Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

update. In looking at Iphones The Apple 5 says they are upgrading to EOS 7 this fall.
In looking at test of the Apple 5 Siri system vs the Samsung S4 s voice the test results appear on CNET that Siri was better in recognizing verbal commands than S voice. I can not vouch for the review bu thought the info might be important to those depending on voice recognition technology and UCONNECT. I sure hate it when I Say call home and the */-& voice recognition says call Bonnei! UGH I don't have any comparisons vs google voice

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

Not only is iOS 7 slated for this fall (already in beta testing in the field), so is a new iPhone; tentatively referred to as the "5S", but we will not know the official name until it's announced, likely in September.

According to the IOS 7 site it will be compatible with the 4s and 5 as well as some Ipads and IPODS.

It looks like the wars are heating up. The S4 has a bigger screen but needs something like Lcck out or Kaspersky mobile to protect it from malware Apps that can allow hackers and cyber criminals access.

The new devices are evolving so fast it will difficult for Apps such as UCONNECT to keep up. I wish the gru's of cyber would adhere to the motto
"If it Ain't broke, Don't fix it"

I am not sure I agree with this statement... It is no more true than MACs don't get viruses.

I have multiple IOS and Android devices in my possession. I am not concerned about my security but I take appropriate measures in all cases to protect my data.

Frankly the only way to be completely secure is to not connect to anything. That isn't the way we role though

I had not tested the texting until today but was able to send and listen to a text with the Jeep. I have been using the developer ROMS though since i got the phone. I initially used another one but the developer stopped updating it so i switched to Jedi a while back. I will try the streaming some more to make sure i don't get any skipping with it.

Edit: moved from the other uconnect thread to here.
I have a Galaxy Note II and have no problems with calls or streaming music, but the voice to text is not available. I see the "messaging" soft key on the screen, but it is not fully illuminated. How do I set this up for voice to text? I am not receiving incoming text messages either.

I agree that neither is totally safe....but the fact that the Android can get free apps from just about anywhere sort of opens the door more easily for unsuspecting users to get cyber malware to get. Verizon offers protection for 1.99 per month but I personally have little confidence with McAfee......but then M* is probably better than nothing. I doubt if I would ever use a Android or Apple for banking.

best idea, don't install free apps unless you know what you are getting into. Also don't run out of market apps if you don't know what you are doing... same as people who don't know iphones should run jailbroken ones.

Phones are very personal, I do reviews for people all the time and I recommend different things based on the skill level and needs of the individual. Just saying one size and solution doesn't fit all.

Right, that's why the thread is titled "things to ponder" So the uninformed can learn from the contributions of those in "the know"

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

The pondering is worthwhile, for sure. 'Tis a moving target, however.

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

From all the input of those experienced in the subject it appears that UCONNECT and iphone compatibility is not really an issue so far as mechanics go but there are individual carrier quirks that may cause unfamiliar problems with cell phone usage.
Even after reviewing a old compatibility chart from 2011 from UCONNECT the test listings show a wide range of partial compatibility to full compatibility.

Keeping the above in mind, I started to investigate differances between carrier services and viewing coverage maps. Since I live in a rural area surrounded by trees, I wanted to be sure that I would have cell coverage in home. I have noted that cell phone signal coverage has degraded which I attribute to the manufacturers reducing the cell phone antenna radiation scare of cancer that occured 7 or 8 years ago.

Because many of Jeep owners cherish being off roaders and like the back country, and UCONNECT is offering by the day, week, or month WIFI hotspot, I am assuming that UCONNECT has leased some kind of satalite connectivity. If my assumption is correct, does any one know the details of the signal and does it have the same problem of Searching for signal like my Directtv does every time it rains. I would hate to be in trouble 2 blocks away from Timbucktu, needing help, and waiting for a signal connection. ?????

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

UCONNECT uses the Sprint network, not sat services.

You are correct that you should choose your carrier based on "where" you typically will be using your phone most of the time for best signal and performance. (for data) There are other considerations, however. For example, the iPhone on ATT will work on a phone call simultaneously with Internet access. The same is not true on VZ. For me and the way I actually use my device, that simultaneous access gets used a lot. (And I've been an ATT Wireless customer since 1996, through the Cingular days and back to ATT when that happened. My corporate carrier is also ATT)

In my home, it doesn't matter what carrier is chosen...ALL of them require a microcell to have usable service in our home due to local terrain and building materials used in a circa 1750 house plus several additions over the years.

Re: Uconnect and Cell phone considerations to ponder

This might be a dumb question, but I have 8.4AN and cannot figure out how to exit the vehicle and continue my current phone conversation on the phone. The uconnect and car wont shut off until I am off the phone. Any advise?
