    Is there any way to get your android to interact with the uconnect and the stereo? I didn't know if there was an app or what not. I would like to be able to talk to the phone instead of paying to use the feature and uconnect service.

    The blue tooth (text/voice) features do not require UConnect.

    You still need to pair your phone to uconnect to be able to use those functions. But, you should be able to just plug your phone into the usb connection in the center console and use the music functions.

    It is paired but I have never plugged it into the USB. Guess I will give that a go. Thanks!

    You can also blue tooth music from your phone. USB is so old school.

    Ya I get the Bluetooth for music I am wanting to use the phone through the speakers to send texts or have them read without having to pick up the phone.

    Yes phones calls will be heard through your speakers. No need to touch your phone while driving the car. Don't your text pop up on the screen? You can give voice commands in response to a text received or us predetermined responses to the incoming text. I suggest reviewing the operating manual for your unit. Lots of info there.

    Good luck.
