I'd have to do it every was obnoxious.

But either way no systems really seem to work well with iOS6 on the iPhone 5. Apple didn't include official MAP support, I understand, but there are ways around it.
That's a good point about the notifications. To be honest, I don't really care about the car reading the texts. Usually, I keep my phone in the console so I like when the screen tells me I have a text and who it is from. When I didn't have messaging working, I could be receiving texts and I wouldn't know about them until I got my phone when I was leaving the car. At least this way, I can call them back. Until they let you dictate texts by voice, the entire procedure is fairly useless. I definitely agree that having to go in and delete individual texts is a major pain in the ass.

This is also my last Apple phone, I'm buying a Nexus 4 when they get back in stock.
