Not a major issue this, but I have been told by JLR dealer that it is possible for text messages to automatically display on the screen when they come in through a Bluetooth connected phone.
I have tried everything I can think of to make this work and failed miserably.

SIMPLE QUESTION, fellow DS drivers - has anyone been able to get their iPhone 6 running iOS8.2 to show up incoming text messages on the DS screen?

It may be that this has been disabled as a safety thing and if so, that's fine......but I would really like to know it is NOT possible so I can stop trying! :lol:

I've read somewhere that they cannot be displayed on the screen whilst the vehicle is moving but they can be read out. No idea whether it works with iPhone or over Bluetooth as opposed to tethered. I'll try to find where I read aout it.

Edited to say I was wrong the message alert should show when driving and allow the message to be seen but you can't reply unless stationary.

Thanks, Lofi. I just repaired everything, and followed the LR instructions to the letter, enabling notifications, scrolling etc etc. The only thing I can find that is inconsistent is that JLR give instructions for iOS 8.1.1 and the most recent version of iOS is 8.2

Still shouting "HELP"!!

I have a Moto 4G connected by bluetooth and text messages just started to appear as soon as I paired it up.....you cannot read them whilst vehicle is in motion though.... :)

Hi, to get your iphone working.

No need to pair your phone again, simply go to settings-> bluetooth-> select the device, 'I' information to the right of discovery sport in connections then turn show notifications on. Now connect to the discovery sport Bluetooth and get someone to send you a text. This worked perfectly for me. In fact it's the same settings for other Bluetooth hand free kits. Hope that helps. Ps if driving the system will only give you the option to read the message for you. You
Can only view when at a standstill.

Hope that helps.

Stoopid me! It DOES work, but only for conventional text messages. It doesnt work for iMessages on iPhones. I should have guessed!
For anyone else out there with the same issue as I had, sorry - you need to de-select imessages on the in-car phone and/or have the sender only send messages as texts.
Duhhhhhhh!

Understandable, but an enormous pain

I was told it didn't support iOS messages at all. Not that it's something I am really bothered about.

Not sure about the JLR system but the VW group system does not stores the message on the car, so when you get out and check your message on the phone it's not there.

I must be going mad, I can't get the messages to come through. I can't find the 'I' button for the messages. Any more help would be appreciated for iphone 5s.
Thanks
On your phone go to Settings>Bluetooth, then click on the i next to Discovery Sport in the My Devices section, on the next screen you should be able to turn on notifications.

It tickles me that the safety message that you have to read on the screen is longer than any text someone will send you! But the nice women reads them out if you want.

Hi I just tried this, and after pressing the " I " on the iphone blue tooth screen, all i get is
FORGET THIS DEVICE
SYNC CONTACTS (ON)
GROUPS
PHONE FAVORITES (TICKED)
PHONE RECENTS (TICKED)

ALL CONTACTS (TICKED)
BLISS EXCEPTIONS (NOT TICKED)

The only thing that I can see is different, is my car is showing as Land Rover, rather than Discovery Sport

Nubmaster I think you have the uprated system as your signature says "Entertainment Pack"??

If so its likely the hard drive based system won't read out your messages, this is the case in my current XF with this OS.
