I have had 2 8.4 nav unit's in my ram. Both of them you could speak to text you're own message. This system can only send predetermined text msg from a list. I spent over a hour on the assist help, being passed back and forth between uconnect and guardian. The issue is with guardian, the best I can figure.

I think car manufacturers abandoned that feature since all phones now have “assistants” who can do it better. My 2013 Ford has the feature you’re looking for, but my 2016 GMC just has a pick list. I never used either more than once. No good.

Anyway, you should be able to do it with CarPlay and Android Auto. I’m only familiar with the former - press and hold the steering wheel button for 2 or more seconds. When you hear the beep, tell Siri to send a text. “Send a text message to OldGuy.”
