    Since I had the car from new only a few contacts had transferred from the phone to the car.

    I never really worried about it as you know sometimes it is nice not to be on the phone all the time ;)
    ...and mostly I dial from recent calls anyway.

    Suddenly yesterday all my contacts are listed in the car correctly.
    What changed?

    The car firmware has not updated for appx one month - so I don't think it is this.
    The car was in the SC recently but this was only to change a mechanical part and I checked no software update was applied.

    The only change I can think of is android received its monthly "security update" and I wonder if this fixed it?

    Anyone else have similar experience?

    Android 5.0.1 broke Bluetooth... 6.x fixed it.

    that's true, but in this case it has been 6.x all along so something else happened
