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).
