2017 SH-AWD w/Tech and an iPhone 8. Text message notifications pop-up on the upper screen and I read in the manual it's able to "read" the text messages to you. Won't allow you to read the messages unless the transmission is in park. There's no option for this on the Phone Settings Menu as the owner's manual stated. I searched the forum for a solution but didn't get anything to solve the issue. Any ideas? Thanks.

I think you have add Carplay or go with the +18 MDXs with carplay. Siri does an excellent job reading and dictating my responses on the go.

You can have Siri read you your text using the steering wheel controls, but you must wake your phone up first. My last car, a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you could use voice control to have the car read you your text, even when you were moving. Could also read your e-mails.

Wait…I can add Carplay? Please explain how to do this.

I’ll try the Siri method as well. I’ll check with my dealer on why the “read” option isn’t on my screen.

If you wanted to add Carplay to your 2017 with Navtool:
