2014 JGC Texting Success

Hi all,

After delivery of my 2014 Grand Cherokee I was really disappointed when my AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3 i747 failed to work with the Messaging function on my radio. The Messaging button was greyed out and I searched fruitlessly for a workaround. Well, I'm happy to report I now have my Grand Cherokee reading my texts incoming out loud and I am using my voice to author new texts and send them out.

Here is a guide to rooting your phone: READ CAREFULLY

AT&T Galaxy S3 Rooting, ROMs, and Hacks - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

This fix will require that your Galaxy S3 is rooted. You will need to flash the operating system to the following ROM:

The ROM is located here:

Home

You will need to download Build 7:

Downloads - d2att-d2tmo - Slim-d2att-4.2.2.build.7-OFFICIAL

Flash the ROM per the instructions on your ROOTED S3.

This ROM has updated Bluetooth MAP profiles that enable the texting functions to work on the radio.

DISCLAIMER: I assume no liability if you brick your phone. If you have never rooted and flashed a new ROM on your phone I highly suggest you do your homework prior to doing so as the result could be an inoperable device. Although flashing your ROM is easy and relatively safe it will void the warranty in most cases. Although I have never had any problems I consider myself pretty tech savvy. It is a very easy process as long as you know what your doing.

Oh by the way, I am loving the new functionality and now I dont have to get a blackberry! ENJOY and good luck!!!

Re: 2014 JGC Texting Success

This bugs me as well... I have an iPhone 4s on iOS 6.1.3 which supports MAP. the message button is greyed out! GRRRRRR

OK!!! Wait. I just tried a different wording for google.

In case others need this:
iPhone 4+ iOS6+

Settings > BlueTooth > Uconnect > (the little arrow) > Show notifications > ON

says that should enable MAP!

fingers crossed!

This will get the message icon to not be grayed out, but so far I've had no success getting any messages to show in the inbox on uconnect, let alone voice to text which I believe will never be supported on IOS6 other than via Siri.

Please let me know if you get it to work.

Re: 2014 JGC Texting Success

Got a text on the way home, uconnect read it to me. Can't reply via uconnect but can use Siri, so no big deal. iPhone 4S running 6.1.3.

Re: 2014 JGC Texting Success

Says text recieved from so and so as well as displays a notification on the main screen. There is a listen button, press that and it reads it to you. The reply button is greyed out however, that's an iPhone thing as far as I have read.

It's disappointing all the trouble people have with this feature..

Blutooth and the MAP profile are a standard the Apple should be complying with.

Hope iOS 7 fixes this for you guys. This is why after 4 years I walked away from iPhone.

Re: 2014 JGC Texting Success

The notification setting is in your phone. Once paired, should be in the Bluetooth profile where uconnect shows on your paired devices list.
