Text button unresponsive

Something has changed recently. My iPhone (running iOS 15.4) and MY connect just fine via Bluetooth as always. I’ve tweaked no BT settings at all.

But now, when I pull up one of my Favorite contacts on-screen and tap the “text” button, nothing happens. No activation of the mic to begin speech-to-text. No error message. Nothing.

And I also started getting an error message when I long-press the right scroll wheel about text only working with iOS 13 and above.

I’ve checked my BT settings, including notifications, and everything seems fine. I also tried unpairing/repairing. And none of that worked.

Any idea on what the issue is? Again, all software is up-to-date, and everything was working fine until just a few days ago.

Please and thanks.

If you use iOS device you need to go into Setting > Bluetooth > Click on the ! circle for your car > Click on enable "Sync Contacts"

If you use Android phone than I don't know if its more or less the same. But this isn't a problem with the car. The problem is on your phone.
