All VI owners, We are all aware that the Media player does not control the media on your phone at this time . Currently, you can initiate play manually form the phone or by using Siri in the voice dial function. I was told by a grumpy Garmin employee that the problem had been fixed by their engineering team but that it was being eval'd by BMW for suitability at this time. A fix is coming is the bottom line. The number for Garmin OEM direct line is 1.866.408.7419 When I asked the tech if any of the high line features of Garmin's current line of Moto GPS's would arrive on the Nav VI he responded that it was not part of the initial feature set and that he doubted it. SO... no APP notification or Text message notification on BMW's Premium priced GPS device in the near future. When you see Garmin's unit at a much lower price offering the features our unit should have you feel a little gyp'd https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/536397 I have published the Garmin number here for you to call and add your "bean to the Jar" if you will to see some of these useful features to our unit. Please let the BMW folks at BMWNA and the upcoming rallies know your mind.
