Am I Missing Something?

I picked my my wife's 2019 BMW X3 yesterday from the dealer. It was ordered without the wireless charging option. I noticed that there is no visual or audible notification that a text message has been received. Is this normal? If so, can some coding be done? It has Apple Car play but we have no intention of setting it up. Thanks.

Are you saying that you set your phone up with Bluetooth connection with your car, but not Apple CarPlay. When you get a text, you do not get any notification. Correct?

That is correct. No sound. No little envelop in upper right corner of screen. Nothing in notification tile.

Try this

Go into the Bluetooth settings on your iPhone and open the options for your BMW (press the little “!” To the right).

There should be an option to display notifications. Turn that on.

Unfortunately, unlike my 4 series, when i press the little "i" to the right there is no option to display notifications. I have deleted the phone and repaired it three times. I also tried it with another phone with the same results.

This was their response:

If your phone volume is turned on, and you are listening to music via Bluetooth, an audible text indication will sound once a message is received. If you are not listening to the phone's audio source, you will have to rely on your phone's vibration for text notifications.

You could try Apple Car Play ... text notification works just fine. I use it for Text and Phone but use BMW Navigation while CP is active since I like it better.

It doesn’t show up as an option if you’re in CarPlay mode. You have to be Bluetooth connected to the car to see it.

Apparently the wireless package now includes what was formerly known as “enhanced Bluetooth” but there is no mention of same in the package description. Very odd My CA confirmed same.

You would think that BMW would make that clear after all that is an extra $500 they could pocket.

I coded the ability to be notified of text messages being received, the ability to read them and have them read to me.

But is the mic over the passenger seat working? Sometimes it is just a dummy.

Since I did not order the wireless charging option there is no microphone over the passenger seat.
