Re: iPhone connection problem.

I have seen some IPhone issues cleared up after rebooting the phone. This isn't the same as turning it off & back on again.
Hold down the home and power buttons till the Apple is displayed then release them. The phone will now reboot. This closes all unused APPs that are working in the background and slowing down the processor.
I have to do this to my IPhone a couple times a month for issues other than just BT related.

I am using 8.1.2 and uconnect 14.47.1 with 8.4A and programmed navigation from the dealer.

If I plug in through USB I can use voice commands to play certain artists, songs etc.....

If I use BT I cannot do this but the songs steam just fine.

Now if only I could respond to texts using uconnect without using Siri if be a happy camper.....

Okay, so from everything I understand, you can't respond to texts with an iPhone, jut receive and hear them read. And you can't browse via bluetooth, only stream.

But, you are able to listen to music with the USB corrections? I can browse, but nothing ever plays.

Yes I am able to play my music from my USB. Just checked it. I should also note that I am using an iPhone 6+.

What do you specifically mean by corrections? Do you mean the latest uconnect software version?

Re: iPhone connection problem.

Mine will play through both but say I change playlists it will play but no sound till I disconnect and reconnect. Just started doing it in December and had no problems before that. Will try things and report back.

By corrections I meant that I can't type. I meant to say connection. Are you using an apple lighting cable or a 3rd party cable? that's about the only thing I can think of that might be different. I'm using a 3rd party cable.

Re: iPhone connection problem.

I'm using an apple cable.

Have you done a hard reset of your phone lately? Press down the round button and power button at the same time until it resets?

That's the only thing I can think of. I've heard this has worked for people and when you repair your Bluetooth do not forget to enable the notifications in the BT setting.

I swear on my Jeep that I already hard reset my phone, but... . I did it again today and now usb is working fine. I tried with both Apple and non-apple cables, and it works fine. So thanks for the advice, everything is now working like it should.

Re: iPhone connection problem.

Glad all is well. No need to bet on one of your children let alone your beautiful SUV!!

Now if you know a way I could respond to texts with the preset texts programmed in uconnect I'd be a happy camper.....

I understand Apple products aren't fully compatible to use uconnect to respond to texts. Any workarounds or do I need to hassle Apple every day to fix this?

Re: iPhone connection problem.

Nope, I don't know of any work arounds. Maybe if you hack uconnect with one of the hack kits out there, but nothing using stock iOS and stock uConnect.

Re: iPhone connection problem.

Having the same issue.
Works fine first time I plug in the Lightning USB cable, but stops playing music once I disconnect the lead.
Have to turn my iPhone 5 off and back on again to get it work.
Also have the issue with songs skipping.
Only seems to be a recent issue since I did the last IOS update.
