In my detailed response to the Jeep Customer Satisfaction survey, I commented that the concept of hands free audio texting as a safety feature was currently severely compromised for iPhone users in that the most dangerous part of non hands free texting (attempted replies) simply did not work in Uconnect.
Yesterday, I received the third call from Chrysler on the topic. They wanted to research what was being done with Apple. Looks like there is a team working with Apple and they have been sharing code back and forth with a goal of fully implementing 2 way texting. They anticipate that the final approval process from Apple is 4-6 months out.
If you don't got an iPhone, you are probably already ahead of the game.
