Yes, but the "VR" button only activates the built-in voice recognition of the Uconnect.
To use Siri you need to (a) pair the uconnect to the iphone, (b) hold the home button on the iphone to activate siri, and (c) ask siri your question...
A couple notes
1. Siri use on uconnect looks like a phonecall (the phone screen pops up on the uconnect and starts counting the time like it is a phone call)
2. Siri is slower than usual through the bluetooth connection (i think this has to do with ambient noise in the car while driving making Siri "listen" for longer than you are speaking)
3. Siri does not integrate to the uconnect NAV or any other features, it simply does what you ask of it on the iphone
> I have successfully called people over bluetooth and have started playing a playlist over bluetooth audio
I would think this arrangement would work in your current vehicle as well with the 430n, as there is nothing Siri specific about the pairing to the uconnect, as it functioning only as a speakerphone set up in this use case.
