well, now you're just describing something different than how your original post sounded.
1) The original posting :
quote:could you tell me if this setup made it possible for you to connect your phone and have your apps such as Pandora and GPS show up on your radio's touch screen? This is one of the main reasons I want this setup.
So the way it sounds is that you wanted to see the apps displayed on the radio screen in order to choose them from the radio screen like the newer RAMS and other vehicles like in the picture below.
2) Now, with the picture that you have displayed, the phone is plugged into the Apple docking cable connected to the Uconnect USB connector. In that mode, you will get the displayed data that you see on the radio screen. As you see on that screen, there are several features that you can go into using the radio. (The funny thing though is that the radio is displaying "track 22 of 21", something is off there).
This mode is only available with Apple phones, it won't work with other newer phones because they use a MDP profile instead of a mass storage device.
Now you can also stream the audio thru BT but the supported features are different due to the information that is sent thru the phone to Uconnect is less. However, you do still get the song, artist, band and album data displayed. You can stream app music from other phones this way also.

So if the radio doesn't support show the apps/music on screen then why do all the modules show pictures of the music information on the screen. Here's an example:
This is what I want to be able to have. So you are saying I can't do that with this module?
Also, If I only plan on using my phone to play music, will I still need the Ipod/USB cord?
