    iPhone, Can Cruze read text messages

    Hello new owner of a 2011 chevy cruze ls with communication package. I have my iphone 4 paired up with the car via bluetooth. I have been wondering if there is a way to that the iphone or cruze (either one Iphone through speakers) read out text messages? I got into a new menu the other day, did't find it in the manual, Press the call button then say access and it gave me a list of different options i didn't know was available.

    No. iOS does not support this feature. Perhaps it will be added in ios5 this summer, who knows.

    to add, the iphone allows dialing and music controls via voice. If you aren't familiar, see here:

    http://www.apple.com/iphone/features/voice-control.html

    To access in the cruze, press your handsfree button then say bluetooth. Wait for the system to say it's ready, then say voice. After a few seconds the iphone voice control prompt will play over the speakers. You can then give a command. It's been rumored that apple is looking to greatly enhance the voice control in upcoming versions of iOS, so we will likely be able to do much more in the future. The texting ability that you want is available with android I believe, so there would be reason for apple to add something similar.

    I'd have to leave that to some of the android users here. I'm not sure if it's tied to specific apps or build versions of the android firmware. I know my brother has used his android phone to dictate text messages.
