Iphone 5 pairing on 2012 Jk?

Well I had my Iphone 4s paired to my 2012 for about 8 months just fine.

Got the Iphone 5 the other day , and everytime I try to pair it, it will try for about 4 mins. then say pairing failed?

I deleted my I4s from the JK,, called Verizon , and they said to contact Jeep.

So Im here looking for anyone with the Iphone 5 and got it to pair with thier Jeep.

Thanks

New iPhone connector threatens car compatibility

As most new cars offer some sort of iPhone audio hookup, what does the new 19-pin dock mean for integration?

BMW's current cabin tech uses a USB port to connect with a standard 30-pin iPhone cable.
(Credit: Josh Miller/CNET )
BMW started the trend in 2004, offering native integration between car and iPod. Now almost every new car sold has some method of plugging in an iPhone or iPod. This integration is very convenient for drivers, as they can select music from the device through a car's own stereo controls.

However, reports of a smaller, 19-pin connector for the iPhone 5, replacing the current 30-pin connector, may bork iPhone integration with car stereos. Short of getting a new car to match your shiny new iPhone, what is a driver to do?

The good news is that many cars, such as those from Ford, BMW, and Honda, use a standard USB port to connect to the existing white iPhone cable. The new 19-pin connector is likely to use the same sort of adapter cable as current iPhones and iPods, so should plug right in. However, those existing cars may not be able to decode the signal from the iPhone 5 and its connector, depending on how much Apple reengineers its interface.

Ford's Sync software can be updated by the owner, which may be necessary to make it compatible with the iPhone 5. BMW owners using a snap-in dock will have to wait until BMW comes up with one designed for the iPhone 5.

Cars from Kia, Hyundai, Audi, and Volkswagen use an iPhone cable specific to the car. Those automakers will need to offer an adapter cable with the 19-pin connector, which car owners will need to buy if they want to patch the new iPhone to the car. BMW also used a cable similar to Hyundai's and Kia's in its cars from a few years ago. These will also need the new adapter cable.

Some cars, such as a Nissan Juke we tested recently, have a fixed 30-pin iPod connector in the console or glove box. This configuration is the worst-case scenario. However, Apple or another accessory-maker might step in and offer a 30-pin-to-19-pin adapter module, which could just be left hooked up to the car.

The implementation of most of these solutions may take some time. To fill the gap, there is always Bluetooth audio streaming. As Bluetooth is a standard, the iPhone 5 should pair with existing car Bluetooth systems right out of the box, barring any clever Apple engineering. Most new cars with a Bluetooth phone system also support audio streaming. The primary disadvantage of Bluetooth streaming is that you have to use the phone, instead of the car's stereo interface, to select music.

If all else fails, you can keep that old iPhone around to use strictly as a music storage device for the car

Thanks seven!!

I asked the second level tech support at Verizon if they heard any complaints with the new 5 not working with stereos

He said not yet............

O well

They will get it sorted out soon I'm sure

I haven't tried plugging it into the USB yet.


Thanks again

My iPhone 5 works with my 2013. I have the 730n. My pairing failed the first time, but worked the second time.

For future reference, one thing to look for is how the phone is trying to broadcast audio. You can switch on the phone itself from bluetooth to dock connector. I had this happen to me yesterday, and I started to worry a bit, but the phone was still trying to broadcast through bluetooth when I had the radio set to usb connector. Under the Music app, there's a "button" which will allow you to change the broadcast method.

I tried bluetooth and it works. I deleted my old iPhone so I don't know if that had anything to do with getting it to work. The only problem that I have is that when using Bluetooth audio the phone won't transfer all my songs to the 730. It only plays what's on my iPhone at that particular moment. Weird

You can't do file transfer with an iPhone unless you use iTunes or unless it's jailbroken. So transferring songs from the iPhone to the 730n is not possible.

I didnt explain correctly. With my old iphone when using bluetooth audio, my entire music library would appear on my 730 unit. Not actually transfered but the 730 had complete control of my music collection. Now with the iphone 5 the only song that appears and plays was the last song that was playing on my iphone. My entire music collection no longer appears on the 730 while using bluetooth audio. Plugging in iphone 5 by usb/lightning cable still allows full control and all music shows up on 730 while its connected just the same as my old iphone. Im not a tech guy but thats the best I can explain it.

Hmmm, My wife's 4S only displays a song counter, but doesn't list the track name or any library info. The next/prev on the steering wheel controls gets sent to the phone, though. It comes in handy for streaming pandora to the system, whereas the dock connector limits you to the files loaded. I thought it was supposed to work that way.

On my old iphone 3gs I was able to link up through bluetooth and scroll through all my music etc right on the 730. Pick artist song, playlists etc. Do they ever offer software updates for the 730 nav systems? If so how do you update it? Perhaps that would remedy everyones issues.
