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.

I got sidetracked and forgot about my post. No I haven't tried it yet. I have no intention of texting while driving, I know if I try, I would end up in a ditch pretty fast. I just wanted to be able to read a text on the screen.
And just in case you were not aware of this. The car will NOT let you read a text message while you are moving. It will read it to you with a lovely feminine voice. You can only read a text yourself while stopped.
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.
Yes. If I remember correctly, there is a ding sound and a message appears at the bottom of the center screen with options to have the car read it or reply with a pre-programed response. However with Android Auto running you can reply by voice text.
