Text. Still trying to figure it out. Maybe eventually or with certain phones u can read your texts... Or rqdio stations can send song info... RDS. That is.the feature where your radio volume automatically increases when u get on the gas to drown out road and engine noise.

Oh okay!!

Thanks for the info!!

And yeah that's what I thought the text one was for.... But I have not seen where I can have my texts read to me in anyway shape fashion or form.... So I sort of abandoned this idea...

It's HD radio probably. Some FM stations broadcast their song/station info, usually those of larger populated areas.

Text is for when you have a mp3 hooked up. Idk how to use it tho. I think you hit it and it will take you to your albums.

Did you check your owners manual? Page 29 of a 2011 Mustang owners manual.

text feature will allow you to have the car read your texts, and then you can voice select with sync simple responses back that are already programmed. My phone bit dated and SAL9000 (as she has a feminine voice) wont accept my phone for that, just bluetooth. Hell half the time she can pick the track right I want to play on my usb flash drive...LOL

Haha that made me laugh!!:]

Yeah I'll get out there and read it....

I just wander how complicated it could possibly be if there is a dedicated Text button on the dash.... But it never seems to do anything....

Hmmmm i will research more into this!

Has anybody else figured this out?? Surely I'm not the only curious one!

I would love to do what one recent poster did and put an iPad in the dash!!

Except I would like to put an iPad mini.... And retain all my controls on the front..... Maybe even build a custom app to control my climate controls or something.... That would be neat!!

Ipad in the dash...errr, have fun with that.
getting the galaxy tablet when can afford such things....lacking in main job due to layoffs...which is why "Slimer" and "Bluberry" are perfect marketing tools to get me more detail/customizing work....sigh

Yeah it won't be any upgrade soon!! I can not afford it yet.... I'd have to put back money for it and save for a while!

Haha yeah you know it's be cool if I could activate Siri with voice button on steering wheel ha!!

Are talking of galaxy tab in dash? Or tablet to have in general?

Still trying to figure out the dang text thing though...

The text button simply changes how the incoming text from the radio stations is displayed.

Like station number on top or bottom.

Like

97.5
Gulf coast hit music station

Or
Gulf coast hit music station
97.5
