Uconnect and iPhone iOS8 thread

Anyone brave enough to try the iPhone iOS 8 with UConnect in their WK2 and care to report on what does and does not work?

I know I had issues getting text messages to show up on iOS 7.1.2 but finally figured it out.

I figured as often as updates to either platform it may be worth having a common thread to discuss any current and future updates.

I was able to have my text messages show up just fine with iOS 8 when I went to lunch today. Still can't send text messages like other platforms so the functionality is still the same from the previous iOS.

I see no difference than iOS 7, music still plays through Bluetooth and I am able to access my contacts via voice commands. Text messages still come up on the display, but sadly you still can not create them through the uConnect voice commands.

I upgraded to iOS8 and am having problems playing music and podcasts when the iphone is connected via usb cable. I can navigate through the menus and select various items, but the selected item usually does not play and when it does I cannot scrub backward or forward through the track.

But now you can easily reply by just saying "hey Siri" and not have to touch your phone if it is plugged into a power source
