Can you tether with an iPhone? Or would that just try to treat the bluetooth as a shared network connection?

Re: Youtube over 8.4AN

I actually only tether (iPhone 4s) every sound comes over.. even typing. So youtube would work fine... but I think this only works with iPhones

I'm having the same problem . It's a pain in the ass and I was hoping it would have been resolved with the latest firmware update . I used to own a 2011 dodge charger with the first version of the 8.4 uconnect and never had this problem . It would switch over to youtube seamlessly . Even if I had it plugged in with the iPad USB hookup . You can get it to work on the grand cherokee .you have to kind of play a frustrating game of forcing it to recognize your intensions by continually hit the play but on the phone in sequence with play button the the uconnect . Then all of a sudden it's like it realizes you want you tube and eventually works . It's sucks I know .

Re: Youtube over 8.4AN

I am not an iPhone person, so I will approach this from a theoretical position. I faced the same challenge on my Android devices. It is very frustrating, so I know what you are going through. My solution was to load a 3rd party app that sort of sits between the device operating system and the uconnect radio. So when I press "play" on the radio, the app on the phone pops up and askes me which app on the phone it should route to the Bluetooth. It took some trial and error, but it works well enough to solve the problem. Perhaps there is a similar apple app?

For comparison, here is the app I use in the android world: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ni.android.mbr
