xsdbs What phone and radio do you have? Also when you say that the notification comes thru when you're streaming audio, is it a sound or is it the verbal "new message from......"

Meh, I applied for my loan in less than 5 min through an app on the phone then when I found my jeep I wanted it took less to pay for it through the same USAA app.
I'm pushing 50 now but I do like some of these modern gadgets, as long as they work and are actually useful, I put the smart phone at the top of the list of useful items in the modern world.

Which is funny because the system in the GC, Dart, Durango, Cherokee, 300, 200, and I think charger (?) have one of the best systems out there. I guess it's just a matter of time before the wrangler gets it.

ctodd The problem with UConnect and the long announcement is only with phonebook entries. Therefore if you can block UConnect from acquiring your phonebook, you can avoid the trouble.

Here is how I got my iPhone to work.

First, factory reset UConnect. This will erase everything! I have my contacts synced on gmail, so I turned that off and it prompted me to delete contacts from phone. I said yes. So now I have a phone without any contacts and UConnect is empty. I then pair my phone to UConnect. Under the Bluetooth settings, to the right of UConnect, there is an info icon. Click it and you can turn off Contact syncing. I don't just turn it off, I uncheck everything first then turn it off. Then turn my gmail contact sync back on and the phone now has my contacts; however, UConnect does not.

You should be able to receive calls and immediately answer it.

xsdbs I remembered something but couldn't edit the original posting:
There are 2 prompts to turn something off:
1) Confirmations
2) Incoming message announcements

A) The "confirmation off" is used to shorten up the Uconnect prompts when you're placing a call. Uconnect won't ask you if the name that you spoke or the numbers you said to dial are correct. So when you say "call <name> or dial <number>, Uconnect will say "calling" instead of "calling <name>, is that correct?

B) Incoming message announcement is used for when there is an incoming text message (your phone has to support MAP in order for this to work), Uconnect will not tell you that there is an incoming message, there will only be an envelope on the bottom of the radio screen.
There IS NOT an option to turn off the incoming call notification.

I don't know about others but there's plenty of times that I'm driving and I'm in deep thought about something and if I just heard a slight beep or any other sound to let me know about an incoming call, I might not notice it. The slight 3-5 seconds that the prompt is, well at times it can be annoying but it's also one of those things that I just accept. I have other things that I can use my frustration on instead of this little loss of 3 - 5 seconds.
Here's how I accept incoming calls:
when she says "incoming call from........... press Uconnect button to accept..."
I wait till she says "incoming call from <whoever>, once she says the name I press the Uconnect button, there might be another word or two but the prompt ends sooner than if I press the button when she starts the prompt.

Now, when someone calls it will pop up on your screen but the system will not talk to you at all. You can answer the phone right away by hitting the phone button and the system will not care. Problem solved!

I just did this on my Town and Country with a 430 unit. I created an account just to post my success so others don't have to keep looking!
Great advise! Thanks for the post.

rustynail11 While it is better than nothing I think that Uconnect is horrible. I liked the bluetooth interface on my old Honda Accord much better.

I'm sick of that message b/c I don't care if I have a new text when I'm driving. I'd rather keep listening to the radio. Anyone know a way to turn that off?
03-02-2012 09:07 PM
xsdbs Tom, As you know I can speak mostly from experience of the 430N. However if the contact is in your (uh, my) phonebook, then the incoming call will display the contacts name. This of course as long as the pb has successfully be downloaded from the phone.

xsdbs Ok, so a second of patience is all that's really needed here and a little understanding of the system. If you have a contact in your phonebook and receive a call from that contact there are a few things that are happening and these things take time to process.
If you receive a call from a contact, the phone sends an "incoming call" message to the Uconnect module and also the number that is coming in. Uconnect then checks the phonebook contact list that has been downloaded to UC. Then when UC recognizes the contact name and number (this is all done in miliseconds) then UC starts on a "menu drive" to let you know that you have an incoming call from Frank (or whoever).
Shes already speaking and doesn't shut up just cause your wanting to speak. So if you let her start her message and you know when the right moment is to push the button, then you would have the call become active instead of you pushing, pushing and pushing the button and then being frustrated.
So when she starts to say "incoming call" from Frank, press Uconnect.......
After she says "press" this is the ok time. Try pressing "accept" or the UC button here. The call will become active.
Now on the otherhand, have you noticed that if someone calls you that is not in your contacts list, that call can be answered quicker than the phone call from the person that is in your contacts list. You see it's the menu that takes the extra time. Kind of like when you make a call to your Dr's office and you get into the menu loop. You can't just start pressing buttons, they don't do anything (most of the time) until the menu is read.
So breathe and wait the couple seconds till the word "press" is said.

pdubois64 The most annoying thing is when it doesn't connect at all, then I answer the call with my phone, and then half way through the call it connects with the delay.

This is just on my JK, only happened once, but I've probably only answered 5 calls, bought 2/15. Maybe it needs a firmware upgrade as well, but it was built Jan 11/12 so i would think it would be current, but I guess the radio could be a lot older.

Try that.
Yeah, but there is still like a 4-6 second delay before it actually picksup. It's not instant like in most vehicles.

The Audi uses a different system, not uconnect. However when i get a call and press the button it instantly connect. It's frustrating when I take the JEEP out and I get an incoming call; having to wait those 4-6 seconds to connect after pressing accept.

Tkalagher I will be watching this as it drives me nuts too. Press the button to answer and the Uconnect still has to go through the whole thing first.
