Emails thru BT on 2012 GC Overland
 
I was streaming music from iPhone 4 yesterday over BT. I got an email and the audio system announced the sender and the subject line. This is a great feature except it only works when I am streaming music via BT. I am more of a sports radio guy and when listening to car radio, even with BT connected, I do not get the messaging feature. Am I out of luck or is there a way to have the messages announced when listening to radio? Rather than just when streaming music from iPhone?

This is insteresting. noticed a odd thing, started a thread on it as well. was using my mobile phone navigation, audible prompts where comming via the phone. I then took a incomming call and during the call connected over BT, the audible nav prompts from the mobile phone started comming through the 730 audio. When the call ended so did the nav prompts over the 730. Went back to the phone providing the nav audio prompts.

Depending on the phone and OS version it's running the Bluetooth capabilities are a mixed bag of protocols and profiles, and implementation of them with the individual installed applications on the phone also varies. ( http://developer.bluetooth.org/Knowl.../Profiles.aspx) Add the MyGig uconnect layer and we have what we're living with today.

I've read of users having good success with the iPhone 4s and Siri getting SMS text messages to be read aloud over bluetooth, but not composing new messages or responses.

My best guess is that an application, event or process evokes one of the supported protocols or profiles, such as the the Bluetooth A2DP profile with the MyGig, and you get the mobile device's audio stream on the MyGig. Anything that you might hear via the mobile device's speaker you'll hear over Bluetooth, even if that application or event doesn't evoke that particular protocol or profile, kind of like a hitchhiker. That might be why users report getting intermittent audio from a variety of different applications and events.

One way to skin this cat would be to create an app on the various platforms (iOS, Android) that interfaces with the MyGig/uconnect at the application layer. This app could establish the supported connection, say A2DP, and maintain it, and then everything that you'd hear on your device you'd hear on the MyGig. A little development would result in a solid app that could employ several profiles and protocols that would result in tight integration between phones/media player and the MyGig. I would expect the manufacturer to develop the app, but I also expected the system to work as marketed, which it doesn't... not a single device supports the SMS text feature on the 730N, not one. (http://www.jeep.com/download/pdf/Pho...y_Document.pdf)

I guess we can just wait and hope that Chrysler will make good on the marketing promise, but I'm not confident that will happen. Hell, even as updates are released in manufacturing, there is no acknowledgement that there is a problem and they are working on it, nor are those incremental update made available to owners. If it weren't for leaked versions from the OEM, HB we would have any hope.

This isn't my first experience with factory installed nav/media systems, and unfortunately none of them, Acura, Ford, Subaru and Jeep have been satisfactory.

Thanks Corp Cog, I don't have this issue with my Cadilac or Ford Synch so it's definetly a localized issue with the mygig/uconnect 730 RHR. I only say 730RHR because thats the only one I have. I've started created a android app that will open the audio protocal to the uconnect with no data going over it. We'll see if we can address it in the community.

I saw another thread that indicated MAP (Message Access Profile) is required in the phone in order to utilize the message functions through MyGig. I use Verizon. Only one or two of their current devices support this bluetooth profile. I intend to see if I can test this feature on the phone at the Verizon store with my vehicle.

When streaming music over Bluetooth from my iPhone 4S to my RHR, the volume will lower if I start using navigation on the MapQuest app. If I stop the navigation, the volume goes back up.

So, yeah, I share Corp Cog's frustration with the lack of consistency here.

While my experience is in the Windows Mobile world, some apps may have their own volume controls. See if you can link the nav volume to the system master volume. If not, try to adjust the nav app volume to match the system volume.
