Bluetooth Cellphone Hands Free Quality on The Highway

Pulling the trigger soon and if I do it will be a 2 door hardtop.

My question is about the cellphone integration.

Is the factory Uconnect system useable going down the highway?

Or is there too much ambient/road noise to be intelligible?

I will probably install my Pioneer 4200NEX soon after getting the Jeep so if anyone has that unit, how does it do?

Just want to make sure that it doesn't sound like I'm in a washing machine to the people on the other end as I do a ton of calls from my car.

Even with the soft top, I find it works fine if the windows are up and the top is closed.

I do own a 4 door but I imagine this still applies. In my experience it is completely fine. I have used it on the highway with no problems. I have also used it up to 50-55ish mph with the soft top completely back and the front windows up. In those instances the person on the other end never complained.

I too plan to make the switch to a 4200nex at some point to gain the back up camera and CarPlay features.
