Just hit "Reply via VR" This option will not appear if your phone doesn't support it.

In any event we should be aware of risks associated with hands-free voice systems, though UConnect is better than many others.

Re: U connect subscription expired

the talk to text feature works really well....you have to sign up and activate your Uconnect acct....even for your free one year trial. It is a neat feature, incoming text messages go to a voice notification which tells you "you have a new text message from (whoever)" you then have the option to view or listen to it. If you select listen, it is read to you in the usual computerized woman's voice. this all works, as far as I know, whether you have the Uconnect account active or not. You then have the option of replying...just hit, or say reply and you can talk you text message up to a certain number of charecters (I forget how many)...but this feature requires you have an active account. It's neat if you text a lot, but I don't know if I will pay for it once the free year is up.

Re: U connect subscription expired

My phone, Nokia Lumia 1520 running Windows Phone 8.1, is not compatible with the U-Connect Text-to-Voice system. But my phones internal system via "Cortana" reads all my messages and allows me to speak a response without needing U-Connect. So, outside of the "Assist" button and perhaps Stolen Vehicle Tracking I don't see much value in keeping the subscription beyond my trial period.

We got 15/mo subscription and so far it is worth in the winter, specially if you live in a cold area and you want to start your car before leaving your work.

The wireless hotspot is good when you are traveling and no one has data plan and you want the non driver occupants to use that with their laptop.
We bought it for one month during our trip to Florida.

Is there anyone out there that takes a laptop on a trip and has a phone without a data plan? Also the car hotspot is a slow 3G one and is outrageously expensive.

I agree, I do carry my laptop on every trip. . I don't think we will buy another month subscription, you can buy "as you go" data plan on your cell phone for better price snd it is more pratical

Re: U connect subscription expired

As I have mentioned, my 2014 was purchased with 6k miles on it. Looking into uconnect it seems that the first owner must have asked for a credit and never had it installed. My rear view mirror has no buttons on it, but does have auto dimming. The uconnect people can't really figure it out. The only reason I tried to see about it was I wanted to play Pandora without starting it on my phone and then hitting the blue tooth button on the radio screen.

Reading this thread makes me think I'm not missing anything, and maybe the first owner wasn't quite the idiot I've been thinking he/she was.

Oh, and the radio 8.4a doesn't have an Apps button. Is this part of uconnect or are there things I'm gonna need?
