I just got me Leaf Friday evening and loving it! Installed my 220V charger today too
I have my iPhone connected via Bluetooth. When I get a message, it will pop up and tell me. I tell it to read it and it reads the date and time (annoying) as well as the message. It does not tell me who sent it. I can't seem to figure it out! It's driving me CRAZY!
Hah, and here I thought it would be something I would truly miss (reading text messages through the car is something new for the LEAF, my '12 doesn't do it with an iPhone; but of course my ICE VW does, as well as let me know who its from) so sorry no idea … I'm sure someone with a brand new one can chime in. I would imagine it does at least mention that you have one and then ask you to read it or not … not identifying could be related to pre-loading your phones contacts but could be wrong; if w/o that I would think it would give you the phone number sending the text.
EDIT: one interesting side note -- my company required us to switch from Windows Phone 8 to iPhone 5s a number of months ago; we have 4 cars so had to recall this (new email system) and I wasn't just imaging it but the WP8 phone would automatically ask if I wanted it to read any new text messages through the built-in BT in my '12 SL LEAF (has the navi system, etc.); not so with iOS, not sure why but just won't do it. Also, while driving in today, did notice a 'data' tab looking through some settings (while of course stopped at a light) but believe this is related only to CARWINGS connection as its set to AT&T (automatically).
Perhaps this might also be different depending on the phone's OS (anyone with a '15 LEAF happen to have a WP8 or Android device and has listened to text messages?)
