Has anyone had problems with getting the system to recognize text messages on a Samsung Galaxy S3? Just got the phone this week, and note that SYNC doesn't have the text reading capability that it had with my Droid X.

Thanks.

I have only had one text work on SYNC with my GS3.

Bought my '13 5MT Hatch with 6 speaker Sync with My Ford on 09/08/2012. Ran the gamut of problems that have been reported within this thread. Tried the usual fixes--master re-sets, updates at my dealer and an exorcism, but the problems just kept coming back.

On my 4th or so visit, the service advisor suggested replacing my Sync module with a new one, with a FREE loaner thank you. So I am now rocking "Sync VersionGen1 - V4.1.2.F", according to the info about my car on the Ford Owners Page.

She (the "Sync say a command" person) seems to handle my southern accent without problem (Siri, take a lesson!) and best of all she handles my "Mobil Apps" requests flawlessly.

I really think the Sync person on the original module was censoring my music choices and playing what she wanted to hear, instead of what I wanted. Every once in awhile, I want to hear Abba--not that there's anything wrong with that--every time she would play Talking Heads.

It keeps defaulting back to Line In even though the display says Bluetooth Media Stream. Can I get it to stay on Bluetooth audio and just press play on my phone? This is with an iPhone 5 running iOS 6.0.2.
I too have the same problem. Very frustrating and disappointing.

Unfortunately, I think a trip to the dealer is in order. When I say "Mobile Applications" I get an error that says no apps are found. Even when Pandora is the active app. Frustrating.

I had this same issue with my Samsung GSIII until I updated my operating system to Jellybean. Also answer "yes" for MAP data and check the box for "don't ask again". Hopefully it'll work for you as well.

Happens every darn time with mine too - Android 4.1

I have found a workaround though. Before you shut off the car, turn off the radio or switch to another input. When you get back in, switch it to "Aux" and it will go directly to bluetooth. It doesn't work every time, but a solid 75%

Bluetooth Audio (Labeled on the button as "BT Stereo") has to be selected in the Entertainment screen.
