No bluetooth from 730n RER

Please help. Just inherited a 2011 jeep grand cherokee with the 730n rer . It was my fathers, who passed away recently. It only has 22k miles on it I can't pair anything via blue tooth. Phones won't detect the jeep or vise versa. Dealer said bring it in. $125 to diagnose plus any repairs won't be covered because out of warranty on years. (Go figure). The only thing my father used on this radio was the radio! He wasn't very tech savvy at 75 years old. Any updates I could try or suggestions would be appreciated .

Re: No bluetooth from 730n RER

i have the same radio and have not attempted blue tooth set up yet. But one thing that is recommended is to make sure the radio firmware is up to date you should be at 2.404. There are a lot of previous threads on this and it is easy. I just updated mine. I know or strongly believe you won't be able to play music over bluetooth to RER but you should be able to receive and make calls

Re: No bluetooth from 730n RER

I have the RER as well. The only blue tooth you get is pairing the telephone. No streaming music like most modern cars and even the USB is worthless except for downloading MP3 format but disc is about it. It's time consuming for certain. My nab system is pretty out of date for areas like the I-99 corridor that's been extending South for 5 years. I'm looking for a new unit without going broke. Trying to find somebody selling a newer Jeep unit or something comparable that will work with IPhone music. Apple and Jeep are not compatible unless the 2015 models are.

I'll check back as somebody might have better info but I'm in the same boat. For now wma and MP3/MPEG files.

Re: No bluetooth from 730n RER

before you can pair your phone you will need to give your radio a 4 digit secure pen which will allow you to pair the phone you want to use.

after giving your radio a pin select done the radio will start go into pair mode. on your phone start a search select uconnect and enter the pin you just gave you radio. after apiring you should be good to go. as stated before you will only have phone pair no music streaming unless you get a lockpick.

I'll do some searching as well but what is a lockpick?

Desperately trying to get some A2DP on my new (to me) 2011 Grand Cherokee.


My guess is it's this:

Re: No bluetooth from 730n RER

While you might have the right company, this is certainly not the right model. I to have a 2011 WK2 limited with a 730N RER. As stated above you just need to sync your phone with the RER system using the 4 digit code. I've looked at adapter systems, lock-picks that allow you to stream music but it's only to the front speakers. I don't really know how this applies to the limited as it has a premium sound system that uses the individual components of speakers like the in doorframe tweeters, lower door midrange and woofers and a subwoofer on the right side of the cargo area. Maybe the lock pick would work for streaming music as the amplifier is built into the RER. There are 2 different RER systems used in the 2011. The 430N, which is the base grade and the 730N which is upgraded with Sat radio availability, Garmin GPS and is all fine using the hands free phone interface and 10GB hard drive that plays MP3/MPEG3, and WMA, but no Apple iTunes AAC forcing you to copy every track into MPEG3 mode and then put together on a playlist, burn to Music CD-R and then store to the hard drive. It's not a bad system unless you have had better phone integration in the past or systems like Harmon Kardon, with much better center channel speakers and microphones. You can always pay the ridiculous Mopar upgrade to kicker speaker and subwoofer but kicker is usually only better at the subwoofer and buyer aftermarket in a box with separate amp is about as cost effective but the location of subwoofer in the rear bulkhead doesn't allow for maximum performance.

The lock-pick listed above is for older Chyrysler vehicles that don't have touch screens and you actually replace the OEM Uconnect system with their OEM look 430N RER with better features that are quite annoying on all OEM RER systems such as not being able to use Navigation while not in park, even if the passenger is inputting data. I'm not a big fan of the GPS as it is woefully outdated in areas of the USA including much of the reconstructed US hwy 99 especially through Pennsylvania. You think Chrysler and Garmin would have a current map update for a reasonable fee since fitting the newer, larger screen OEM products in the 2011, is not an option even if you could find a good model used.

It's a frustration that I have just learned to deal with. I hard input my iPhone if I want to listen to a playlist over the hard drive. I wish there was a simple so,union to thus problem. I love my 2011 limited. Just over 50K with a few minor fixes that were covered by extended service warranty but far from a lemon. One of the most reliable Domestic vehicles I gave owned and a great foul weather vehicle, I would rate over my older Rover Discovery and a very good Mitsubishi Montero Sport, though both were excellent part time off road vehicles but the Jeeps creature comforts far exceed even current Land Rovers with better mileage and much more stable in foul Winter weather. If you find the correct lock pick let me know as $300 isn't a bad price. Uconnect is fine for lick outs that never happen, but I don't want to pour out over $1000 to fix a slight imperfection to the infotainment systems outdated parts and streaming music or access directly to the phones music base.

How so? The page specifically states it is for a 730N RER.

But what I don't know is if it will give me A2DP. I'll email in and ask. That's all I really need. I don't need the CD/DVD player, the HDD storage or AM/FM/SAT radio... I just want to be able to stream from my phone to the radio without connecting a cable.

At this point, I've simply ordered a small Bluetooth receiver that plugs directly in to the Aux jack. But that requires turning it on every time I get in the car. An annoyance but I can deal with it for now.

At this point, I'm considering upgrading to a 730N RHR which has the functionality built in. If I could sell my RER to cover most of the costs, I might be in...

No bluetooth from 730n RER

It can work in theory but the back wiring is made for vehicles from Chrysler during the Daimler-Benz era. You might just have to do some splicing and such. There are non OEM products available that can work just as well that will plug and play just as well. Pioneer for one.

If it's just pairing your phone then your existing RER should work just fine. Mine does. It's all in the set up in the menu above the Nav button on the right hand side of your console.

As far as the Bluetooth set up, I'm doing something similar with my daughters 2005 CRX because it's just more cost effective.

Ahhh, that makes more sense.

I emailed them to ask if that would add A2DP to the 730N RER and was told it would not. They suggested the AirPlay version of the lockpick.

I had no issues pairing my phone to the RER. It worked great and everything that it's supposed to be able to do works fine. But A2DP is probably the single most important feature in a radio for me.

At this point, unless I find an amazing deal on a RHR, I'll look in to doing something with a third party radio that does CarPlay sometime early next year. Until then I'll just have to deal with a separate Bluetooth adapter.
