Re: 2014 UConnect phone pairing issues?
If Jeep is going to fix it....FINE...but they need to come out and SAY that....publicly and TELL THEIR DEALERS. Put it in writing. I refuse to be put in a position where some Service Manager looks me in the face and tells me I need to buy a different brand cell phone or swap carriers to solve a Bluetooth problem on my $800 upgrade head unit when ANY $29 Bluetooth ear wart from K-Mart can pretty much pair and stay paired to ANY cell phone made in the past 10 years.
My wife loves her iPhone 5. She is a little reluctant to plop down $40K and drive off the lot with a unit with known problems and no projected fix date when her 3 year old $24K paid for Chevy pairs and does hands free with her iPhone just fine. I'm sure Jeep will be glad to build me another one a few months from now and there may even be some incentives by then to counteract the bad PR they will get if their radios keep crashing, rebooting, and failing to work with the most popular phones from the most popular carrier.
I will "get over it"......when Jeep gets over it. I know a lot of people say it's just a firmware issue and they will fix it. How long has it taken them to fix the 4WD FAIL in the sand issue? Or the iPhone streaming music issue? The promise of a fix is just so much vaporware until it's written and fixes all of the problems.
