    Is there any way to have location-based reminders over Bluetooth? Like if you have a reminder set for when you arrive at work, have Cortana speak it as you are pulling in? I have missed reminders by not looking at my phone after getting out of my car.

    What I have seen is that you will only hear reminders if 1) you are connected to Bluetooth Audio when your phone is connected to Sync or 2) you have Bluetooth turned off and not connected to Sync. In the first case, you hear it over the car speakers, and the second is through the phone's speaker. I have not seen the phone interrupt, like it would for an incoming phone call, and play the reminder.

    Is there any way to activate Cortana without hitting it on your phone? Probably not, but figured I'd ask in case I'm missing something :)
    I can hold down the phone button on the steering wheel on my 2013 Explorer Sport and active Cortana. Same with my bluetooth headset.

    ***UPDATE***
    I tried it again and it didn't work. I'm not sure what changed or if I was hallucinating (double bad since I was behind the wheel) but it doesn't seem to activate.

    That was my problem yesterday. I was in my wife's 2013 Escape, and wanted to use Cortana. She played nice thru bluetooth as long as I pressed the button on the phone. I could not get her to engage through any of the steering wheel controls or voice commands.

    I have a 2013 Focus Titanium with MFT, I just pull the sync paddle and say "call Cortana" and then the phone responds with the Cortana listening prompt. I don't have Cortana in my address book nor did I enable any other settings. I just figured the car normally treats talking to Cortana as a phone call, maybe it would work and it does. The phone never leaves my pocket.

    When I call Cortana to ask questions or directions she hangs up after a few seconds. I need to be real quick. Then after she does her thing, hangs up right away. Using Here+ is some what of a pain. Every time a new navigation instruction (turn here) it's like getting a call.

    Sometimes it takes an extra second for the Bluetooth to connect but Cortana will actually be listening. I've tried just talking after I activate her and it does work. It seems to go off quickly because she was actually listening the whole time.

    I use the "Call Cortana" method and it works every time.

    Is there a way to get your text messages through SYNC without using Cortana? I have a 2015 Focus and not completely sure which SYNC version I am using (was recently updated at the dealership).
