I've had my car for 4 months now & I should have posted this a longgg time ago but I never ended up doing it, so here it is..

If my Iphone connects to PCM, and I'am listening to am/fm radio and I receive a text message, why do I NOT get an audio tone? (Yes, my phones volume is on, and up).

MyIphone must either be on the Bluetooth setting where I stream music from songs on my phone, OR connected with a cable to the USB outlet in the armrest while streaming songs from my phone in order for me to hear the text msg tone.

Its annoying to know that if someone texts me and im listening to the radio that I will NOT know im getting a text. WHY?! Am I the only one?

If the phone rings, then of course everything is fine... it seems to be only with texts where I can't hear anything and have to actually pick up the phone & look to see if I've received a text.

/end rant

If your phone is connected to PCM for BT audio as well you will need to change source to BT audio to hear the alert. I hear the alert as I use BT Audio all the time as I have posted in a separate thread on BT audio pains.

One option is you could change/update the BT profile to connect to PCM to phone only and not use the media audio part. I can do that on my Note 4 but so not sure how it works in Iphone.

I don't think you are understanding my question...
How do I hear my text msg tone if iam listening to the radio? (My phone is connected to PCM while Iam listening to the radio).

I CAN hear the tone if im streaming music from my phone via BT or while connected by cord.

I CANNOT hear it if the radio is on though.

Here's my two cents.

Once PCM is connected to BT go to the BT section in the 'settings' area on your phone. There it will indicate with a check mark that your phone is connected to PCM. Press on the "i" in the circle next to it. Select enable notifications or something similar.

Have your programmed your iPhone to "Notify" PCM?

Sounds like you haven't.

I haven't been able to display texts or emails like PCM claims I should be able to do. I've been playing with my settings to see if I can figure it out, but no luck yet...

I posted this before, you have to enable Show Notifications in the iPhone Blutooth settings for PCM.

Regarding seeing texts and emails on the PCM, it's definitely a cool option but does anyone find that you have to press the screen WAY TOO MANY times just to read a simple text??

Do you need a certain option with the PCM in order to view texts on the PCM screen?

Nope but you do need a phone that is compatible and has the right settings selected. Which phone are you trying to get texts from?

When I'm listening to music I don't want any interruption. I even put a gag on my wife. :laugh:
