Re: RER and iPhone 4 Issues

I use iphone 4 with iOS4.1 and have no problem with bluetooth phonebooks or anything on my 739n. Tell Chrysler they can mail me a check for suggesting that customers having this problem upgrade to that OS!

I just fixed their tech problem no RER software update required!

Re: RER and iPhone 4 Issues

The phone doesn't work well with the 730N. It's intermittent and you can't make a call out while the telephone phone book is loading. Likewise, if you stop the car at all while the phone book is loading, the phone DOES NOT send the voices through on the next call in.. I'm on iPhone 4.2 (developer's edition) and 2.302 in the RER. Someone mentioned that one could downgrade to 1.295, but I lose VR and Uconnect steering wheel buttons.

Re: RER and iPhone 4 Issues

For those that think it's Apple, most on the Apple board doesn't believe that it is their issue. Really, unless this is Harmon and they will be upgrading all RERs in the future, I don't see a resolution. http://discussions.apple.com/thread....41026&tstart=0

That would hold water if they're weren't simalar threads for 10 other car models and the iPhone4.

Apple NEVER thinks it's their problem.

It worked fine with previous versions. It works fine with Android phones. It works fine with all kinds of other phones. It does not work with the iPhone 4 because Apple did not conform to the Bluetooth spec! They revised it for their own purposes and the thing is incompatible with other Bluetooth gear as well.

Apple is under the impression that just telling others how to be compatible with them is the same as just making the device correctly in the first place. My guess is that the RER is incompatible because Harmon didn't feel like revising the programming in the unit just to provide compatibility with a single phone model when the head unit was on its way out the door anyway.

Remember- this is the same Apple who insisted they had no problems with the antenna and then ended up giving out free cases because of the intrinsic design flaw. This is the same Apple who announced a white iPhone but couldn't make it so it wouldn't crack. This is the same Apple who makes iPhones with a horrible service record (everybody I know with one has had to have it replaced at least once because of case cracking or some other issue).

Apple can make some good equipment. The iPhone is not good hardware- the software is impressive, the capabilities are impressive, but it is a poorly designed unreliable incompatible turd of a phone.

Re: RER and iPhone 4 Issues

My 730N has a problem recognizing the addresses from my 3GS. It downloads all the names and phone numbers but when using the Nav, it's not picking up the addresses of the contacts.

Re: RER and iPhone 4 Issues

I have an iPhone 4 and it works great with my wife's Limited (730N) and my Laredo 430. It takes longer for it to connect once I push the phone button to take a call on the 430 then on my 730N though.

Milous, I assume this is a software update for the above mentioned units. Is there still no update for the 430n iphone 4 issues?
