iPhone 6 with Sync...Text no workie....

I know I have asked this and it has been answered before, when I got my last phone (5S), but I can't find that thread....

What settings do I have to change in the phone and or Sync to get the texts to show up through Sync? I remember it was really simple, but for the life of me, I can't remember.

Thanks, and yes I searched.

I believe you have to make sure the MAP profile in the Sync system has to be set to on. Try the following on the Sync system in the car:

1. Phone
2. System Settings
3. Advanced
4. MAP Profile
5. Set to "on"

Hope this helps. I'm on the Gen 1 system, so yours might be different.

Yeah, I think that was what I was told to do, and did last time I asked. Thanks. It worked for receiving texts on my old phone. As I haven't messed my with the Sync settings, I guess Sync just doesn't like the iOS 8.4 on my new phone. Not surprising. Sync leaves a lot to be desired.

I guess when I deleted my old phone from my Sync, it reset the MAP setting to off. I turned it back in and texting should work now. Thanks!

Hi daustin,

Don't forget to check the settings on your iPhone as well. Go to SETTINGS, select Bluetooth, tap the BLUE ICON next to SYNC, and turn on SHOW NOTIFICATIONS.

Good Luck.
