That could be quite embarrassing if a text lands that you don't really want passengers to hear

best alternative IMHO is a program called Vlingo (rebranded Dragon) it does the text read and write and costs a  few quid rather than hundreds for the new car!

Mine does.   I have a Nokia Lumia 820 and it works fine.   I replied to a colleague this morning when he text me and asked me to stop for milk.  I replied and told him I had got some and he text back with "you are a star" so I replied "I know !" except it sent "I know exclamation mark" ..... think it got lost in translation somewhere !!!    At least he got it tho, but he did think I had gone mad !!!!

 

Maybe it's something to do with the last update on my phone.  I now have an application called Driving Mode.  When i get in the car a wee car symbol comes up on my phone.  Before that, my phone book didn't even download and any calls and texts coming in showed as Unknown.  Now my phonebook shows up in the car as well which pleases me no end !   No point in having SYNC if it doesn't work properly.

Hope it works for you.  It just seems to be a shame to have such a great facility as SYNC and not be able to use it to it's full potential.  Now I just need to practice talking the Queens English, as I think it struggles with my Aberdeen accent !!!!

Well, when a text comes in it gives you the option of whether to read it out or not, and I said I wanted it read out, then it gives you options to reply, ignore and finish or something.  I can't remember exactly if i'm being honest.   If you can't get yours to work later on, i'll have to sit in my car and get someone to text me, and i'll take notice this time and let you know.  

 

I'm not sure the whole text from the car thing will be a 100% success tho, and maybe just ok if in a hurry, coz when I said exclamation mark, I kinda hoped it would put in a ! and not the words, so don't know what would happen if it was a longer text that needed full stops etc !!!!   On this app on my phone, I can also set it to send an automatic text if i'm driving.  it says "Driving at the moment - i'll get back to you later. (Automatically sent from driving Mode on my Windows Phone.)"   I just found that actually !

I have an iPhone 5 with the latest 7.1 update and I've just been reading through the posts for getting SYNC to read out text messages when they arrive on your phone.

 

I've just been through the MENU options for SYNC/Text Messaging and I don't see any options to have SYNC read out messages.

 

Where exactly in the menu is this option?

When your iPhone's connected, lock the screen and leave it. When you receive a text, Sync will read it back to you.
