I don't use an iPhone...but Connectivity (which is now over-priced with the 2013 price increase) was still a must have option for me.
The USB port, EVIC, and mic being set up makes it a "near must" have option. Same with satellite radio.....even if you don't listen to it.....you are ordering to have to hardware pre-installed and turned on. That way, a future Nav upgrade might be plug and play.
On the flip side...yeah....I have heard there are issues with the i5...but which will you have longer....the Jeep or the i5?
I just noticed that there is already a current thread on connectity and the i5.
The only things you won't be able to use on your iPhone 5 through Uconnect are Siri and spoken/voice dictating text messages. The music, phone and navigation features all work fine. I currently have the iPhone 5 and before it, the 4S. Same results with both.
