Help! Telephone Sort Order

Hi Guys,

I just received delivery of my first Mercedes, a 2013 C200 CDI AvantGarde, I just have one small thing I cannot figure out!

I have paired my Samsung S4 to the telephone system and it works perfectly, however, I would like to change the display of the name from Surname, First Name to First Name Surname please see below for and example:
Currently displays as
Smith, David

I would like:
David Smith

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

David

First world problems ...

Edit the contacts in your Samsung S4. Change the surname field to "David Smith". Leave the first name field blank. Of course, your car will now sort according to first names, but the display will appear to your liking.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks DrX, your idea will definitely work, however, I am going to modify it slightly and export my contacts into a CSV and using simply change the labels and import back into Google contacts!

I can control the display on my phone far more easily!
