It's been one month with the 335 now and I finally figured out how to get text messages from my Win7 phone onto the idrive. It even reads the messages to me; pretty cool.

So tonight I'm making my usual commute home. I'm streaming music from the phone via Bluetooth when I hear the chime that says I have a text message. I push the voice button on the shearing wheel and say "messages." After a while I see my new message.

A little while later, another chime. I push the button, say "messages" and see the old list. It never refreshes. Any ideas what to do?

I'd concentrate more on driving, and less on trying to read text messages while I am driving (especially in commuter traffic) . . . but that's just me. :tsk:

Given what I've seen so far you're not missing anything. It's basically a prototype. You're not missing much of anything.

That's true, they'll perfect it sooner or later.

Does it work with IPhones? specifically, the Iphone 4

Interesting question. I suspect it might if you're using the cradle or USB cable. Since I'm doing this via Bluetooth, however, I suspect it's using an industry standard transport protocal and would be vendor indpendent like streaming audio via A2DP.
