Once the HEADINGS and or OPTIONS have been selected click on FIND and the drivers names will be displayed as a list, you then type your message in the upper box.
If you are happy select SEND or you can select CLEAR and start again. Your message has a SMS character limit set to 160 which conforms to the networks format and this number is displayed to assist with your choice.
