Uconnect reading out emails?

Has anyone had luck getting the Uconnect system to read out their emails from their phones? I have an iPhone 6 and when I first turned on the notifications in the phone settings on, it would read out my emails while I drive. It only worked for about a day. If I would disconnect the phone and reconnect it would work, but after one power cycle of the Jeep, it wouldn't work anymore. I have a feeling it's something to do with the phone. Android guys having any luck? iPhone users?

Do you mean emails or text messages?

My mistake. Misread your original post. I thought you meant text.

Re: Uconnect reading out emails?

I don't think it's capable of reading e-mail..text only from what I understand...

I thought so too, but I promise you it worked. I even sent myself some emails to make sure, and it read them out to me. Like I said, as soon as I power cycled the truck after re-pairing the phone, it stopped working. I feel like it was the phone screwing up.

On the iPhone, in Bluetooth tap in the "i" beside UCONNECT and slide ,"Show Notifications".

Re: Uconnect reading out emails?

There is one unconventional way you could get short emails or at least the first part of long ones read. Write a rule for your email program to resend your emails to your carrier's text email address. Your carrier will then send your email as a text message to Uconnect which will then read and display it.
