I've been able to get text messaging working on iDrive, but no e-mail. Anyone having difficulty should be sure to have "Show Notifications" turned on and to have "Office" checked under "Configure Bluetooth".


1. How does this affect battery life? Aside from using Bluetooth for telephone calls and "Transferring Contacts", does this additional functionally wear the battery more so?

2. Is there a way to reply to incoming messages directly via iDrive instead of having to take your phone out of your pocket?

3. What does checking "Show Images" do?

4. Any advice on getting e-mail to work?
