One thing thats been a slight annoyance is the text dictation feature that for some reason I cannot get to work. I have iphone 5s connected by cable (with official Apple lightning adaptor) and have tried it connected handsfree - I have been able to receive texts whne connected either way. I have Audi connect working properly with its own Sim card.
I can receive texts on my iphone (which are displayed in the telephone menu and the car will read the texts out to me. However I should be able to send a message on reply by using the dictate message function.
My message settings in the MMi are activated (ie the 3 yr licence is activated) but whenever i try and use the voice system i always get same "This function is currently unavailable". I initially thought this may be in poorer signal areas but have tested in full 3g signal areas with same result.
I have checked through the MMI car handbook and cant see anything I have missed.
Q1 has anyone sucessfully used the text message dictation feature with iphone 5S?
If so is there some not obvious MMI setting I may have missed?
Q2 - The brochure and the handbook both suggest even if I dont connect my iphone 5S - that I should be able to use messaging using the sim in the car (which is not just a data sim) again, this doesnt work - has anyone done this?
Its a small thing but its bugging me!
