According to the book the MY16 (all audio specs) has the ability to connect to a phone and advise that a text message has been received and read it.

Im using an iPhone 4s and on connecting the phone by Bluetooth or Wired and clicking on Messages it say "not available"

Anyone got this working or is this another item that is enabled but only works on higher specs a bit like the "easy Entry/Exit"

ooo didn't know that.... ( mUst read the manual ) .... I tried the other day but couldn't see a command for it so left it and thought we didn't have it... but will try again and let you know.... was probably a cost extra as everything seems to be nowadays lol

SMS readers have been available in cars for
almost 10 years but very few phone support it.

Very much doubt Apple is compatible due to the restricted
why they implement Bluetooth.

TELEPHONE COMPATIBILITY

For a list of compatible Bluetooth® wireless technology devices, please access the Land Rover website at: www.landrover.com. In the Ownership section, refer to InControl and Bluetooth.



Ive searched the site but can't find the compatibility list, saying that a lot of the images used show iPhones.

Ok found the list. Its here and its pretty comprehensive : http://landrover50.nextgen-technology.net/?SelectedVehicleId=2066&Culture=en&CultureId=23&RegionId=1

Perhaps you have to have the phone connected via usb or the Incontrol Touch app running

Bit disappointed in this considering the hype on the RR website.
May drop them a line

lol only a phone issue if someone can actually confirm they have got it working.
If so it would be useful to know what model of car & phone they are using and exactly what setup they went through.

Any volunteers?

Your phone needs to support the MAP bluetooth protocol, I would guess.

Ok, finally got it working.

Connect phone to car via Bluetooth.
Once connected on the phone go to setting and then Bluetooth.
Look for the Evoque and on an iPhone there will be a blue i symbol to the right.
Click on this and a new menu will pop up.
Enable "show Notifications"

Now go back to car and the messages will work.

If you receive a message you will get a notification on screen and you can open the message and read or get the message read to you.

You can also respond to the message (haven't tried yet) if the car is not running (according to manual).

Happy days  :)

always happy to help my neighbourhood Spiderman lol

Just need to figure out easy entry/exit but I guess without memory seats its a no go, but then again why have a menu setting if something isn't available ?

Menu setting is there Angel but as yet it doesn't seem to do anything. It may be that you need memory seat or that my seat is low low/far back.

Sounds like a great feature to have available for when the mother in law is driving from the back seat lol
