Well for me Driver Assist is still flaky. Yesterday it never activated after driving for 1/2 hour. Today taking the same route I did yesterday Driver Assist activated but when my son sent me a text I got a text notification but it did not read the text. We tried it while connected to my stereo via bluetooth and not bluetooth connect.
Ah-ha...that must be it. The message the Driver Assist read to me was an SMS and the message my son sent to me was from Hangouts but not SMS.
I use bluetooth to connect to my Alpine car stereo however, my 1st post talked about my phone showing Driver Assist but not bluetooth connected to my car stereo. I received a text message via hangouts and Driver Assists read the text message and then gave me the voice option to ignore or reply by voice text message stating I was driving...which I did. Yesterday I was driving for 1/2 hour and Driver Assist did not activate even though all the setting were the same as the previous days settings. Today Driver Assists activated before I drove to 200 feet. We sent a text message to my phone via Hangouts and I got my usual text message notification but Driver Assists did not read the message back. I then bluetooth connected my phone to my car stereo and and had another text sent to my phone, I received the usual text message notification but even though Driver Assists showed active on my phone it did not read the text message.
