Uconnect 8.4 handle multiple phones?

Hi All, I'm going to be picking up a 2014 Overland later this year and was wondering if the Uconnect is able to pair with multiple phones. I have a work phone and a personal phone and being able to stream/take calls from both would be great. Is this at all possible?

One thing it can do that most systems cannot, you can have 2 phones connected, one preference for calls and the other one streaming the audio to the radio at the same time.

Thanks, that was going to be my next question. From reading on the forum, it seems like the Uconnect isn't everyone's favorite, so I'm happy to hear that it does have some nice features regarding handling multiple phones.

It is my favorite, but I am bias.

For me the Voice controls are far superior to numerous other brands I have worked with. There are definitely some quarks with the system but it improves with time and updates. I find I actually struggle with out it now because I am used to how it works and for me it is part of the mobile office.

Where have you been, Willx?? Before today, your last post was in July '14! We've missed you! Welcome back!

Nothing better than being appreciated and "missed", so thank you...

I am back here on a more regular basis again as we start to swing into a new order season shortly.

Some VERY complicated business of some major changes in my life but things have calmed down and I am back in a happy place

Re: Uconnect 8.4 handle multiple phones?

Glad to hear! Hope 2015 is a very good year for you! Now a question for you - will the '14s be receiving the new & improved Uconnect features (e.g.; sending destination from mobile phone to unit in vehicle)?

Not sure, waiting to hear if they are bringing the updates back into one thread or not.

2 phones can be connected. In the phone setup screen you can flip between the tabs of audio and phone and choose which the current preferred device is for both phone and music source. You cannot use 2 phones simultaneously but I do switch between the active phone for calls between my wife and I while driving.

I was wondering more for streaming music, but this raises a good question as well, since it would be nice to take calls from different phones.

Thanks for this! Again, sounds like the Uconnect is pretty flexible with multiple phones.
