So this has happened 4-5x so far. I get in the car, connected over Bluetooth and sometimes Bluetooth and Android Auto and all of a sudden the Radio stops playing and my UConnect system shows I am on a call with my own phone number.

I've gone into my phone and of course not in a call.

So I have to go into Phone on the UConnect screen and click either "transfer" or "end call"

Anyone else having this issue or do I have a defective head unit?

2nd issue
When receiving an SMS from a number not in my phone book the system states (each letter and the equals): TN=SMS and then the phone number

Hi Zabes64,

I'm sorry to hear about this occurring. If you'd like, please send a PM with your VIN so we can investigate further.

Same problem. Evertime I plug my phone in, the radio stops. When I unplug, it's on a call with my name. Makes Android auto useless. Technology is great till you expect it to work and it doesn't.

Wish they would post a fix instead of an investigation request. Looks like I just have to make an appointment with the dealership and probably have to rent a car while they take forever to look at it for 20 minutes.

I can't believe how much money I pay them for something that I will need to get a rental car just to have them look at it. Great look cars horrible service department. My last dodge they gave me free oil changes. It was easier just to pay someone else. 3 hours each time just to change the oil.

I had this problem a while back, right after one of the updates as I recall. I think I fixed it by deleting the phone's BT connection and re-pairing it. Maybe. It went away somehow.

I'd look at all your Apps.

All an app has to do to stop the radio and make it appear as a "phone call" has initiated is start a "Hands Free Protocol" audio route.

Apps like Google Maps, Waze, and my own App offer this as an option on iOS. And the Radio will look like a phone call to no where has started on the Radio. The UAQ Radio is annoying dumb on this and won't return to the last app (Radio, Music etc.) when this happens (audio ends). It's NOT always a phone call. The older uConnect Radio handled this better. Just an iCon at the top with timer for the length of the call.

Any way. Android can do this as well. But Google Maps and Waze don't offer the option. Nor does my own app because I can't figure how it's done yet. But I know some apps can do it.

I highly suspect it's your phone doing this and the radio is just doing what it's told "Start a Phone Call". Could be the OS on your phone too because every brand plays their own games with Android.

Which phone and Android OS are you running?

P.S. Do you have a call blocker app or blocked calls? It could be that, that's coming in.

Maybe. I don't know, sorry. I'm on Android.

But the more I think about it, the more I think it just stopped doing it after a few days... gremlins.

Mine is doing this too! I disconnected and re-paired my phone and it worked for a few weeks. Now it’s doing it again!!
