Future RER Updates
 
With the discontinuation of the RER, will we continue to receive software operating system updates for radio/nav/uconnect? My iPhone 4 connection continues to be intermittent and I'm hoping for continued support. Somebody want to put my mind at ease?

There will continue to be updates, but not so sure that the iPhone 4 issue is going to be addressed. Chrysler is currently listing the iPhone 4 as "not supported" for the RER, and "supported" for the upcoming RER replacement radio (RHR). As of yet they have not acknowledged one way or another if there will be an update for the RER to address the iPhone 4 issues.

Milous, so are they addressing the iPhone 4 issues for the 430n?

Milious, that's going to leave a bitter taste in my mouth if they don't support iPhone 4 in RER. I'll be very pissed and I'm going to let Chrysler know about it. Bluetooth is very important feature. :(

How are updates delivered to these head units?

The iPhone 4 has a large number of bluetooth problems making it incompatible with lots of equipment. Search "iPhone 4 bluetooth" and you'll find page after page documenting these problems.

The RER complies with bluetooth specifications, the iPhone 4 does not. Direct your anger to Apple, not Chrysler.

After checking this website, it appears that they don't have any updates newer than 2009. I wouldn't recommend downloading and installing any of these at this time. Perhaps the owner of the website will update the information in the future.

There are updates in the forum. The site owner has been a way for awhile and has not actively updated the "Update" section, but there are updates from May and June of this year in the Software Update section in the forum I believe.

Me thinks I'll offer a new 730N for sale sometime soon.

Maybe that is the fix; Jeep should replace every RER with the new RHR to provide what is a promised feature/functionality.

So Apple screwed up their implementation of bluetooth and Chrysler should replace head units to accomodate Apple's design defect?

That reminds me of the old joke about the military parade where one guy is out of step, and his mother says her son is the only one doing it right :)

You should insist Apple fix their phone, or just get a different one. No other phones are having this problem with the RER and the iPhone 4 has a well documented track record of bluetooth problems.
