If i hit the phone button 1 more time!

Anyone else have problems with hitting the phone button during sharp turning? I think engineering needs to move the darn button!

I've definitely accidentally hit some buttons, but not the phone button yet. buttons are too close to the handles!

My wife complains about this daily. I think its all about hand positioning and how you hold the wheel, because it has not happened to me.

Re: If i hit the phone button 1 more time!

I've hit it on a number of different actions. It is in a somewhat unfortunate location, however it seems to accept the spoken word "cancel" with good grace.

Well, don't just set there wasting time on the forum, go ask his ghost
how to define the "jeep Uconnect position"

I guess it would involve using only the tips of your fingers on the wheel, or maybe just installing a J. C. Whitney suicide knob.

I'm on it, I'll email Marchionne in case it's an Italian thing.

...bump it with the heel of my hand 'all the time'.
I didn't think of saying cancel, I'll have to try that. Usually I hit the hang up button and voice button randomly hoping to get it to shut off.

I've not had that problem yet. My wife, on the other hand, has accidentally hit the paddle shifters on occasion.
