Sign [Q] Contacts encoding problem with car audio

Hi everyone!

I have a car (Nissan) with Daewoo non-dvd audio system, with bluetooth. And I have annoying problem with contacts (mostly in russian language) synchronisation between car audio and S3 - during incoming call I see some odd characters on car audio display, instead of russian letters.
So, I think this is because of my car audio doesn't understand encoding of phone's phonebook.
And one moment - it seems to me that contacts are not stored in car audio, but taken from phone each time.

Simple question: what can I do to see russian letters on car audio dispaly?

PS: All contacts im my S3 synched with google account.

My English is terrible as hell, sorry for that.

it's more likley that the car audio system doesn't support russian letters.
i have changed my contacts to english names long ago, now it syncs perfectly with my car, voice commands, facebook etc..
Please use the Thanks to anyone that deserves it

There is a full support of russian letters, because iPhone + car audio = no problems with russian characters in contacts. And in addition, via Bluetooth Audio my S3 can transmit MP3 tags in russian.

in that case it is something with the encoding i guess.
sorry, i don't have any suggestions for you, hope you'll sort this out somehow.

BTW have you tried to flash an aosp based rom? they have a larger language support by default.
