What fresh new hell....

Ok, so I can receive text messages on my brand new Mercedes, but I can't send them?? I downloaded all the contacts from my I-phone 6 in the car as per manual. However if I attempt to send a message to my brother or anyone who is a contact I get back "phone not supported" nag. What gives? Doesn't mater if it's tethered or not.

Car is E450 CAB. First the audio won't fade during directions ( dealer can't figure it out), now this. Getting a little ticked off that I can't perform simple tasks.

Check your pairing. Texting in both directions works perfectly on my car. I have a Galaxy S 9 phone. It works with my Galaxy S 6 too.

I received the same thing, not supported by phone. Itís an Apple thing. You can however do it if you use Apple CarPlay. You can eve respond via voice

Is it a software issue with Apple operating system or hard wear? Nice to know I'm not the only one.

Rusty.......if you have an iPhone, hold the speak button in your car until Siri comes up, then just tell Siri to text whoever from your contact list you want. Of course it works great via Apple Car Play as well.

So Ron, just curious. Does this work for you (the COMMAND function), or do you use Siri instead ?

I guess Iíll try the Siri route.

I just use Siri and honestly havenít used Comand to dictate a text. Weíve been using Apple Maps via Apple Car Play in the Kia Optima here in Maine. Have to say, itís been quite nice. I may use it more at home in the Benz.
