Re: Future RER Updates

Apple emailed me. They contend that they released their bluetooth specs to 3rd party providers and that it is the responsibility of those providers (Harmon, Chrysler) to fix their hardware so that it complies with the software. It's one big finger pointing party -- which IMO means that we aren't getting it fixed. We are so screwed.

I don't know who to point the finger to but you need to understand: there are no "Apple bluetooth specs". There is a standard that EVERY hardware/software manufacturer has to implement.

In this situation it is difficult to tell who is to blame. However, if there are no problems reported between other phones and WK2, and iPhone has known problems with other car brands (as someone else mentioned, don't know how true this is) then I would be inclined to suspect the problem is in iPhone.

My 3(4?) years old Windows Mobile phone works great via BT with 430N

Re: Future RER Updates

Not that this is any help, but I do want to clarify in case others are wondering about the 430N.

I am using an iPhone 4, and hands-free bluetooth phone works perfectly with the 430N.

I would assume that Chrysler is working toward getting RHR to work with the iPhone 4 as well. Hopefully whatever fix they have in place for RHR will also work with RER.

There's your problem. It is that Apple believes that they do not need to comply with the actual standard. They prefer to do their own implementation and rely on their market share and rabid fan base to point the finger at others. If their products "just work," then it must be somebody else's fault, right? My guess is that this older unit just didn't get updated when Apple decided to go screwing with a system that worked just fine.

The hands free profile has been a standard for several years. My wife's 2006 Acura requires it for full compatibility, and when we bought it you actually had to look to find a phone that would work right. Some tended to work (Motorola, Blackberry), others not (Samsung, LG). Now, most new phones support the hands free profiles, and even previous iPhone generations supported it.

That it used to work, works fine with most other phones, and now does not means that the problem is on Apple's end. Maybe they'll patch their system, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

The RHR has already been tested by Chrysler and is compatible* with the iPhone 4 (iPhone v4.0 and 4.1).

*except for conference calling.

Re: Future RER Updates

My wife and I both have iphone 4s with the current firmware. We are able to connect through the ipod cable without issues.

We are also both setup on the uconnect phone system and make/receive calls also without issue.

I have the 730 (RER).. so I'm not sure what the iphone 4/RER issues are all about..
