Dragon Dictation and voice memos


Has anyone got the dictation to work for replying to text messages? I can dictate okay, and it converts it into text; but then after clicking 'send' and it saying 'the message has been sent via Mark's iPhone', the message actually hasn't sent: the recipient doesn't receive it, and it also doesn't show up as being sent in my iPhone.

Also, while text messages show up on idrive, emails don't (even though I had them both showing in the old idrive on my E82.

Also, I can't seem to get the voice memos to work: I can record, but then when I click 'play' to hear back the message, nothing happens...

Any help appreciated

From what I understand and have been told, it is a limitation of the iPhone. The car is not built around a single phone, its built with capabilities that are usually more advanced than what a single phone offers. Blackberry phones have the most functionality as of now-until Apple hopefully gets on board and creates an update.

The thing is this: Apple unfortunately does not care about the small amount of people using iPhones in BMW vehicles, so they don't make it a priority to write software around our car.

The good news is that the car is capable....but only when the phone catches up!
