Also Willx the update on the CD was 13.15, so no change there. we'll see what the new one has on it, it shold be here next week

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

Willx,

My iPhone 5 has worked perfectly with my Overland since day 1. I have not a single complaint about connectivity or usefulness with Bluetooth.

@fumblefingers: I don't know where you read that the the S4 is more durable than the iPhone 5 but that's not true.

I love my iPhone.

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

There are no updates available for your 2014 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE SUMMIT 4X2 equipped with the Uconnect 8.4AN AM/FM/BT/Access/NAV radio

http://mashable.com/2013/04/29/galaxy-s4-drop-test/

I love my iPhone.
I don't really want to have the Android vs iPhone discussion. Frankly the iPhone 5 is a great product (definitely the durability is up a little from prior generations). You know what, I have two broken S4s on hand already from clients so ya if you drop either unprotected they will likely break... I got the Driod RAZR HD mainly because it is a little more durable without a case.

The only thing I have to say about Apple that I have not experienced witd Android is that you have to conform to the way they want you to use it. You can't even install wireless scanning software on an iphone and that is just wrong for Apple to lock users out of using the network card that way.

On the other hand I have found Android to be more flexible. You want to run out of market apps, you check a box, you want to root the phone, you check a box.... but the really cool thing is right out of the box I can do the things that I need to do and Android hasen't broken Exchange or IMAP with an update, they usually just fix little issues.

It is totally my personal take, I think that Android devices are better simply because of thier flexibility (not a samsung vs apple thing). I still recommend iphones for certain clients though because it is really about what you are going to use the phone for. If you are happy with Apple products, you should likely stick with them, and I say that all the time unless someone wants a complete review, then I discuss the positives and negatives.

The only hardware thing I have to say about the RAZR HD is the cell reception is better than ANY device I have used. I can have 8 different cell phones on my desk and the RAZR with have 1 bar and the rest none. Plus you can actually complete a call with that. That and the battery is AMAZING!!!

Great, after typing all that I just realized I said it all anyway

Re: UConnect updates available NOW!

One last little point and then I'll stop. I swear

Jailbreaking is as easy as rooting. Problem solved.

So what's your point are you trying to say jailbreaking an I phone is the same as rooting an Android device?

Ah no worries.... the iPhone is still the easiest media player to use out of the box. I might own one if the battery life were better and the screen was a little wider.

The only suggestion I have for Apple is make another size. Make a bigger phone some clumsy fat thumb losers like me can use it. Current format is fine for like 60 percent of people but I can't use it.... of course if it were bigger they would have more room for battery and that solves my other issue. The rest you are correct I could jailbreak.

(Sorry for the other OT post!)

My point is that all the awesome capabilities of android are t realized until you root. People consistently sing the praises of android without mentioning that little fact. The power is there, if you want it.

But then people bemoan the iPhone's closed nature. Without ever mentioning that a jailbreak would enable all that stuff just as easily.

I'm just asking for an apples to apples comparison. If you're going to pit a rooted android phone against an iPhone, pit it against a jailbroken one.

Make sense?

Not really because your still not comparing apples to apples even with a jail broken iphone but that discussion is for different forum I like both iphone and Android phones.
