    Do not disturb while driving...
    This feature seems as straight forward as one can and yes, it has been enabled on iPhone 8 Plus with iOS 12.4.1.

    1. Settings
    2. Do not disturb
    3. Do not disturb while driving

    On the other hand, it does not work. I am driving, get a text and sender does not get my do not disturb while driving message.

    Is there any additional settings that needs to be enabled for this to work, like location? I do limit location services to just a few applications, like Maps, Compass, etc., that actually need it.

    PS: Yes, I would add an image for this setting, but the forum does not let me. Getting the Forum message of "You do not have permission to perform this function..."

    In the settings, what do you have enabled for "Auto Reply To"? I have mine set to Favorites, so only contacts that I have marked as favorites will get the notification.

    I had mine set to "All Contacts", but will try "Favorites" next.

    The do not disturb message should work for all contacts as well, no?

    Works for me. You shouldn't have to specify "favorites".

    As far as how I understand it, when "Favorites" is selected, only Favorites in my Contacts will be notified that I am driving, others will not get the notification, or that's what it sounds like to me?

    Thanks everyone...

    The actual issue is that neither of them work on my iPhone 8+. I've tested it yesterday, going ~40 MPH, both on land and water, and it still does not work. Shutting down the iPhone and starting it up after a substantial delay did not resolve the issue.

    I've checked my significant other's iPhone 6s settings that works just fine. There are minor differences in System Services settings, but overall, they are very similar.

    The setting that might make a difference is that on my my phone Wi-Fi is only enabled, if an when an update requires it. Hers has Wi-Fi enabled all the times. I don't see how that could make a difference, but at this point, I'll try anything...
