Turn off your phone and don't text or read texts when driving. Doing so is truly moronic and iPhones don't support it.

Modular747: Let me clarify. I do not text and drive. It is unsafe and aganist the law. I see that I must explain that the bluetooth capabilty allows you to make calls and receive texts, hands free. With my previous phone, when a text came through it was read to me through the speakers in the car. Phone remains in my bag; no need to touch it. This is the feature that I would like to access with my iPhone.

Tell Siri "Messages" to read your new messages.
You can also ask Siri to compose it for you.
I think that's good enough.

Both devices, the iPhone and the car need to support MAP, Message Access Profile. iPhone 4 and later are supposed to support it, however the bluetooth profile in the vehicle may need to be updated. The old phone may have accessed it differently, but this is the profile that allows for messaging. Check this support document for further information http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3647 The vehicle radio manufacturer would need to check to make sure they are compatible.

My Jeep and iPhone bith support MAP but it still does not work for text messages. Is Uconnect not compatable with the iPhone? Any ideas would greatly help...

I've read a lot about Uconnect. You might want to check to the right of this thread under More Like This. And also check with the Jeep dealer and see if there is a firmware update for your vehicle and radio system.

Its very simple to do on iphone 4 and 5. To turn the text feature on first connect your device via bluetooth to your car's compatible multimedia centre as you would do normally to make hands free calls. Then on your iphone go to your bluetooth settings,select the connection for your car, click the blue circle exclamation point and the select "Show Notification" by toggling it on. Very simple! Not sure why all the convoluted answers in this forum! Hope this helps!

They are not convoluted answers because not all automobile Bluetooth systems support text messaging. If yours does then more power to you.
