Honestly, I did get it to work in my car, but it's really not worth it. The technology is still in its infancy. If there was a voice command for "read text messages" it would be worthwhile as a hands free function, which I am certain is what it is intended to be. But you still have to look at the screen and select the "read" feature with the iDrive wheel. By that point I have already read most text messages myself. Keep working on it, BMW. Until then, drivers should just wait until they come to a stop light.
