Hi I have recently switched from a Windows phone back to an Android Samsung phone but can no longer get text messages through the car speakers of my Qashqai. Does anyone else had a similar problem and if so how did they resolve it?

As far as I know Android doesn't have this facility currently built in, from what I read some third party apps may enable this for you. I use Windows Phone and as you say it works seamlessly over Bluetooth in the Qashqai to read and reply to texts all built into the phone system - it is a great system and will use my Lumia 650 for as long as it lasts, hopefully many years!

Hope this helps.

Thanks Paul. I tried contacting Nissan and they bascially said "you shouldn't be listening to text messages whilst driving"! so they were as helpful as ever. But having a mother with Dementia, and living an hour away from work, I need to be contactable at all times.

And if radio stops do they say you should not listen to that either.
All "customer service" seem to exist to just put customers off once they have the money.

Tricia, If you press down the phone button on the steering wheel for a couple of seconds with bluetooth enabled,you can ask google to do whatever....send a text ,read a text or call someone, but you must have the google voice app. Hope that helps

Interested to see your average mpg in the 1.6 DIG-T is EXACTLY the same as my 1.2 DIG-T Geek with both being nowhere near what Nissan claim.

I've been getting about 33 average in my 1.2 DIG-T in the 2 months I've had it, but I've only really used it for commuting etc.

Just went to Devon for half term holidays and it averaged 39 over the week, with my motorway journey back yesterday clocking in at 44.

So it seems to make a big difference if you are doing proper driving rather than my usual 5 mins stop start trip to work.  Was interested to see when I set off last week with a full tank it said only 350ish miles to empty.  About 100 miles into the drive it had gone up to 390 miles to empty!

G5  More or less the same as my old 2litre and I am not pedal heavy either. So like you say don't beleive the figures which Nissan publish.

I think the only use of the manufactures figures are to give a comparison between different cars.
Seem all manufacturers actual figures are about 25% below those stated. No idea how much VW improved figures with clever bit of computer work.
Also I never get a consistent mpg figure , same car can vary 20% dependant upon manner location of driving motorway or town
