Re: Bluetooth music issue

I have my doubts that iOS 7.1 will fix anything, mine was working fine with 7.0.4 also. It sounds like it is more the vehicle than the phone. The TSB you mentioned does bring up an interesting point though, as soon as I bought my GJC, I updated the uConnect to the latest firmware 13.48.3 to take advantage of the "via mobile" features. You can check your uConnect version by going into settings, and about. The firmware is available online as are instructions to update. All you really do is enter the last 8 digits of your VIN. It provides you with the software which you then load on a USB thumb drive and stick into the media hub. It takes about 20 minutes to complete.

Re: Bluetooth music issue

This is a common issue with SD cards.

I also have the same issue and using Android instead.

I don't know where the problem is, could be the manufacturer of the SD card, but basically sometimes the system fails to read the card when it boots up. When that happens it also disables playback from any other devices.

My recommendation is to keep the SD card unplugged when you're not planning on using it. Also try USB drives instead, after encountering this issue with my SD card I bought a 16GB thumbdrive and that seems to never give me the problem the SD card gives me. I've personally never tried another SD card myself but I've heard of others switching cards and not encountering the issue.

Bottom line, this is a problem with Uconnect and certain SD cards.
It has NOTHING to do with Android or iOS.
iOS is a problem of it's own but amazingly this time it is not the cause, har har.

Re: Bluetooth music issue

It is because quite frankly Jeep have released a product like Uconnect half cocked. I am sorry to hijack the thread but the amount of problems these cars have straight out of the box is quick frankly amazing. Too much technology and not enough experience or personnel to pull it off.

It is not good enough in my opinion to produce an awesome car (which it is ) and have the amount of issues they have with Uconnect, transmission issues, figment issues etc etc and it is OK because it is an awesome car and heaps cheaper than the competitors. To me this is quickly taking away from the " this is an awesome car" comment.

There are plenty of people who have not had any problems. I agree that they would look at this post as what are you talking about. But there are way too many that do, no matter how little the issues may seem.

I know what you are talking about phillysrt, sometime it works, sometimes it doesn't, there is no real pattern to it, you have to continue to shift through the cd/radio/ iPod etc etc to get it working. Then you plug it in via USB and you have to hit play to get it working again even though it was just working on Bluetooth.

It is just another problem with a lot of these cars.

Sorry, rant over.

Re: Bluetooth music issue

sometimes the iphone will be paused in Itunes, just press play and that should sort it if its connected!

You're correct. Jeep released the 2014 WK2 without putting in the proper R&D on the vehicle. Their logic is to put it out into the real world and then address the problems that will show up.

Some logic, huh?
