Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

I have an Android HTC 1x Plus and noticed that it "skips" when first playing music, the problem is it isn't skipping or a connectivity issue, its the phone trying to decide what audio app to use, and will bounce back and fourth and once it figures out what one im using the skipping stops. It always starts the native google play and i never use it. i use pandora or amazon app. try using a differant music app might help.

Go to your app manager in settings, swipe to the "all" section, find the music apps you don't want to use and select disable.

Exclamation Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

Really need the advice of you Uconnect experts:

I am getting a smart phone upgrade through Verizon. (I currently have an Apple IPhone 4) ***Which phone do you recommend***.

There's a really good deal on the Ssung Galaxy 4, but I don't want a phone that is not 100% compatible with Ucconnect.

Sadly, after my issues, I don't trust anyone aside from forum members/Jeep owners.

.......so what phones do you recommend and why :-)

Thanks!

I have a Verizon gallaxy note 2 and it has the random blue tooth reconnect with the 8.4 system. I'm going to update my phones rom to see if it fixes the issue since my phones rooted. I have a jambox that never disconnects so I'm thinking it's the head unit creating the problems the rom I'll be installing is based off the latest note 2 update that has a bunch of bug fixes in it from Google. I've read that android 4.1 has an issue with bluetooth disconnect will see. Actually I need to hook up another phone to it and see if that disconnects as well

I don't disagree with anything Geox has mentioned in his note. I have tested the S4 but not long term. It is an amazing phone and Google is very good at improving the OS and drivers the last few revisions.

That is about all I can say at this point.

My iPhone 5 works 100% with my 2014 GC Overland but you can't do voice reply for text messages. Not too big of a deal since I can do that directly from the phone via voice.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

Since I have been looking at phones to use with my GC when it arrives it appears that both the I5 and S4 are good iphones to use but the I5 is not as durable as the S4 in drop test so I suggest you check out and google the drop test and watch the videos.
Verizon told me that it would cost 121,00 for a protection kit for the I5 and I see that Monoprice.com has a protection set up for $3.00 for the S4 so I am leaning toward the S4. My wife only wants a basic cell so that will save $40.00 per month not to have two data phones. Verizon is offering on upgrade both the I5 and the S4 for $199 and for a basic phone I am selecting a Samsung Intensity® III for her which is $49 on the upgrade. The Intensity uses the BREW operating system (not Android). There is a $30 per phone activation fee. The I5 uses the EOS operating system and I note on Uconnect there are 3 different versions listed. Verizon tells me that that phone automatically changes to the latest firmware. The Sammy data phones use the Android. Some users have complained about the Note 2 but I have no real info on if true.
If you are upgrading careful if you have in house cell amp's that the frequency match. Both ATT and Verizon use 800/1900 (as I remember) and Sprint uses something else. Sprint is offering the S4 upgrade for $149 but do not have coverage in my area so that is a no go

Friend of mine just picked up the s4 I'll hook his up to my 8.4 and see how it works. My galaxy note 2 works great when it stays connected. Text messaging even works. If you like ios get the iphone 5 if you like android I have to say stick with Samsung phones Imo the s4 is an awesome phone

This is where I rock the boat... I use a RAZR HD and it works perfectly and is super durable plus the battery life is killer (by far the biggest complaint of iPhone users). Now again, I have not done long term testing on the S4 but so far they have improved the battery life on it as far as I see.

Since the S4 has USB charger and I understand the Uconnect also has one will be able to ash can the old breakable cigar lighter charger which I hate.

Yeah Razr HD is a good phone as well especially their Bluetooth . I was just thinking about the latest android phones on verizon.

If I'm not mistaken if you choose to use the usb charging method it may take forever for the phone to charge not sure what size battery is in the s4 though if i charge my note 2 through usb it takes forever
