Jeep survey, Text responses, Uconnect and Apple

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.

Interesting...I thought the issue was actually on the Uconnect side since Apple requires encryption for the Bluetooth. This would be great if they get it fixed.

Its never not apples fault lol... they like to do things their way ONLY. As far as encryption, Bluetooth is a standard, if apple is changing something.. then no wonder its not working correctly.

. Apple supports the MAP portion of the Bluetooth standard but it must be over an encrypted connection which I think uConnect isn't doing.

I haven't heard anything. Sorta figured Uconnect was waiting for me to text them so they could surprise me with a text reply.

Gotta love Apple! No flash player, no reply texting through Uconnect, yet we still line up to buy the newest models.
