Just to be clear that there is no CarPlay with the firmware. What the update enables is Siri Hands Free which allows accessing Siri on your phone via Bluetooth.

CarPlay means you are able to see your iPhone screen on your Nav screen which is not possible nor will it be possible until the 2017 models.

Correction on my original post - You do require the cable attached for flawless Siri functions. My iPhone was in the cup-holder when it worked with Bluetooth. It didn't when the iPhone was in my pocket. Proximity to the Uconnect might be a factor.

Re: Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

Is there a way to get Siri to work with out the phone being unlocked?

Seems counter intuitive to have this new set up if at first you have to find your phone and unlock it before the handsfree button will activate siri.

Siri hands free functions only via Bluetooth. You can confirm this by turning off Bluetooth on your phone and then attaching the USB to lightning cable. Press the hands free button on your steering wheel. It will only call up the factory voice prompt and not Siri.

When you turn Bluetooth back on and wait for your head unit to connect then Siri will be back connected.

Under your phone settings in Passcode Lock, you have to enable to allow Siri even while locked.

You are a Genius! I just bought a 14 JGCL and installed the Uconnect update with Siri and was excite to use it. Did so for a bit but then it stopped working like others said. Figured it was a software issue. Now I realize that my phone is set to a 30 sec lock so Siri only worked once in a great while. Changed the settings under passlock and now Siri is back in business all the time.
