Is there an official word on 730 RHR and SMS texting?

Sorry if I missed this in my search, but I am still unsure about what the deal is with the SMS texting feature through the radio. I recently picked up my 2012 Overland and have my iPhone 4 paired up and functioning flawlessly through the RHR. The manual clearly states that this radio has the SMS texting feature, but I cannot get it to work, and from a search no one else has it working either. I apologize if this has been covered, but I saw nothing recently, and v ery little talk about it in posts. This was supposed to be a feature of this Grand Cherokee and I would like it to work. Whats the official word?

Thanks,
James

I have a Samsung Focus and I wanted to send a text message out (text messages coming in can be read aloud without a problem). I have my phone synced up through bluetooth. Try as I might I couldn't figure out how to create and send a new text message. Then I realized that I had to initiate the request from the phone itself. On the Samsung Focus it was just a matter of holding down the middle button and waiting for the phone to go in "listen for my command" mode and talk. I just said "text so-and-so" and it did it. I was able to "write" my text and send it through the car's stereo.

Perhaps yours is the same.

Good luck.

James,

As far as I am aware, for SMS texts, reading aloud, notification, responding, there is no device supported by uconnect on the 730N RHR This is based on the official release document from Chrysler http://www.jeep.com/download/pdf/Phone_Compatibility_Document.pdf

Another discussion here: 730N RHR - SMS Option Missing?

SMS voice control is a delayed feature and will only work on Bluetooth phones that support MAP when it does get launched. Iphone does not support the MAP profile

Re: Is there an official word on 730 RHR and SMS texting?

Ok thanks for the heads up guys I appreciate it. I will look forward to this feature working on a future mobile device. Last question, will this feature automatically work if a supported phone is paired? or will the RHR require some sort of software update?

Thanks again,
James

So, what can you tell us about the release schedule? What have been the delays (if any)? Will this be a firmware upgrade (I assume so, as the WAP enabled devices I have tried can't work with this feature)?

Thank you!
