Syncing Apple Contacts and Displaying Text Messages

August 8th, 2018 by

Did you know that when pairing an Apple iPhone, syncing contacts and enabling pop up text messages is easy!

With a recent IOS software update, the fuctionality of how contacts sync with the vehicle has changed.

Once an iPhone has been successfully paired to the vehicle, a pop up may appear on your phone (1) asking to “Allow Contacts and Favorites Sync?” Select “Allow” to enable. (Note: This does not enable the text message feature).

Another option is to select the small blue “i” icon (2) to the right of the vehicle which your device is paired to.

The second screen displays both the ” Show Notifications” (3) and “Sync Contacts” (4) options. Simply swipe right to enable.

The “Sync Contacts” must be switched on for the vehicle to recognize the contacts stored on the phone. Likewise, activation “Show Notifications” will enable text messages to appear on the infotainment screen.

Make sure your customers, with Apple devices, know how to sync their contact list with their vehicle – for an added convenience they can use at any time.
