Mine doesn't work with WhatsApp but does with carrier texts, which is a shame, because most of my messaging is through WhatsApp.

If it's since an update to your phone blame Apple. Their updates always cause issues. Have you checked your Bluetooth connectivity is still ok? Might be worth re-pairing the device to the car

I’d be mortified if some of the messages I receive were automatically read out to passengers!
you have to press a button to do this Mash101 :)
That's a relief! :D

Yep - but when they pop up on the screen with the Old Lady sitting next to me, I have to act a bit smartish before she grabs her specs....!

ICT is indeed capable of showing SMS on the screen when the car is stopped.
On the road, Jaguar Voice can read the SMS

There are some limitations to this as smileys /emoji are not displayed on the ICT screen (see my apple watch vs incorrect ICT display :? )

Hi Smoggysteve, as per my original post, all BT connectivity reset both on phone and in car.

Mine didn`t show up on my old Galaxy S7 when I got the car so took it in and they performed a "software update" and that sorted it. My new Huawei phone worked straight away without any issues, and you should be able to text back from the car screen as well (when stopped obviously). All on the non-pro system.

My youngest son has a habit of sending texts using "colourful language" when things are not going well with work, and having the car read them out with the posh lady voice can be highly amusing.
