested in this, too.. I've wanted to get my FR to connect to my bmw car system ever since I got it.. and it always played up, didn't want to talk to the car at all.. FR was happy with the BT connect but my radio was still asking for data (IIRC, the error codes that the FR BT stack gave was that it got a PBAP request which it just simply dropped due to lack of support).. So a connection never ever got properly established.. :(

I'll be back home and able to test things on the 3rd of January..
