    My IPhone 6 seems to only part time communate with Uconnect. The Bluetooth connection works ok, but, I get nothing through voice commands. Any suggestions? Note! The voice command has worked once or twice, then it quits and I cannot get it to re-connect.

    Do you mean Siri? Cause the iPhone does not support direct U Connect voice commands as far as I know.

    There is a UConnect app in the ITunes Store, however, it is written for the IPhone 5. This app (.99 cents) will help with the 6, but not with messaging, as I am told. I am a poor excuse for a computer geek, so any advise is helpful.

    OK. First off, in case you were not aware, you can only play back text messages on the iPhone through U Connect. You cannot use the U Connect voice system to compose text messages. In order to have the U Connect play back your received text message, you need to do the following:
    1. Make sure you have a bluetooth connection to U Connect.
    2. On the iPhone, go to settings, bluetooth and locate the U Connect entry under 'My devices'
    3. Press the little blue i, then make sure that 'show notifications' is on
    4. Also, make sure 'Sync contacts' is also on.
    5. the next 3 entries should have little blue checkmarks next to them. Exit.

    Now have somebody send you a text message while connected to U Connect and you should get an onscreen notification, that will allow you to 'listen'(press that) to your incoming text message.

    Unfortunately, at this time, U Connect and iPhone are incompatible to send messages due to encryption issues with the iPhone.

    *cough cough* Iphone sucks *cough cough*

    I can't stand how locked down Apple has their stuff, I-anything doesn't often play well with any other things that doesn't have an "I" in front of it. Maybe if enough of you all complain, then FCA and Apple can enter into some agreement that allows full access between each other.

    Sometimes the U Connect babe is on speed or something, she talks so fast I can't understand WTH she's saying (with text). With email, I can't imagine...:eek:
