I bought an Infiniti Q50 and discovered I can receive text messages with the car but not send. Has anyone with this car or another one that can text message through the console jailbreak'ed (sp) their phone and found a way to send text messages?

More than anything this may be something the cars interface isn't setup to handle. I'm not aware of a tweak designed for this specific task, but I suppose a work around would be to use Siri to respond or send a text. I'm thinking as long as you had the device on the charger in car with the 'hey siri' function turned on you could do this hands free. That's just my first thought on a work around

Yeah, you are correct, thanks. There is a text app built into the car so it actually retrieves the text messages and you can read them and reply from a touchscreen if you are stationary. The reply is where the issue is.

I'm pretty sure Apple locked down bluetooth so the phone could not get hacked via bluetooth and sending text through the phone and out to the car and then out to the recipient is one of the issues with locking down bluetooth.

I would think the issue is more your car than your phone. They don't want people to be writing while in movement.
If you want full bt then you need to install something like btstacks

Like I said, apple locked down Bluetooth to prevent something that is called Bluejacking. If you ever watched the show Mr. Robot on USA here is a real senario used to hack bluetooth:

Yeah it's your car software not the phone. My jeep wrangler unlimited doesn't even let me type in a address in GPS if the car is moving.

This is probably has good an explanation as most:
Why iOS 9.0.2 for iPhones fixes security while Bluetooth and in-car connections suffer?

Yep, a lot of things are disabled while the car is in motion. Even in park I can't send text.

Lol yep 2016 already old technology !
A car can be from 2016 and have no CarPlay like yours.
Next time research and buy the car your phone requires as the main point.

People nowadays think cars are for driving.... please how ridiculous. We all just want to play w our iPhones on a slightly larger screen. Lol

It's a shame the segregation due to competition. Did you try btstacks like I recommended for full bt or not?

Lol :D
I heard the new BMW's are fully compatible with the latest iOS:D
are bmw's really compatible? Still not on the list.

Listen, I was just looking for a workaround for outbound text. I certainly don't need your advice for anything, let alone car buying decisions. As far as the rest of that crap your spewing, not even going to bother.

At the iPhone hacks section.
We were just joking bud. You certainly dont switch cars for a text message incompatibility:D
It's not something you can correct on your end, the car audio system will need to be updated the way it handles those notifications.
Seems like every time Apple updates the iOS there's more and more car manufacturers stereo issues that come up.

I knew you were joking around, the other guy just sounds arrogant. Especially on this site, sometimes hard to tell when someone's being snotty vs trying to be clever.
