    Same for iOS. I was hoping that it would include the new features, such as transferring nav guidance from the phone... but I don't see any new functionality.

    Must be just bug fixes. I don't see anything new in the features department.

    The iOS version says:
    Increased stability and performance
    Redesigned user interface

    So it looks a bit better in iOS, but still no vehicle choice or color change:mad:

    I want the color choice. I don't own a red car. Seems like such a simple thing.

    I just upgraded my iPhone 4s to a 6 last week and was hoping that it would interface with UConnect better (text messaging, etc.) but so far, no joy! WTH??

    I learned how to get this going. Go to settings, bluetooth and find the Uconnect entry. Click the 'i' button next to it, and make sure that 'Show notifications' is enabled. That will allow you to receive text through the UConnect. Too bad we can't send, but otherwise, it works pretty good.

    Great advice. Thanks! At least if I can see (or hear) the text through the flat screen, it's half the battle. As you probably know, you can dictate the message you want to send by hitting the microphone icon on the bottom of the screen and then hit send as a work around. I hope they fix this, though, sooner rather than later.

    I didn't try that but will, then it is 3/4 of the battle won....:D It is my understanding that the reason sending is not supported with the iPhone has something to do with Apple's encryption on the phone itself, not being compatible with U Connect. I also hope they get it worked out.

    For the iOS version, mine shows the Challenger in green, so I'm not complaining there... If you're talking about the in-dash Navigation "Car" selection (red only), agreed completely.
