Has anyone else updated their iPhone to iOS 12 yet? Since I updated, my text messaging no longer works with Uconnect? The messaging button is grayed out on my screen.

Check to see if “Show Notifications” is toggled off in your Bluetooth settings for Uconnect (tap the “i”. Mine was toggled off after the update. At the very least you’ll start receiving messages again on your Uconnect screen. Give that a shot.

Thanks, yup it was toggled to off on mine too. I'll have to verify in the car when I go to lunch.

I had run the beta so maybe mine never got reset.
It’s been working fine.

I was running the Beta too and it stopped working right after I installed the beta. I thought it would correct itself after the official version was installed.

You've got some great advice here. I know with new software updates, you may lose some of the functionalities you had with the previous update. Our engineers test out the software updates and put those findings on https://www.driveuconnect.com/support/software-update.html. Send me a direct message with your VIN if you have any other questions.

When all else fails, try removing and re-pairing the device...

My software is the most current (VIN 1C4-RJFJG3HC-801017) The UCONNECT version is:UCONNECT_8.4_RA4_17.43.01_MY17_NAFTA. The messaging function has been grayed out since I installed ios 12. Jeep's customer service line was their usual moronic self, stating...well if Apple updated their software it's not our fault.
we'll maybe fix that in our next update, maybe. ... That was last February.
Are there any solutions on the horizon? My lease has only two another year and a half.

I can't remember what I actually did to fix the issue. But it had something to do with a setting on the phone that had gotten changed with the iOS 12 update. Check your Bluetooth UConnect settings to make sure "Show Notifications" is turned on. I think that might have been the setting.

Local shop Forman said apple updates can actually cause damage to the uConnect system. He said hundreds of nav systems have had to be replaced because of this.

It's more like FCA's own uConnect updates damage head units. :rolleyes: Much easier to blame Apple, IMO.

Hi Slider2000,
We recommend reaching out to Canadian Customer Care to see if they may be able to further assist. I have included a link with their contact information below!
