Default Honda Handsfreelink

My Maxx works well with my new Honda except text messaging. When I choose text messages it flashes "Unsupported". Anyone else have a Honda with this issue? Is there a fix?

I believe there is a fix for this in 4.4.3. I have a Droid Maxx that use to work in my Mazda on Jellybean but broke on KitKat.

Any possible solution? My wife's Verizon G2 (stock 4.4.2) does not appear to do sms. My GS3 (Alliance Rom 23 - 4.3) does fine on the same car. Is it KitKat? This is a 2014 Honda Civic.

UPDATE: I re-paired the phone twice and the sms functionality finally worked. Just waiting on the hondalink compatibility with android now.

I ended up buying an NFC enabled Bluetooth adapter from amazing and plugging it into the aux port on my tsx. And NFC tag in the cradle + trigger and my problems are mostly solved.

It's just the griffith vehicle dock with an NFC tag stuck on it.

You can just buy NFC tags from all over amazon. The NFC tags are not necessary as you can tell trigger to uh, trigger an action when it connects to your cars bluetooth, but I prefer the NFC tag so I can sit in my car without it putting my phone into car mode which is basically

Turn on BT
Disable wifi
enable GPS
enable mobile data
disable auto rotate
Connect to car BT
connect to a2dp BT
Enable auto brightness
turn up ringer volume
turn up media volume
turn up notification volume
turn up system volume
then it speaks out to me when its done so I know if made all the BT connections.

when I have my phone in this mode I can call out for touchless controls and it answers and it reads my messages to me

essentially the reverse happens when I disconnect from my car BT.

I have all kinds of trigger actions, like when I get to work between certain hours and it connects the JP morgan wifi network
disable GPS
disable mobile data
diable bluetooth
turn down ringer volume
turn down notification volume
turn down system volume
turn on vibrate
Launch my private VPN connection.

It also automatically turns down my screen brightness and ringer when I enter a movie theater and does the reverse of the work connect when I leave the JP morgan wifi between certain hours


At night it sets my last minute alarm in case I forget and reminds me to set a pin lock on my phone so that I dont try to use it to message people under the influence of ambien.

I have been meaning to ask, since they updated assist when I say send text after getting a text message it wants me to compose a reply by voice. I prefered the old action that sent back a message saying I was driving. I suppose I could make trigger do this, but since assist is running anyways I would prefer it gave me the option like it used to.
