Re: 730N (RER) vs 430N (RHB) vs 730N (RHR)

Any chance the new iPhone software update that came out this week (iOS 4.3) fixed the Bluetooth issues?

No, it doesn't (I've had 4.3 since January as a developer). Apple doesn't support the SMS Bluetooth Profile in the operating system. Android has had the profile in the OS it since 1.6, but I don't know of any phones that actually allow you to access it.

Without that, there's no way for the RHR/etc to read or send SMS messages on the phone.

You're wanting the "MAP" profile, the "Message Access Protocol".

Maybe we'll be surprised by Apple when 5.0 is announced in a few weeks... The problem with MAP is it opens your phone up to major abuse if a third party piece of hardware can send out tons of text messages without your consent (and cost you money), so Apple isn't likely to activate it...

Re: 730N (RER) vs 430N (RHB) vs 730N (RHR)

dobie... I haven't figured out the usb armrest issue yet. I haven't had a chance to take it to the local dealer in Nashville but my guess is they'll be dumbfounded by it since the rhr is so new. I might pull the radio out and just see if a connector is simply unplugged or if a fuse is blown specifically for the port in the armrest.

I will be testing my IPOD at the dealer before I drive off the lot. I'm not spending more than $50K to have issues.

Re: 730N (RER) vs 430N (RHB) vs 730N (RHR)

french... not sure what you mean by "inside the center console". There are 2 usb ports in my Jeep (1) built into the radio and (2) in the armrest storage area (top section). There is not a usb port in the cubby hole below the radio/ac stack.

Yes - album art displays when the ipod is plugged into the radio's usb port (directly on the radio - see pic early).

Not sure - if album art displays when the ipod is plugged into the usb port in the armrest because I can't get the radio to even recognize anything's plugged into that port (see other posts).

Hope that helps.

I haven't played with it long enough to post any sort of respectable review but overall I like how it functions. So far...

- Sirius works great. However, when I called them to cancel the XM subscription in my traded Infiniti, I had the lady check on this account just to make sure I was getting a year's subscription. Bad move on my part as she did something to kill my traffic and travel link info functionality (working fine from Saturday until today). Sirius is fixing the glitch in their system but heads up just in case.

- Connected a Verizon iPhone (ios 4.2.6) to uconnect just fine. Clarity seems fine, downloaded phonebook from what I can tell although I'm not sure how to view what it downloaded other than to call out every number one at a time.

- Able to bluetooth stream from iPhone to 730n, worked just fine.

- Tried to connect my iPhone to the usb port in the armrest but nothing happened on the 730, no charging indicator on the iPhone either. Also tried to connect an iPod Nano 4th gen and no go. Surprisingly, I could connect both devices to the usb port on the radio itself and it worked perfectly to view by playlist, artist, album, etc. Not sure what's going on with the armrest usb?

- Nav works well (not as good as the Infiniti) but will do the job.

So far that's all I've played with. Again, not a review by any means but just something to share. I don't know enough about the 430 or 730rer to say "it's faster here" or "it's better there" but I'd be happy to test anything out if needed.
The RHB will NOT allow Uconnect through the front USB port. This is whack, my only option for my iPod is the center console USB plug which is buggy as hell, sounds like garbage most of the time, and takes forever to connect. If I try to connect my iPod or iPhone to the front USB port it just says there arent any compatible files. Wish I had the RHR or RER dammit.

Re: 730N (RER) vs 430N (RHB) vs 730N (RHR)

I also love how the RHB forgets all the settings you set. After a restart the iPod I play from the center console USB loses all settings. I have to go into the radio and set it for random play again, then have to press the info button so I can see the song text instead of the gay ass Jeep pic. WTF guys, can I get a fkn bug fix please??

PS love how the RHB auto plays music from my iPhone 4 via bluetooth when I restart, love how the music skips like a broken record. WTF.

I don't think that's the head unit doing that (playing via bluetooth). That's the iPhone 'helpfully' switching Audio to the last connected output source. I have this problem with my Kenwood aftermarket head unit. If I plug my iPhone 4 into the USB interface before the iPhone and the head unit notice each other and link up via BlueTooth, the audio gets flipped over to BlueTooth, since it was the last thing 'connected'. I have to unplug the USB cable from the iPhone, then plug it back in to switch audio back (or pull up the iPhone home screen, double tap to get the task bar, scroll to the left, hit the 'AirPlay' icon, and tell it I want the "Dock Connector" to be the output.

There are two ways Apple or Chrysler could fix this... #1 would be for the iPhone to allow you to disable the A2DP setting in the bluetooth setting page for the particular device (so it won't try to output music/audio via BlueTooth)... #2 would be for Chrysler to provide the ability to turn off the same profile... because... seriously... if you've got the USB connection, you almost definitely wouldn't want BlueTooth audio, since BT Audio's quality is significantly worse than USB.

Even in my TJ Wrangler, which has very minimal electronics and interference, I can have my iPhone 4 within a foot or two of the head unit, and the audio will skip and get all wonky over BlueTooth... BT Audio is a gimmick, IMHO.

edit: for what it's worth, my friend's Nexus 2 does the exact same thing, except you can disable the A2DP profile in it...

Thanks for the clarification: I just realized that I did not know the RHR did not come with the ipod connector in the cubby hole below the radio...sorry.
So it has USB in the center armrest storage area and on the front of the radio. Like the 430 I guess.
Anyway, if you cant get the ipod to work when connected in the center armrest area, it's not too good. That means u always need the ipod connected with the cable to the front of the radio. Not very convenient...

-Matt

Re: 730N (RER) vs 430N (RHB) vs 730N (RHR)

A local jeep store finally had a unit in with the RHR so I went to look at it yesterday. First i connected my old iPhone 3GS (used as an iPod now) to the USB connector in the armrest. It took a second to figure out how to access the music but it worked and played fine, with album artwork showing. Note my iPhone is running iOS 4.0.1 which is not the newest so not sure if that matters. It also worked fine with my ancient iPod nano original. I did not test the USB connector on the radio's faceplate.

Next I paired my HTC phone via Bluetooth. It took a minute to sync the contact list (I'm a little concerned about that) but not too long. The phone book on the radio seemed complete so that was good. Then I tried to initiate a phone call via voice command. This is where we started to have problems. Ucommand would recognize the standard commands like "dial" but could not figure out the names in my phonebook. I only tried 3 or 4 but it missed every time. Disconcerting.

So then I tried setting a destination for the nav system via uconnect. Again it recognized the built in commands and understood the city names but couldn't figure out the street name (I only tried once). Because of this the salesman and I tried to run the voice recognition training program which apparently makes you repeat 20 sets of 4 numbers followed by 25 words. I got impatient after the numbers so we didn't finish the training program. I tried nav again with no luck.

Other than the voice recognition problems I liked the RHR well. I don't think that will prevent me from buying the jeep.

Re: 730N (RER) vs 430N (RHB) vs 730N (RHR)

I know there are members now with the new 730 RHR. Can anyone elaborate on cell phone integration with the 730? Were you able download your contacts onto 730 HD? I read somewhere you could send texts via voice commands. Does that work? Can you see texts when they arrive on the 730 display? What happens when a call comes in? Can you see the contact on the display? Is the bluetooth connection clear (on both ends)? Any review on these functions or any functions would be great!
