iPhone connection problem.

Anybody else having issues where your iPhone would be connected and you see it playing but no sound comes out till you disconnect and reconnect to get it to play. It does is it whether cable or Bluetooth. I use iPhone 5 connected to cable and iPhone 6+ bluetooth. Ip6 is on 8.1.11 ip5 is 8.1. I use my ip5 as a iPod with no service.

Re: iPhone connection problem.

I have an ip 6+ and have nothing but troubles. Takes a while to connect and sometimes it does not even connect at all. I have even had it start playing espn radio and that app was not even launched on my phone, then it just stopped on its own. Ghost in the Machine. I also have intermitted BT problems with skipping like a record, cutting in and out. Never connected via usb as of yet. Text Messages used to come in, but then nothing happens now. I will have them check it out on Monday.

Re: iPhone connection problem.

I haven't had problems like that. The problems just started after it had gotten cold enough to cause the one I left in the car to get to cold to turn on. I am going to do a restore once I get back from vacation to see if that helps.

Re: iPhone connection problem.

I've had nothing but issues with my iphone also. BT has worked fine, except when the USB hoses it up. I can browse my phone's music when connected to USB, but it's never played music. If I unplug the phone from the usb cable, BT won't work until I turn off the jeep and start it back up. I called Uconnect support today and was told that the ipod song format is incompatible with Uconnect and it cannot be used. When I pointed out it plays fine via BT, I was told I was lucky...

Any suggestions/solutions would be appreciated. It's the only downside of my Overland so far.

I call bullshit on it being incompatible since this is the first time this has happened with using a 5th gen iPod ip5 and ip6+. I have to look to see what uconnect version I am on but sounds about the same as what I have. I can switch to Bluetooth and it won't play till I turn off jeep as well. Yesterday I skipped tracks from #2 to #15 and did same thing. When I get back from vacation I will try my iPod again. I wonder if it has to do with new style cable and not the old 30 pin style.

I have an old iphone 4 that I think is on IOS 7. I'm going to try that as well and see if works. Like I said, it seems minor, but it is annoying me more than it probably should.

Re: iPhone connection problem.

I only started having issues playing music via USB on my iPhone 5 after the most recent IOS update. UConnect needs to get on the ball and stay up to date with the frequent smartphone updates.

Re: iPhone connection problem.

Yep, so far from what I have seen and read, BT issues are mostly resolved but I haven't seen anyone who is on the latest iOS (8.1.2) and has been able to use the USB connection for music.

Re: iPhone connection problem.

This is my first post. Hi to you all.

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.....

I haven't used voice commands so I can't help there.

Re: iPhone connection problem.

I have an iPhone 6 with 8.1.2 and have no issue with phone connection or text messages and voice dialing.
I do however run in my music in folders on a USB stick instead of using the phone as it also helps not drain the battery of the phone.
