Text SMS with IPhone

I know the iPhone does not play nice with the Uconnect system but they say that is because of the Bluetooth MAP protocol. That is fine but how come it still does not work with the phone plugged directly into the USB port?

Re: Text SMS with IPhone

U can receive texts thru the system and can respond via SIRI. Not sure why it doesn't work thru the USB.

Re: Text SMS with IPhone

How can I get to SIRI? I heard on other cars you can push and hold talk button?

Re: Text SMS with IPhone

Aamir Ahemd - one of the main guys at Uconnect disagrees..

https://twitter.com/AamirAhm3d/statu...89495754956802

I asked him:

@AamirAhm3d so any chance Uconnect will play nice with iphones in the future? Texting for example.. Siri? please?

he responded:

@srtgeek @Uconnect follows the consortium standards for Bluetooth protocols, but the iPhone doesn't currently adhere for sending texts. :-(

Re: Text SMS with IPhone

Sounds like typical software people blaming each other. My BMW does not send texts either but it does allows me to push and hold the talk button and punch through to Siri. Siri allows me to talk to text.

Re: Text SMS with IPhone

I have my iPhone 5S connected to the Jeep via BT but how do I get Uconnect to read my new texts?

You have to enable push notifications for text on the iPhone and it should notify you of new texts and it will read them out or display them on the screen. I think that's cool, but without being able to respond to them it's kinda pointless.

Re: Text SMS with IPhone

Go to notification settings and go to the text message option and I believe it's in there as I recall. It's like push notification or something to that effect.
