That didn't work with my iPhone, but works perfect with the new Nokia. It will also ask if I want to have my texts read and I can speak and respond all through voice.

Keep in mind though that this has nothing to do with UConnect or the phone hardware. It's all controlled by the phone software.

This isn't unique to Jeep. I've never been able to get that functionality from my 2012 Durango either. This is all due to the way Apple allows Bluetooth connectivity and is not related to the Uconnect system itself.

JK_Jeff A little off roading. Hopefully going to lift it soon.

Geo Toad Installed the Mopar hood lock this morning. It took about 10 minutes to install with the included rivets. Thankfully the Jeep hasn't been broken into, but I should have bought a hood lock when I purchased the Jeep last Fall.

Oh and when I try to connect my phone or iPod, the controls won't go to the head unit directly, only the phone through Bluetooth.... Is this normal?

Runner750 Finally got to install my Spiderweb shade. Getting under the hardtop was the hardest part. Once I took the bolts out of the top and raised it up a little it was simple. Sure helps with the hot sun.

I have a 2013 Uconnect and I have the latest iPhone version (7.1) and have no issues....

n7011n I can report that my 2014 JK connects fine via Bluetooth to my iPhone 5s running current iOS. Barring the occasional glitch, I've had no issues. I should add that I have the Uconnect 430 (no nav).

wilmerc76 My iPhone connected with no problem to my '13. Is this only an issue with the '14s?

I just found out the same thing today. Couldn't find a filter anywhere. Looks like the dealer on Monday.
