Android and usb/Uconnect problems
A new member, so I hope im posting in the right area.
Well heres my dilemma,
Ive got an australian delivered 2011 (my12) Jeep compass sport (2.4ltr Manual 4x4), and i seem to be having a android/uconnect problem.
I bought my Compass from a dealer about a yr ago (not a trade in, dealer used) and it didnt come with factory installed uconnect.
I opted to have it dealer installed before I purchased it, and ive been using it fine for a yr, no issues.
Recently ive gotten sick of crappy looking cigarette usb chargers and found out my uconnect had the option of a usb port I was never told about.
After abit of research I realised i already had the cable I needed and it was only a 5min job, plus I had the benefit of being able to stream music via usb rather than bluetooth (bitch on the battery).
Whats a man to do... called the gf, told her id b abit late for dinner plans that night (we all know these things never go to plan) got out there, popped the stereo surround out, took the stereo out, and found the uconnect module.
It took me abit of googling, so before I go on ill post this here to:
If you have uconnect installed (factory or dealer installed) all you need for a usb port that charges (and what seems to work for all but me) and streams music, is a male mini usb to female usb a.
I wired the cable up to my centre console, and, well, the charging aspect worked... slightly (usb streaming, not at all), but it was enuff to get me to dinner before she could get TOO angry. Lol.
Anyway, afew days later i realised my phone was charging really slow. Quick test and found out my charge rate is only at 460mAh. I also called mates with 2013 Grand Cherokee, 2013 Compass and 2014 Wragler, yet theirs all seem to charge at a faster rate (1000mAh), and they can also stream music, where as I cant. I tested an old iphone and usb stick loaded with music, they all streamed and worked ok, so it seems to be only my galaxy S4...
So, my dilema is, with a galaxy s4, what am I doing wrong??? Where is the problem that im not seeing with this set up??? All my friends have tested with a GS4, we all have different headunits but all have uconnect (ive got a REL HU) and they can all stream, yet I cant.
I also seem to have a slower charge rate, but im not to bothered about that as im going to custom install a higger speed usb
