There is a bug in IOS6 vs iDrive and emails do not work, unless you go to notifications>email while connected and turn off then on each email notification and then emails work until you turn off the ignition, if I do this with each start then works.
Do u have an iPhone 5?, I do not get "show images" on my iDrive for my iPhone 4S.
Images should be for incoming calls picture ID, I guess.
There is no way you can reply by txt or tel call from a SMS.
