    Hello. I just got my iPhone 5S about a week ago. Switching from Windows Phone so this is my first time on an iOS device. I'm having trouble however getting my phone to read my texts to me while connected to my car via Bluetooth. I have a Nissan Maxima 2007. I paired my iPhone with it but Siri doesn't read texts I receive. Does anyone know why? It worked perfectly with my Nokia Lumia 925.

    Thanks!

    Siri, in and of itself, can read text messages. Having said that, whether or not your vehicle's Bluetooth function interferes with that ability, I can't say. The Voice feature in my car sounds like Siri, but it is not. Have you tried using the device's home button instead of the vehicle's voice feature button to have Siri read your text messages over the vehicle's speakers?

    I use Siri to check texts, emails and voicemail while driving with my bluetooth headset.

    Siri is a great way to check your texts.

    No I haven't tried that. I'm sure that would work but it's not ideal. On my Lumia it automatically asked me if I wanted to hear a text that I got while driving; I didn't have to touch the phone. Oh well, it works fine for phone calls that's the important part.

    Just go to the bluetooth settings on the iPhone and clicked the "i" icon next to The bluetooth device you want the notification for under devices then toggle the "Show Notification"

    The only option is "forget this device"

    Your car should already be set up for Siri but there is another way.

    Go to settings, general, accessibility, then VoiceOver and scroll down and select speak notifications

    What're you doing to attempt to get it to read your texts to you?

    Did you ever resolve your text reading in the car. I have just changed to an iPhone from a Lumia 925 and miss that capability?

    Cheers

    I have an iphone 6s and it doesn't have the feature "show notification". iphones are not equipped yet to receive text messaging through bluetooth in cars, especially for Toyota's. I can't speak for other vehicles.

    I have a 2012 Toyota Camry and I can get the notifications to pop up on my display in the car but it won't read them to me. I have the iPhone 5S. I would really like the texts to be read to me automatically as they did with my Windows phone but haven't figured that out yet. I have tried the voice over feature and that does not work either. Car Play does not work in my car.
