Is there a trick to the phone setup to allow my edge to receive text messages from my LG g4. My old Samsung galaxy core did it automatically.

You may have to go into the settings on the sync bluetooth connection on the phone and enable notifications.

On Android, go to Settings > Bluetooth > Sync (or whatever you named you car's connection). There should be check boxes for "Phone Audio", "Contacts" & "Media Audio". If there is a 4th one for "Messages", then make sure to check it. if it is already checked, un-check it & re-check it. If there is no "Messages" then you phone probably does not support the messaging Bluetooth profile that is required for Text message to be displayed on Sync.


Edit: Searching quickly online, it seems the LG G4 does not support Bluetooth MAP (Message Access Profile), so it would probably not work to get messages on Sync.

Alao, make certain you have the latest OS installed. When I got my S5 years ago, the messaging function didn't work until I updated my operating system.
