UCONNECT annoying "incoming call from"
 
Hey Guys... Without going into too much detail since i'm sure we all know too well what i'm talking about. :banghead: Is there any way to either disable notification or at the very least shorten it? It's so annoying.. :) Thanks in advance.:dance:

I don't have that announcement with my 730N but then the uconnect works about 2/3's of the time. Do you have the 730 or 430?

patastinky 02-28-2012 07:38 PM

I am pretty sure it's the 430, but now that you said 730 i'm not sure.. The uconnect works all the time i don't have an issue with it, but it's just that when an incoming call comes in it has that long annoying message... :-x

The UC in my Grand Cherokee doesn't say that, it just says "Incoming call, press uconnect button to answer" I haven't even noticed what it says in the new JK but I think it's the same.

Oh man... I think i bought a Grand Cherokee navi then :( :doh:Is there any chance i can perhaps still edit it from saying that? My Audi just beeps and responses right away. The uconnect has delay when you press accept, just wanna shorten that.:punk:

I just reach over and press the phone button on the radio and it goes right to the call.
Try that.

Does the Audi use Uconnect or a different system? Uconnect has it's issues for sure. My iPhone 4 when they first came out would connect 1 of 10 calls if that until they finally came out with an update for it. Just make sure you have the latest update, it can be found on certain sites.

That works too...dam $173 fine here now if a cop sees a phone anywhere near your face:(

Tkalagher 02-28-2012 09:00 PM

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.

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. :banghead:

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.

tomthbomb 03-01-2012 08:09 PM

If an incoming call is from someone in your address book should their name be displayed on the screen or just their phone number?

Dusthol 03-01-2012 09:06 PM

Name and number comes up

DrHolliday 03-01-2012 11:52 PM

I'm sick of the delay and the message I get every time some one sends me a text...

'you have a new SMS text message from *delay* -contact name- press the uconnect phone button and say "text message" to read it'

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?

DrHolliday 03-02-2012 10:03 PM

Maybe it will be like the first time I tried setting it up, I got lost in the menus right as my wife hopped in the Jeep to here it say "did you say, 'I love you'?" My wife just asked what me and the Jeep are talking about :rofl:

Has anyone figured this out yet in the last year? The stupid notification voice is longer than the actual number of rings, and she's still talking by the time I answer the phone.

:dance:Yes. Hit uconnect, say settings, and then listen to the prompts. One of the options is "incoming notifications" or something like that. Speak that option, it will ask if you want to turn it off, say yes.

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!

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

If this works than I am indebted to you. The stupid readout has been the source as my anger for awhile now.

Great advise! Thanks for the post.

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.

After reading all these posts, I'm glad that I don't have the U-connect, and even gladder that I don't have a cell phone. More tech = more problems.

Think about it....these are really "first world" problems.

You're being facetious right? It is far from awesome, but you may only have experience with UConnect. It may very we'll be a "first world" problem, but it has real costs for both the customer and Chrysler. There is a race going on right now for infotainment systems and Chrysler will loose if they keep selling flawed designs. They need to focus on vehicles and leave infotainment to a third party and I don't mean mopar.

Set up - SMS notifications - off - turned off the annoying text announcement

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.

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.

Fun fact this does not always work. Uconnect still tells me there is a text when I get one when I am listening to streaming music over Bluetooth. It is really annoying going into settings and hearing it is off but knowing it isn't. I would NEVER buy this half baked excuse for a nav and sound system. Biggest mistake I made on my Jeep by far.

David9962000 10-13-2015 09:26 PM

Is there a solution to turn off the voice for calls? I have prompts off on my 15 JK with a 430N.

Thanks.
