Default 2019 Sierra infotainment

First, can a personal picture be added to the system so you can use it for your profile picture.

More about new 2019-- Why on earth did GMC take away the text messaging feature on the new truck, the 2017 I had was great but now it is gone? Has anyone found a work around besides apple car play?

Default Work around for text messages

I just wanted to let you know I found a "semi-work around" for text messages for iphone not using Apple Car Play. KEY POINT, it still won't notify you of a text, but if you have your phone on you and feel or hear that you got one it will play it to you by holding the talk button long enough to get to siri and say "play my last message" ... It will only work with all these settings:
1. Go to settings and scroll down to Siri & Search
2. Click on it and go down to "Allow Siri When Locked" turn button to on.
3. While still in Siri scroll down further to Messages, click on it and turn on "Allow on Lock Screen"
Exit out of Siri and Search
4. Go to Notifications and make sure "Show Previews" is set to Always
5. while still in Notifications scroll down to Messages, under Options set Show Previews to Always.
Now when you get the message you can push and hold the voice button and say "play my last message". You can also push and hold voice button and say "text Aaron" and it will let you dictate your message.

Hope this helps!
