    You can also select custom in contact app and it will combine all your accounts,sim contacts in your contact app , just another option instead of import to your Google account
    Yes i understand that as well. But unless contacts show up in phone it will not load onto my vehicle for contacts..so seems no matter what i do phone still show no contacts. But they show everywhere else.

    When i look at sync contacts i do not see contacts listed as an account. Should i?
    Go to Settings>Accounts>Manage Accounts, then select your Google account. Then tap Sync Account, and look for Contacts there. Is the toggle on? If so, when does it say was the last time it synced?

    Also, in the Samsung Contacts app, tap the menu button at the upper left, then tap All Contacts. Does your Google account show up in that list?

    I didn't see you mention this until now -- it seems odd that your car system will only pay attention to the contacts in the local Phone account, and not those in your Google account. Which car do you have? Is it a factory-installed system, or an aftermarket?

    But I've always been able to have the contacts from my Google Contacts account show up in all of my cars.
    @wizzard44, you're connecting via Bluetooth, and not via USB, correct? Go to Settings>Bluetooth​ and tap the gear icon next to the car system -- is the Contact Sharing option turned on?

    You have option in your car system to log into google ? It can sync through Bluetooth from your phone the contacts, but the radio itself needs to be Andriod radio to do that

    Nope, I've never had an option in my car systems to log into Google. A decent system should just be able to sync whatever contacts are in the phone's Contacts app (regardless of the account).

    The best way to post a video here would be to upload it to the cloud (like YouTube or your Google Photos) and then share the private link.
