iPhone ap for 2014 GC models
 
I just bought a 2014 Jeep GC and want to add the iPhone ap so I can start it remotely, etc. I look forward to starting it from the plane next winter and hopping in a warm car! I went to the Uconnect website and it said its still not available for Jeep, yet I saw a forum member on a thread mention they had it.

Is it available yet? If so, how do I get it? I asked my salesman and he wasn't even aware of it.

Go to the apps on your phone and search ucomnect. I have it on mine

Sweet, thanks for your quick response! How do you get a uconnect ID?

I think you have to sign up on the ucomnect website

Yeah, I messed around and figured that out. I registered on the site but when I enter my VIN to register the vehicle it gives me a system error message. I'm hoping its just a temporary issue. Maybe system maintenance over the weekend? Anyway, I can't seem to get it to recognize my vehicle.

I hooked mine up on Wednesday when I took my '14 Overland home. The iPhone app works great!

Only gripe: it can take up to a minute or so for the remote start signal to be sent from the phone before the Jeep actually starts up. Or for anything to activate, that is (honk, lock, unlock, etc.).

Can't really complain - it's a sweet feature.

I too had a problem registering mine. Keep trying and it should eventually work. I do notice that sometimes I have to log-out and log back in to get the app to work (do this if the full control panel does not appear).

I have also seen 1 minute plus before the command get's executed. Be patient, not big deal.

I've had the same issue with the delay. It's not a big deal since I would only use this if I'm outside the range of my keys and I haven't started heading to the car yet.

Well, figured it out. It finally recognized my VIN allowing me to register my vehicle. It does take a minute or so to recognize the command which is ok with me. The main two times I can see myself using this is when I get off the plane after a trip in the winter and at the office in the winter. Both times I would want it would take me more than a minute to get to the car anyway. Awesome, awesome feature!

Will these services eventually be a monthly /yearly charge?

I believe so. It comes with a one year free trial. What the charges are after that I'm not sure.

I hope they make it a la carte and offer a low fee for just the lock/unlock. I think that is all I would ever use and only in an emergency.
