- When MFT displays the "text message" received notification, the notification and related action buttons only stay on screen for about 2 seconds which is not usually enough time for the driver to read the message and/or press the "speaker" button onscreen to hear the message audibly (though if your quick enough to press the button the system will read the message to you).

Is this what's happening with others here? Any tips or tricks out there to get this working more seamlessly?
Here's the voice commands that work for me(I think, I'll confirm at lunch).

hit paddle, tone,say "phone", tone, say "play message one".

UPDATE: Actually all you need to say is "Listen message 1" or whatever message number you want to hear. No need to even say "Phone".
