Re: Texts thru uconnect

1) Apple only supports MAP (Message Access Profile) for incoming messages and not outgoing. So you can't send outgoing messages thru their phones.
2) When there's an incoming SMS message, the phone receives the message but Apple doesn't send a long enough BT message that there's a new message so there won't be any notification of it.
So basically SMS is useless thru Uconnect (and many other vehicle brands) until Apple decides to work with them, the problem is mostly that Apple won't conform to anyone and feels that everyone else should conform to them. However that could lead to issues with other phone MFG's that already work correctly with Uconnect (and other car kits).

Re: Texts thru uconnect

That's interesting. I have an Android phone and didn't know this. A friend of mine just bought a new Chevy Silvarado and his system works w/ his iPhone, at least as far as reading incoming messages. Not sure about sending them. So does that mean Chevy must have tweaked their implementation to support Apple's non-standard support?

Re: Texts thru uconnect

have him try to voice send a text or respond to a text thru uconnect then let the forum know if he was successful or not. I can receive texts thru uconnct and listen to them but when I go to respond back it comes up on my screen saying uconnect does not support this device

which I believe it should all androids seem to work fine except the iPhone which is crazy. we are paying for a service that is supposed to be about safety I really don't care who is to blame apple or uconnect they should correct this asap
