Nice detail, but not an option on my list. When activating eng mode, do you need to be in any specific screen?

Nope, if you got into Engineering Mode then that's the in the list (at least it is on my unit). Maybe your version of the system software is too old?

Good news. I ordered the map upgrade from Navteq. It came with the radio software upgrade, which was installed before the map upgrade. After the software upgrade the radio now lists the option to enable the uconnect. Afterwards I was able to sync my iPhone.

Ordered the uconnect microphone from a amazon dealer $35 shipped. So far so cheap.

My concern now will be microphone placement.

Thanks all for the suggestions.

I would search google for the mygig updates. Because of SOX (a US law that has both good, and BAD parts) they should technically be free.

$165 shipped. Since my maps were 4-5 yrs old many streets didn't exist. Needed the update and it brought my radio software level current at the same time.

Little pricey but map upgrades are not optional and still gonna be a lot cheaper than the service dept option.

I had actually ordered the MYGIG update from a Jeep/Chrysler dealer. No cost. They're in no hurry to deliver. I ordered the map updates two weeks later and it arrived first. Not sure if the update from dealer will be any more current.

Nice, I'm just too lazy to drive all the way there and it's quicker to stick it on a USB stick and go

Ooo-Rah!! The mike was delivered over the weekend. Since I was off today I took the 30 mins to install and activate. Total out of pocket. $200. $35 for the mike and $165 for the GPS map upgrade, which included the radio software update. (I'm still waiting on the free MYGIG software update from Chrysler)

Helpful tip: be sure the compass connector is free and accessible when you slide the radio back in. I got extra practice removing the radio and reinstalling.

Also, you don't have to completely remove the column plastic facia, but unless you have 3 hands it makes the radio removal much easier.

Tools required: Flathead screwdriver, 9/32 socket or nut driver. If using ratchet use 1" extension.

Gotta share that STEVE WHITE MOTORS on Amazon took my order for the mike on 2/22 and it was on my front porch on 2/25. Shipping $4.43. Nice.
