Question Uconnect Messaging Feature

I've had my Trailhawk for a few days now, and I'm pretty much loving it, and love playing with all the features. One thing that bugs me though, is I have an iPhone 5s, and while I had no problem pairing it with the Uconnect system, the "Messaging" feature is greyed out. On the Uconnect site it states that the messaging feature is not supported by Apple phones (Due to something with the Bluetooth MAP Protocol), yet on the Apple site, it says that all iPhones after the 4 have the Bluetooth MAP Protocol.

On another forum, someone said they were able to get their iPhone 5s with iOS 7 and their Uconnect system to read text messages, although they still can't use voice replies to send texts. They said to enable it to do that, they had to allow notifications from UConnect. Anyone have any experience with getting their Uconnect to read texts from an iPhone?

Re: Uconnect Messaging Feature

under the iphone bluetooth options. Click the (i) button next to the device (uconnect) and make sure the button "show notifications" is clicked. That should do the trick for the vehicle reading incoming texts and some emails. Hope that works.

Re: Uconnect Messaging Feature

Thanks man. I couldn't for the life of me figure out where that was. I expected it to be under Notifications. I'll see if it works tomorrow. There's a crapload of snow on the ground now, so I'm not going out there lol
