Re: Uconnect System with Iphone 5 Answers please

Being unable to reply via Uconnect with an iphone seems like a minor inconvenience. Just use Siri. Especially now that ios 8 activates "Hey Siri" if you plug in the phone. "hey Siri, tell my wife I'm gonna be a little late" works great.

Re: Uconnect System with Iphone 5 Answers please

So does that work fine when hooked up to uconnect via Bluetooth? I wasn't sure if Siri would conflict in some way with the uconnect voice recognition setup.

Yes, works fine. Uconnect doesn't listen unless you push a button on the steering wheel, Siri doesn't listen unless you push a button in the iPhone or use "Hey Siri" so both systems are never listening at the same time - unless you really want them to!

Re: Uconnect System with Iphone 5 Answers please

So let me get this straight ,, If your Ipone 5 or higher (with the new IOS 8 update) is plugged into your Jeep , alls you need to do is say "Hey Seri " ?? or push the U connect button ?? Mide you I have a 2012 W2k

Re: Uconnect System with Iphone 5 Answers please

"Hey Siri" if you want to speak with her and your iPhone.

Push the steering wheel button if instead you want to have an intimate conversation with your Jeep. :-)

Re: Uconnect System with Iphone 5 Answers please

I played around with the 'hey Siri' feature today and it worked really well. Only problem is, with the sound system running, it couldn't hear me. I had to turn the volume right down before it picked me up. As indicated though, when it heard me, it was really accurate.

Re: Uconnect System with Iphone 5 Answers please

Hi All! I have a 2014 Overland and I have an iPhone 5 and ever since I updated to IOS 8 when I plug my phone into the USB/flash cable it doesn't see my music. I have done reset after reset to my phone per Apple, been to the dealership & spoken to Uconnect. Uconnect finally told me that there is a compatibility issue with IOS 8 and that they have no time line on doing any update to make it compatible. I've been doing A LOT of research online and there are a number of people having this and other issues since the update. With that being said, though I love my iPhone I would really like the texting feature and all that the system has to offer, so I'm thinking that I'm going to get a new phone and wanted to see what you all would recommend. I've been on the Uconnectphone.com site that tells you which phones have what capabilities; however it's so out dated and only lists older phones. Does anyone have any suggestions? And is anyone experiencing the USB music problem with their phone? I would greatly appreciate ANY assistance. Thanks so much!!

Are you having issues with the Bluetooth connection as well?

Nope. The Bluetooth is working fine it's just the USB that's not working at all. Thanks for the reply.
