    I am trying to switch from a windows car pc to an android version.

    To be honest, car pc's are a real dinosaur, so I was hoping for a lot more innovation in the android field.

    So '........... I am trying several android car launchers to try to get a feel for things.

    I have an allergy ( :) ) to Google services, so do not want any google voice search, or android auto.

    Happy with offline maps as well.

    I am now finding a problem with what I think should be one of the most basic things - that is , making and receiving calls.

    First off, I have a 10 inch android tablet on which I am trialling these apps.

    I am connecting my nokia smartphone ( android 11 ) to the tablet via bluetooth.

    NOW....... I foolishly thought that android could take care of the rest without much tweaking.

    By that i mean, if my phone is connected and sharing contacts, why can't I click on the ''phone ' icons on the apps, and get either 1) a dialler, or 2) a list of contacts??

    Am I wrong? - is that not one of the most basic things - to connect your phone to a tablet and use the tablet app to make calls using your connected phone?

    I have had no luck doing this , and have found little info on the web.

    I am sure I am going mad, but could anyone give me an idiots guide to how to achieve this?

    Many Thanks

    Not that I know the answer, but it's mind-boggling. I have a situation before where I have a phone enabled TAB and I wished to receive the call to another small android phone the way Bluetooth headphones function.
