Example: Poll text messages

Polls for delivered, sent and read text messages.

This tool is provided as an example and is available on an As-Is basis. You must assume all the risks and costs associated with the use of the sample tool, including, without limitation, any damage to any equipment, software, information or data. In addition, we are not obligated to provide any maintenance, technical or other support for the sample tool. In order to improve our products, we may at any time, and without warning, change the design, presentation, or functionality of the software.

This sample is polling for text messages that have been added or modified since you authenticated. After you send a message (step 1) or reply (step 2), it will be displayed after the next poll for text messages has completed (the sample poll interval is 5 seconds).

1: Send message

2: Reply message

This will mock the device's reply to the text message we sent.


This example shows how to regularly poll for new text messages.

Work flow
The first step is send to a text message to a Garmin equipped vehicle. An polling interval is created which checks for new delivered, sent and read text messages where you should be able to see the message you have sent. You can then use the options provided to send a mock reply. This will be displayed in the messages table.
