Default [Q] Message Access Profile [MAP] on Windows Phone 8?

Is MAP (to sync SMS and E-Mails, possibly the Calendar to devices such as Navigation Systems (Kenwood, Ford, BMW) or Smartwatches (Pebble)) functional on any WP 8 device in any version (GDR2 / GDR3)?

According to some articles, Nokia wanted to (or did already) implement MAP as part of the "Transfer My Data" App?
(e.g.) wpcentral.com/nokia-adding-bluetooth-support-message-access-profile-map-future-update

Wondering if I could get, or expect MAP Support for my Ativ S.

Transfer My Data is indeed supposedly capable of transferring SMS. It's possible to install it using a proxy to spoof the device ID.

I don't know how easy it is access such things through third-party apps, though. I also don't know about support for any of the devices you mention. If it's not available now, it's probably coming in WP8.1, expected early next year (about when GDR4 would otherwise be released) although I suppose it's possible that it's part of the next "service pack" style update, which mostly adds a bunch of business-y stuff (S/MIME email, mobile device management rules, VPNs, etc.)

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
