Griffter that's not entirly true. What Ryan said was that HDD system can not carry out the function of text messaging due to the technical differences between the SD and HDD based navigation systems. He never said that the software is not as up to date as the SD based system. The HDD system supports such things as the HUD, tv, meridian surround sound etc whereas the SD based system doesn't have to support these functions hence why your able to have the different functions that you have. The systems are 2 entirly different systems which is annoying but by the looks of things there difference that we have got to live with.

Musher my reason for saying that the HDD based system is not as upto date is based on others comments on this forum.
Yes the upgrade comes with a lot of other add on features as part of the overall package which is probably what most buyers wanted.

Reading between the lines the technical reasons are that they are two totally different systems as you say. 
The SD system is a new design by JLR.
The HDD system appears to be a 3yr old design which is integrated to support the Meridian Sound system and other features. This is the bit that others have stated hasn't changed in 3yrs so therefore it was only up to date at point of original release (unless you guys have found additional features compared to the original release)

Ryan response is also clear that there is no intention to provide future updates to existing vehicles. Therefore if this unit is still standard issue on Dynamics (or an upgrade option) next year it would be 4yrs old unless they redesign it and add extra features.
My guess is they will probably develop their own system in time but you never know.

If/when JustDrive is released (early next year apparently) then those with the HDD navigation + InControl Apps will get text message reading (and sending) as part of that. Agree it should be part of the upgraded HDD system already though, as surely it's a downgrade otherwise?! Confused

Thanks Grifter18 and all, I'm a member of the non brolly club but great I got the text to car working today on my SE Tech with standard audio and reading to me (iPhone 5S IOS 8.1).

Couldn't get the template reply to work though (yes was stationary), mind you have set my iPhone to 3 different text replies to calls, will try tomorrow if that is it

Ok update for people

I have the SE Tech, which I was having problems with getting it to read out my text messages from my iPhone 6. It went back to dealer recently same time for new camera which they fixed but said they couldn't get text messages to work and it had to come back in as they were waiting on response.

Well I read this thread eventually with thanks from Angel posting link and I followed the instructions from Griffter re notifications settings etc and bottom line is it worked !

So yes iPhone 6 does work in an SE tech and is capable of reading out messages for people's info. Mine comes up on screen with name of person sending and message, which I can then ask it to read out.

However, it doesn't let me reply or use a template, these bits remain greyed out even when car is stationary so maybe that part the iPhone is not compatible with but at least it can accept and read out the messages to you when driving.

I just use the 'hey Siri' function to read and reply to texts ... Only annoyance is when I have my iWatch on, that responds to the hey Siri and it doesn't come through the speakers. Not found a way round that one yet other than switching Siri off I the watch.

Have to say though, I'm pretty narked that JLR have put all the effort on the new info system in that damned soft top

I use a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Not sure if it's down to the phone or Android OS but I get text read out all the time, replies and template replies are always available. Our iPhone 5s doesn't even display texts never mind read them out.
It's a nice feature, so much so I no longer use the built in 'car mode' setting that Android has. This is a nifty system, a bit like Google Drive and Apple Car Play.

The iPhone 5S will work you just have to endure the settings are correct on the phone or The car won't recognise it.

Unless you have an Evoque other than an SE tech that is, in which cars your still using old infotainment system so won't work either way.

Any help gratefully received: on my 5S handset I've got notifications allowed on Bluetooth & Messages & Remote App and have auto replies enabled.
Showing and reading texts work lovely but template replies greyed out, any suggestions?

The problem I have is that when I open the phone screen there's no mention of messages anywhere. No icon etc. I noticed it didn't look as per the manual. Strange. I assumed perhaps that was for the full incontrol app thing and not standard.

Also my incontrol app on the phone (iPhone 4s) has never worked it just bombs out when I try to log in :-(

So I think I have spent about 2 hours sitting in the car trying to figure out the various bits of InControl and I have the following to report. Land Rover Remote working. (Where's my car is it locked etc) Data Sim Card in and working. Apps working (can play music from Spotify, see my calendar etc), can search the web. But cannot get the Route Planner to work (says it cannot locate the car from the App) or the Live (whatever that is) or the voice control.
I have pinged an email to dealer but if anyone here can help, that would be great too - cheers

Read this thread with a great deal of interest. My Evoque is a 21st Jan 2016 first registered SE Tech. Don't really use text's much. (not as much as text queen Mrs Whiteball) I run an I Phone 5s and just made sure I was switched to receive notifications on the phone, in the bluetooth settings. Got Mrs Whiteball to send me a text when we were out this morning and seems to work great. Little panel came up showing who had sent the text and the lady who tells me where to go read it out for me (the sat nav lady not Mrs Whiteball).
