Default "SMS not available" error??

Wife and I bought a new '12 EX this past weekend. We love it. VERY happy with the build quality and options (was on the lot with 15 miles and had $1500 worth of upgrades, and basically got them down to almost invoice. very happy about that).

Anyways, still learning the UVO system, and have come across an issue. I have a Motorola Droid X, and wife has a Droid 2 Global. When I give the voice command "READ SMS", it says "SMS Unavailable". Anyone else have this issue, or a fix for it?

Also kinda disappointed about the fact that there is no option in the Sirius/XM to save artists/songs, fast forward/pause, as well as other options that are included in basic Sirius/XM head-units. I have loved my Sirius in our other vehicles for years, and now I guess I just have to deal with the "basics" of the service.

If anyone has any advice on the questions, they're much appreciated! Glad to be here.

Standard (OEM at least) Sirius/XM head units have the ability for you to store in memory, artists or songs. Then they notify you when that certain artist or song is playing on another channel. You're also able to pause/rewind at any time. Just kind of disappointed that this is not included, seeing that the memory is there.

I was just checking through Sirius, some head units come with the ability to pause, rewind and replay live radio, but not fast foward. Can't exactly fast forward stuff that hasn't happened yet. But I guess if there are some channels that are just loops or something then you may be able to fast forward.

And some of the units give you alerts when your favorite songs are playing.

Remember though, this is a car stereo system that has Sirius enabled, kinda different than a Sirius radio that does FM as well (kinda the opposite). So of course you are going to get more features with their dedicated units.

I have the Nav unit so I get the larger screen and I have the ability to save 18 of my favorite stations (even though I only listen to like 7 or 8 regularly). Overall I am happy, but I have never had Sirius before, so the "basic" features as you call them are fine for me during the trial period.

Sorry to hear about your UVO troubles though, I have an '11 so no UVO on those systems.

When I said "fast forward", I was meaning after you had already paused/rewound (word? lol) a song. Obviously can't FF into the future.

And I realize that this is an OEM unit and is probably not going to have all of the features of a Sirius unit. Just was curious if there was a work-around, or if there will be any firmware updates that anyone might know of. This unit does have the same ability yours does with being able to store channel presents. That's a nice feature at least. And still, Sirius is > * when it comes to radio.

Hopefully someone can chime in about the UVO when it comes to my phone issue. Everything else appears to work (though the speech recognition leaves something to be desired), but I would love to have that SMS capability.

These forums move pretty quick. Seems like there's a good strong community here. Glad to be a part of it.

Most phones do not support the proper bluetooth protocol to allow interfacing with the car via SMS. It's frustrating for me too.

You need a phone that supports the bluetooth "Message Access Profile"

I think some blackberry's might. I know my iPhone does NOT support it.

Does your nav unit alert you when your favorite songs are playing? If it does can you tell me how to set this up?

LED (Interior, back up, license plate), 5k lows HIDs, 6k halogen highs, 3k fogs, chrome/amber turn signals, euro running boards, factory painted spoiler, Rebadged, clear rear turn signals, Fiamm horns, husky floormats, window visors, shark fin antenna.

Damn. So (I'm assuming) only windows phones? I might have to look to see if there's a way to root the Droids to have it available. Because that's a feature I'd really like.

I think he was talking about Sirius head units, FROM Sirius (OEM). Pretty sure (after looking everywhere) that there's no option, as this is built into the UVO head unit.

Thumbs down

wow...looks like only THREE phones out of this entire list of just TESTED ones, actually have the SMS capability

that's pretty pathetic, in my opinion
