Discovery 5 text messaging

Post by Gwyn » Thu Jun 14, 2018 12:58 pm

Just changed from Discovery Sport to D5. Disappointed to find no text messaging function- in DS texts were read out if driving and there was a template of standard responses.
Have I overlooked some sub menu or is LR going backward on this.

Works for me with an Android phone. No idea of any settings as it is my wife's car and I seldom use it but have had text messages read out. This on a MY17 SE.

The SE uses a different system to a HSE, one occasion where the lower spec car is "better"!!

Just trying an app. on Android to see if this works. Using free version of Read Text 2me.
Will post review after use.

Just looked at D5 owner manual on ownerinfo.landrover.com and if you select the model without a CD player the manual gives instructions for text messages. If you select the model with a CD player there is no reference to texts in the Phone section.
Weird that you can pay more for a better specced model but get less!
Have not given Read Text 2me a good test yet but will post opinion later this week
