Replying to Text Messages

How do I get the infotainment system to allow me to reply to text messages? Doesn’t work when parked, parked with parking brake on, or moving. I can receive, but unable to reply. There are all the standard reply’s set up, but the reply icon is always greyed out.

It’s a 2017 CX-3 GT. Connected to an IPhone 7+
All software upgrades done and current nav card installed.

Thanks all.

Does this work for anyone or blocked for liability reasons?

Thanks for the reply. Too bad, would have been nice if it worked. They just upped the fines for mobile devices in Ontario.

Same here (also from Denmark, so that doesn't give much help).
And I think You can actually change the predefined messages...

Must be a country thing. Can change the preset messages, but “reply” is always greyed out.

I was thinking the same thing, maybe it's been disabled in the North American version but it's still enabled in the European version.

Don't recall if 'reply to' ever worked but now with Android Auto.

push to talk: Send text to "contact Name". - You can also use "OK Google" , I've turned that option to "off".

It reads the text back to you ; would you like to send or edit.
Haven't tried an edit - but the google assistant text-to-speech is amazingly accurate.
I would imagine similar results for Apple Car Play but I cannot speak to that.

costly for what it is, but functionality is great.

My phone's a Samsung and the available replies via the Communication Center go along the lines of:
yes,
no,
ok
I'm in a meeting
I'm driving
Call you back later.
I can access any of these and send while I am driving.
I have no issues using the text reply, just wish there was a way to make it a little more customized.
