    Wow, now that is very impressive.

    Just to satisfy my curiosity are you saying that you can get it to display a recieved message onto the HU via the steering wheel contols?

    Unfortunately, I due to the limited amount of data the steering wheel controls send I could only program 2 functions for each steering wheel control button. So in order to read the SMS I would select the Tel Screen, that you see in the 2nd pic, via the steering wheel controls and then use the right hand rotary control to select the message.

    So the Steering wheel controls for the telephone fuction of the headunit have been programmed to answer a call, hang-up a call and Switch to the telephone Screen.

    Likewise for each Source i.e. CD, NAV, Radio, TV I have programmed the more common functions to a specific steering wheel control button i.e. track-up/Down for the CD , channel up/down for the Radio station and TV station and volume up/down. The last thing programmed to a specific button is the source select function

    That is fair slick man. My god, imagine having a passenger in the car that didn't know about it and you nonchalantly reading text messages while stopped at the lights. Their eyes would fall out of their head in shock. :shock:

    I am very impressed. That is some head unit you've got there.
