It happens in my ES350 both bluetooth or wire, but not in my QX60.

Nissan motors seem to have the tech upper hand with their car entertainment systems. Seem to also be the only ones to support unicode characters, displaying Hebrew/Yiddish titles and contact names.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I think I found a solution although it was a bit time-consuming...I logged into each of my secondary gmail accounts and exported the contact list. I then added those lists to my primary account which is a Gmail account. Gmail has a very efficient merge center which allowed me to merge everything together.

Though Google contacts did merge for me different contacts with the same First and Last name that shouldn't be merged (different company name).

I went through them one by one but was still able to do it pretty quickly...

Strangely my phone is not letting me unsync the contacts for the various secondary account...the toggle just flips back after a couple of seconds...? Also the update contact gmail contact list is not fully updating with my phone...is there a way a to force a complete contact sync?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Is there any way to transfer a file (not photo) received as an email attachment or via Whatsapp directly to a computer?

My quesion was about transferring directly. I was aware of WhatsApp web solution, but that would require both the phone and the computer to be online, which was a challenge in a situation I was in.

Upload / share to Dropbox (or other storage utility), and have the computer logged in to that folder?

You guys are missing a crucial word in my question. I asked if it's possible to do so directly. This is to assume that an internet connection is not available.

Have you tried any of these local wireless file sharing apps? You need to be connected to a WiFi network same as the PC is connected.

Something like SHAREit https://shareit.one/

I don't know if this would work. I was trying to do this while inflight, and couldn't get the internet to work. Was intermittently connecting to the inflight portal, but for some reason my purchase of internet service didn't work more than a few minutes on one device and not on the other.

Is there an adapter that would let me use USB C headphones on an iPhone? Looking on Amazon it seems that many of the USB C lightning adapters will only work to charge but not for data/audio. Alternatively, I tried looking for USB C to male headphones adapter but didnít see anything...?

After hearing the horror stories I've held off on iOS13, anyone here have it and are happy with it?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

My iPhone is preset to connect to my Camry Bluetooth and often just starts playing music soon after I start the car. If I send or listen to a voicenote, or transcribe from voice to text, the music also starts once completed. Anyone else have this problem? Any solutions?

Which app does the music play from?
