You can't. At the moment that's only supported by certain BlackBerries. The iPhone doesn't (currently) support the required Bluetooth profiles to transfer text messages. Who knows, maybe when iOS 5 comes out in a couple months it will magically be there. It's already confirmed that metadata will be transmitted over Bluetooth audio streaming, and if both the iPhone and iDrive support the very latest AVRCP profile (1.4) you'll even be able to browse your library over Bluetooth -- but it's not clear that iDrive currently does or that the iPhone will with iOS 5, and both need to support it for it to work.

Yeah Apple has not been known for being particularly quick adding support for new/updated Bluetooth profiles in iOS....

It has been confirmed that iOS 5 update will allow iDrive to show song information while streaming via Bluetooth?

If true, that would be great news!

Jobs probably won't live another year...all the reports say he's got serious health problems. A shame, as he's been one of the biggest innovators in the past 40 years. That said, forget about text messages while you're in your car - there's such a thing as being TOO connected and TOO distracted!

Yep, it's already in the iOS 5 betas that developers are testing. Google "iOS 5 AVRCP 1.3".

This above is right on the money...
