My MY18 HSE (Meridian with CD) reads text messages but I had to enable "show notifications" in my iPhone 6 BT settings. Reading messages is not mentioned in the 2018 manual but it is in the 2017 non cd manual.

Below is a response from LR when I raised this point.

Dear Mr Bartley,

Thank you for continued patience.

I have raised your question with the Product Team to see if they have any further information about the text message function being installed on a 2017 Discovery HSE Luxury.

I will update you with their response in due course.

Yours sincerely

Further to my post of June 18 I have used ReadText 2me on android rarely but it does work. The trick is after it has asked a question such as do you want me to read out the text or about a reply you must await the "ping" before speaking a reply.

There are many business text messaging app and software available in the market that help companies to manage their sms services effectively. I’ve gone through a few of them to see which one is suitable for my business, as we are interested in applying sms marketing services for our company.

The 2019 build D5 HSE does read out texts. I had a 2017 D5 HSE - no texts, now have 2019 version - this one reads texts. Maybe its a software upgrade?

My 17 HSE had a firmware upgrade at last service, which added Apple CarPlay and Android equivalent. It can now read out messages and let me dictate replies via my Apple phone.
