Hi all

For no apparent reason, I am no longer getting audible text alerts, although the text symbol appears in the display. The text alerts box is checked. Any ideas?Edited by: Willow

...and your point is Hywel? Ignore a feature that should be there.
Now that's jolly helpful. So glad my Ford dealer is only too happy to help and at no charge.Edited by: Willow

Nice to know there are still dealers out there who have the time to look at something like this. I must admit I didn't even know you got text alerts on a Bmax. Is it available on all models or just Titanium ?

On my first B-Max 2013 model, it would read out the latest text if I asked it, on my latest one 2016 model, if I ask it to read text, it says not available on this model, I only discovered this feature a week before I got the new one, so I was very dissapointed when this one would not do it, my B-max's are identical in trim both Titanium, does anyone else use this read text feature ?

My 2016 titanium x reads texts ok, Shame I don't get that many texts as its a nice feature.

Phone compatability may be an issue for some, but apparently not for you, Jack and Willow, as you have presumably used the same phone before.

I guess there is another reason we are yet to fathom.

Hi Jackkook


You may like to try this. Get somebody to send you a text when in your car. When the text envelope appears in the display, select 'phone' prompt from the steering wheel, then say phone > read message, not read text, as it won't recognize the latter command.



Sorry if you have already tried this.
