This is exactly what I'm thinking - I currently stream Slacker off my iPhone 5 via BT; artist, album name, and song (but no album cover art) shows up on the RA4's screen currently and the sound quality is excellent - other than possibly displaying the cover art in color on the RA4 screen, I don't see how using the Uconnect Slacker app could be an improvement over what I'm currently enjoying.

Re: UConnect... New programs downloaded today

Will probably allow the use of steering wheel/radio buttons to control the app.

I went out to my GC at lunch after uninstalling and reinstalling the app on my Android phone and now all the apps on the radio are gone. No Pandora, Slacker, IheartRadio, etc. Just the ones that were on there before. I went ahead and reset the radio, but the apps still aren't there. Uconnect do something we don't know about?

And no....not plugging my phone in via USB. My iPod stays plugged into that port. My phone is connected via BT.

Re: UConnect... New programs downloaded today

Can you not get the UConnect App installed onto a BlackBerry?? I didn't see that phone as a choice when trying to download the app.

If you connect your iphone via cable and stream as ipod not bt you will get cover art as well. Usually I just use BT to stream pandora, unless I'm driving longer distances than I plug it in. I get cover art and keep it charged. Less RF stuff going through my body as well.

Re: UConnect... New programs downloaded today

Maybe it gives you the ability to like or dislike songs. Can't do that without picking up the device currently.

I just checked with Uconnect and they confirmed the app push of Pandora, ihartradio, and Slacker Radio some Vehicles was a result from testing before they officially deploy. That probably why some folks saw the apps for a short period. No official date was known.
