SMS help please...
 
I have a Cingular (AT&t) 8525.
My car is an 07 X3

I understand that its possible to get SMS messages on the nav display through Blue Tooth. But I can't get it to work.

I assumed that all I had to do was put the SMS service number in the car through the hidden menu, which I did but no luck.

I've got the Jetware mobile software running on my phone BTW.

When I look at the hidden service menu I see this:

SMSC
SMS

I put the number under SMS, no luck.

Does anyone have SMS on the nav screen working with the 8525?
If so how did you get it running????

Thanks in advance.

I think the settings under the Nav menu are for the assist function if fitted. To enable SMS to the Nav, the phone needs to be compatible.

I have an XDA Orbit (PDA) which even with Jetware Mobile won't transfer NEW SMS messages when they come in - it will allow old messages to be read on the screen, but no new messages get displayed. Jim at Jetware reckons it will be fixed in V2 which was supposed to be out in the summer...

My wife has a Nokia someting-or-other - if I pair that, everything seems to work, including new SMS's, SIM SMS's etc etc ... so I conclude it is the way the phone implements the integration, and as you have an 07 X3, I would expect the BT ULF to be the latest generation. Do you have working Voice Control by the way?

Yes, voice commands work fine with my phone. And I thought that I read somewhere that someone else had the same phone and had SMS working.
Hence my post.

Also I have assit, I've even paid for the upgrade, though I don't know why I never use it. But thought I'd try it for a year.

With the addition of Jetware I did get the signal strenght meter working reliably on the display... :rofl:

In the USA, the BT/Assist option does not support SMS.

Can this be turned on? Or is just not in the firmware?
