Re: Uconnect Access for the 2014 is a GO!!

I am having issues with the navigation by voice. It barley recognises the streets I call to it. The other prompts work but Navigation to a direction is pretty bad. How is yours on voice recognition on navigation.

Re: Uconnect Access for the 2014 is a GO!!

I had all kinds of issues with the SD card as one file was not an mp3. Instead of the Uconnect ignoring it and going to the next song the whole system froze. The open door for 30 seconds is actually a reboot.

Yes starting your car from your phone is a waste and not worth it. It takes forever for the system to send out over the air your turn engine on or lock doors. This is a good app if your in your office and maybe you forgot to lock your car.

The VR and some of the infrastructure is not all that impressive so far.

Not surprising. No system is perfect.

What if you're in your office and want to warm up or cool your car?

Or ... if you take a train to work (like me) and park at Park & Ride location. The train ride for me is 15 minutes so if I remote start my car (even if it takes 5 minute) it will be nice and toasty by the time I get there. During the summer it will be nice and cool and not like an oven.

Another application for me would be gym, swimming pool. Middle of the winter it is nice to start up your car from the locker room so it waits for you nice and cozy.

On my current car I do have remote start but unless I'm at home it just doesn't work for me.

2 Questions

Since I don't own a cell phone, is there anything in the Jeep that needs to be registered or turned on? The Sirius radio says subscribed and is working.

If I was to get a phone so I could play with the Jeep's features, are there any economical choices?

Samsung makes some nice smart phones at decent prices. I have the S3 and it streams music via Bluetooth nicely. The hands free feature of the Bluetooth is nice while driving and talking. My ACC let's me text and drive! Lol

Anyone know when the iPhone5 will let you get texts through the 8.4AN?

Probably around the same time that they will allow legally jailbreak it. From what I have read it is not technical limitation but Apple limitation. There is something about bluetooth that they own and want developers to pay royalties on it.

So short answer... Probably not anytime soon. Use Siri instead.
