UConnect and iPhone 4
 
I seem to be experiencing bluetooth problems with UConnect and my iPhone 4. Sometimes it will connect and other times not. When it does connect it works fine. However, when I leave the vehicle and go to the office or home my phone locks up?? I have to do a soft boot to restart it. I've never had any problems before in the past with my phone. Anyone else having this problem with their 2012 WK and any idea's how to fix it? I've seen numerous threads about the problems with the iPhone but thought Jeep would have fixed this by now. :confused:

I have similar problems with the iPhone 4 and UConnect, whether I try to connect via Bluetooth or USB. Sometimes works, mostly doesn't. The song info display on the 730N will update as the iPhone goes through the songs, but no sound from the speakers. I tried a different USB cable, tried both USB ports. Sometimes the display will show "STOPPED" in red, sometimes not, but no sound regardless.
I have a Spracht WS-4010 bluetooth portable speaker in my bedroom, and it works perfectly with the iPhone.
I'm hoping a radio software update will fix it, but haven't had much time to spend on it.

Same problems. Inconsistent operation, especially on restarts.

Is everyone on iOS 5.1 on their iPhone 4? Probably not helpful but I remember having compatibility issues every other update in my Acura. Glad I'm back to being a Jeep guy again.

My iPhone has iOS 5.1.
This evening, I drove the Jeep for about 2 hours coming home from the airport. At first, I tried playing from the iPhone with Tune-In radio app. Wouldn't play. So I listened to satellite radio for a while. Then I tried the iPhone again. Still wouldn't work. After that, even the satellite radio, Hard Disk, AM, and FM channels wouldn't play. In satellite mode, the song info would change as different songs were playing, but no sound from the speakers. Also, the phone function wouldn't work. After I got home and left it shut off about 1/2 hour, the satellite, AM, FM, and HDD work again. Haven't tried the iPhone since.
A similar thing happened a few days ago - and sitting overnight fixed it.
I have un-paired and re-paired the phone to no avail.
I'm now wondering whether a radio software update might help. I'm on version 2.116 with a 730N RHR.

call the dealer and ask about an update to 2.120 or look into the link below.

I have an iPhone 4 and it has always been perfect since the day I bought my 2012 Overland. I have been very happy and LOVE the bluetooth audio streaming. My iPhone 4 is always up to date with the latest software.

Re: UConnect and iPhone 4
 
Do you also have a Harman radio? (730 or 730N) or do you have one of the Mitsubishi radios (430 or 430N)?

I have an iPhone 4S and have this happen occasionally, but when I do my BT connection to my Escort Radar detector's Escort Live system also is inop. In my case, a restart of the iPhone does the trick.

No problems with my 2012 Overland (730N) and an iPhone 4S

I have to reboot my 4S a couple times a month for different reasons.
