Does anyone know when the Pandora app will be available on the uconnect radios?
why not just stream is directly from your phone through BT Uconnect?

I have already done that. It would be better on my phones battery and data plan to be able to do it with the uconnect system

Have you read the manual?

" Uconnect®AccessviaMobileoffers additional Apps suchasAha,iHeartRadio,Pandora,Slackerandmoreto come.Itusesthedataconnection*throughyourcompatiblesmartphone,nottheonboardvehicleconnectivity"

My tablet doesn't copy and paste pdf's well, but you get the drift. You will still be using your phone's data plan.

Would you be able to control pandora through the radio / media center / uconnect? Or would you be controlling it on your phone itself? That would be no different running pandora via cell and bluetooth on any other car. I thought i had read that pandora was an actual app available ok the radio

I think its an app on the radio, however, you have to sync your phone to the radio so the app can use your phones data signal, to use the wifi on the uconnect that costs extra.... lol

Yup, this is correct. The Uconnect Pandora app will give you the ease of use/safety of controlling Pandora through the built-in 8.4 system, but will use your paired smartphone as the data source. Hope that helps.

And, since UConnect hasn't delivered on any of the promised apps, you're screwed any way.

if you have an iPhone, plug in through the USB. then on the phone start pandora.. now the radio will show the album art and allow you to hit next to skip a song.

Every historical attempt to open Pandora's box has been met with castastrophe. Not surprised that they are dragging their feet.:eek:

It will be part of the uConnect Access package. One year free, then you pay.

So, if your free Access package expires the day before Pandora pops out of the box..?:rolleyes:
Haha that's what I was thinking, I'm almost already 6 months into Uconnect Access free trial and don't even use it. By the time Pandora comes out it will probably already be over a year and I will have to pay.

Come on Chrysler!! Get the release going already!!
