How the heck do you get the text message feature on the infotianment screen to work? My iPhone is connected through bluetooth, and phone calls work fine, but text messages do squat.

It works on the Gen 1 cars with the iPhone and there is no reason why it shouldn't work on a Gen 2 car. There is a setting on the phone that you have to change in Bluetooth for the car. See if I can find it...
Yep illegal pretty well everywhere to use a mobile device while driving but you knew that already. That's why the OP wants to get this working I have no doubt.
dharper, were you able to get it working?
Now ya' tell me! I had the car for nearly 2 years before I figured that one out. :D
Works really well though.
Does your car even alert you that you received a text message? On my iPhone the text message alerts go away completely when it's connected to the car via Bluetooth. Phone calls come in fine but no sound plays for text messages so I have to constantly just look at my phone to see if I have any new messages.
If the iPhone is configured correctly you get a message on the screen that you have a text and a tone is played. Did you set up your phone as in the link I posted earlier? It is possible to reply to a text via voice to text recognition via Siri.

Works great on my Gen 1 car.
