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

Have any of y'all had problems with reconnecting your phone via Bluetooth once you've already paired it? I'm having to pair again each time I get in. When I click on the device in my phone to try to connect it gives me a message to "make sure Bluetooth device (UConnect) is on and in range". It's really annoying. I have an iPhone 5 and the iOS is up to date. Also I have the 5-inch screen ( didn't shell out the money for the 18" wheel package lol). It pairs perfectly fine. Any advice would be appreciated.

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

I'm all for technology, but if the voice technology is crap from what I'm reading, and it only does what my phone already has the capability of doing, why would I pay for Sprint for a service I pretty much already have? Just trying to get the pros for this service.

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

What features am I missing out on if I don't subscribe to the monthly Sprint fee? I've played around with UConnect a bit during a test drive but don't know what comes standard and what is only available with a subscription.

Those are part of Sirius's Travel Link. They should work until The trial subscription runs out. I have never renewed so not sure what the cost is from Sirius for travel link

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

Is there a fee to use UConnect features - ie. Remote start via iPhone app or online etc - or is this an included service for the life of the vehicle???

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

??? Still haven't figured that one out yet. Not sure if you need the wifi hotspot subscription. Also, what are the requirements to be able to use the 911 and Assist Buttons? Do you have to have a subscription for those?

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

So apparently there are subscription fees associated with it but as of right now everything is just a free trial? I tried to google what the fees would eventually be but couldn't find anything. I have seen the fees for the wi-fi which are outrageous but nothing for UConnect Access.
