Text Compose Feature Gone After 4 Years?

I noticed I haven't been able to text anyone through the speech to text feature lately in my '17 F82. The reply option on my texts menu just isn't there, and when I use the voice command "Text <contact>", iDrive responds that this vehicle isn't equipped with this feature.

It's probably not a coincidence that I just passed my 4 year anniversary with the car. Do I really need to subscribe to something to be able to text from my car, or did I accidentally do something to remove the feature?

Yup. Connected services is what you need to subscribe to.

Thanks. Crazy you have to subscribe to something that's arguably considered a safety feature!

Do you have CarPlay?
